Referral 100$ credit

I signed up using my colleague referrals link and confirmed account with passport and selfie, it says that everyone referral gets $100 in credit over 60 day, but I don’t see anything in my account to indicate I have a free credit. Can you confirm I have a free credit, and if so where do I see this in my account.
Thank you.

Hello, @alguleac

As per the normal rule, you need to add a card or send some money (USD 5) from Paypal to get the account activated. Once this is done your account will be verified and you will receive the free credit.

Let me know if you have any questions.


  • Credit card was tied initially and verified successfully with test charge. Also the profile was immediately confirmed by passport and selfie, as I noted above, but for some reason there is no free credit, which as a student is really needed to complete my qualification work.

  • I also didn’t received the credits but my account is fully verified and payment setup is also done. I have also raised a ticket regarding this. Waiting for reply :)
