To earn Karats, for either your own Opportunities or those of a guest/referral, an Opportunity must be completed, meaning that the hours must be verified. Golden does this several ways:
- Geolocation - This is the best and fastest way to verify hours. When you enable location services for the Golden App, we can automatically check you in and out using your location.
- Kiosk/QR Code - Organizers also have the option of checking in users at the events either manually using our Check-In Kiosk, or by having you scan a QR code, both of which will verify your attendance on the spot. However, it is up to the organizer if they choose to use these tools.
- Manual - After an opportunity has passed, Organizers can verify attendance via the Dashboard on their own time. However, we cannot guarantee how soon an organizer will complete this, it could be right after or take several days. If you’re not using one of the two previousprior check-in methods, please allow 3-7 days for verification.
Karats sent to you, or that are earned by completing Reflections will be processed immediately.
