Killi Paycheck

  • What is the Killi Paycheck?

    Killi Paycheck is a guaranteed way to earn passive weekly cash just for sharing your data – just join our Profile, Shopping, and Browsing Rewards. The more you share, the more you earn, anywhere from $1-3 per month (paid weekly). Then, set it and forget it, and watch the Killi ca$h roll in every Friday at 5PM EST.

  • What are the three tiers of Killi Paycheck?

    Intermediate: Enroll in any ONE (1) Killi Reward and earn guaranteed $1/month (25 cents/week)

    Example: Be enrolled in Profile OR Shopping OR Browsing Rewards

    Pro: Enroll in any TWO (2) Killi Rewards and earn guaranteed $2/month (50 cents/week)

    Example:

    • Profile AND Shopping, OR
    • Profile AND Browsing, OR
    • Shopping AND Browsing

    Elite: Enroll in ALL THREE (3) Killi Rewards and earn guaranteed $3/month (75 cents/week)

    Example: Profile AND Shopping AND Browsing

     

  • What rewards are included in Killi Paycheck?

    Profile, Shopping, and Browsing Rewards are included in Paycheck. Location Rewards are not included as they are Android only.

  • Are Location Rewards part of Killi Paycheck?

    As Location Rewards are Android only, they are separate from the Killi Paycheck and will continue being paid out on a weekly basis.

  • How do I earn the maximum amount of money with Killi Paycheck?

    To earn the maximum amount of money with Killi Paycheck, sign up for the Elite Tier by joining all three (3) Killi Rewards: Profile, Shopping, and Browsing.

  • When will I get paid for my Killi Paycheck?

    Killi Paycheck is paid out on a weekly basis, Fridays at 5pm EST. Your monthly earning amount is divided evenly between the weeks. For example, if you are in the Intermediate tier ($1/month), you will receive 25 cents per week. That’s 5x what we’re paying now!!!

History

  • How do I earn with Killi?

    Can you make money from your data? Absolutely!

    There are currently four ways to earn with Killi: Rewards Programs, surveys, and watching videos (on Android ONLY). We are always working on creating even more ways for you to earn in the near future.

  • How do I earn from videos?

    Video ads. No matter where you browse, chances are, you come across them. But are you earning from them? Probably not. We are changing that (within Killi at least). Simply watch a video ad and earn money. You can watch as many or as little as you want. Exciting! Please note, this is currently only available on Android devices.

  • How do I earn from data sharing?

    When setting up your profile, you can enable data sharing for anything you add. This includes your: date of birth, email address, gender, location, phone number, postal code, and country.

    Change your mind about what you want to share? No problem, you can turn your sharing on or off at any time.

  • How do I earn from surveys?

    You can earn money by completing surveys that help brands understand you better.  Some surveys may ask you screening questions first to ensure you qualify as the right audience for the full survey. This helps ensure you are a good match (which also saves you from irrelevant surveys). This does mean, however, that you won’t qualify for EVERY survey. Don’t worry, there are always plenty!

  • How long do surveys take?

    The length of the survey varies. Some surveys take a couple minutes, while others take a bit longer. It’s totally up to you when it comes to how long you want to spend in the app. A few minutes can earn you some cash!

     

  • How much money can I make with Killi?

    You are likely to make a few bucks a month, but the world is your oyster! The more active you are on Killi, the more you earn. The amount you earn is also contingent on the number of surveys you qualify for, the types of surveys, the Rewards Programs you opt-in for, and the info you choose to share.

    We get that a few dollars here and there may not seem like much today, but stick with it and you can grow it further over time. Plus, who doesn’t want some extra money every month? Your next coffee run could be on us 😉

    While earning from your data may never replace your job or side hustle, it’s still a nice feeling having money on the table.

  • How can I earn more?

    We are working hard behind the scenes to grow your earning potential every month. The more users and companies that join Killi, the more your earnings will increase!

    Passive ways to earn with Killi include Profile Rewards, Shopping Rewards, and Location Rewards! If you’re itching for more to do in the app, surveys are an active way for you to keep earning!

     

  • How do I withdraw money?

    Currently, there are two ways to withdraw money: cash via Paypal or gift card via Amazon. We’re working on creating even more ways for you to withdraw money in the near future.

    Note: you need to verify your email in order to redeem as this is where your money notifications go. The verified email MUST be associated with your Paypal and/or Amazon account in order to successfully redeem your funds. You will also need to reach the minimum withdrawal amount which is set respectively by Paypal and Amazon.

    Ready to withdraw?

    Go to the ‘Wallet’ section in the app
    Click ‘Redeem’
    Pick your method on redemption: cash via Paypal or gift card via Amazon
    Proceed with redeeming

  • Can I get my money in different currencies?

    Your money will be given to you in your home currency. We currently service Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore, so currency will given in the respective country you reside in (based on where we are available). As we expand, we will have more currency options available!

  • Is there a cost for using Killi?

    Killi is free of charge to the consumer but we take a small transaction fee to write the contracts, pay for transactions on the blockchain and staff the team. The percentage we currently take is 50/50, but we intend to increase the percentage going to consumers over time.

Refer A Friend

  • How does Killi’s Refer-a-Friend program work?

    Everything is more fun with friends, which is why we revamped our Refer-A-Friend (RAF) program! For each new friend you refer that joins Killi, you will receive a $1 signup bonus PLUS 10% of their Killi  Paycheck earnings.

    For example, you refer 4 friends who all join Killi at the Elite Tier ($3/month). Collectively, they are earning $12 total per month (4 friends x $3/month). In total, you’ll receive $1.20 per month thereafter (10% of $12) AND a one-time $4 referral bonus just because YOU were the one that brought them into Killi! RAF Earnings are on top of your Killi Paycheck earnings so the earning possibilities are practically endless!

    PS. You can find your custom referral code in the Refer-A-Friend section of your account. Get sharing! 

  • What do my friends have to do after I refer them?

    Your friend will need to create a Killi account and validate their email.

  • Is there a limit to how much I can earn from each friend?

    You can earn a maximum of 30 cents per friend per month. 

  • Is there a limit to how many friends I can refer to Killi?

    Nope! The limit does not exist (hehe). You can earn 10% from ALL the friends you bring to Killi – the higher their Paycheck tier, the more you make. Being a good friend has its rewards!

  • How do I know when my friends have successfully signed up?

    Once your friend signs up and completes their profile, you will automatically receive the money in your Killi wallet. You will also be able to see this in the “Earn & Redeem” screen.

Profile Rewards

  • What are Profile Rewards?

    The Profile Bonus gives you an opportunity to earn money passively on a WEEKLY basis. What does this mean exactly? You can earn some extra cha-ching without having to lift a finger. Learn all about our Profile Bonus here!

Shopping Rewards

  • What are Shopping Rewards?

    Shopping Rewards allow you to passively make money just from your everyday shopping – crazy right? Through our Shopping Rewards Program, your shopping transactions (via the active debit/credit card you connect), can earn you extra money on a WEEKLY basis plus help brands in their efforts to better cater to individuals like you!

  • How does the Shopping Rewards Program work?

    Like many ways to earn money, earning via Shopping Rewards is simple! So, how does it work?

    1. Connect your credit card or banking card (checking account)
    2. Verify your info, make sure it’s all correct
    3. Continue to shop as you normally would

    Told you, easy peasy! You will earn from the shopping transactions you make – think of a cashback credit card! Oh also, we will NEVER charge your card. EVER. We are giving you money, not the other way around!

  • How do I qualify for Shopping Rewards?

    As long as you possess a credit card or checking account, you qualify! There is no prerequisite or amount you have to continuously spend in order to qualify and stay in the program. A card is all you need!

  • It won’t let me link my account, why not?
  • How is the amount I receive calculated?

    Ah, math. Maybe not everyones favourite subject, but we are going to go ahead and use some here. We believe in profit sharing hence why we decided not to keep everything for ourselves. 50% goes to the Killi users and 50% goes to us!

  • Why does Killi keep 50% of the profits?

    Our consumers are our #1 priority and in order to keep improving Killi for our users, we need to pay our wonderful team to do so. Plus, you know, we have bills to pay. We are human too!

Privacy & Protection

  • What is personal data?

    Personal data is anything that can be used to identify who you are (so people know you aren’t a robot). This includes: name, date of birth, email, phone, etc.

  • What is consumer data?

    Consumer data is generated from your day-to-day actions and your behavior as a consumer. This data typically comes from your devices (mainly mobile devices) which have great tracking abilities. Apps and websites that are open on your phone track your usage, including browsing habits, frequently visited locations, where you eat, shop and entertain, and a whole lot more. Between location service and browsing habits, a consumer profile is formed. As you continue to have an active presence online, this data is always increasing. What’s that mean? It’s unlimited.

  • What happens with all this data?

    The data you input is what you give up for free every time you check off the “I’ve read and agreed to the privacy policy” box to access free sites and apps. If you don’t want to read through the entire policy, just know this is typically what it includes.

    This type of data is hugely valuable to companies who want to understand what interests you because they want to deliver, well, something you will be interested in! In a way, this is good because the online ads you see are more relevant to what you actually like.

    Currently, the data collected from you is sold in many marketplaces for profit without a cent going to your name (yikes). This status quo is what Killi is breaking.

  • Who controls my data?

    Simple – you!

    You and only you control the data you share and transact on Killi. If you choose to stop sharing something, it will no longer be available for buying. If you delete the app, all profile data and history will be deleted (except for surveys you were paid for).

  • How is my data protected?

    The security of your data is the most important thing to us. We work to ensure compliance with applicable regulations and laws.

    In terms of your physical account, you can only access it via a password you create. Without this password your account cannot be accessed. We’re working tirelessly to secure your data as technologies change at dizzying speeds. Seriously, our relationship with sleep is not a stable one!

  • How is my money protected?

    Your phone is your secure wallet. Your money cannot be stolen or hacked because it belongs to you (we have a way of ensuring your money is safe. It’s no secret, just really cool tech!).

  • What happens after my data is purchased?

    The data purchased stays between you and the company purchasing it. After the purchase, a contract between you and the seller is logged. The transaction then goes to your ‘Wallet History’ page and ta-da, you just made money! The company is the ONLY receiver of this data, hence why a contract is formed.

  • What if I don’t want to share certain data anymore?

    Don’t want to share your email anymore? Perhaps your date of birth is something you decided you want to keep to yourself? Not a problem! You can opt in and out of sharing your personal data whenever you want to. This means you don’t have to commit 100% to sharing all of your personal data.

  • What is Killi’s privacy policy?

    You can find Killi’s privacy policy here. We encourage you to read through it all.

  • What are Killi’s terms and conditions?

    You can find Killi’s terms and conditions here. We encourage you to read through it all.

Account Management

  • How do I log out of my account?

    In the navigation, click “Identity”. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and you’ll see “Log out of my account.”

  • Why am I asked to answer a bunch of questions about myself?

    Simple – the more we know about you, the better we can make your experience! Answering these questions allows us to better funnel RELEVANT surveys and offers for you. While you may notice less surveys, your chances of qualifying will increase.

    In the past, users had trouble qualifying for surveys which in turn meant not making money. Yeah, that didn’t fly with us. The take survey helps us personalize your experience so you get content that is ACTUALLY meant for you. No more spending all your time trying to qualify!

  • I had a balance and now it’s gone, where is it?

    After creating a password, you may notice your account revert to 0. No worries, your earnings aren’t gone forever, we just need to further verify you are in fact YOU! If your balance is missing, you will see a box at the top asking you to link your phone number. Simply enter the phone number associated with your Killi account and your balance will appear. Still don’t see it? Refresh the page (pull down the screen).

  • Why do I need a password to login to my Killi account now?

    We see Killi as a lot more than a mobile app, so we have expanded to the web. Previously, you only required your phone number to log in for Killi. While this is fine and dandy for mobile, it won’t work for Killi on a web browser. The password login will allow you to log into your Killi account from whatever device you would like! How else can a password help? In the past, when you switched to a new device or did a factory reset, your account and any balance would not transfer over. The password login eliminates this issue. If you get a new device, or factory reset your current device, your account and the balance will remain intact.

  • Why was I kicked out of my Killi account when I opened the app?

    Did you open your Killi app only to be greeted with a login screen? Don’t worry, your account isn’t gone! Due to the shift to a password-based login system, we need every user to create a password and login with it. If you are an existing user, you would select ‘Log into your Killi account’ and follow the instructions from there!

  • Why do I have to wait 30 days to redeem my funds?

    Waiting. It sucks. We know. So why do we make you wait 30 days? This gives us enough time to verify that you are in fact a human and utilizing the app appropriately. While waiting 30 days may seem difficult, imagine how great it’s going to be when you redeem ALL the money you’ve earned in your first month!

  • Why do I need to verify my email?

    Verifying your email is neccessary for a few reasons. For one, including your email in your profile increases the number of surveys and offers you get (which means more cha-ching). Verifying your email is required when redeeming your funds. In order to ACTUALLY receive your funds, your email MUST be verified. If it’s not, we don’t have a way of sending you your well deserved earnings.

  • How do I change my email address?

    Go to your identity page, click on your current email, enter your new one, and verify it. Voila, how simple?

    Make sure you complete the verification process in order to successfully complete the email change.

  • I got a new phone, will my funds transfer over?

    If you recently got a new device or had to factory reset your current device, you will NOT lose your account and funds. Simply log into your Killi account with your password and email and your funds and info will pop up. If you do not see your funds or account, you may be asked to verify your phone number to retreive your account info. If you experience issues, please feel free to reach out to datarevolution@killi.io for help!

  • If I delete the app, where does my data go?

    As much as we love data, we aren’t data hoarders! When you delete the app, the data simply goes in the garbage (well, a metaphorical garbage). When you delete the application, all your data is also deleted from it.

    Note: This deletion is NOT reversible.

General

  • What countries does Killi support?

    Currently, we support the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. We are looking to expand to a plethora of other places in the near future. Stay tuned!

  • I’m not qualifying for surveys/offers? How can I improve my ability to qualify?

    Not qualifying for surveys is a bummer and after receiving multiple messages from our users over concerns they weren’t qualifying, we had to take action.

    There is a short questionnaire of basic questions which will help you qualify for surveys/offers. This allows us to filter irrelevant surveys and only show the ones that are tailored to you.

  • Do I have to complete every question on my profile?

    In order to earn your one time $1 reward and to receive surveys/offers that are best suited to you, you must fully complete your profile. However, don’t fear, we won’t take up too much of your time. It takes approx. 5 minutes to complete.

  • How can I access Killi on the web?

    Killi web can be accessed on any device with an internet browser (desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile device). To access Killi web, click here!

  • Will my information transfer over from the app when I use Killi on web?

    Of course! Don’t worry about having to pick between the app and web – we won’t make you make that tough choice! You can log in and use either or. Any balance and activity from the app will also be shown on Killi web.

  • How do I login into Killi web?

    Logging into Killi web is the same as logging in via the app. Just input your email or phone number along with your password and VOILA, you’re in!

  • What is Killi?

    In its current form, Killi is a mobile consumer app that allows users to get paid for their data while simultaneously protecting it. Killi contains two crucial functions – an open marketplace (where personal and consumer data is exchanged for money) and a secured locker (where your data and money are protected).

    The ultimate vision of Killi is to empower users to take back 100% control of their consumer data so that companies who want access must pay Killi users for their data instead of buying it from elsewhere that doesn’t profit users. While the app is Step 1, we will be expanding into other areas where your data is leaking.

    TL;DR – Killi helps keep your data safe and puts money in your pocket. How’s that for a win-win?

  • Is Killi safe?

    100%! Your data is completely safe with Killi. Your information is kept on your device and cannot be accessed by external sources. When you choose to share and sell your data, the transaction is done directly between you and the company.

  • What countries does Killi support?

    Currently, we support the US, Canada, Singapore,  New Zealand, and Australia. We are looking to expand to a plethora of other places in the near future. Stay tuned!

  • Does your app work in both Android and iOS?

    Yes. Our app is in both the Apple App Store and Google Play store. You can get it right here!

  • Who do I contact for Customer Support?

    Have an issue, concern, or question? You can reach out to Customer Support at datarevolution@killi.io or message us from the chat on the bottom right corner of your screen!

  • How can I keep up to date with Killi?

    We are always on top of the latest news and trends when it comes to data protection and privacy. You can find us on Facebook, LinkedInTwitter, and Instagram!
