    I've paid for original articles in the past. I can't remember the exact price but they were $5 or less per article. Like most things, it really depends on the quality you are looking for. If you want re-writes and high quality is not really an issue, you can probably get them done for $0.01 to $0.02 per word. Many article writers charge per word, but when I'm doing a deal with a writer I generally prefer to agree a price per article.

    $1.5? lol
    some writers charge almost $25/article. And you could just get it for $1.5? You're kidding.

    Any writer worth their salt will take as much time to rewrite a PLR article as they will to write an original one. Believe it or not it's just as much work if the writer is willing to do it right. That's why I charge the same rates for rewrites as I do for originals.

    You would be better getting a price per article like Fergal suggested if they are all the same size roughly, or a range of prices depending on article size. It deters those that elongate a phrase to increase their word count. They do it for one reason. So they can charge you more. For example these rogues would say "what you could always do is", instead of just "you could" or "you can" or "how about...". Then they charge you for six words instead of two.

    And if you get it at $1.50, you're probably not getting a manual rewrite. You're getting your article run through article spinning software, which usually spews out such nonsense that you'll need it rewritten all over again. Flowery writing that uses unnatural sounding language isn't the same as quality writing either. Basically, you get what you pay for.

    Of course, you can't expect to pay the same for a 300 word rewrite as you would for a 1000 word rewrite. It's best to be specific about what you need done, the volume and turnaround time. That will get you a more accurate price.

    Lastly, always request to see previous writing samples too before committing to anything. Hope that helps! :)

    The article writing now seems can get in cheap price now. Normally i'm getting good quality re-writer for the price $1.5/100 words. For the everage quality, it is about $0.7~$1/100 words

    Professional or not is depends on the customer requirement. And there are no standard for the judgement. Normally i pay $1/100words and i get the article that able to pass the ezinearticle, then it is fine for me

    It depends on how many words each article contains. It also depends on the ability of the writer. I suggest you visit sites like Odesk.com and Onlinejobs.ph. Post an Ad in those websites and indicate your budget for the said project.

    As I have observed, article price varies. It'd also depend on how experienced you are and the current demand and supply of writers in the market.

    I agree with Khyle. I posted an ad at onlinejobs.ph about 4 months ago and found a good writer who lives in the Philippines. She charges $2 for each rewritten article with 400 words and she's really good. I also asked her to write original articles for me for $4 each and I was satisfied with her outputs. But I must say, it took me a while before I found a good writer like her.

    I've been offered 3$ for a 300 word article.. I wanted the word count to be 250 but no deal.. So I canceled the deal . To me, 300 words seems a bit much for 3$
