Earning community points is just one of the ways you can make money with Swom. Swom’s unique Community Participation Bonus pays 50% of company-wide Gold membership commissions into this bonus. Basically, Gold members get paid just to socialize!
To earn shares in the Community Participation Bonus, you need community points. Community points are a rough measurement of your contribution to the Swom community. Your Community Score, which is a running total of all the points you have earned since joining, appears on your public profile as an indication of your participation in the community. It stands to reason, then, that the higher your score, the better your reputation within the Swom community.
How do I earn points?
It couldn’t be easier! To earn points, all you have to do is connect with other members and interact positively with them. This is how community points are allocated.
The point here is that members are rewarded for interacting positively with each other. This doesn’t include spamming, flaming, posting nonsense or trying to cheat the system and consequently the other members. Doing any of these will cause you to lose points and could even get your account deleted. The use of automated software is strictly prohibited and actively monitored.
On the 10th of each month, the total number of community points earned by Gold members during the previous 30 days are added up and payment is made. The more community points you have earned that month, the bigger apportion of the bonus pool you will get. You are only paid on the points you have earned during that month.
Once commissions have been calculated, your points are reset to zero for the next month. This doesn’t affect your Community Score under your profile picture.
How much you earn is dependant on the number of points you have earned since commissions were last calculated and the size of the bonus pool.
How many points can I earn?
You can earn 200 points a day but this doesn’t include community chests.
What are community chests?
|Community chests are random bonuses of 5 – 100 points awarded by Swom which you can earn on top of your daily allowance of 200 points. There is nothing you can do to ‘make’ the system give you community chests but the more active you are, the more likely you are to receive them. Some days you may get several and others you may get none at all. Members have reported winning up to 500 points from community chests in a day but this is rare.|
