If you have questions for the writer, you will send them directly through the online editing tools. You’ll have 24 hours to edit each article, and will receive twice weekly payments for each reviewed piece. We pay $3.50 for every 300-500 word article reviewed, with most editors earning an average of $20 to $25 per hour.
