Interact Media is another place that freelance writers can make some cash. They require you to do an initial article so that they can rate your writing skills. Once you are rated, you can claim assignments that match your rating. Of course, how much you're paid depends on your rating. They also offer payments for affiliate work.
Interact pays twice a month through PayPal. The site takes a percentage of your wages in return for providing you with assignments.
Personally, this sounds like Textbroker and some other low-paying sites I've seen. Has anyone tried them before? How much do they pay on average?
