    Can someone under 18 make money on HubPages?

    Let's say i'm "hypothetically" a 16 year old going into his junior year of highschool next year. I like writing and I hear hubpages is a great website to make some money. Is it possible for someone under the age of 18 to make some money through HubPages? Any information would be great thanks!

    No,  a person must be 18 to join and earn money from the site. It has to do with the advertising contracts with Adsense, Ebay and Amazon.

      Yep. I just read that you have to be 18 to even join Hub Pages.

    You need a Google Adsense account for one thing, and they limit accounts to 18 and over unless parents fill out application using their google account.

    To sign up for Google Adsense (how you make money on hubpages) you must be 18. If you are "hypothetically" not 18, I would suggest not signing up and lying about your age, as it is a legal contract that involves money. On the web in general, people under 18 can use Adsense by getting an adult (for example, their parents) to sign up and using theirs.

    HubPages also requires you to be 18 to sign up. I'm not sure if people under 18 are allowed to sign up under the name of an adult with that adult's permission or not...
