How do I earn credits?

"How do I earn credits?"

You will earn Coop credits by advertising your Coop link in manual traffic exchanges and/or viral mailers. You can find your Coop link on the member home page, or on the "My Coop Link" page under the Advertising menu. Please note that your Coop link is different from the promotional material listed under the Promote menu.

Free members earn 0.5 credits for each time they display their Coop link, and Upgraded members earn 1 credit for each time it is displayed.

Your Coop link has to show for at least 3 seconds for you to earn credits. But if your website comes up in another person's Coop link that is advertised in a source with a timer that is less than 3 seconds, you don't lose any credit for displaying your website.
