Thank you for your input.


  1. Hi,
    I was surprised to see that AC offers assignments that pay up to $100 up front. As a Featured Contributor, I haven't run into those assignments yet. Has anyone else??

  2. When I came across the $5-100 statement (directly from Associated Content pay guidelines) I was also surprised. I have not written much there to date, and most of the assignments I have seen have been in the $5-20 range, a few a bit higher.
