Instead of simply keeping all of the commission paid to us, we share it with our Contributor members in the form of cash rewards. At launch justlooking will be sharing at least 50% of profits directly with Contributor members, and it is hoped that this percentage will be increased as the site grows. Profit shares are allocated on a monthly basis, based on the Reputation Points earned by members in that month.
We do this to help maintain the quality of content, ensure that the best deals are found, encourage full participation and ultimately provide the best community for sharing and finding deals. As users vote on deals, this keeps the site unbiased while rewarding members for finding great deals.
All members are eligible to become Contributor members. See the pages on Types of Member and Becoming a Contributor Member.
At the end of each month, justlooking makes an estimate of profits for the month, and from this creates a rewards pool. The rewards pool will be at least 50% of estimated profits for that month.
Profits are a function of commission revenues generated by justlooking, operating costs and any prior period adjustments. The reason each month’s figure is an “estimate” is that commission pay-outs from merchants are typically significantly lagged and subject to adjustments (e.g. for cancelled sales, returned items, etc). Any differences between estimates and final out-turn will be adjusted for in subsequent periods.
Once the reward pool is calculated, this is compared against all Reputation Points awarded to profit sharing members in that month, and a monetary value per Reputation Point is calculated. Monetary rewards are then credited to each profit sharing members’ rewards account for that month, based on their monthly Reputation Point earnings and the value per Point.
Please note that during the Beta Testing period, profit sharing will not be enabled. However the Reputation Points earned by members will allow them to qualify as Contributor Members for when the site formally launches.
Members can request a payout from their Reward account at any time, subject to their account being in credit for at least £20. At present all payouts are made via PayPal or Bitcoin, but it is expected that payout methods will be expanded over time. If there is a specific payment method you would like us to add, please post this in the Forum.
At this stage payouts take 3 business days to process, but it is planned to fully automate the payout process once the system is stable, which will significantly reduce processing time.
Welcome! In preparation for full launch from September we need your help testing and calibrating justlooking. If you see any gremlins, areas we can improve upon or would like to be part of justlooking please let us know.
During this period profit sharing will not be in operation. However, all other aspects of the site will be fully working. This means you will be able to find, share, vote and discuss great deals and also generate reputation points to qualify as a contributor.
From September 50% of profits will be shared with contributors and distributed based on community activity and popularity of deals posted.
