Get Paid $100 For Your Original List at Listverse

The foundation of Listverse was built on readers submissions of lists and their cumulative efforts to date.

Listverse will pay you $100 for any unusual, humorous and interesting list that you are able to provide them. All you need to do is write a list of 10 items minimum and send it in. If good fortune is on your side, you'll get a reply from them congratulating you on your unique list and they'll pay you $100 via PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, it's recommended that you create one for free.

A simple rule before you submit - ensure that your list is one or two paragraphs per entry. Your carefully put together list will be read and reviewed by them. If it stands out from the rest and agree that it's "one amazing piece of work", they'll grant your list to appear on the front page of Listverse to be read by millions a month! Prepare for rejection too but that's not the end of the world as they will still encourage you for another attempt.

There's a non-negotiable that they stand by - Listverse does not accept writers who do not have a PayPal account and if your country doesn't support it, it's advised not to ask them for an alternative method of payment.

Here are some of their other simple rules.

Lists sent in should be original and not ripped off from anyone or anywhere. As long as it's one or two paragraphs and contains links to reputable sources for factual verification (see Section 7 of their author guide for more details). bear in mind that if it's good enough to publish according to Listverse's standards, you're good to go - and get paid your $100.

To give you an idea of what sort of lists appeal to them:
  • A normal situation looked at in an unexpected way - i.e. ways video games can make you smart
  • Things most people don’t know about.
  • Common misconceptions, facts, and just really good general knowledge about anything - science, for example. 
What doesn't appeal to them:
  • Lists on sports
  • Self-help lists
  • List of personal stories
  • List of gaming
Listverse is open to helping promote your blog, twitter account or a book if you can mention it in the submissions form. They'll place it at the bottom of your list. That's one added bonus I'm sure.

Please be aware that they will only publish original articles and do not post infographics, slideshows, or recycled blog content. Where pictures and videos are concerned, it's okay to exclude them in your list. The guys (editors) at Listverse will select complimentary images/videos for your article. So that's one job less for you.

If you are good and ready to go, head over to their submissions form now!

All the best!
