    the organizers could have paid them little / less

    If they (perfomers) had not been very famous, the organizers could have paid them little / less.

    I suppose both are correct but they have different meanings. Am I right?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    For me, only "less" works.
