What’s the difference between Full Rights vs. Usage vs. Unique licenses?

With a Full Rights license we remove the article from our archives and the purchaser is allowed to edit, change and even resell the article.

A Usage license is basically the right to reprint the article as it is in the attached document.

Purchasing a Unique license is similar except that we remove the article from the archives so that no one else can purchase it.

Why can’t I login to the forum?

The writer forum is separate from the main site and requires a unique set of login credentials.

How do I change my email address?

Content Questions

How long does it take to review my article?

We try and review articles as fast as we can, but generally they’re reviewed within 3-5 business days. There are many factors that influence how fast an article is reviewed so this may vary. If you’ve submitted an article for a customer’s Request, it will be prioritized and reviewed faster than usual.

How do I provide customers with revisions or edits?

To submit a revision, find your article in the My Content section. Click “Edit” next to it. On the page you see you’ll be able to upload a new file. Simply find the revised file on your computer, upload it, and we’ll notify the customer immediately that their revision is complete and available.

Why did an article disappear from My Content?

If an article disappears from your list shortly after you posted it, it has likely been rejected. Check your email box for a rejection notice (check your spam filter or junk mail folder too). You can also find copies of rejection notices in your Constant Content inbox.

Am I able to edit an article I’ve submitted?

You can edit submissions that are still under review. Find the article in Your Content and choose the “Edit” link under the column labeled “Action.”

Here you can edit the:

  • Short summary
  • Long summary
  • Price
  • Keywords
  • Upload new files

The only thing that you can’t edit is the contents of the document(s) that you have attached.

Why was my article rejected?

There are a number of reasons for why a Constant Content editor will reject an article. Some of the more common reasons include:

  • The long summary was too short – at least 1/3 of the article must be included in the long summary.
  • Self-promotion – Constant Content does not permit self-promotion.
  • Grammar or spelling error – Constant Content requires that work be free of errors in spelling or grammar.

If an article was rejected, how do I resubmit it after doing the revisions?

Once you’ve revised your article, visit the “My Content” section and find the article in question.  Its status should show as “rejected”.  Click “edit” next to the article and make any changes, including uploading your new file, and click Resubmit when ready.  You can also add a note to the editors when doing this.

Why can’t I include links in my content?

Links are only permissible if the requester specifically asks for it. Make sure to add this information into the short summary so that the editor can see it.

Why can’t I contact a customer directly or post contact information?

By using Constant Content, you agree to the site’s Terms and Conditions. Constant Content’s marketing and services bring customers and writers together in an arena that benefits both parties. You win because you have a place to market your work with no up-front fees. The customer wins because he has a place to buy quality content. Bypassing Constant Content’s system and posting contact information to our customers is grounds for account suspension.

If a customer does contact you outside of Constant Content in anyway as a result of your association with Constant Content, you should instruct the customer of the Terms and Conditions and request he or she works with you through Constant Content.

Can customers change the name in the byline?

Yes. When you sell an article’s full rights, you are selling all rights to it. The customer is buying the right to use it in any manner she sees fit. By selling a full rights license, you have become a ghostwriter. Keep this in mind and price your rights according to your wishes. If you do not wish to give up your byline, do not post your article for sale with a full rights license.

What does it mean when an article has a status of “waiting”?

Waiting status happens when someone puts the article into the cart and the system saves the cart while we wait for the payment to be completed.

The waiting status also occurs when customers abandon their purchase after they have gone to our credit card processing checkout to complete the purchase. In these cases, we aim to get in touch with users over the next week to complete the purchase or release the articles so they are viewable to other buyers.

When will I get paid?

In order to get paid on the next payment cycle, you must have earned at least $5. Once you’ve reached this threshold, you will be paid on the next payday.

Payment is made the first week of the beginning of each month. Customers’ payments must be cleared before payment is made.  Payments are made through Stripe or TransferWise to the account you provide us when you signup.

How do I contact Support?

You can email Constant Content any time by filling out the Contact Us form. You may also email support at support@constant-content.com. Use this address to ask questions about your account. For general questions try asking on the Constant Content forums.

Will I receive form 1099K for my taxes?

No. Moresby Media Inc. (Constant-Content) has a US tax number because it files US federal income tax return as a foreign corporation.
