Iwriter is a site where people can make money writing articles online. You may have heard of this site or you may not have heard of this site. If you are wondering if Iwriter is a good site to write and make money online with, then you need to read this first.

There are 3 negative things that can be said about Iwriter. These things can certainly make it not worth your time to write articles for the site.

Iwriter Negative One

The first negative thing about Iwriter is that clients on the site can reject writers’ articles for no apparent reason at all. A writer will not even get the chance to rewrite the article if it rejected by a client on Iwriter. This can be very annoying, especially if a writer had to write 500 words or more, and had to do quite a bit of research. There really is nothing a writer can do when their article gets rejected. If writer’s got the chance to revised the article, then maybe more writers would enjoy writing content there. However, when an article is rejected on the site, the client can leave a comment and state the reason why the article was rejected. The writer can also leave a comment back to the client.

Iwriter Negative Two

The second negative thing about Iwriter is that the pay is relatively low for writers who are just starting out. Writers who are just starting out can choose standard articles to write. As of now a 500 word article pays around $2.43. Once a writer moves up to the next level they will have the chance to earn a bit more money than that.

Iwriter Negative Three

The third negative thing about Iwriter relates to the star rating. A writer starts off as a 1 star writer and then can work their way up to a 2 star writer and then a 3 star writer. A person needs to receive a certain amount of ratings from clients. Every time a client accepts or rejects an article, they can rate the writer from 1-5 stars. This may seem good but some people may look at this as a negative because when a client gives a writer a low rating it can drastically impact a writer’s score in a negative way.

Positive Things About Iwriter

Although there are a few negative things about writing for Iwriter, there are definitely some positive things about writing for the site.

Iwriter Positive One

There are always articles to be written on Iwriter and this is a good thing. There are some writing sites that have little or no articles to write. It seems that this is not ever the case with Iwriter. Writers will almost always find articles to write on Iwriter.

Iwriter Positive Two

Iwriter clients usually approve or reject articles very quickly. This is good because writers do not have to wait to long to know whether or not articles that they have written are approved.

Iwriter Positive Three

Iwriter pays writers once a week. This means that writers have the opportunity to get a weekly payout from the site.


Writers who want to earn a weekly income and have quite a bit of articles to choose from should give Iwriter a go.

      I use Iwriter to fill in the gap during slow times at The Content Authority. I guess another nice thing about them is you do not have to fill out a lengthy application. I already left Textbroker because of the lack of Level 3 assignments . I tried Wordgigs but deactivated my account because an email was sent that basically said they would be 'keeping an eye on writers' not only for quality but how long it takes you to complete articles.I had just been with them a few weeks. I may as well be back in high school. Sigh

      Thank you for the comment. I really don't like the fact that there are a lot of requester with high rejection rates too. I try my best to not write any articles for sequesters with a high rejection rate.

      I like the site but I don't think its the best site to write for, and you are right, some improvements could be made to the site.

      Negative #4: No way to directly contact regarding rejections or anything. I think the contact button must be for clients.

      I am a bit frustrated with them lately. I see more requesters with high rejection rates. I did a 150-word rewrite today and it came back rejected saying it wasn't on topic. I think the requester changed the topic. That is not the topic I accepted. I did a screen save of the current article I wrote case they pull the same thing. I am tired of getting articles rejected for no reason like "I don't like it". Thankfully it does not happen often and I may have a direct order client to work with.

      Negative#5: They will not let you leave negative reviews on requesters anymore.

      The site could stand some improvement. I hope if they owner is reading this they consider making changes. The only reason I stay is because i am premium writer.
