If you link StepCash to your Facebook account, the necessary information will be retrieved and registered in our system automatically. For those who register manually, you will be asked to input some basic information such as your name, email, password, birthday. We also ask for some optional information like your weight and height so we can calibrate the app to measure your calories burned more accurately.
StepCash tracks the steps you take via your phone's in-built pedometer. After downloading the app, sign in for the first time and StepCash will automatically run in the background of your phone (for iPhone 5s and above or Android 4.4 Kit Kat and above). Users of these mobile devices do not need to initiate the app manually every time. For the full list of phones, please refer to the last question in this section.
Since major mobile phone companies have written algorithms to optimize the performance of their pedometers, StepCash is built on top of each mobile device’s native, in-built pedometer algorithm. For mobile phones that do not have this feature, our developers will work to implement our own algorithm on the accelerometer. Regardless, through our benchmarking tests, we did not find huge discrepancies in number of steps tracked using StepCash compared to other pedometer apps.
While we hope that StepCash will encourage more people to incorporate walking into their daily regime, we keep a strict tab on those who consistently “over-walk”. If there is over-active walking activity in an account, we will flag it and contact you should we believe that the account has been rigged. We also reserve the right to suspend any accounts that we think are fraudulent, and not being used in the right spirit of fitness!
The main difference between missions and quests is the frequency. Quests, once completed, will not re-surface or be available for completion to gain points. One example of a quest is “Like StepCash on Facebook”.
On the other hand, missions will re-appear again and again to engage the user and reward completion with points. See the next question below for more details on missions.
There are 2 types of missions – daily and cumulative. Every day, the user will receive 3 daily missions, where upon completion, will enable the user to earn points. An example of a daily mission would be “Walk 3,000 steps”. These 3 missions will automatically change every day so check back frequently!
With the completion of daily missions, the user is also working towards finishing cumulative missions, which takes into account daily missions over time. For example, if a cumulative mission is “Walk 250,000 Steps” then points will be awarded when the user has completed 25,000 steps. The main aim of cumulative missions is to award consistent walking over a prolonged period of time.
Points are in-app currencies that can be use to exchange vouchers.
By using a token that is issued only once a day when you watch any advertisement, you can convert your steps into points through "My Wallet".
You get points the moment you sign up! To earn more points, you need to complete your missions for the day, show some love and support to our advertisers by watching advertisements and engage actively in our social media activities. For more information, click here!
Tokens exist to allow you to convert your steps into points. In other words, you can convert steps into points if you don’t have a token. To obtain your token, you have to watch an advertisement, which can be found under “My Wallet” tab. One token is only issued once per day for each user, regardless of the number of advertisements watched.
StepCash is about rewarding you for the effort you put into walking, and making walking enjoyable and fulfilling! Active users can redeem from 8 categories of vouchers to enhance every aspect of your life, including F&B, entertainment, fashion, beauty, electronics, education, home & furniture as well as health & sports. For merchants who wish to contribute to this movement of promoting walking, do reach out to us!
Watching 1 advertisement will earn you 1 token per day, which is essential to allowing you to convert steps taken into points for voucher redemption. However, by watching 1 advertisement per day, you can also earn 1,000 points, with a maximum of 3 advertisements per day. Points will not be awarded for the same advertisement re-watched on the same day. Show some love, and learn more about the awesome promotions happening around in Singapore!
