We founded The Story Market to provide freelancers across the globe the opportunity to sell their stories to other countries. Being multi-lingual content creators ourselves we wanted to increase the diversity of reporting across the globe by sharing the stories of the world's best journalists.
The three most asked questions
- How does the verification process work?
Answer: After you signed up we will review your portfolio and examine the quality of your writing. Before your first article will get online, we will ask you to provide us with a copy of your government ID or passport. The identity verification helps us keep The Story Market secure, fight fraud, and more—and it’s something you’ll only have to do once. ;)
- How do I get paid?
Answer: Hassle-free and on-time. You will receive all funds for the completed sales and projects of the last 30 days within 30 days. It is important that as one of the first steps after signing up, you provide your bank details.
- Can I work directly with a publisher and not use the platform?
Answer: Sending or receiving payment directly is considered circumvention, and is a violation of The Story Market's Terms & Conditions unless an opt-out fee is paid or one year has passed since the freelancer or publisher have deleted their account on the platform.
Whether you’re a freelancer or a client, you can be assured that contracts made through The Story Market are safe, timely, and hassle-free. That’s because The Story Market requires all payments to go through our platform and offers moderation when issues occur.
