Default Article Writing

I've written 17 articles on iWriter, all approved with average rating of 4.65 out of 5. Now the problem is that I'm from Pakistan, a country which is not supported by PayPal due to some absurd reasons. How can I write articles with a decent payout, and get paid through a different payment method like Moneybookers or something? Some help would be greatly appreciated.

Always tricky.

Are you asking how you can be paid by iWriter without using PayPal? (I think you'd be better asking iWriter than asking Warriors? They'll perhaps have a way, or create one? They wouldn't want to limit their market entirely to PayPal?).

Or are you asking where else you can write articles and be paid in non-PayPal ways?

Where else can I write articles and get paid in non-PayPal ways. I already contacted iWriter about the first thing, they say they're going to add AlertPay at the end of the year.

Hi Alexa,
I too would love to know how/where to make some money writting articles for sites. I am extremely new to Internet Marketing, but I am a fast learner and I am a native English speaker (UK)...
Your help is appreciated.

Why don't you try creating an Odesk and/or Elance accounts? With Odesk, they have an option to withdraw your money via bankwire or directly to your debit card.

Congratulations on getting those 17 articles approved but shouldn't you have thought about how you were going to get paid before doing the job?

If you are interested, there is a site called Greenlightarticles.com; they operate in a similar manner to iwriter but they offer Alertpay as a payment option. So you can check that out.

I co-founded WebAble, where I help webify people's businesses through design, storytelling, content marketing and social media.

Well I tried both. Although Elance has comparatively better earning per article, it is incredibly hard to land an article writing job there, maybe because the employers prefer native English speakers. oDesk, on the other hand, is a website where people want to get their job done almost for free. I landed a job there, only to learn that the employer was paying $5 for 5000 words.

You could bid on jobs at freelancer.com as moneybookers is used there. Just be prepared to be shocked by the extreme low rates many buyers offer!

I got a PayPal account from a friend, which he verified through some trick, though I knew I couldn't withdraw money, I intended to use it for buying some SEO tools/services. The account got limited soon and couldn't be recovered.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm checking out Greenlightarticles.com now, although Alertpay charges $15 for bank wire which is painful.

Yes, I have tried them, and honestly, they are not worth the effort.

There is a saying, where there is a will there is a way. There are people who offer joint ventures to people in your shoes. You bring cash, they bring their Paypal account. You pay into their account and they get a percentage of whatever comes in. I could give you a link to them (they are members on other forums), if you think it will help you. Post here if you are interested and I will send you a PM with the link.

For a better payout you can work as a per hour basis writer in networks like odesk or freelancer and as far the paypal concern its been a problem for people of Pakistan or Bangladesh and for some other countries too.However I am not sure but check this site 2co whether it has any option to help.Moreover if you have any relative or friend resides where paypal is supported they also can help to open an account.

You could also create a profile at
OutsourceFactor | Helping Online Entrepreneurs Hire Offshore Talent

Then look for a single employer who will pay you using Xoom.com or some other non-PayPal method.

If your writing is good and you are a well rounded person you will have no trouble getting a decent online job.
