How To Earn And Use Cash Credits At Wealthy Affiliate

On this page, I will discuss the Wealthy Affiliate credit system and the impact it has on my online success.
So let’s see without further due, how to earn and use cash credits at Wealthy Affiliate.

First of all, you will find three kinds of credits within the credit dashboard:
1. Community credits
2. Cash credits
3. Affiliate credits



Community Credits

The single most important thing to know when it comes to building online business success is to gain the search engine’s love.  As I explain HERE the process of making money online, to start making money you need to have your audience, and a good ranking in Google and other search engines.

To get that successful ranking, you need to gain Google’s trust and one of the best ways to do that is to have visitors on your website. But how on Earth can you make someone visit your site before it’s even ranked on Google?

Kyle and Carson from the Wealthy Affiliate made a great system which helps in that a lot. That’s paying forward comments and a feedback platform, where you get to read other members’ posts and comment on them, and you have guaranteed comments back on your site.



Each comment/feedback you submit on someone’s page gets you 1 community credit.
To request a comment/feedback on your website, you need 2 credits.
So, to get 1 comment/feedback, you need to give 2. That’s why is called the pay it forward system and it works very well.

Community credits you can use only within this SiteRubix platform. They do not carry any cash value.


Cash Credits

The Wealthy Affiliate platform has Bootcamp training, written tutorials, video training sessions online. It is based on the principle of learn and earn which makes you earn an income while studying the topic. It is a very well designed system and here is how it works:
1. Follow the training
2. Share your experience and knowledge
3. The system pays you back in credits
4. You can cash out your credits and earn income or use them for making some more search engines love

Note that this is just one of the beautiful features Wealthy Affiliate has and this is one of the ways you can make money with Wealthy Affiliate.

1 credit = 0.50$


How to earn cash credits?

1. Create a training or tutorial within the community – After three months of being a premium member, everyone is allowed to create training for the members which explains how to manage some of the tools, or how to build something on the website, or how to use the WordPress. It can be anything related to online marketing or motivation.

2. Domain registration – When your referrals purchase a domain through the Wealthy Affiliate, you earn credits as well.


3. Buy cash credits – 1 credit = 0.50$ (you can buy as many as you want)


How to use cash credits?

  1. You can use them to purchase a new domain within the Wealthy Affiliate (the price is better than anywhere else, and it includes all the other features you need with your domain name: safety and security, antispam program, site backup, 24/7 support, live support)



2. Request comments and feedback – You remember that to get some Google love you need to have visitors on your website? And you remember from the previous chapter how you can get those? Well, here is the fun part.

You can simply save your time by using your cash credits in the SiteRubix platform for the Comments/Feedback request instead of paying forward by commenting on other posts.


3. Cash them out! 2 credits = 1$ – you need to have at least 20 credits for cashing out.

Affiliate credits

Whenever you refer others to Wealthy Affiliate; you earn those Affiliate credits.
One referral = 2 credits = 1$
You can use those on the Comments/Feedback request and for domain purchase.
To cash them out, you have to have at least 40 affiliate credits.





Here is a small part of my credit breakdown at the very beginning of my career at Wealthy Affiliate. That means what I earned in the first 3 months of my training:

40 cash credits = $20 – earned by creating tutorials within the platform
10 cash credits = $5 – earned by referring Wealthy Affiliate
2 cash credits = $1 – earned on my referral’s domain registration

  3. Hey Sunny, it’s great that you took this initiative to discuss the difference between these three credits, most of us were confused, before reading your article, on how each one operates and the difference between them. The best part was the fact you shared a video that explained more about it which solidified our understanding on the these types of credits.

  4. Hi Sunny,

    I am happy to learn about the cash credit system through your post. I thought that at Wealthy Affiliate you could only learn about affiliate marketing. But I didn’t know that you could also earn cash and other forms of credit. So, hypothetically one could join Wealthy Affiliate and pay for monthly fees with the cash earned in the same platform.

  5. Hello Sunny, 

    It feels so good learning more about wealthy affiliate and so many of us who have been looking from afar can now have some clarity about the platform and it feels so good. I really didn’t know one can make cash credits at wealthy affiliate and swing how you can make use of it is very good. Thanks for sharing 

  6. Hello,thank you for sharing this article centred on How To Earn And Use Cash Credits At Wealthy Affiliate. I have been on wealthy Affiliate for a while, thank you for sharing this article. I now have much understanding on how to earn and use cash credit. This article would be helpful to those who just joined this platform. I would like to share this post with friends that are new to this platform

  7. Thank you Sunny,  For a great article on the Credit system in WA. I was not aware that it had so many levels. I only saw the comments aspect. I think I must take the time to go through Kyles training once more. I really need to learn the other aspects. 

    Thank you again for yet another great article.


  8. Thanks for sharing this information on Wealthy Affiliate credits.  

    Of course you have to be a member of Wealthy Affiliate before you can earn them.  So if anyone is not yet a member then I recommend that they get straight over, as they are really missing out on the benefits of this world leading platform.

    The great thing is that you earn these credits very easily.  As you point out, getting reviews are an essential element for Google to rank your website.  So giving 2 reviews to get 1 review is a very good option, as all it costs is just a few minutes work.

  9. Hi Sunny, 

    You have inspired an idea with this post. I have always used credits as I earned them. I think it might be a good way to keep myself motivated and involved but I had no idea you could buy credits and use them to request comments/feedback. 

    I do like the pay-it-forward mentality though. The community is one of my favorite parts of WA! Everyone working together and helping each other out is how the world should work!

    I am going to take the information you have provided and see if I can get some of that Google love you talk about! 



  10. The Wealthy Affiliate platform has so much more to offer than just training, and earning cash credits is another great way of adding value to the platform. I have been using the cash credit system of offering comments, to earn credits, and then use it again, for domain renewal. 

    I am currently working towards earning enough credits to pay for my membership renewal, which really shows how beneficial the paying forward system can be.

  11. Helpful tips on how to earn credits and how to used them.

    Very useful on how Wealthy Affiliate helps, the fact that this is an easy way how to benefit and earn from the platform.

    I like the cool and amazing way Wealthy Affiliate helps its members achieve their success through this strategy of earning credits.

    Thank you for presenting and explaining this on your post.

  12. Thank you so much for yet again, another great article!!  I have been waiting to start earning cash credits with Wealth Affiliate.  I think this is a good way to motivate the community to help one another out!  This system is great because it pays just to help others out and I would use that money to pay my monthly fees!

  13. I think that what Kyle and Carson have done here is super amazing!

    Just the community credits alone have been such a great way to build up some organic traffic right out the gate.

    I think that it is so cool that you have achieved the training level! I didn’t realize that that was even really an option. And it isn’t really something that I was even really wanting to aim for or anything. But knowing that it is an option gives me a lot of motivation to keep on learning!

    As of right now I am just putting a lot of time and effort into writing good copy that converts and I am hoping to see the returns on the back end soon! Thank you for this inspiring article! Not to mention it’s chalked full of great info for anyone looking to create additional streams of income!

  14. Hey Sunny, I have earned some credits but was not 100% sure where they came from. You have given a great explanation of how the credits system works, now I understand.

    I have been focusing more on building my own site out with content but I guess it could be a great way to practise creating some content/training and potentially getting paid for it. Never thought about doing that but it could be an option, thanks.

  15. This site’s explanations and simple techniques really make earning money a no brainer. With the credit system on Wealthy Affiliate and this website’s guidebook you cant go wrong. I really enjoyed reading about gaining Google’s trust and getting the search engine to love your website. Really teaching the importance of understanding and knowing what your audience wants.  

  16. There are definitely plenty of good reasons to take advantage of the cash credits on WA.  Once I get enough from my comments and other work I think I’ll be able to pay for a month of my Premium membership. 😉  It is worth it to take a little extra time from your website and give back the WA community.
