May 14, 2014, Helium Publishing announced plans to terminate all 360 sites of their publishing franchise effective December 15, 2014.
Helium Publishing has been online for over eight years. They have 360 sites with over one million articles available contributed by writers like you and I.
If you are an active contributor or on file as an inactive contributor, Helium will contact you if your contact information is up to date. If not, contact Helium Helpdesk or Helium Discussion Forums for information necessary to obtain all details.
Below are key facts all contributors should be aware of:
Payouts – If you have an active account with a payout balance, you can request this balance as a ‘Final Payout’ through your account. You must have a valid PayPal account and Tax ID number on file. For more details on payouts, review the Announcements and Helium Discussion Forums. Your request must be received by December 15, 2014.

Also there is an FAQ available addressing most questions, you can find the FAQ on the discussion forum and in the Helium Network Dashboard.
Remember these important dates May 21, 2014 is the date Helium becomes a ‘Read only’ site and December 15, 2014 is the date Helium Network online will shut down.
As one of the statements Helium sent to all its contributors, we found this to be the one most personal, “Helium has been a resource for thousands desiring to earn money, hone their writing skills and avenues for writers to address issues they felt important. The Helium site and team will miss all it’s loyal contributors and wish each of you the best in your future career and writing endeavors.”
