Payment for Your Work
We pay a flat rate for each article. The compensation amount is adjusted to the meatiness of the article. Long, in-depth articles that require deep research are compensated more than shorter, snappier articles.
The amount of compensation will vary from article to article and depends on many factors including how audacious the scope of the work is, the level of time and research involved to produce the article, as well as other factors like audience reach and industry expertise of the author.
We only pay for articles that are published!
