iWriters get paid 81% of the price of each article. The rest is taken by Paypal transaction fees, as well as Copyscape quality checks to ensure the article is unique. This leaves a profit of $1.62 for a 300 word article, $2.43 for a 500 word article and $4.05 for 700 word article for the writer. These amounts vary based on the "type" of writer you are (i.e. Standard, Premium, or Elite). The amount displayed in this example is based on your current, personal, status. Elite writers can earn $15+ for an article. If you receive a "special request" from a requester you receive another 5% (i.e. 86%) earnings per article, which equates to $2.58 for a 500 word article.
