As of today we are enabling Scaled Eaves Missions for everyone and we are making them the default type of Mission on Empire Avenue. Eaves Payout (“Legacy”) remains and can be used by selecting it in the type of Reward.
To access: in Mission Reward Type, choose “Eaves Payout (Scaled)” (now the default) when creating a Mission, choose a Eaves Budget, a Minimum Reward and a Maximum Reward.
Eaves Payout (Scaled) Rewards are different from Eaves Payout (Legacy) in that we will payout the reward based on what you select for Minimum and Maximum Reward when creating the Mission. The actual Payout amount will be based on the Completer’s Network Scores.
For example, if an individual has high Network Scores then they will get a higher payout. Unlike “Eaves Payout (Legacy)” and similar to almost every advertising system out there, the Mission Creator will be setting a “budget” of Eaves from which to payout. We will then display what the appropriate reward is and payout from that budget accordingly. In these Missions the Reward is definitely in the eye of the beholder.
Specific Q & A
Q. How do Commissions work with Eaves Payout (Scaled)?
We calculate the commission based on the Reward paid out. For example: For a Platinum account holder, your Eaves Mission Commission is 50%. If someone claims your Mission and is paid 1000e, we will deduct 1500e from the Mission Budget (the Reward of 1000e + 500e commission at 50%).
Q. What are the Rewards Commission amounts for this Reward Type?
For the new Reward Type Standard accounts will be charged 80% Eaves Rewards commission, Premium accounts will be charged the following Commissions: Bronze – 75%, Silver – 60%, Gold – 50% and Platinum 25%.
Q. What’s the formula for determining the Reward Payout to an individual?
We won’t reveal the exact math. Suffice it to say that getting 100% of the Reward will mean that you have fairly high scores across the board. We will modify over time.
Q. Are you using my top five scores for the Reward Payout calculation or all my Network Scores?
Yes, at this time we will use the highest five Network Scores to calculate the reward any individual will receive between the minimum and the maximum that you choose for your Mission.
Q. Are you allowing greater rewards than 50,000e?
Yes. in Eaves Payout (Scaled) we will allow up to 65,000e as a Maximum Reward for Standard accounts and Premium Accounts of any level can create Missions up to 100,000e.
The highest Minimum Reward will be 25,000e.
Q. Are you charging for Targeting?
No. We will not charge for specific targeting.
Q. Are you charging for Promotion?
Yes. The only promotion option currently available is Shareholder Mail area as before.
Q. Will you ever pay lower than the Minimum?
Yes. We will pay lower than your chosen Minimum to profiles who we deem as “risky”. These may be automatically or manually determined profiles based on reputation or other crowd-sourced and/or automated means. Keeping a good reputation will be vital for getting good Eaves payouts in this system.
