What Tapestri collects vs What you give to big tech

Yes, Tapestri is a free app and will always be. This free app allows anyone to tap in and get paid up to $25 every month for the mobile data their phone creates as they go about their day.

Tapestri is a free app that collects mobile device data and monetizes it for the user. The data collected is anonymous device data and not PII (Personally Identifiable Information). Your privacy is our priority. 

When you create your app account, your name, email and everything else that makes you, you, go into our secure, encrypted (decentralized) servers in the cloud; your data then goes through an elaborate separation process to become completely and irreversibly, 100% anonymous. The only piece of information that's a constant is a random identifier moving or resting to and from a retail location. At the end of the day, anonymized visitation data is what you'll be passing along to us and what you'll earn on month after month.

  • The minimum balance for transfer is $10. Earnings accumulate in your Tapestri Wallet until they total $10+. Then they are paid next payday. 
  • All apps have a 30 day activation period before any earnings can be verified and become payable on the 15th of the following month AFTER verification. 

    1. Mobile event activity: Tapestri pays for the event activity your device creates. It's your data; you should get paid for it!

    • Tapestri verifies your mobile event activity earnings after your app has been active for 30 days. Your goal resets on the 1st day of the month and all previous earnings transfer to your Tapestri Wallet for verification before they are paid. EX: Mobile event activity collected during Oct is verified in November and paid on 12/15/21. 

      2. Surveys completed during the current calendar month are authenticated the next month. 

      • This process takes up to 30 days. EX: All surveys completed in Oct. are authenticated in November and paid on 12/15/21. 

      3. Referral bonuses: Every app referral generates a pending commission payable to you.  This bonus stays in a pending state until 30 days of activity is verified. You get a bonus on all referrals with 30 days of activity during Oct on 11/15/21, referrals with 30 days of activity during November pay a bonus on 12/15/21 etc.

      • An active app is set to always allow location & has had event activity at least 90% of a 30 day period to qualify for a referral bonus. 

      4. Payday is the 15th of every month for all verified mobile activity, survey, referral earnings and affiliate bonuses.

      EX: You activate your app on Dec. 12 & it remains active through Jan 11 (30 days). From Dec 12-31, 2021 you earn $6 for surveys, $4.30 for mobile event activity & 2 friends you referred activated their apps on Dec 16th.

               February 15th payment balance: $6 (surveys) + $4.30 (data) = $10.30

      Assuming your 2 referrals have the app active through January, you will also earn another $2 for a total payout of $12.30 on Feb 15th.

                                  



      You earn referral bonuses on the 15th of every month for as long as your referral has an active* Tapestri app. These bonuses are recurring (paid every month the app is active) and there is no limit to how many people you can refer.  


      EX: Your referral activates their app account on the 17th of the current month. Let's say the current month is September. The app remains active through the 16th of the next month (October). You earn a bonus on the 15th of the following month (November) and every month there after as long as the app remains active on your referrals device.


      Payday is the 15th of the month, every 30 days your mobile data, survey and referral earnings are verified and accumulate until they total $10 or more. Once your verified earnings total $10+ you can request they be deposited into your linked account on the 15th of the following month.


      *An active app is set to always allow location & has had event activity at least 90% of a 30 day period to qualify for a referral bonus. If the app is not active, a referral bonus is not paid for that time period.


      Every app install that remains active will generate a recurring referral commission every 30 days. The commission will be paid to the Stripe account associated with your app on the 15th of the following month after they are verified. Payments take up to 5 business days to process.

      No. We have strict rules around minors using our App. Its incredibly important that we protect our minors. As we grow, our attention and focus on privacy will increase across this active user demographic.
      Currently, Tapestri is available only in the US & Canada. We have big aspirations to rapidly expand around the world over the next few months, so watch this space and stay tapped in.

      Your privacy is our priority. While you are out at POI (Points of interest) like stores, parks and businesses, other Tapsters (app users) can see your anonymous (nameless) avatar at these locations on the Tapestri map. Your Avatar is always incognito (hidden) from everyone but you, while you are at home (CDN- common nighttime dwelling).

        Tapestriland (The Map): The map shows anonymous Tapsters, out in public, getting paid for the device location event activity their phones create daily.


        Your privacy is our priority. The information on your profile is for your eyes only and is never monetized or shared.

        Our app only takes 50MB of space and does not need to be open to work, thus it uses less than 2% of your battery every 24 hours.
