iWriters get paid 81% of the price of each article. These amounts vary based on your writer "level" (i.e. Standard, Premium, Elite or Elite Plus) and the length of the article. The different writer levels are determined by the quality of the written content. For example, a writer may earn $2.67 for a 500 word article as a "Standard" writer but $31.59 for a 500 word article as an "Elite Plus" writer. If you receive a "special request" from a requester you receive an additional 5% (i.e. 86%) earnings per article.
