How much can you earn as an editor?

Disclaimer: Because we have hundreds of clients across dozens of different industries, our pricing is custom to the specific project. In turn, this flexibility affords us the option to offer custom rates in our assignment offers to editors.

CopyPress editors have the potential to make a legitimate living working in our community. Once you complete your onboarding, you’ll enter into a trial period where we’ll test your capabilities across some of our lower-level clients. This trial period allows us to see your editing skills and also assess how well you work with our team and how you conduct yourself with writers.

On average, our editors earn .01 per word for most standardized work. However, depending on the specific project and the amount of research and specialization required to properly edit the content, you may see editing rates of .02+ per word.
