How can I get coins?
Joining bonus: When you join teacheron.com as a tutor or a student, you are given free coins as a joining bonus. At the time of writing (18 Oct 2016), the bonus is 1000 coins. This will change in the future and will depend on the country you are joining from.
Help us improve: You can help us to become better by giving feedback about bugs, improvements, or even ideas. If your feedback is helpful, you can get anywhere from 50 to 5000 coins or even more according to the value provided.
Blog: If your content is good and worth publishing, we reward you with coins depending on the quality of the content. As a sweet side effect, your blog post will also link to your profile which is not only better for authority among students but helps your google rankings as well.
However, to avoid useless posts and spam, and advertisements, we also deduct coins for bad quality.
Buy: You can also buy coins if you are low on the balance. Current price(18 Oct 2016) for 500 coins is INR 500.
Donate: Just send us the receipt after donating to our GiveIndi.org page. We give 500 coins for every 1000 INR donated. Note: Money goes to GiveIndia.org. We don't get the money, charity does.
