Get Paid to Write: 110 Websites that Pay Writers

websites that pay you to write

How would you like to get paid to write

It has been a while since I last published my list of websites that pay writers.

A lot has happened since publishing the last two lists; some of the sites are no longer active, some of the sites stopped accepting contributions from freelance writers, and there isn’t as much flexibility in the categories of the previous lists since most of the sites featured were either design or tech sites.

That has changed, though.

This new list is more comprehensive, includes more sites and is updated for 2015. In fact, I’m finalizing this list on the 12th of January, 2015.

So what’s included?

  • 110 websites that pay writers, verified for 2015. 70 sites are directly listed on this page so that it doesn’t break, but you can access the full list in PDF form and spreadsheet form (also in PDF). Just click here.
  • The sites included accept contributions in over 55 categories. Yes, you can submit articles in at least 55 categories, so there’s no excuse as this list is pretty much all-inclusive. If you’ve ever dreamt of getting paid to write, this is one of the most extensive list of websites that pay writers ever published.
  • Most of the sites pay $50 or more per article; more than half of the sites are confirmed to pay $50 per article. At last count, 64 of the 110 sites are verified to pay at least $50 per article; in total, more than 64 sites pay above $50, but we could only verify 64 sites on the list in what way or the other. Some of the sites even pay up to $1,000 per article.
  • Most sites featured pay via Paypal or Check
  • These sites pay cash for articles. No revenue sharing site or anything of that sort included.
  • Some of the sites on this list pay upon acceptance of your article, while others require you to wait a few days or weeks to be paid.

With the above clarified, it is important to note that in total this full post is above 6,400 words and includes over 100 links; for optimization reasons as far as my site is concerned, this isn’t ideal, so I can only directly display 70 of the sites included in the full list below, but you can get the full list in the form of an easily accessible PDF and Excel file.

ACCESS THE FULL LIST: Get the full list of 110 websites that PAY you to write, in a cool PDF file as well as in compact spreadsheet form (also as a PDF), and I will also regularly send you new and updated sites even if this list hasn’t been updated. Click here to get access NOW!

      Indeed, it took at least 2 weeks to compile and write this; I’ll say this took nothing less than 50 man hours. The end result was worth it, though 🙂

    Bamidele, this is great. thanks so much for taking the time to produce it and share it with us….

  3. olukunle Abiola says:

    Bamidele, thank you for this great info. please as a Nigerian based in Nigeria, can I write for these websites? Then most of these sites pay with paypal & as a Nigerian you can only fund your paypal account but you can’t withdraw from your paypal account. Please how can a Nigerian overcome this payment challenge?

    • Yes, you can write for most of these websites irrespective of where you are from or reside.

      I’m not sure how a Nigerian can be paid for articles submitted to sites that only pay via Paypal; perhaps you can get someone abroad with a Paypal account to help?

    It will help freelancers for sure, one question is there from my end. You mentioned payment info confirmed, what exactly it is? did you confirm these websites are legitimate?

    • Thanks!

      “Payment info confirm on site” indicates whether there is any confirmation of payment on the featured site or not.
