Every day, more online publishers are using outside contributors to generate original, quality content. As a result, Ebyline.com has become the leading platform linking freelancers to various publishers and brands throughout the world. With thousands of bloggers at everyone’s fingertips, one limiting step consistently reared its ugly head in the content creation machine.
Managing payments and associated record keeping became a bigger hurdle than finding experienced and knowledgeable content creators. Thankfully, the same service that connects creators with publishers has created a simple solution with the Ebyline Payments for WordPress plug-in.
Ease of Use of Ebyline Payments
As with most WordPress plug-ins, the advantage of Ebyline Payments is in its simplicity. Installation is a snap through the WordPress plug-in directory. All it takes is an upload into your current or new WordPress account and the Ebyline Payments feature is accessible. Any administrator can pay their contributor through the WordPress interface by using a credit card. Pay any post author, for any amount, at any time through PayPal with the click of a button.
After the payment is confirmed the plug-in will take care of the rest. Every payment detail is automatically recorded and a 1099 is generated with no additional administration time for the publisher or contributor. These records can be access at any time by the administrator via Ebyline.com using the same plug-in login credentials.
Simplicity was the key in designing the plug-in, according to Allen Narcisse, Ebyline’s COO and co-founder, “We created the Ebyline Payments plugin to make compensating contributors as easy as editing and publishing their blog posts in WordPress.”
Cost of Ebyline Payments
There is no cost to download the plug-in or membership fee. Instead, an eight percent fee is added to the final payment. This fee covers the tax reporting and cost of payment transaction. The author will receive full compensation for their work. Though some may feel this price is steep, the cost savings of removing administration time for record keeping and tax reporting more than covers the fee. In addition, this price is constant and pay per use with no unexpected add on fees or hidden costs.
Ebyline Payments Security
Whenever a transfer of funds occurs online, security is always a priority. Ebyline Payments provide one hundred percent protection on personal and company information and financial material. To accomplish this, an encrypted payment system is utilized for every transaction allowing for a worry and hassle free method for publishers to pay content creators.
Service of Ebyline
Since 2009, Ebyline has been the original platform to connect publishers with content creators. Ebyline has proven its worth to many principal publishers and media companies throughout the world as a trusted source for quality content creators.

Ebyline Payments is not only a payment device, but also a comprehensive project management tool. Plug-in users can communicate with freelancers, request revisions, track work progress and view payment history within Ebyline.com.
