Kickbooster is home to various types of referral campaigns and commission types, whether it be eCommerce stores or Crowdfunders, cash commissions or store credit.
Depending on the type of referral campaign you're participating in, the payout process may vary.
Here is a detailed description of the payout schedule for each referral campaign type:
Kickstarter & Indiegogo
Once a crowdfunding campaign is over and is successfully funded, commissions are paid out approximately one month later.
To further elaborate, once a campaign ends, Kickbooster will issue an invoice to the creator for all Booster commissions if the campaign reached its funding goal. Payment is processed 21 days later, allowing time for them to receive their funds from Kickstarter/Indiegogo.
Once payment is successfully received by the creator, Kickbooster will process your commissions via PayPal (account balance of +$20) on the following 1st or 15th (or following business day).
Note: Your commission on a referral will be void if a backer fails to rectify a failed payment attempt before Kickbooster will validate referrals a minimum of two business days after the crowdfunding campaign has ended.
Indiegogo InDemand campaigns
Indiegogo InDemand campaigns are charged on a monthly basis for all referrals made 30+ days ago.
Once payment is successfully received each month, Kickbooster will process your commissions via PayPal (account balance of +$20) on the following 1st or 15th (or following business day).
Commissions are paid to Boosters on the 1st and 15th (or following business day) of every month for referrals that have successfully completed the referral review period (up to 30 days). Once payment is received by the Creator, Kickbooster will process your commissions via PayPal (account balance of +$20) on the following 1st or 15th (or following business day).
Once your referrals have successfully completed their referral review period (up to 30 days), the store credit will be available for you to claim.
Tracking your commissions
Your Kickbooster dashboard will always show you your total commissions earned, total commissions paid to date, commissions in review, and the amount of your next payment with the tentative payment date (if applicable):
"Commissions in Review" is the commission amount for any referrals that are in the following state:
The Crowdfunding campaign is still live.
The referral for an eCommerce store is still in the referral review period.
Payment for the commissions have not yet been received from the Campaign Owner.
Your Campaigns table will show you if commissions have been collected by the Campaign Owner and also if you have or have not received payment.
If you want to view your commissions for a specific campaign, simply click on the campaign and head to your Analytics dashboard. Similar to your Kickbooster dashboard, your Analytics dashboard will show your total commissions earned, commissions paid to date, commissions in review, and next payment with the tentative payment date (if applicable) for the specific campaign:
The example shown is an Indiegogo InDemand campaign where the booster has already received $719 in commissions and a pending payment of $21 is due to be paid on November 1, 2019.
Also available in your Analytics settings is your Referral History, which will display the Reward status (In review, pending payment, or paid) and Payment date for each referral for that campaign:
Note: Tentative dates are based on Kickbooster successfully receiving payment from the Creator when their invoice is due. There will be a delay in payment if Kickbooster does not successfully receive payment on time.
Keep your payment information up to date
Kickbooster processes commission payments via PayPal for account balances of +$20.
Ensure that you have provided your PayPal email address in order to receive commission payments.
Your PayPal email address can be added to your Account Details inside your Profile settings:
PayPal regulations prevent us from sending money to PayPal accounts that are categorized as Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs).
PayPal regulations prevent us from sending money to users outside of these supported countries.
Payment is made for all account balances of $20 and over.
We only invoice crowdfunding campaigns that have successfully reached their funding goal (or Indiegogo flex funding). Therefore, Booster rewards are only paid on projects that reach or exceed their initial goal.
