If a card posted in Sendcere is shared on social media (Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, etc.), and someone clicks on the link posted in social media and sends the card, whose customer will they become?
If they are not already a SendOutCards customer, the person who shares the card to social media gets the customer, regardless of who originally created or Collected the card on Sendcere.
What happens if my friend clicks on a card that I shared from Sendcere to Facebook?
Your friend will be directed to the Sendcere website, directly to the card location showing what you shared on Facebook.
Will my friend have to create an account to see cards on Sendcere?
No, your friend will be able to browse cards on Sendcere but once they choose an action such as “Favorite”, “Collect” or “Send” on a card, they will be prompted to create an account (Name, Email, User Name and Password). The account will be linked to YOU since you originally shared the card they clicked on to get to Sendcere in the first place!
Will I be notified when I get a new customer through Sendcere so I can follow up with them? Yes, you will receive the same notification that you do for customers now.
Will new Sendcere customers be sent any kind of a welcome email from SendOutCards? If so, will the customer be given my contact information so they can contact me if they have questions or need assistance? Yes, they will receive the same training emails that your current customers get. You can view the emails HERE, which are also located on the Site Map.
Will Sendcere customers have any way of learning about our business opportunity? You will need to introduce them to this, as they will only receive customer-training emails from SendOutCards.
If I share a card in Sendcere and someone else shares it on Facebook, who will be the sponsor of the person who clicks on the card to send it?
If they are not already a SendOutCards customer, the person who shares the card to social media gets the customer, regardless of who originally created the card or Collected it on Sendcere. This open sharing philosophy is similar to that of Pinterest and other social media platforms. The difference being that Pinterest is a collection of everything from recipes to shoes, while Sendcere is solely focused on greeting cards, making it simple for users to visually locate exactly what they need, when they need it!
What happens to someone who goes directly to www.Sendcere.com who does not already have a SendOutCards Account?
They will be able to browse cards on Sendcere. Once they choose an action such as “Favorite”, “Collect” or “Send” on any card on Sendcere, they will be prompted to create an account (Name, Email, User Name and Password). Since the new customer does not have a Sponsor for them to be tied to, they will be placed in an “Orphan Account” unless a distributor who sent them to Sendcere claims them as their Customer. The revenue from this orphan account will fund the Monthly Manager Bonus Pool so everyone who qualifies for a share will benefit.
How do I “Claim” someone from the Orphan Account?
If someone you’ve been prospecting accidentally ends up in the Orphan Account, you can send an email to Support@SendOutCards.com with CLAIM AN ORPHAN in the subject line. Make sure your name and your ID number, along with their name.
If I paid for the rights to use a copyrighted image in a card, can I share that on Sendcere so others can use the card?
The content on Sendcere is entirely user created. Once it is shared on Sendcere, it is available for free use by anyone. As with all SendOutCards cards, creators should be aware of trademark and copyright infringement and only load content they own or have purchased the rights to such as their own personal photos and artwork. If an image was purchased, the license must be open for anyone to use. If you don’t know if you own the rights to the image then you shouldn’t assume you do. Using an image copied from the internet does not necessarily grant you the rights to use the image. The person who creates the card is responsible for its content.
How can I tell if an image is copyrighted?
Here are some articles on copyrights and the internet:
Is someone from the SendOutCards staff patrolling to ensure that objectionable material is not posted in Sendcere?
Yes, and you can help report cards too. There is a flag containing a drop down menu on the bottom right corner once you click on a card. Click the drop down menu and select why you find it objectionable and would like to report the card. These reports will be reviewed and if determined objectionable, the card will be removed from Sendcere.
Whose cards show in the “My Organization” tab?
Any card on Sendcere that has been Favorited by your downline or upline will show in the “My Organization” tab.
Can anyone in the world use Sendcere?
Yes. Anyone in the world can use and send cards from Sendcere.
How does Sendcere work with a Gift Account Walkthrough?
A gift account walkthrough and a new user through Sendcere work completely different. If you want a user to see a gift account walkthrough you will need to direct them to your marketing page to view the videos. If the person sends a card through Sendcere they will not see anything related to the gift account walkthrough.
Why isn’t Instagram a sharing option?
The reason you cannot share a card from Sendcere to Instagram is because there is not a way to add a link to direct a consumer back to Sendcere and you as their sponsor. In other words, if we allowed posts from Sendcere to Instagram your followers would only see an image of the card with no way to access it.
