What’s NewNew?

NewNew is an interactive marketplace where you bid, vote and back the outcomes of people’s lives.

How do Bids work?

With Bids, you send a creator a bid with what you want them to do, how much you’re willing to spend, and then you watch them do the bid.

You can come up with your own unique bid idea, or, you can back someone else’s idea to make sure it gets chosen!

Do I pay if the creator doesn’t choose my bid?

No. You only pay if the creator chooses to do your bid and uploads a video of themselves doing it. When you place a bid, a temporary hold may be placed on your card, but the hold always gets removed if your bid wasn’t chosen.

What’s a Superpoll?

It’s a paid poll where you watch the creator do the option that gets the most amount of votes when the timer ends.

You can pay to vote on the options presented by the creator, or, if the creator offers a subscription, their subscribers can add their own option.

The creator has to post a video doing the winning option, or they’ll be banned from the platform.

Do I pay if the creator doesn’t choose the option I voted on?

No. A temporary hold may be placed on your card at the time you voted, but it gets released if the creator doesn’t choose the option you voted on.

How do Goals work?

You pool money with other people to back a creator’s goal. Creators post cool and interesting personal goals and once enough people back them, you get to watch them actually do the goal IRL.

Will I get charged if a goal doesn’t get enough backers?

No. If the goal isn’t reached, then the temporary hold placed on your card will be released. You’ll only get charged if the Goal was successfully reached.

How can I be a creator?

Just sign up then tap the “Create now” button in the top navigation. It takes less than a minute to become a creator and you’ll be ready to go right away!

📊 Subscriptions

How do subscriptions work?

Subscribing to your favorite creator lets you unlock exclusive extras. These include 1-on-1 convos with that creator, free votes on every Superpoll the creator makes, and the power to add your own options to their Superpolls.

How much is a subscription?

Every creator sets their own subscription price and subscriptions start as low as $1.99 per month.

When I subscribe to one creator, does it mean I’m subscribed to all creators?

Your subscription gives you access to the specific creator you chose on NewNew.

Can I cancel a subscription?

Yes. You can cancel a subscription at any time. Just go to the creator's profile, open the "More" menu and then tap unsubscribe. Don’t worry…if you cancel in the middle of your billing period, you'll still be able to interact with the creator until the end of the billing period.

Do all creators offer a subscription?

No. Although every creator can offer subscriptions, some creators choose not to.

📌 General

Can I report a creator?

Definitely. Go to the creator’s profile, click the “More” icon (the three vertical dots) and then choose “Report”. You’ll be able to let us know a few details and our team will look into it right away.

Can I make my activity private on NewNew?

Yes. If you want to participate on NewNew without revealing your info, you can change this in your Profile Settings at any time.

The only exception to this is if your bid is chosen by the creator in a Bid, or if your option got the most votes in Superpolls, in which case the audience will see that you were their lucky one chosen, regardless of if your activity is set to private.

🗂 Creators

How do I make money on NewNew?

On NewNew, people pay to vote and bid on your life decisions, and in return, you show them the outcome of that decision. The experience between you and the audience is built on trust, and the most successful creators bring a healthy dose of creativity and consistency to the content they create. On NewNew, everyone is rewarded and entertained.

How do I get paid?

Getting paid on NewNew is easy. You’ll be able to keep track of how much money you earned in your dashboard. Creators will get paid 14 days after receiving funds.

How do Bids work?

Bids are a way to have the audience send you different bids on what you should do. People will send various bids with their ideas, and how much they’ll pay to see you do it. When the time’s up, you’ll choose your favorite bid and upload a video of yourself doing it! Don’t worry…you don’t have to choose the highest bid (although you can if you want to!). You can choose any bid you feel comfortable with doing.

How do Superpolls work?

With Superpolls, you post a video poll with a few options for the audience to choose from. People pay to vote on their favorite option and when time’s up, you upload a video response of yourself doing the option that got the most votes!

What happens if my Superpoll has a tie?

If your Superpoll has a tie once the timer ends, the option that got the most amount of votes first will be the winning option.

How do Goals work?

Choose a Goal you want to achieve and the number of backers it will take for you to reach it. In order for a person to back your Goal, they’ll need to contribute a minimum of $5 (up to sky’s the limit) to participate.

If you get enough backers before the time’s up, you get to keep the money earned and the ability to share a video with your audience of you doing the Goal!

How do subscriptions work?

Subscriptions give your audience access to exclusives such as: getting a free vote on every Superpoll you post, the ability to have a 1-on-1 convo with you in the chat, and the ability to add a custom option in your Superpoll.

FYI, it’s not mandatory to offer a subscription with your account.

Should I offer a subscription?

Subscriptions are a great way to connect with your audience in a deeper way (while earning $)! If you post frequently and enjoy building a relationship with your community, it’s worth offering it to your audience. You can also turn off your subscription at any point if you don’t think it's for you.

Can I change my subscription price?

Yes. You can change your subscription price at any point. Once you change the price, your current subscribers will continue to pay the old price, and the change in price will apply to new subscribers effective immediately.

Can I block or report a user?

You can block or report a user by going to their profile, clicking the “More” button (the three vertical dots) and tapping “Report” or “Block”.

You can also report or block a subscriber directly in your DM with them.

Which decision type is best for me to post?

If you’re more outgoing and a bit of a risk-taker, Bids are definitely for you.

If you like having more control over situations and don’t like too many surprises, Superpolls are fitting.

Goals are for all personality types since people can back more traditional goals, all the way up to wild and outrageous ones.

How do I get people to participate in my decisions?

Share your decision! You can post links to your decisions on other platforms and you can also keep your custom URL visible on other platforms so people can also see what you’re up to. If your decision gets enough people participating, it will even get featured on NewNew’s homepage for all to see!

How long do I have to post my response video once my decision has ended?

We’ll notify you via email with the exact amount of time you have to post it once it ends. A general rule of thumb is to post your response within 48 hours of the decision ending. To keep things fair for the audience, if you don’t post your response within the time period provided in your email, the decision will be canceled, everyone will be refunded and you won’t be able to earn any money from the decision.

How long can my videos be?

Your original videos and response videos must be at least 10 seconds long and can be up to 10 minutes long.

How do I become a “Creator on the rise”?

There’s no magic formula, but it tends to favor creators who:

  1. Post interesting, fun, and unusual decisions (not boring, mundane ones)
  2. Share their custom link across their socials to bring in their audience
  3. Follow through on their decisions with well thought out and engaging response videos
Can I post nudes or X-rated content?

Hard no. Nude, adult, X-rated and pornographic content is not allowed on NewNew.

Check our Community Guidelines for what is and isn’t permitted.

Is there a minimum amount I need to earn before being able to cash out?

Yes. Please refer to this link to see the minimum payout amount for your country.

Can I bid, vote, or back my own decisions?

No. To keep things fair to the community on NewNew, only the audience can bid, vote or back the decisions you post.

How much of my earnings do I get to keep?

Creators on NewNew keep 80% of their gross earnings. The rest goes to cover payment fees, transfer fees, payout fees etc.

What kinds of decisions should I post?

Ones that will get people talking! From big life moments and once in a lifetime occasions, to everyday things in your general life, informative/advice, upcoming plans and so much more.
