The award system will be called PAID (Participation Awards & Incentive Drive) and will involve the platform giving its members points which can either be withdrawn as cash or used on the site to make a repayment on a loan, lend to other members or buy a membership - in the scheme one point will equal 10 pence. According to Madiston this loyalty scheme will boost "the interest received by lenders by a further 1.5 per cent and reduce borrowers‘ interest cost by 1 per cent."
Members will earn points by engaging with the platform, with rewards for registering, recommending a new user, voting on a poll and posting on the forum - these could earn anything between two and 20 points depending on the activity. This increases to 50 points for members who have a testimonial, video or article published, or who accurately report a software bug on the site. For lending and borrowing, points awarded are worth one percent of the amount lent or borrowed.
The company is also introducing a special offer for lenders to kickstart its loyalty scheme. The first 100 lenders who lend more than £500 won’t pay any lending fees for the year ending 31 March 2015.
