What is Textbroker?
Textbroker is an article writing service that hires independent contractors to write unique, quality content. Founded in 2008, Textbroker is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and is a member of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce. Between their US and German branches they have more than 100,000 authors and 30,000 clients.
How Does Textbroker Work?
Textbroker does all the administrative work for you so you can concentrate on what you do best – writing. There is no lack of work with Textbroker. They have hundreds of client orders which are known as OpenOrders.
An OpenOrder is an order that is sent to a pool of authors who are qualified at the level of quality the client requires. OpenOrders are visible to many authors at a time. You can accept only one OpenOrder at a time. Once you complete an order you can select your next order. There is no limited to the number of articles you can write each day.
Once you submit an article it is checked for duplicate content. If you are required to make any revisions you will have 24 hours to do so. The article then goes to the client who has 3 days to accept the article or request revisions. If the client does not respond within 3 days the article is automatically accepted. When an article is accepted your Textbroker account is automatically credited.
Each article you write is rated by the Textbroker editorial team. The quality of an article ranges from 2 to 5 stars where 2 is the lowest and 5 is the highest. Your quality rating is the average rating of your last 5 articles. The higher your quality rating the more money you can earn.
OpenOrders are paid a fixed per-word rate. The client chooses the quality rate they require and this determines the price per word. The total earnings for each assignment are visible on the order details page so you know exactly what you will be paid. You are eligible to select OpenOrder from a lower quality category than your quality rating.
See the chart below for price rates.

Are There Any Complaints About Textbroker?
There are no complaints that I could find.
If you enjoy writing and your spelling and grammatical skills are strong you could do well with Textbroker. The key is to spend time and write good quality content from the get go, so you can start out at a 4 star quality rating and quickly work your way up to a 5 star. This is where you will earn the most money for your efforts. Don’t expect to earn much more than pocket change for a quality rating that is 3 stars or less.
