Common questions

Can I create more than one Visit a URL Way to Earn?

Yes. You can create as many as you like.

How do customers get points for visiting the URL?

This works similarly to the Social Media Ways to Earn where we go off of the honor system, as points are awarded shortly after clicking the button. This means it is important that your Action Name describes what you want the member to do once they visit the URL.

For example, let's say we want to get more YouTube subscribers. A bad Action Name would be "Check out our YouTube channel". A good Action Name would be "Subscribe to our YouTube Channel".
