Investors should consider selling puts. You can achieve some very high annualized returns at strikes significantly below the current price. e.g.

Jan 14 $25 strike at $4.55 has 20% discount and 20% annualized return.

Do you pay the dividend if you are short puts on dividend date?

No, unless they are "special dividends", i.e. very large. If, say, GameStop decided to do a one-time special dividend of $2 just to return some cash to shareholders, then the CBOE would adjust their strikes to compensate. But, except for that, options pretty much ignore dividends.
