BlogUp being a partner program, there is no upfront pay per post or pay per words. However, if you are good with your storytelling, it gives you the opportunity to earn more than what you can actually earn with fixed pay per post or word. It is a collaborative growth program. In brief, the process is as follows:
- Your awesome content. Our platform.
- We generate revenue via Ads on our site every time someone reads your content. You get a % of this Ad revenue.
- You also earn a bonus for every traffic you bring to our site.
- It works more like a royalty program. Doesn’t matter when your post was published, you keep earning from it every time and anytime someone reads it.
- You also get paid through our other available earning options which are exclusive of your Ads revenue and traffic bonus.
Payment = Ad Revenue % + Traffic Bonus
* Ad Revenue %: You get 30% of the revenue we generate via ads from your content. You will be able to track your earnings in real time from your dashboard once your partner account is activated.
* Traffic Bonus: You earn $6 per 1000 Unique Page Views(UPV). It means you earn $0.006 for every single traffic your content brings to our platform. Based on your continuous performance, you may earn maximum up to $10 per UPV.
Payment Options Available As Per Our Writer’s Hierarchy:
1. Guest Contributor = No payments available.
2. Story Partner = Ad Revenue % + Traffic Bonus
3. Contributor = Fixed Pay Per Post + Traffic Bonus
* To be eligible as a Story Partner, you should have at least one published story on our platform and a minimum of 1000 Unique Page Views(UPV). This 1000 UPV may be from one single post or more than one post.
* The reason why your partner account is not activated till 1000UPV is that during this period, we work closely with you to be on the same page regarding the kind of content you should write, they way you should write so that it works better for you in terms of people reading and sharing it.
* Once your partner account is activated, your first 1000UPV as a Guest Contributor also gets billed. So don’t worry about it.
* As a Guest Contributor, you are allowed to submit only a maximum of 5 stories to achieve your qualifying 1000UPVs to become our Story Partner. If you do not meet the minimum criteria of 1000UPVs within 5 stories, you will not qualify as a Story Partner and also you don’t get paid. But you may still continue to write with us.
* Even if you do not meet the minimum criteria of 1000UPVs within your first 5 posts, we may still choose you as a Story Partner if we find your writing and choice of topics adding value to our platform.
- Payment is released when your account accumulates a minimum of $50 or more. You can send us a payment request every time you meet your payment threshold.
- Even after reaching $50, if you do not send us a payment request, your earnings will keep accumulating until you make the request.
- To receive any payments from us, you should be having an Indian Bank account with NEFT facility or a PayPal account if you are not from India.
