Translation fees are below the market average and vary based on the difficulty and scope of the project. We recommend working with our service team if you have bigger translation projects for personal recommendations for a translator.
For translation services, we cover the following languages:
For any orders you place for writing services at WriterAccess, Copyscape is included with no additional charge or fee. We are adding a Copyscape option for customers and writers to use, but that will require additional fees to cover our costs with Copyscape.
You can currently pay for membership with Visa or MasterCard.
Yes and No. We do accept PayPal for content purchases. But we do not currently accept PayPal for initial signup. This feature upgrade is, however, listed on the Product Roadmap for up-votes to potentially include in our platform.
Your payment goes into an escrow account to ensure you have the funds required to pay for the services rendered by the freelancer. Escrow deposits for orders and projects are not paid out until you approve the work, so your delight is 100% guaranteed.
Unlike many platforms, we’re fully transparent with our fees. We pay our freelancers 70% of any purchase amount for writing services. If you paid $100, the writer would get $70.
We keep 30% as our fee to help us:
Yes. You have 30 days to get a refund back on any deposit amount you’ve put in your account, subject to a 10% processing fee.
Thanks for the clarification request on our deposit policy. We'll also share the lowdown on our terms and conditions.
Here’s a quick recap of how it all works, in plain English.
Yes. WriterAccess offers negotiable pre-pay invoicing services for US-based companies who qualify, saving credit card transaction fees and aligning with your vendor payment policies.
The cost of each content piece is dependent on the star level of the freelancer you select (star levels are given based on the writer's experience and subject matter expertise). The ranges vary from 2 cents per word or $25 per project up to more than $2 per word or $200 per project.
The lowest star rating begins at 2 cents per word for writers and $25 per project for designers. We created a star-level slider that nicely explains what you can expect when you pay more money for freelance services.

Star levels have a fixed fee per word. Yet we start out freelancers at levels often below what the marketplace will prove they should be making. So look to hire NEW talent for the best deals by visiting the Search option and using the Show New freelancers feature.
For the higher-quality content you seem to need, I would probably go with a 5 or 6-star writer. Five-star writer rates start at 8 cents per word. Experiment a bit, try and 5-star vs. 6-star writer on shorter articles, before you go all-in with a larger 1200-word article.
You're in the driver's seat when it comes to pricing projects at WriterAccess. However, freelancers are in the passenger seat with the final decision to accept your rates, agree to your terms, deliver on your proposed requirements, and select projects where they can exceed your expectations to boost their performance and ratings.
A great place to start the negotiation process is to post a Casting Call with your specifications and either seek prices from freelancers or suggest a price for the work. Freelancers will apply for the project, submit their prices, and/or agree to your prices and terms, and you can pick the winner and launch the order to one of the freelancers.
Another way to manage pricing challenges is to create a Love List of numerous freelancers with a higher star level than the price you propose paying for the project. All the freelancers on the list will have access to review the order, and possible select the order for execution and delivery.
Finally, Crowd Orders are another way to lower costs by 10% on each order. You select the star level for the order, and any writer with that star rating or above will be eligible to review and select the order.
WriterAccess Pro Membership offers access to freelance designers, illustrators, animators, photographers, and videographers. All designer orders are priced by the project. You can name your price and post an order to a freelancer. Or you can post a Call to find designers interested and available for your project with pricing you can either suggest or request.
The pool of designers is purposely much smaller than our pool of writers, with about 500 freelancer designers, as we want to get work out to a smaller group before we expand.
Turns out the Content Strategists (CS) and Content Marketing Managers (CMM) are really THE key for content marketing success. ALL of our larger customers using WriterAccess have a CS or CMM working in the platform daily, executing content plans they’ve developed to achieve content marketing goals.
You’ll have access to WriterAccess Academy immediately upon sign up, offering a 22-hour Content Strategy MasterClass lead by 11 world-class trainers (OK, including me). We walk students through the five pillars of content strategy, including content planning, creation, optimization, distribution, and performance.
This masterclass is amazing, and free, for both our customers and freelancers. You can earn your certification badge, which freelancers showcase on the profile pages.
You can also join our platform at the highest-tier premium level membership for access to our Specialty Marketplace to hire Content Strategists and Content Managers for projects.
You purchase content separately from your software subscription fee. You can place orders with freelancers at their preferred rate (visible within their profiles), or request custom quotes. Escrow deposits for orders and projects are not paid out until you approve the work, so your delight is 100% guaranteed.
