    I have looked into Listverse before and though they pay $100 per approved article, they do have a lot of requirements and you’ll need to submit optimal work. It’s definitely doable, but you have think about your effort vs. pay.

    Keep inspiring,

    Hey there Warren,
    It’s good to know there are sites that are willing to pay that amount, especially once you get used to their style and requirements. But you’re right, time is money and at some point you have to call it quits if there faster jobs you can perform for a similar cash amount.

    Thankfully, since they accept many different topics, you can occasionally find something you’re passionate about to make the writing process easier.

    I read somewhere that listverse will still have to rights to unpublished works:

    “The truth about Listverse:
    If you create a list please make sure you read the small print. If you create a list and they choose not to publish your list they still own the rights to it.
    Yes you read that correctly.
    If you take the time to submit 1,000 words, you turn in your list, they say ” we don’t want to publish it”, you still can’t publish it under your own name because they now own it.
    Proceed with caution. The general grade for this site is about a C+. You have a 30/ 70 chance of acceptance.”

    Is this true?

      I wondered about that too. Here is what I found.

      From http://listverse.com/submit-a-list/
      5. You agree that you voluntarily transfer all rights relating to the content to Listverse Ltd. if and when it is paid for. Rejected lists remain your property.

      Thank you to the author of this post! I appreciate the help. 🙂

    After several submissions over a long period of time and no answers, I would have to say avoid this website. You can work on an article for hours or days and then send it off and hear nothing back ever. It’s just a waste of time you could be using to write or submit elsewhere. If they sent rejection letters that would be a different story but apparently they do not.

    I’m actually a bit skeptical. I wonder if they accept articles, wait a while, and then use their staff to steal the material and rewrite the letter for their own uses. I’ve never met anyone in real life or online that has been paid for an article. I’ve seen one comment in my searches claiming to have been paid and it was very, very suspect, likely a shill. The more I think about it and look at the evidence, the more this seems likely.

    After all, why no rejection letters? Every publication uses them, but the giant listverse does not? It’s just annoying at the least, you could be using that time waiting to submit to other publications.

    Curious as to whether or not one person can submit multiple lists and, if accepted, be paid for all of them that pass your scrutiny
