Socin Affiliate Program

Our affiliate program is probably the best in the world. We say it is the best because of three reasons;

  1. Both the member and the people the member invites do not pay anything
  2. We offer lifetime commission – every time the person you invite takes a loan you get paid
  3. You get 10% of all the loan sourcing fees that we charge

In addition, if you join and promote the program today, you will not only make money regularly but, you will also be helping other people achieve their goals. It is also very easy to promote the program because the people who join do not have to pay anything or take a loan immediately for you to be paid. The system connects these new members to you so that you can earn commission even if the member takes a loan years later.

Socin Insurance

We offer optional insurance coverage for loans where both parties (borrower and lender) prefer such coverage. The insurance coverage available allows people in different geographical locations to enter into loan agreements safely. We provide covers of up to $22,800 to new members. The insurance works be multiplying a small amount paid by the borrower by a specified number to arrive at the total amount to be compensated to the lender in case the borrower fails to honor the loan agreement.

Calculating insurance Cover

If a borrower wants his/her requests covered by insurance immediately, he/she can do so by paying an amount of money that will be set as insurance for his/her account. We multiply the amount paid by 24 to arrive at the total insurance cover the borrower has.  New members can pay up to $950 generating a total  coverage worth $22,800

Example: If the borrower pays $50, the insurance amount shown on his/her account will be $1,200.

It is up to the borrower to decide whether to purchase insurance or not. Visit the Finances section to set insurance

Socin Trust Credits

We provide a unique system that converts ordinary actions by borrowers on the website to positive or negative credits that can be used by lenders when making decisions whether to fund loans or not. Actions which earn credits range from the simplest such as logging in, to the more serious ones such as paying insurance or verifying identity. Members are notified every time they earn or lose credits. You can learn all about trust credits here.
