UPDATES TO THE WEBSITE
There have been some subtle tweaks to the websites lately, so here are the
most important things to note.
THE HIDE BUTTON RETURNS!
After a brief hiatus, the Hide button is available again, so you can hide posts to your
hearts content! If you were happy to have the Report button, don't worry - this is still
available and now resides next to Hide.
As a reminder, content should only be reported if it is spam, inappropriate or abusive. If it
is simply something you don't agree with, it's much easier to just hide it and move on.
RETYPE YOUR PASSWORD
In an effort to make your accounts
more secure and prevent your
points being used without your
knowledge, you'll be asked to enter
your current password whenever
you redeem a reward or update
your login settings.
FIND YOUR REWARDS
Judging from the enquiries that we receive, we thought it might be useful to give a
summary of the different rewards and delivery methods - so that you're not missing
any rewards that have already been sent to you.
DELIVERED STRAIGHT TO YOUR EMAIL INBOX:
If you redeem PayPal, you have to
enter your PayPal email address in
your account details page first.
To be able to receive your PayPal reward, you need to have a registered account with
PayPal. When Toluna has sent your reward payment to your PayPal account, you will
receive an email from PayPal alerting you that the money is available in your account.
Please note that the delivery of your payment can take up to 4-8 weeks.
DELIVERED TO YOUR REWARDS PAGE:
If you redeem Shoppers Stop, Nykaa, Flipkart or Big Bazaar e-gift cards, please check
the Rewards page in your Toluna account. If the redemption has been processed, you
will see the text "Click here for voucher code details:", simply click on it and then you
will see the e-gift card code, pin, and expiry date details.
Please note that the delivery of e-gift cards can take up to 2-4 weeks.
As you know we
encourage open and
for everyone. In
order to make our
ask that you follow
How does this work? when posting
content. In addition,
please be familiar
with the overall Site

system issues, please close the duplicate posts.
When posting Topics, please write at least 10 words in your post to express your opinion as the
Topic creator. Do not copy and plagiarize from other sites.
