Textbroker.co.uk is now open. They accept writers from everywhere but the US
This may be a stupid question, but are they connected to the same textbroker.com that accepts/has writers from the US (or something completely separate)?
Haha!! This is a first? Am I reading wrong.. I guess Lisa may be right and that's the reason they don't accept writers from the U.S.
I went through the whole application thing ages ago, and I get their e.mails about what assignments they have, pushes they're doing for certain things at different times, etc. If I recall correctly the thing was that they didn't accept people from all countries, although I thought it was the US and Canada they handled.
For anyone who doesn't know them, you start out with low-pay, basic, articles; and if they're decent enough you can work up to getter paying articles (but "better paying" isn't all that great, by any means).
We shall see. They started me off at level 4 which pays about 1.5 cents a word. If I can ever find orders...they won't load on my browser.
And, yes, they are from Textbroker.com. I got a generic email from Textbroker.com telling me I had to submit a W9. As far as I know, you just need a paypal or banking account number for Textbroker UK.
it says on the UK site that it's not open to orders until 12th December
No, it definitely isn't good pay. Since the site has been flooded with more writers (who don't realize that the pay is way below industry standard) it's a lot more difficult to get Direct Order clients who will pay higher rates set by the writer. I wrote a few Hubs about TB.com a while ago, but honestly I don't bother with them anymore.
As the UK version is newer and not yet over-saturated with writers, it could prove to be an OK source of side income. Good luck to all the UK writers applying.
