Personal Money Store - Paying Freelance Market

Personal Money Store will buy 525 word articles on specific finance topics. Articles must be previously unpublished. Pay rate is around 5 cents per word (approx $25 per article).

They do insist that you research their preferred topics thoroughly and include their chosen keywords several times throughout your article.

Keep in mind that the type of comments already shown on Personal Money's blog post show you the level of writers they're not really looking for (you know the ones - the comments from people that say fun things like "plz tell me how to start I write good english plz tell me how to get payed" - and then these same people wonder why they're not getting paid. Go figure.)

These kinds of comments tell the editors who will be paying out good money for quality work exactly what kind of writer you really are before they even read your article. The submission instructions are clearly written on the page. Read them. Understand them. Write your article and then submit.

Here's the writer's guidelines page:

Good luck.

They say "Angels are found only in Heaven". I cannot accept it! I can see an Angel right over here... on earth :)

Bianca Raven said...

Awww shucks. I've gone all warm and fuzzy now. Thanks for the compliment :)

Sidzler said...

Raven, I submitted an article yesterday but still have no clue about what happened to it. Do they contact us or mail us? Just being desperate as usual...do you have any idea ?

parsibagan said...

Very strange! I did not get the email feedback though two comments have been posted here. I might not have ticked the `follow-up' box :(

Bianca Raven said...

I think you may not have ticked the box. I got confirmation that comments had been posted just fine, so the code is still working okay.

;)

Sidzler said...

No reply to my comments raven ?

parsibagan said...

@Sidzler: I guess you'll have to wait for a few days since they get lots of submissions. I'm sure they'll get back to you within a week. Check the other comments on their site and you will find many positive remarks. Hope this helps. :)

Sidzler said...

Thanks parsibagan !

Bianca Raven said...

Sorry for not responding sooner sidzler. I was going to say the same thing as parsibagan.

Any company that accepts freelance submissions gets swamped at times with emails from eager writers. Imagine going through hundreds of these yourself?

It takes time - so be patient. They'll get to you.

parsibagan said...

Bianca, could you please start a new thread exclusively for those `who know and yet do not know that they know'.

There are many budding content writers who do not have faith in their writing. They have a mental block which prevents them from seeing their true value.

Is there any way that they can gain confidence in their writing and break the shackles of hesitation?

Thanks a lot in advance and sorry for going off-topic.

:)

Bianca Raven said...

@parsibagan - good topic! I'll have a think about angle and get right onto it.

Sidzler said...

Bianca, I just have one thing to tell you...THANKS A LOT !!!!

Just after reading this article, I went and submitted an article. It got published today !!!!

http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/02/13/money-saving-tips-repay-personal-loan/

Take it as a testimonial or as a generous comment.... Out of all the blogs I have found over the internet, Bianca Raven's Blog is the most useful !!!!! God Bless ~ Thanks again !

parsibagan said...

Congratulations Sidzler. Here's wishing you all the best.

:)

Bianca Raven said...

Congratulations Sidzler! Well done :)

amanda said...

Forget it, guys! They don't pay you

parsibagan said...

@Amanda: Has your post been published? I ask this because `Sidzler' said that his post had been published but he did not specify if he was paid or not. Hope he reports back.

Bianca Raven said...

@Amanda - I"ve had quite a few accepted here. They paid no problems.

The only time they don't pay you is if they don't buy your articles!

Sidzler said...

I had a talk with the in-charge of the site and she told me that I will be paid within 13th of march. I will post here when I get paid.

parsibagan said...

Thanks for the feedback Sidzler. Since Bianca has confirmed receiving payment, I guess it is no issue. Anyway, please do keep us informed.

Amanda said...

@parsibagan Yes, I have been published a month ago.

Amanda said...

@Bianca-You sure? Have you been paid?

How many times? How often?

Amanda said...

@Sidzler: One month? I don't think so.

SiDhArTh said...

I got mine published on 13th of Feb. I asked for payments and they told that they will pay me within 1 month. Lets see what happens. I guess amanda should have been paid by now if its already one month. Lets hope for the best and I will surely let everyone know when I get paid. But wait till 12 more days !

parsibagan said...

I'll wait till I receive some positive feedback from you all. Seems Bianca is busy too :(

Amanda said...

@Sidzler I have not been paid after a month.

Sidzler said...

After more than 20 comments on the great controversy of whether this site pays or not, the answer is finally out !

YES IT PAYS !

I have been paid 22$ by them today, thanks raven !

Hard luck amanda, better luck next time !

BTW, they don't accept every article as they rejected my other article due to lack of smoothness from one paragraph to other. If they accept, they will pay!

parsibagan said...

Thanks so very much for the feedback. Now I'll write an article or two and submit them in the next few days. And congratulations man :)

Amanda said...

@Sidzler How many views per article?

@parsibagan I haven't been paid. My article was accepted one month ago. Maybe, they pay someone.

parsibagan said...

@Amanda: Did you contact them regarding the non-payment? I'll be writing an article for them soon. Could you please post the link of your article that has been published?

Bianca Raven said...

I received my payment today as well.

This is now the 30th comment on this topic and I hope we've established that PersonalMoneyStore DO pay for articles they accept and publish.

Sidzler said...

Another article of mine got published today. Click on my name above to see the article.

@amanda: Views were about 100, why dont you share your identity with us. Be brave and dont post unnecessarily that you have not been paid !

@raven Congrats and thanks again as my 2nd article got published there

@parsibagan Waiting to see your article there. All the best !

Goodgod said...

Hi, Guys

What kind of articles are accepted easily? Would you please share your experience here?

parsibagan said...

@Goodgod: They are all financially related articles. Just check out the site and you'll find exhaustive details. Here's wishing you all the best.

Ashely said...

Bianca Raven said...

Well done and congratulations. Please let us know how you get on with your payment from these guys. We'd all appreciate it. :)

nahesh said...

ok guys, I am hoping to write a few articles to personal money store, yet there is a problem, they say they pay via PayPal or Google Checkout, now I am in a country where PayPal does not offer payments services so I will be forced to use Google Checkout, so my question is have anyone of you guys received payment via Google Checkout and if so how do u get to withdraw the cash, thanks.
