I joined up with them two days ago. I've written four articles and already had one accepted by the client. I hope to find out about the other three by tomorrow. Hopefully they'll all go through. The site is very easy to use and seems straight forward. The minimum for payout is 10.00 which isn't bad at all for a writing site. They don't pay great, but it's good for me right now. I got 3.18 for the article that was accepted. I only get 3 something for my articles on Associated Content so it's all good with me.

Hey there. I have never heard of textbroker.com. Sounds like they have a pretty low minimum payout, which is nice. And that they are paying you about the same that Associated Content has paid you, so that's cool. I'll have to check them out and see what's going on there. I have been trying to stick with Associated Content and concentrate most of my efforts there. Also, I use Constant Content and have had some luck there.

I've sold one with Constant Content. I did two more for them day before yesterday that I hope the lady who requested buys.

Hi sunnflr. I've had a decent percentage of my Constant Content articles sell. But, I've only written for the public requests, so that helps. I write specifically what publishers request. I feel like the chances are better they will sell that way. Good luck with all your writing.

I signed up but I haven't written anything for them yet. I was rated at a level 3, which I was a bit disappointed with. Maybe after writing a few things that will go up?!

They started me at level 3 also. Maybe they start everyone there and then see how you do. Sorta like Helium starts everyone in the middle.

Hi my friend, Good job on the article that was accepted! I went ahead and joined. I still have to do the first article to see where they'll place me at. I'm going to try to do it before I go to sleep. I wanted to finish another article I was doing for AC first. Thanks for the information good luck on your writing! [i]Happy MyLotting, Char[/i]

I signed up but haven't had time to do anything yet because hubby and I have been catching up on housework and our niece was here visiting. I am going to put some articles up tomorrow. Congrats on the money you made with them already! Even if it is a small amount, money is money and we all need every dime we can get right now. :)

True, I can use every penny I get right now. I'm sure if I keep improving I'll expect to make more for my articles, but right now I just like that people actually pay for them.

I am not in the US. This means if I sign up with TextBroker I can earn UP TO $200 before having to fill in a W9 form. So I stop my earnings when they reach $195 every month. I wait for payout, close my old account and open a new one immediately. it sucks to have to do it this way - but that's how it has to be for a non-US writer. Still I can't complain at an extra $195 per month for easy stuff on top of the professional writing I do as well. It comes in handy.

I haven't earned 195 the whole time I've been with them, so I'd say you are doing pretty good. Sorry bout the tax stuff. I know it is a problem for people not in the US with quite a few sites.

I have heard a lot about Textbroker latley, which is bad for me because I don't want that much competition but I accept it. I do write for textbroker and it's fairly easy. I like it better than writing for Associatedcontent, which is another site I write for. I think my favorite thing about it is that it has a fixed rate per word. Associatedcontent does not. It's an excellent way to go. I also enjoy the fact that you don't have to write super long articles either. That's a bit of a turn on. I don't know though. Everybody has their own personnal preferences. This is mine.

Hope you're still having good luck with textbroker. I haven't did much with them in the last few months, been too busy writing for everywhere else!

I joined them, but then learned that they're US-only due to some weird laws or something. So I couldn't work for them. Boo! :(

Sorry to hear that. Maybe they will change it in the future. I don't make much with them, but at this point in the game, anything is good!

Good luck with textbroker. I recently signed up with Bukisa. You might want to check them out also. You can put non-exclusive articles from other places up there to earn double from the same articles. I have a referral link on my profile page if you are interested.

i am relatively new to this writing for money thing...started with mylot and I have been making pretty good money here. I signed up for textbroker and did the test article. Now I wait to see how it did and get my rating. Guess there are a few more writing sites that I need to explore. Thanks for the tip :)

You should also check out Associated Content, Helium, and eHow. Good luck!

sunnflr, $90.77 is what textbroker.com has paid me so far! I started out on a 3 star rating...which you know pays .01 a word.....now I'm up to a 4 star rating...and making about $25 a day....the site is awesome! I also write on the side for Associate.com and Helium....and a few other sites...but I came across a site yesterday that I think might bring me some good money for articles I write out of the blue. The site is called ArticleSale.com. I have a few articles on there....this is where you can set your own prices for your articles....very good idea considering we all work for peanuts!! Good luck fellow writers.....let me know how you do!! -Liz
