Top 26 Accounts with Online Writing Jobs that Pay Well

Owning an online writing account is a pretty big deal today since you can work on jobs and make money from anywhere. Online writing jobs have thus become a source of income for many, especially those who fail to secure jobs.

To cater to the ever-growing number of students who prefer to give out their assignments at a small fee, numerous online writing platforms have been launched over the years.

Some of these portals have served writers and students well and stood the test of time, while others have failed to offer the best experience for either of the two.

10. AsiaWriters

AsiaWriters Review

AsiaWriters is a sister company to EssayWriters, which you can notice by the obvious resemblance in their website design and content.

Arguably, as its name suggests, it might be an online writing platform that caters to the Asian market of students, or it offers writing opportunities to talented writers in India, China, Pakistan, and throughout Asia, as the website notes.

AsiaWriters has a small pool of professional writers supplied with a reliable number of jobs all year long for free-market bidding.

However, AsiaWriters has some cringe-worthy reviews with SIteJabber, with writers claiming they are fined unreasonably and some accounts terminated.

Nonetheless, some writers have made a good living out of this platform. It’s worth a try.

How much do Asia Writers pay? The company pays up to $30 per page for highly experienced pro writers.

When are writers paid? AsiaWriters has a complicated payment strategy. Orders completed between 1st and 15th the previous month are paid on 1st and 3rd of the next month while those processed between 16th and 31st the previous month are paid on between 15th and 18th the next month.

11. EssayPro

Essaypro Review

For more than 20 years, EssayPro has been helping students with their education tasks by entrusting them to professional writers. It is thus logical to put EssayPro among the leaders of the online writing industry.

It has completed more than 1.1 million orders over the years while maintaining a small pool of professional writers, always below 500, which suggests three things.

First, jobs are in good supply. Secondly, it’s hard to acquire an account with EssayPro. Lastly, if you mess up, you lose your account.

How much does EssayPro pay its writers? EssayPro charges its clients a minimum of $11 per page which, if we factor what the company takes, which is normally around 50%, the writer’s earnings start from at least $6 per page. Note also clients determine the percentage they are willing to pay depending on the quality of work you produce.

When does EssayPro pay its writers? A writer has the right to withdraw processed funds from the account at any time they want,

What are the payment methods available with EssayPro? PayPal, Skrill, Payoneer, ePayments, VISA, and MasterCard.

How do you register with EssayPro?

  • Sign up at the Become a Writer page
  • Take tests to prove; good knowledge in citation and format styles, and writing experience
  • Prove your identity and upload your Bachelors’ Masters’ or Ph.D. degree in the specified field

EssayPro only accepts ENL (English as a Native Language) writers, so it’s pretty hard to get in if you don’t come from an English-speaking country.

12. Writers Labs

Writers Labs Review
Writers Labs

Writers Labs is an outstanding online writing platform known to have a good supply of jobs all year round and offer some of the industry’s best pay rates.

Their uniquely designed website paints a picture of the perfect writing environment for freelancers. It accepts both ENL and ESL writers,s although the former earns almost double the latter.

It offers jobs in almost every field thinkable while technical jobs such as engineering projects pay much better.

How much does Writers Labs pay its writers? Clients are charged a minimum of $6 per page for a high school paper with a 2-week deadline to $15 per page for a Ph.D. paper required in less than 24 hours. This translates to about $3-8$ per page for the writers.

Studypool Review

Studypool is a micro-tutoring platform that brings the whole idea of calling your smart friend for held with a troubling question.

This revolutionary platform allows clients to break down their work into small sections, which they can then upload and connect with thousands of verified tutors online for assistance, after which they pay for work done.

Studypool is one of the largest online writing services in the market, with more than 50,000 writers, a favorite for freelancers. It also receives thousands of jobs weekly, even during low seasons, making it a reliable source of income.

However, the cost per page for Studypool jobs might be menial, especially for newbies, and sometimes you might have to do a job without pay. Tutors who do technical jobs such as coding and engineering earn substantially more than the rest.

How much does Studypool pay? Tutors earn from as little as $1 per page to over $30 per page. The more experienced and highly approved you are by your clients, the higher you earn.

15. Proficient Writers

Proficient Writers Review
Proficient Writers

Proficient Writers is a freelance writing community where clients are promised the highest quality of work from its writers, carefully scrutinized to ensure only the best writers can get accounts.

The platform maintains a relatively small number of writers, about 800, who can cover the number of jobs available. Also, orders are generally in constant supply throughout the year, with the average pay per order settling at over $200, enough revenue to sustain most freelance writers for weeks.

Proficient Writers value repeat customers and demand quality from their writers and often penalize those who fail to deliver quality work in good time.

Notably, writers are required to submit 3 unpaid jobs before they are allowed to earn. Several reviews at Glassdoor also reveal the hardship writers, especially newbies, get before securing jobs.

Livingston Research Review
Livingston Research

This is another major online writing company with over 100 employees, 5000 writers, and more than 460,000 jobs already completed over the past 10 years of operation.

The company has the most reviews on Glassdoor, which suggests it has worked with many writers and dominated the essay mills industry.

It has an average cost per paper and a reliable supply of jobs even during low seasons. As with many other writing accounts, the client is the company’s biggest asset which is why most negative complaints point to the heavy penalties it gives to writers in case of any issues.

Nonetheless, it receives thousands of writing applications monthly, and only 1%-2% are recruited; their recruiting funnel is tough, especially for inexperienced and ESL writers.

How much does Livingston Research pay it, writers? Writers are paid between $3.5 and $10 on a competitive bidding system.

WriteDom is a freelance writing portal requiring its writers to have good research skills and an analytical mind instead of years of experience to work for them.

The platform offers plenty of assignments for copywriting, proofreading, content writing, academic writing, and technical subjects such as engineering and programming.

How much does WriteDom pay its writers? The payments seem to be average for experienced writers and below average for new or inexperienced writers. ENL writers are paid more than ESL writers, and technical jobs such as programming projects pay very well.

19. Writers Hub

WritersHub Review

Writers Hub is a favorite academic writing account for many freelance writers. This is mainly contributed by the ease of creating an account like Studypool and the never-ending supply of jobs available for bidding on a free-market basis.

The platform has a huge pool of writers, yet this number never grows despite new applicants being accepted every month. Brief research into Writers Hub reviews revealed some startling information.

First, the company seems to be taking a huge commission cut from the writers’ pay. One client claimed in Trustpilot that he paid $220 for a job only to find out that the writer was paid $12. Secondly, the company heavily penalizes writers for mistakes and has difficulty dealing with the support team.

Lastly, accounts are terminated daily. Having worked with Writers Hub, I can attest to some truth to these claims. The customer care team is especially rude, unreasonable and it subjects heavy unwarranted fines to the writers.

The supply of jobs is excellent, and the best writers make a good living from the platform.

How much do writers get paid? Writers earn from $1 to $15

How often are writers paid? Writers are paid every 14 days on set payroll dates that are accessible within accounts. Only funds that have been fully processed are paid.

26. Quality Writers

quality writers account is an academic essay mill that prides itself as a professional writing service that facilitates writers to advance their skills through experience. The bid or take platform is constantly searching for talented and passionate writers to meet the high demand of writing projects it gets.

Nonetheless, there is little information about the Quality Writers foundation and the people behind it. The website does not indicate any physical address or country of origin. In fact, hunting for information to prove its credibility is burdensome.

That explains why it has racked several bad reviews on company review sites such as Glassdoor and Site Jabber. Writers complain of very frequent and hefty fines. Accounts get shut down daily, and writers make a fraction of what projects pay.

How do Quality Writers Pay? Quality Writers pay based on level of assignment. It starts at $7 per page for a high school assignment to $15 per page for a Ph.D. paper. However, according to online reviews, most writers don’t make close to what they are promised due to charges and frequent unnecessary fines.

When do Quality Writers pay? Writers are paid twice a month on the 1st and 15th.

What are Quality Writers’ payment methods? It pays through Payoneer Card with a minimum withdrawal limit of $20 or Payoneer Global Transfer with a minimum withdrawal limit of $150.

How to apply for Quality Writers Account?

  • Visit the registration page
  • Complete the registration form and Create Account
  • Upload your national ID and Diploma confirming your academic degree
  • Take grammar test (25 questions) and write a short essay (min 350 words) on a given topic
  • Wait for your application to be reviewed for 7 business days.
  • If they confirm your successful registration you can start writing

Quality is an easy account to open and constantly recruits new writers who can demonstrate great writing skills.  While this is a good thing for new writers, it’s bad for existing writers since they are easily replaced after being fined for mistakes such as a missing full stop.


I haven’t mentioned hundreds of other online writing accounts here, but these are some of the most recognizable in the freelancing world. One thing to note is that for these sites, the clients are always right.

As the writer, you’ll always be blamed and sometimes punished for mistakes you haven’t made. That’s something you’ll have to come to peace with even though you strive to offer the best quality of work for your clients.


  1. Hi El, am a new person in writing. I needed an account to work with since most of the employers i have worked under are somehow ruthless to me when it comes to payments. Which best account should i start with as a beginner (with no big capital)?

    • Hey John….just try creating an account on every website on this list. Whichever will accept you, give it all your time and energy. I can’t gauge the easiest one to open because I haven’t tried opening account in all of them.

  2. Hi, I am curious about Essay Pro’s deposit of $600 required when applying for the account. Could please someone explain to me how this works? Does one deposit after or before successfully completing tests and if one does not pass, what happens to this money?

    • Hey Morgan, I haven’t heard of an account which charges you such a hefty fee to apply for an account. Kindly read the terms and conditions of Essay Pro to see if they’ll refund you the cash. But I’m almost certain of that fee does exist, it will be non-refundable. Probably they only want serious writers to apply for accounts there, that’s why they have put a major block for new applicants.

  3. Hi sir I managed to open the Livingston stone research account but they don’t have work they said I will only have access to the platform when they is enough work flow is livingstone a reliable account to own?

    • Livingstone is a good account. But like every other account, it takes the low season hit badly. Only highly rated and experienced writers get jobs during these periods. Try applying in other platforms while you keep you Livingstone account. When the jobs volume grows you’ll get jobs.

  4. Hi El Gwaro,
    Preciate your insights. I recently applied at (Kenya writers)and I’ve noticed their persistence on an upfront ksh1000 fee that they ask for as a requirement. Do you by any chance know of this platform? Regards.

    • Hey Warui, honestly I don’t think paying that Ksh 1000 will be of benefit to you. I had a friend who paid that amount, then she was given two tests which were reviewed and she was asked to correct some mistakes…and that’s all…they call it training. It doesn’t mean you’ll start getting jobs regularly. My friend never heard from them again so it was just a waste of time.

  5. I successfully opened an account with Upwork but its been 6 month of biding and no success. Any help on how to create a winning profile and proposal would be highly appreciated

  6. Hello,
    Quite detailed information. I have been handling applications for some time. There are issues one needs to know. For example, some of the accounts like Unemployed Professors prefer native speakers and will blacklist one using the IP. Others pick cookies and approve accounts based on novice trials. The documents used and cases of multiple applications may also determine whether or not one gets approved.

        • Hey Raphael. Nowadays I think wondering which is the easiest account to open is the wrong mentality to have. I used to think Uvocorp is hard to open until my small and less experienced brother opened an account. I would advice you to just try any account and see whether you’ll be lucky. They use standard tests to filter writers. If you’ve been doing this for a while, your chances of succeeding are good.

    • Hey Charles,
      Thank you for your advise on account opening. I meant to know what are some of the academic writing companies I can easily open an account with as an ESL writer?
      Kindly advise on those with;
      1. Reliable work flow
      2. Timely payments
      3. Less fines
      Thank you again,

    • Hi Charles, I have read your insights about account opening on El Gwaro’s post ‘Top 26 Accounts with Online Writing Jobs that Pay Well.’ I was wondering whether it is possible to contact with you for more guidance on account opening?

  7. hello, my name is john and i have been trying to open an academic writing account but never successful. Currently looking for any connection to writing and any link to successfully opening any of those accounts youve recommended. Which advice would you give me regarding opening an account.

    • Hey John I think the best place to meet guys who successfully open writing accounts is Facebook and telegram groups. Identify the most active guys in these groups and connect with them so that they can guide you through. Check some of those groups HERE

  8. Hello El Gwaro.
    I’m Ian Dazlah. I’ve been trying to register to most of these online writing sites with no vain. Kindly some one connect me to a client that i can work with.
    kindly contact me on my email iankamuiru(@)

  9. Thank you for an informative article, Onsomu.
    Is there a way to contact you regarding some more personal manners? I believe I will require your assistance.


  10. Hello Onsomu!

    Thank you for an insightful article. Is there any way for me to contact you regarding writing jobs? I believe we might have a productive cooperation together.

    Thank you in advance.

  11. Wow, what a great education!
    My name is Fredrick and am interested in starting online writing, any guide will be highly appreciated.

  12. Thank you for the vast knowledge…..
    I need to know how to navigate through the tests and the certificate part.
    please connect me with an expert for a deal

  13. This content was educative and should be rewarded. I appreciated your effort to provide information on online hustle through academic writing. Do you have any insight on Course Hero freelance academic online writing site? Any advise on its credibility and lucrativeness. Thank you El Gwaro.

    • I haven’t used it before but I know is as a reputable platform where students and teachers can connect and use the millions of study resources to learn. You can check it reviews of TrustPilot and G2 to find out its credibility.

  14. Hey El Gwaro,
    I have been writing for someone’s account for 5 years now so I’m quite experienced. I now want to get my own account in order to work on my own terms. However, I do not have a diploma or degree. I know you have listed sites that don’t require such documents (albeit, understandably, very few), but what advise would you give me personally?

    • You can buy an account or pay an expert to teach you how to successfully open writing accounts. Join Academia Writing group in Facebook, that’s where most online writers congregate. People sell accounts, others sell knowledge. If you can get a good account to start off and hold you while learning how to successfully open accounts, you’ll have killed two birds with the same stone. Try and do a background check of account sellers and find those that are reputable, buy an account and request them to teach you how to open accounts. Once you have the knowledge especially how to circumvent the degree requirements and pass the writing tests, you’ll be good for life. You’ll open accounts whenever you feel like. All the best.

  15. Hi there Mr. Gwaro,
    I find your page most informative. Many thanks, I hope to start writing to complement my income. I tried opening an account with freelancers and Upwork as early as five years ago with no approval. Now I realize from the comments section that it is no walk in the park. Looking forward to having my own account with one of your best-recommended sites.

    Kind Rgds,
    Tim Njuguna.

  16. Nice. Thanks for the help. Though it would be a great help if you also displayed what kind of accounts they are- Bidding or Take accounts. Can you assist on this?

    • Hey Abraham, most of these accounts offer both bid and take services. I have tried to indicate this feature if you read through the article. For surety of whether an account is a bid or take account, please visit the FAQ section of the website.

    • Hay Mnyama, I’ve never heard of Freelantion so I don’t have any idea of how things are handled on that platform. Unless we have a reader here with a better point of view.

    • Hey Murih, i currently don’t have information on anyone selling unemployed professors accounts so id suggest you try your luck by registering an account with the platform.


  18. Hello, Onsomu. Tell me about writedom. I applied with them about 4 weeks ago and submitted all documents but no replies even when I try to chat with the support. I also sent an email and no replies still.

    • Hey Savy, One thing you need to note is that most of these websites are not kind to new applicants. They usually require you to apply and wait for a reply from them which can come even after one month and only if your application was worthy enough. They have a very tough recruitment system which admits the best and favors native English speaking people. If you don’t get a response from them, even after 4 weeks, you need to move on and apply in another platform. All the best though.

  19. hello ,someone please help me open up my own account .For five years i have been trying with no fruits despite little i earn from account owners .

  20. thank you for the information.
    the most usless accounts you should not try
    1. proficient-you never pass the grammar test
    2. livingstone-disregards applications from african. If you want an account with them use a fake profile from US or Uk

  21. This was really extensive and objective, thank you for compiling the list
    To anyone looking to join the industry, Writershub is an awful awful site with low payments that do not even begin to cover the stress that comes with working on that site.

    • Thank you C for stopping by….WritersHub must be doing something terribly wrong, so many complaints floating around. freelance writers should be aware of what they are getting into when registering for an account with WritersHub

        • Hey Benedict, If you wanna create an online writing account, you’ve gotta do it trial and error. Since you have 5 years of experience, you have the basic writing skills to perform well in the entry test. So just check out any of these sites and identify those with open recruitment and try your lack. Alternatively, you should identify an account seller from academic writing groups and seek advice on how to successfully open accounts. They might ask for a small payments so be ready. All the best.

          • Hello El Gwaro. Thank you for compiling this list for us, it’s so insightful. Do you know someone I can contact directly to assist in opening an account please? I have tried opening several accounts, but the test is always a problem. I need some guidance on the same. Thank you

          • Hey Wincate, Opening an account today is a good combination of luck and experience. Luck because sometimes these accounts allow Africans to apply and accept that seem promising based on how they perform. Experience because the people who know how to open accounts have been in the industry for a while and they understand what is needed to pass the test among other things like hiding you location using vpn. Your best bet is to identify an account owner in one of the many Academic writing Facebook Groups and request them to teach you how to open an account. They might charge you a bit but it will be worth it if you successfully open an account.
