Introducing Search Tokens

Search Token

Search Tokens ($T) is our new micropayment system. $T are required for services under $5.00.

Each $T worth $0.01. When you purchase $T in bulk, you are awarded bonus tokens which are included in the total amount of $T your purchase. The more $T you purchase, the more bonus tokens you receive lowering the cost per $T.

Using $T allows Searchbug to keep costs down by minimizing transaction fees for credit cards, issue store credit in the form of $T quickly, as well as the ability to offer promotions.

Search Tokens Basics

  1. Search Tokens ($T) give you the ability to purchase Searchbug services that cost less than $5.00. The credit card companies charge high processing fees that make it prohibitive for us to sell services for less, so we created the $T.
  2. Each new account will receive 500 $T free of charge just for setting up and verifying your account. Accounts with invalid email, phone number, or data we are unable to validate will not receive $T nor will they be able to use Searchbug.
  3. When you purchase the $10 minimum in Search Tokens, the equivalent value is 1 cent. When purchasing $T in bulk, you are awarded Bonus $T making the average cost per $T less than $0.01 thereby facilitating discounts on services. For example; You are given 500 in free Search Tokens or $T for signing up and validating your account. It's like getting $5 in free searches.
    • If a search costs 200 $T, and you purchased 10,000 $T for $100 and received 1,500 as a bonus, the 200 $T spent on the search would equate to $1.74, thereby giving you a 13% discount on that search.
    • If you purchased $1,000 in tokens that same 200 $T search would equate to $1.42, giving you a 29% discount.
  4. Searchbug reserves the right to create special payment rules for selected users, business accounts, and restricted access users if applicable.
  5. New users will get 500 free $T as a Free Trial and may have limited use of Searchbug until such time as their account is verified by an account specialist or support agent. Once the free trial ends, users must purchase $T to purchase services under $5.00

Search Tokens stay active as long as you do

$Ts don't expire as long as you remain an active user. An active user is defined as anyone who has logged on to the Searchbug site within the last year (defined as 365 consecutive days). If a year passes and you do not log on, three attempts will be made to contact you by email after 365 days of inactivity. If at that time you cannot be reached and do not log in to your account, Searchbug reserves the right to expire $T.

Search Tokens are non-refundable

$Ts are considered a purchase and bonus $T are issued at no charge, neither of which can be redeemed for cash back. $Ts are not legal tender and have no value other than exchanging them for services on Bonus $Ts are not tracked separately and are combined with purchases. All $T sales are final. If you close your account with a $T balance, any unused Tokens (purchased or Bonus) will be lost. Any violation of the T&C will cause immediate termination of your account resulting in lost $T.

Do I need Search Tokens ($T) to use Searchbug?

You only need to purchase $T, if you plan to use services that cost less than $5.00. Due to the rising cost of accepting credit cards, we are unable to keep prices low (under $5) for certain searches without $T. Since credit card fees increase the costs of low-cost services we decided to create $T in order to keep costs down and not raise prices.

Search Tokens are not required and cannot be used to pay for API, Batch and Investigator service.
