any writers who use writerbay? how comes they give their cases to specific people and not others just because they chat one on one. Is it not unfair to be biased considering all their writers are qualified? Some should explain the criteria they use and whether it is personal not professional.

mymo, if you're complaining because you aren't getting orders, it might not be an issue of politics but rather one of qualifications. That is, your English makes me suspect that there is a professional (not a personal) reason that you don't get a lot of work.

one of qualifications

Qualifications are not cast in stone, that is, they vary from organization to organization. You never know, may be she is the most or among the most qualified in the organization.

Information about Writerbay

Hi guys,
Need information about writerbay. There is a little information about writerbay, but, need to know from the experts.

If you're a writer, it sounds like you'll fit in just fine. If you're a customer, I'd steer clear.

Did a quick online chat...Katie/Nadine (both names were given) says they're a UK company, but didn't know what a Company House id # was....chat ended when I asked a second time.

they give orders,apart from delaying salaries,but they seem to be a credible site,i have been writing for them

You heard it here first, folks. To hire amazing writing talent like kiteboy, who doesn't really appear to know what a comma is or how it should be used, head over to writerbay. Couldn't have written a better advertisement for pretty much any other company myself.

Pheelyks, you are such a racist! Also, why are you "throwing dirt"?

That makes sense, doesn't it?

Pheelyks is not throwing dirt. There's nothing wrong with what he posted. Kiteboy clearly shouldn't be in this industry. LOL!!! You're that desperate huh? Trying to associate yourself with people who don't resort to empty, stupid scare tactics so that you can salvage what's left of your annihilated credibility. Sheesh... when are you going to get a clue? There's nothing to salvage. ^_________^

LMAO! Really? What is the different between his calling a spade a spade and mine? I'll tell you the difference: you don't want another enemy.

What is the different between his calling a spade a spade and mine?

The "different" is that pheelyks focuses on writing ability. He doesn't scare writers or call them criminals just because they write for some companies. I don't mind him telling people which sites are foreign and which aren't either, or even which sites are better than others. It's as much his right to do so as it is mine.

As for making another enemy, if pheelyks ever agrees with your "no sale, no crime" position on false advertisements, I will call him stupid because that's precisely what he'll show himself to be. Until that time, I got nothing against him.

As do I . . . .

I don't mind him telling people which sites are foreign and which aren't either,

That's exactly what I have done for years.

He doesn't scare writers or call them criminals just because they write for some companies.

That's NOT what I claim either, ya lying, spinning wench. Please quote a post in which I state the following:

"Writers are criminals just because they write for certain companies."

Good luck with that, liar.

If you are so confident that pheelyks will disagree with my statements regarding the accessory/accomplice/co-conspirator status of writers (or anyone else-in any industry-who knowingly pockets dirty money), why don't you directly ask him?


Oct 22, 2010 | #14
He doesn't scare writers or call them criminals just because they write for some companies and don't stop writing for such companies even if they know that such companies are allegedly engaging in false advertising.

pheelyks: sometimes,employing crude tactics and behaving like a philistine god serves no purpose,thus,attacking or questioning writer bay or criticizing my capability wont make you a hero,further more your racist approach is academically outdated,and pathetically misplaced.

ummmmm......what?
your racist approach

racist? I never mentioned race...I don't even know what "race" you are, and I really don't care. Regardless of your race, your English sucks (well, it's actually decent for a foreign speaker, but it is quite obviously not your native tongue and you have some serious work to do before it is up to academic standards). But if playing the race card is the only way you can handle criticism, by all means, go ahead.

Customers: hire kiteboy. Then when you complain that you can't really understand what he writes, or have other suggestions about mechanics and usage, you can be called a racist instead of receiving your money back! Doesn't that sound like fun?

I know a lot of these emails are spam, but the one I got is definitely real. They'll be transferring the $2.5 billion some warlord left me any day now....

Writer Bay is a low-paying company run by some foreign outfit.

Writerbay Fraudulently Withholds Writers Payments for more than Two Weeks

Writerbay pays its writers once per month during the 16-21 st payment period. I have information that the company failed to transfer writers payments on time during the last month. Apparently, writers using Moneybookers are the ones affected.

I have checked the website, but cannot see any address!! Writers and clients suing Writerbay could be in for trouble!!


Jan 11, 2013 | #26
I have been working for Writerbay for a while and on 20, Dec had troubles with getting my money through Moneybookers too. But they politely asked me if I could receive my money via PayPal. Anyway their issue with Moneybookers has been solved for today and I've been paid with a little delay but still via Moneybookers.
Try to reach their support and they will come up with decision for you to get your money.

*Bump

This site requests a lot of personal data from their writer, and fail to provide the most basic encryption to secure it. How do people even complete the sign up process like this?

I picked up Writerbay as an account about a month ago. The pay is horrific. $5-$6.50 per page. For rush orders, it is $7.60+, but those are few and far between. That sucks, but it isn't the main problem. The main problem with Writerbay is that most of the assignments are 1-2 pages, and often you will need to do a page or two extra to complete an assignment.

To be honest, I have had nothing but bad experiences with this company in the last month. Aside from **** pay, there has been a few instances where they changed up what was asked of me post-hoc. For example, I completed a business analysis paper for a client, and the client came back saying they wanted a whole slew of financial data jammed into the paper as well, and that this wouldn't affect page count because it belonged in the appendix. I told them that it was bull****, but they just said "if you cannot revise we will give order to another writer" (their grammar, not mine), and to maintain a good relationship and to get pay for work performed on the order, I just went ahead and did it. Kinda sucked because I did 3 hours of work for $20.

I've taken a few "revision" orders where I revised work of others. I gotta say, I have no clue how these people pass the grammar or style tests. This order I took the other day had no headings, a boatload of bullets and the grammar was Kenyan as ****. I revised it for the client (re-wrote the entire paper) and now the client is jamming it up because their customer service has trained clients to ask for revisions and not even specify what needs to be revised.

In short, Writerbay is ESL trash, the agents are ****** to writers, the pay is horrific and they don't keep their word. It is a good account to have for slow periods because they always have work (because they're probably cheap as hell), but as a writer you should alway value your time.

What do you make of the leading writer income stats page? They also have the upgraded writer accounts for dedicated writers. It seems like if someone really wanted to give themselves over to the company they might be able to squeak out an okay income, provided they can write efficiently.

The leading writer income stats thing suggests to me that a few people might burn themselves out or may be multiple people on one account. Below is the current top 10.

11125 Writer $4504
253537933 Writer $3559
16463 Writer $2874
262198408 Writer $2856
251988118 PRO writer $2711
259292733 Writer $2611
110686 Writer $2484
21104 Writer $2424
4969 Writer $2188
3158 Writer $2150

Notice the drop off from one to two? notice the dropoff from two to three? three to ten? That's incredible.

Let's consider the base pay. Base pay on orders varies from $5 to like $9 on the rare ultra-rush grad order.

Bonuses, from what I can see vary from 10% to about 35%. Let's say someone has a weighted average pay per page of $7.00 (very generous). They would be pulling in $9.45 after bonus. The highest paid person would have to write 477 pages in 30 days. That would mean almost 16 pages a day.

So in the most profitable scenario conjured up, they would still need to write 16 pages a day. Granted, a 16 page day isn't that big a deal, I was doing 20 pages no problem at one point, but at writerbay they take 1-2 page orders like crazy. So you have to set up, get into the topic, then wrap up like 10 times in a 16 page day. Then you're doing 1 page in TNR, you will have spill-over on each paper, so it becomes 20 pages TNR, then you have revisions where clients add **** post-hoc and these people are all Indian so they don't understand you, they call you on the phone at all hours, it's just a pain.

I think they are doing some things to make it work better as a business, but the design is pedantic because, tbh, I am a good, fast, dependable writer and I like to make a decent wage per page. They just don't value good or dependable, they just want fast. Everyone in the industry wants to be a cost leader, everyone ditches quality. What sucks is that means you gotta do more dissertation, thesis and capstone work and those can be a real headache. The good thing is that Kenyans, EEs and Asians can't do that stuff worth a darn.

that's a pretty solid quantitative analysis of that board. i often wondered whether or not groups were the one's getting those top slots. 20 pages per day for 30 days straight would be a serious feat, and that wasn't even writing season! they did that in august. who writes that many pages per day in August??

a few people might burn themselves out

That's always a danger in any career field, especially those involving self-discipline. There are several recommendations in this forum to help avoid this outcome, including those set forth in one of my previous posts from 2012: https://essayscam.org/forum/wc/academic-writer-done-3855/#msg61542.

Please help support Fisher House (fisherhouse org) which provides a network of comfort homes for veterans' family members. Thanks!

Agreed, PV. Self-management skills are absolutely essential in this field. We perform several projects of varying size every day. In any given week, we will have about 20 micro projects (homework assignments), a few short-term projects carrying over from week to week (proposals, capstones, anything where the student is turning in bits and pieces of a complete work) and long-term deals (thesis and dissertation work). Reading up on project management and applying some of those principles is quite useful. This career, side gig, whatever, requires good self-management if you are going to be successful.
