Pincredibles is a new social-shopping and sharing community that shares profits with members for posting cool stuff, commenting, "like"-ing, referring friends and more.
That's right. Share the stuff you love and get paid for doing it. Now you don't have to feel guilty about your little online obsession!
How Does It Work?
Well, you just add our little PinCred It! button to your browser's toolbar. Whenever you're on a website and see something cool, click the button to add it to your Pincredibles collection.
That's it! You can also re-post stuff from other members, right here on the Pincredibles website. You can "like" other members stuff, comment on it, etc. They can do the same with the stuff you share. We're all just one big happy sharing family. And all of this activity contributes to your profit-share.
Stop It. Where Does The Money Come From?
Well, we earn commissions from over 21,643 online stores. When members click on pins and retailer links found on or shared from the Pincredibles website to make purchases at any of these stores, Pincredibles may earn a commission. We share most of that commission with members.
Pincredibles may also generate income from advertising and other sources. Most of this will be shared with members too.
How Much Do I Earn?
The number one thing to always remember is that everyone will be rewarded more if they just enjoy using the site "naturally". That is, pin only the stuff you like or really want to share with others. Also, like, share, comment, repin, etc. "genuinely" and life will be good!
In other words, just think of the rewards as an added bonus for doing what you enjoy!
That being said, below is our Beta commission structure. Please note that it is subject to change and likely will as we adjust to properly align incentives. It's also very important to understand that the percentages below are based on the commission we receive from featured merchants and NOT the purchase price (oh, how we wish we could do the latter)! Each merchant actually pays commission at a different rate, so we are working to get the commissions posted on the site where possible.
There are two categories of commissions: Member Purchases & Non-Member Purchases. For any commission to track, there must be a click from a Pincredibles pin or retailer link to the retailer's website. Also, eBay and Amazon currently do not pay commissions that can be tracked to a pin and/or paid to members. We work to keep the list of featured (i.e. paying) retailers up to date.
|You purchase through a participating retailer.||10% of the retailer commission to you
plus receive a 20% bonus for clicking another member's pin for a total of 30%
|Someone clicks a pin you CREATED or RE-PINNED to make a purchase.||20% of the retailer commission to you|
|Someone RE-PINs your pin, which leads to a purchase.||20% of the retailer commission to you also|
|Someone clicks any pin you share (ex: on Facebook) to make a purchase.||20% of the retailer commission to you|
|Someone you referred makes a purchase.||10% of the retailer commission to you|
|Someone you referred creates or shares a pin that leads to a purchase.||10% of the retailer commission to you|
See where we're going here? We want you to discover cool stuff that other members have pinned. We now all have incentive to help each other earn! We also want you to repin, like, and comment on the pins you actually like.
Also, when someone repins you, it's good for both of you. We have currently limited the number of repins per day, however, so use them wisely!
Finally, we are still determining whether the referral program will pay out forever, or if there will be a limit (ex: 1 year from signup).
Where Can I Check My Earnings?

What's Up With Referring?
Refer members to Pincredibles and earn more! For each member that joins, you'll be paid on their activity as outlined above in our Commission Structure.
There are several ways to refer new members:
- Someone follows a pin you shared on an external site (like Facebook) to the Pincredibles website and joins
- Someone follows one of your custom page referral URLs* to the Pincredibles site and joins
- Someone enters your Pincredibles User ID or e-mail address in the sign up form when joining
*Note that when you are signed in all shareable pages have links near the top that allow you to share the page in a way that embeds your referral link. That means you get credit for anyone who follows links in your shared pages and joins. You can share via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail. You can also click a button to reveal your personal referral URL to the Pincredibles page you're viewing, then post that URL or even add it to your e-mail signature. Please be sure to see our Terms of Service for important promotion requirements and restrictions.
