Hi, Can anyone please recommend some good and legit paid-to-write sites? I came across mylot looking for them. Writing is an hobby of mine and I usually write about tech stuff like gadgets, video games, computers along with music and engineering related content..

If you like writing reviews you could try reviewstream. I've been paid twice, so they seem legit. They're particularly interested in reviews about electronics and travel, and once you find out what they want, it's easy to get the reviews accepted.

My first reviews got accepted/rejected after about 24 hours at first, but it has taken up to 3 or 4 days, especially if there's a weekend or a holiday. I don't think there's a limit, I usually post mine in "bursts", it's easier to write 10 in a day than 1 every day, and they never complained about that.

I also think that Reviewstream is a great site, I have ben paid by them once and am almost ready to cash out a second time. IN the beginning it may be hard to get accepted but once you get an idea about the kind of thing they want, you will get automatically approved without worrying about the wait. I have only had one of my reviews deleted, and I've written hundreds. You do have to work at it, but you can make a lot of money on RS.

Well, I think opportunities for writing jobs online is more favorable for US, Australian, Canadian and British citizens. Many good paying sites are limiting their membership for these citizens. For international users the opportunities as not as great. Like in Associated Content, although international users can participate we are not entitled to the benefits given to the choice citizens. To me Reviewstream has far been the most productive. Payout is 50 but I prefer to receive mine at 100 dollars. It is easily reachable anyway provided you know how to write descriptively and at least 500 words. Based on my experience if the writings are below 500 words they will only pay bulk rate. You should also know what products command higher review rate. Food products are always at bulk rates whether 500 words or more. But medicine, health products, electronics command higher pay.

I agree with response no.4, Reviewstream is a good and legit site. I have reached already payout with them and they pay quite fast (less than 2 hours). As you write already about items like electronics, computers and similar stuff, I'm sure you will get the regular rate. Just make sure that you have used the products yourself.

Welcome to Mylot! I belong to several writing sites. Most are international sites. I noticed in your profile that you were from India, so you would find these useful. Feel free to private message me for the details. Have a great day :)
