More Changes to EntreCard

Take note of all this changes people especially the one where theres is to be no more sale of EC Credits :

In order to continue operating in the long-term, Entrecard needs make some significant changes. These are summarized below:

  1. Buy credits for less: Entrecard is now selling 1,000 credits for $6.00.
  2. More pricing increments: Instead of prices doubling every time, there are now a few more steps. The new price points can be found on the Advertising page in the wiki.
  3. Members are not allowed to sell credits: This goes for ebay sales, posts in the Marketing forum, and posts on other forums. If you have references on your site to the sale of credits, please remove them immediately, as it is now against our terms.
  4. Credit transfer limits: Members are allowed to make a maximum of 14 credit transfers a week, up to a maximum of 1,000 credits, whichever comes first. This means you can still run contests where you give credits away for free, and under 1k per week. Note: This does not affect linked blogs, you can transfer unlimited credits between linked blogs.
  5. Transfer tax: From now on, all transfers, including transfers made with our new payments API, will be taxed at a rate of 12.5%. The taxed credits will be sold to members (see #1).
  6. Blogs cannot be unlinked: Once you link a blog, it’s there for good unless you ask us to delete the blog from your account. This prevents linking/unlinking to get around the credit transfer limits, and it also stops you losing access to a blog if you unlink it in error, which happens a lot.
  7. No more coupons: You are no longer allowed to send coupons.
  8. Shop closed: Except for Entrecard upgrades (Featured Status, Fast Pass) the Entrecard Shop is now offline until further notice. Please do not request a seller token until the shop returns. When it comes back, it will be bigger and better. We’ll communicate more details nearer the time.



  1. Hi LJ...checking in on Tuesday morning, I rarely visit you here so I thought I would drop off an EC or two and wish you Happy Hari Raya!

    Entrecard is just a mess. Yesterday the system kept telling me I had already dropped on blogs if I had already dropped for one of my other blogs. Today that seems to be back in order but the pricing increments are confusing. Oh well, you get what you pay for, I guess.


  2. Still early and I'm already annoyed with EntreCard. You know those annoying people who think the rules don't apply to them? Apparently I am one of them. I had done a bit of EC dropping this morning and went to transfer 100 EC from one of my linked blogs to another...and they charged me 12 EC "tax" for the transfer. I thought it only applied to transfers to Other People's Blogs. Ridiculous! Now I have to think before I drop, which is hard in the morning.


  3. Hi Roxy!
    Thank for dropping here at my money blog :) and Thank you so much for the Raya wish!! Yeah it's Raya!!!

    I was not dropping yesterday as much coz you know me and Emila was on a Mariuca comment war path...but i was dropping today on the same blogs using different cards and it was ok.. i guess must have been a glitch last night for you??

    Hmm.. you were charged for linked blogs.. that's just crazy coz number four clearly states otherwise.. perhaps a tantrum email is in order??


Thank you for your comments and enjoy your stay :-)
