After I wrote a couple of hubs about writing on Helium, I got comments saying that Helium no longer accepts writers from outside the US. Yesterday one of the Helium staff contacted me about something else, so I asked him if that was true. Nope! Only writers from the Philippines and India are filtered - something about advertising. I was told that for Heliumites from countries that don't have Paypal, their account can be set up with a friend/relative/acquaintance in a country where Paypal is accepted.
Just wanted to clear this up for those wanting to write on Helium but thought they couldn't. I don't think you'll make as much from adclicks there, but their Marketplace is great for some quick cash!
I'm amazed by all the ways one can write for the internet. Thanks for the headsup Habee.

Is Writing in Helium Worth It?

I know Helium gets a bad rap sometimes, and I'll be first to say that I don't agree with all their policies. For payment for articles in Marketplace, however, they're hard to beat. I've already sold 3 articles there...
