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 Points for Social Media ways to earn where we go off of the honour 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.
