New: Instagram Stories!

We are excited to announce that influencers are now able to offer Instagram stories!

IG StoriesAs an influencer, you can now visit your Account’s Pricing tab and set the price you would like to charge for Instagram story, and Instagram story with a link. Unlike timed shoutouts, Instagram stories will be required to stay up for full 24 hours, this will be the only duration you can set pricing for.

We will launch stories to all Shoutcart advertisers next week, at this time, we ask all influencers interested in offering stories, to submit pricing.

Thank you,
Shoutcart Team.

Minimum shoutout price increase

Dear Shoutcart influencers, we are raising our minimum pricing requirement to $10 per shoutout.

If you currently sell shoutouts under $10, we encourage you to go into your account settings and adjust your hourly pricing to reflect the minimum requirement. If $10 is a stretch for your audience, you are welcome to set $10 pricing for multiple hourly options and drive your customers to purchase longer duration shoutouts, such as 24 hour or permanent options.

Deadline to update pricing is Wednesday Sept 12, 2018 at 11am PST after which we will update everyone under $10 automatically.

As we improve our platform, the $10 minimum will allow us to reduce amount of difficult customers, offer better support to our influencers and grow yours and our business in sustainable ways.

Kind regards,
Shoutcart Team

Publish button changes

Dear Shoutcart Influencers, we changed the way our publish button works.

Your publish button will have to be pressed within 3 hours of order posting time. You still have 72 hours to post the order, but the timeframes at which you will have to post the order will now be closer to customers preferred post time.

For example, if you receive an order that has posting time at 1am, you will have opportunity to post from 10pm to 4am for 3 consecutive days until expiration time. To help visualize these changes, we created “Posting Times” table which is available on your order view for every order and looks like this:

Example preferred publish time is Jun 22, 2017 at 12:00 pm
