Referrals assigned to your account are billed to your credit card on file on a rolling 7 day schedule from the time you activated your referrals in your account. Note: If your balance reaches $100 we will charge your credit card before the end of the 7 day billing cycle.
Example of how it works, if you activated your referrals on Monday?
Monday two new referrals are assigned to you.
Referral 1: costs $10
You attempt to contact this project owner within 24 hours of receiving the referral, wait 5 days for them to respond and have no luck speaking with them, you are eligible to dispute this referral.
Referral 2: costs $5 You contact the project owner and speak with them.
Saturday you are working Referral 2 and you submit a dispute for Referral 1.
The following Monday your credit card on file is charged $5 for Referral 2 which was valid and you're protected by the Contact Guarantee for Referral 1 and owe nothing for this referral.
If you have a PrePay Deposit Membership you will deposit funds into your account in advance to pay for valid referrals. When your balance reaches $0.00 your account will automatically replenish your referral deposit to the amount set in your account.
