How much does ehow pay per how to article these days?

July 31, 2009 6:55am CST
I have been a member of ehow for quite some time but I just submitted my first ehow article today, how much should I expect to receive for that article in upfront payment? It was about credit cards. I have heard rumours that the pay is bad but I read in the faq that you can be paid as much as $10 dollars per article.

With writing sites, you should keep your expectations low. If you write a really successful article, you can make a lot of money from it...but your first article probably won't be a hit. Don't expect to make oodles of money at first -- approach it as a learning process instead. Try different things and see what works. You can absolutely make $10 or more from an article, but just don't expect to make $10 from every single article you write...even really good eHow writers probably can't manage that!

You can make 50+ an article at constant content, 15-20 at demand studios, w/ revenue shares you can easily make 5+ monthly per article at sites like hubpages, Associated content and eHow Try reading this, its actually written by someone who writes for all 3 sites

Hi. I was surprised by your post. Actually I didn't know that ehow pays $10 per article until you've posted it. Did they pay you already? How many articles have you done?

Well, i'm not sure as to how much they are paying per article as i'm not a member of that site.. hehe ^_^ MOst of the time, 'price' per article should be stated in the TOS or FAQ in that particular site so that users will know.. PLus, i dun think it can be as high as $10 per article because it's way too high.. IMagine, what will be the minimum then??

If you're going to join writing sites in order to earn money, it really helps to read the information on each site so that you understand how you get paid. Nobody who writes for eHow would ever say anything about upfront pay. If you read that in a FAQ, then you were on some other site. The kind of pay you're talkling about ($10.00 an article) is available on a few sites, but they are very selective and very strict about the quality of the work they accept for payment. Most sites, like eHow, pay per view. Depending on the quality of your writing and the interest it has for readers, you can make a lot of money or just about none. But you can expect the money to pile up over time, maybe a long time. For some people, it can take months to get to payout, but the more work you put into it, the more you will make, and the faster it will come.

I did not know much about ehow payment policy. I think ehow pays only to members from USA. Correct me if i am wrong. Thanks.
