Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about the affiliate program.
How much commission can I earn?
You can earn up to 30% recurring commission, depending on the cohort you join.

The best part is that recurring commission compounds month to month.

If you refer 50 people every month, your commission would look as follows:
Month 1 = $750
Month 2 = $1500
Month 3 =

As long as you keep converting people, your commission will keep rising.

What do you mean by 'bring-your-own-key'?
Bring-your-own-key is a term that represents the operating model where the user brings their own API keys. By doing this, we avoid the overhead of centrally managing AI token usage which keeps our operating costs low, meanwhile you benefit from unlimited access, dedicated limits and extremely cost-effective usage.

In practice, you pay us for using our software and you pay OpenAI for any AI usage you incur. It works out very cost-effective when compared to plans where the AI usage is included in the plan price.

This means that you will need to have a paid OpenAI API account with billing enabled. Settings up an OpenAI account and getting hold of an API key is super simple, and we will guide your through the entire process.

You should also ensure that your rate limits are sufficient to use Machined, we require Tier 2 rate limits as described by OpenAI in their documentation.

You can check your rate limits for your account at

How much does it cost to generate articles?
The cost of an article depends on the model used and the length of the article so it isn't possible to provide or predict an exact cost before an article is generated.

Looking at the thousands of article written by our users, the average cost for an article is:
- Roughly $0.08 when using GPT-3.5 and
- Roughly $0.80 when using GPT-4

Remember this is the cost your pay directly to OpenAI.
Can I use GPT-4?
Machined operates on a bring-your-own-key basis, so which models are available depends on your own OpenAI API account.

In order to use GPT-4 it must be available and active on your OpenAI Platform account, you can see which models are available to you and their rate limits, when you configure your API Key in Machined.

OpenAI have started to roll out GPT-4 across most accounts, although it seems that brand new accounts with no payment history may not have it on day one...

Does your content pass AI Detection?
While we constantly work on improving the quality of our content and making it seem more human-like, we’re not focused on fooling AI detectors, for a few very important reasons.

There is no authoritative AI Detector
There are myriad AI Detection tools on the market, using a variety of open and proprietary algorithms to try to determine whether text is AI generated. Each tool will give you a different result, and you will be met with both false positives as well as false negatives along the way. So which tool do you decide to trust?

You can never really trust the results
AI detection algorithms change almost daily. What comes back as having fooled a specific detector one day, will come back as being detected the next. You will soon find yourself in a cat and mouse chase that you can never effectively win.

You can never win the AI Detector arms race
Whatever tool you decide to trust, it is almost a guarantee that Google/Bing have their own, which will be multiple levels of magnitude more powerful than yours. We will always be behind the big tech firms in this regard - and all you gain from using AI detection as a consumer is false confidence.

AI content is not penalised by default
The main search engines, like Google and Bing have already clarified that they do not penalise content for the sole reason of being AI generated. As long as your content is high-quality, serves a purpose and brings value to your readers, where it originates is of a much lesser consequence.

Google on AI content:

Our founder's view on this topic:

Our approach
The approach we recommend is to focus on creating high-quality, valuable content that serves your readers - this is exactly the role of high-quality interlinked content clusters.

If you want your content to excel even further, focus on adding additional value on top of your AI generated content. Can you add a personalised viewpoint? How about custom images? An expert opinion maybe?nThese additions will boost the credibility of your content, however it is generated…
What is a content cluster?
A Content Cluster is a collection of interconnected articles focused on a specific topic. It helps establish expertise, engage readers, and improve your topical authority. Organizing your content into clusters can enhance your website's visibility, attract more organic traffic and improve search engine rankings.

Read more about content clusters in our docs.
Are there any limits to the size of content clusters?
There are currently no fixed limits on the number of content clusters you can create.

Clusters come in various shapes and sizes though.
- Auto-pilot clusters come in small (5 articles), medium (10 articles) and large (30 articles) flavours.
- Manual clusters are limited to 50 keywords/articles.

The Unlimited plan gives you complete unrestricted access to create as many clusters as you need. This may change for future plans, which may vary in price, structure and allowance.
How many languages do you support?
We understand the importance of reaching a global audience, which is why our platform supports content generation in over 100+ languages.

Do you offer an LTD (lifetime deal)?
No, we do not offer a lifetime deal.

For what it's worth, we used to have a special LTD for very early adopters when we were first starting up but that was a while ago and we have since transitioned to a subscription-only model.
Do you offer a free trial?
No, we can do better than that! We offer a Free Plan that let's you create three full clusters with up to 18 articles, every single month.

The free plan includes our fully unrestricted AI Content Writer with choice of AI model, and multiple writing styles. This gives you a much better chance to see our content in as much detail as you want before committing to a paid plan. You can rewrite articles as many times as you like to see how all the features work. Hell, you can even publish them all and see how well our clusters rank :)

Please note that some other features are restricted in the free plan; you won't be able to create manual clusters or publish directly to your website - you will need to upgrade for those.

Don't forget, even though our plan is free, you need to cover your own token usage costs.
What is the cancellation policy?
You can cancel your subscription at any time and you will no longer be charged. After canceling, you will have full access to your account and be able to generate content until the end of your billing cycle.
Do you offer refunds?
Yes, we offer a 14-day money back guarantee.

If you aren't satisfied in the first 14 days of trying the service, reach out to our team at and we can provide a refund.
How can I earn even more commission?
If you are an influencer with a following of over 100k on any single platform, please reach out to us directly, we would love to work with you!
