It’s very clear about the conditions and motivates me to write a novel in English language. I’m not a native speaker, so it could be a real challenge for me, although I’m already a writer in my own country.

FAQ# About Payment
3.1 Payment Method & Account InformationPayment MethodWe offer payments via bank transfer and Payoneer. We highly recommend Payoneer as it allows you to receive payments shortly after dispatch. Payments made through bank transfers might experience some delay before they're credited to your account.Ensure that you input your payment information with utmost accuracy. If there are mistakes in the provided payment details, there's a risk of payment failure. In cases of payment failure, the amount will be deferred to the subsequent month. If the payment is successful but sent to an incorrect account due to inaccurate information, we will not reissue the payment.It's important to select your preferred payment method wisely. Remember, any associated transfer fees will be your responsibility. If you notice a discrepancy between the expected payment and the amount you receive, this discrepancy is likely due to the deduction of transfer fees. GoodNovel does not deduct any fees fro
