Update 7/6/14 – Quality Gal has re-branded and is now known as Online Writing Jobs.
What is Quality Gal?
Quality Gal is the name of a site you can write for and get upfront pay for your approved content.
How much does Quality Gal pay?
Quality Gal pays between $12 and $25 for each article submitted.
How often does Quality Gal pay and what method of payment do they use?
You will get paid for approved work from Quality Gal every Friday, and you will be paid with Paypal. They can also send a check if Paypal won’t work for you.
What is the application process like for Quality Gal?
To apply to write for Quality Gal, you’ll have to register on their writer panel and also send some forms either through fax or to their email address. There are several forms that must be filled out, including a writer application, non-compete/confidentiality agreement, a content release form, and a few others including a W8 or W9. The W8 is for non-US residents, and the W9 is for US residents. Once you have submitted the required paperwork, you may or may not be contacted with a test assignment depending on whether or not they need writers. If you haven’t been contacted within 90 days of applying, you can apply again. If you get a test assignment, you’ll have to finish it before the specified deadline. Quality Gal will review this and let you know if you’ve been accepted as a writer for their site.
What types of articles do you write for Quality Gal?
Articles are on a variety of different subjects, and the articles are written for a number of different clients. From what I have read, you have to include a lot of links in the articles you write. Articles that must contain more links tend to pay more than articles that contain less links. You might occasionally get rewrites on the things you submit, and if you don’t finish what you’re supposed to edit within the specified time frame, the article will be sent back into the pool of titles, and you won’t get paid.
Does Quality Gal accept writers that live outside of the US?
Yes, it appears that they do. Writers from Canada are definitely welcome to apply as well as other countries (not clear on which other countries). Writers that don’t live in the US have to fill out W8 form in order to paid, however.
My Experience With Quality Gal
I have considered applying, and I did get as far as setting up an account on their writer panel, but unfortunately, my printer went kaput so I was not able to complete the process and send in all the paperwork. I have since remedied my printer problem, but have still not finished the application process. I would honestly like to, but my plate is so full with other things at the moment that I don’t know how much I could contribute to their site if I were accepted as a writer.
Final Thoughts on Quality Gal
Even though I have no experience with this company myself, I have looked into it and the vast majority of the things I have read on various forums and others sites is incredibly positive. Most people have a wonderful experience writing for this site, and for that reason I would recommend it if you need a higher-paying “egg” to add to your list of sites you write for. Their website is very user-friendly and has all kinds of FAQs and helpful information on everything from writing for them to applying. They seem to encourage contact with their company and include lots of email addresses so you can get in touch with them if you can’t meet deadlines, etc. They state that they will occasionally try to work with their writers on things like that, and I think that is great! I recommend applying here, and if I end up finishing the application process myself, I will certainly come back and update this post with more information on my experience.
