Training Credits Explained

Last Update: January 29, 2017

I just answered a question regarding training credits so I thought I would share the explanation with everyone.

You can get paid for creating training here at Wealthy Affiliate. You need to be a premium member for three months before you are permitted to create training. Your training must be relevant to online marketing and of a high standard.

The Levels

When you create a new training it enters Level 1. It's only after it has progressed all the way through Level 1 and enters Level 2 that it can qualify for approval.

It takes time, engagement, likes, views and comments to get through each level.

The first level of training is worth 10 credits ($5). When your training clicks over into the 2nd level then your training credits for the first level can be approved.

Approval is done manually once or twice a month. You'll get an email when your training credits have been approved.

When your training goes all the way through the 2nd level and enters the 3rd level then you'll get an additional 20 credits ($10). It can take a long time to go through the 2nd level.

Each additional level takes longer to go through and is worth the previous level's credits plus 10 credits. So when your training goes through Level 3 and enters Level 4 then the additional credit earned is 30 credits ($15).

To cash out

You need to go to your Credit Dashboard and move the slider across to cash out.

Payments are made on the 1st of the month following cashing out. So if you have reached the threshold with credits approved and you move the slider across today you'll get a payment on the 1st day of next month.

So if you've been a premium member for over 3 months what are you waiting for? Share your knowledge now.

Whats the process of getting to level 2? is it the number of trainings or engagement from the trainings?

Each training progresses independently according to its own time, engagement, likes, views and comments.
