Credits, promos, and payment
Risk Factor content and features are only viewable to Risk Factor members who unlock properties either through credits or purchases.
A credit allows a user to unlock a property without having to purchase it via the billing process. One credit is automatically applied to everyone’s account to allow you to unlock your first property for free. This free credit will expire one year after registration. Credits cannot be purchased, however, they can be redeemed through promo codes.
A promo code is used to apply credits to a user’s account and can be worth one or more credits. Note, one credit is needed to unlock a property. All promo codes have an expiration date, meaning a specific timeframe in which the code can be redeemed to receive credits.
If you have already used the free credit you received when you registered for Risk Factor, you will need to enter your credit card and billing information in order to unlock subsequent properties. You have the option to enter your credit card information or connect your Apple Pay or Google Pay account. To save your payment information for future purchases check your Store credit card for future use. After you purchase a report you will receive two emails. The first is to notify you that your payment is currently processing. The second email is a receipt confirming your purchase. Once you receive the second email the Risk Factor information for the property will be unlocked.
