List update

Added About.com For a Contributing Writer, it's a minimum of $500 a month for the first two years at About.com,with payment incentives based on pageview growth and after that the minimum drops to $250. You are required to publish at least 12 pieces of content per month, which works out to around $42 per article when you are starting out.

Removed Factoidz. There have been a number of complaints regarding it by former members, alleging that it's a reverse Ponzi scheme, where the earnings of older members are used to pay newer members. I have yet to ascertain how much truth there is to this, but until I find the time to really go digging into this, I'll remove it for the time being.

Changed Helium's description, since they changed their upfront payment structure. There have been complaints about this, and while I do personally know a number of Helium members who will expect to be earning less after this change, I think it was inevitable. It just didn't make sense that under the old payout structure, one was given more financial incentive to suggest and write topics about obscure subjects than to write about subjects that people might actually be interested in, given how Helium generates their revenue.

Sites paying upfront for articles

Constant Content
A site where writers can showcase their articles with a preset price tag and have interested publishers buy them. Has strict standards for submissions (free of grammar mistakes etc) so check to make sure that you are submitting a flawless article. If you have articles that you have published elsewhere before, you can still sell them for usage rights here.
Content Gather
Content Gather is fairly new, and has only been around since Nov 2016. Their parent company has been around for quite a while though. Content Gather (as of now) does look a lot like Constant Content to me. Like Constant Content,there's a marketplace where writers can submit articles to sell, and a custom job where buyers specify articles. Unlike Constant Content though, there's also an upfront payment when your article gets approved for the marketplace.
