Persona Paper Payment Comparison
Over the last few days, I've been monitoring pay rates for Persona Paper and Post Any Article to see which one pays better. I thought I would post a brief article to share with you my logic about who pays better and why.
Post Any Article has a low cash out, which is what drew me to it initially... however, I found they pay less than Persona Paper in part because they are restrictive with their payouts. Allow me to explain...
Post Any Article pays more for views. You earn about $2.80 for every 1000 views your articles get while you'll only get about $2.00 (2000 coins) for every 1000 on Persona Paper. However, Post Any Article will only pay for those views if it was viewed by someone not logged in as a user. Meaning, if another Post Any Article user views your post while logged in, you get nothing. So that restriction in itself, can make gathering views slow going.
Even If you were to choose to count on the $2.80 per 1000 views, I believe Persona Paper will payout better in the end. This is because Persona Paper pays out about $2.00 (2000 coins) per 1000 comments, as opposed to the $.90 per 1000 comments Post Any Article Pays. It's also because Persona Paper pays you to post meaningful comments on other posts, where as Post Any Article does not. Math seems to show $1.00 (1000 coins) for every 1000 comments you post (if they are meaningful and relevant).
Of course, pay rates fluctuate, and you may get more views than comments or vice versa, but as a general rule I do feel that Persona Paper is a better paying site. If your experience shows otherwise, feel free to post in the comments as I would really like to know.
EDIT: The above calculations are based on my own observations with my own PP and PAA accounts. While I believe them to be accurate for my own accounts, I can't speak for everyone. This is especially true with PAA as that rate not only varies by day but also by user.
