If we add your review but, for whatever reason, delete it from the site (for reasons including but not limited to discovering you plagiarized it from another source), you do NOT get credit

2) Once your total amount earned reaches a minimum of $60 ("the Payout Minimum"), we will pay you via paypal (or Elance) within 2 business days. You will be responsible for paying whatever paypal or other fees occur, we will not add them to your gross payment.

Independent contractor status: This payment does not make you an employee of Allreaders.com or Alltowndata.com. The adding of a review to our publically viewable database and/or the payment for any such reviews do not imply endorsement of your reviews.


4) We may, from time to time, amend the rules of this offer, and such amended rules will be posted here. Your continued use of the site signifies your agreement to the current terms.

6) If we catch you copying your reviews from another source, you will FORFEIT all accrued payments.

You may be thinking "Will I get paid?" We have a lot of terms to protect ourselves because we see a lot of low quality reviews and attempts at plagiarism. But you only have to write 6 good reviews to see if you get paid. It's not a tremendous test of time. We also have reviewers who have submitted hundreds of reviews. They're not working for charity.
