Bonus pLikes are complimentary pLikes that photagon offers to users. Bonus pLikes can be used only in Contest Classes and cannot be cashed out. If you are a lucky recipient of Bonus pLikes you have 20 days to use them or else they expire.

There are three ways:

Every pLike costs 1,15€, 1€ is the pLike value and 0,15€ include the transaction expenses and VAT.

When you purchase the pLikes, you automatically receive a confirmation of your payment by photagon. When you participate in contests, photagon will issue the receipt for your participation fee. Note that you do not receive a receipt for pLikes that are not spent in a Contest Class since you can cash them out any time.

In your account settings you can opt out from receiving emails. However, some important emails regarding transactions are sent by photagon to inform you about your payments and balance.

That way photagon protects your account and informs you about your financial activity inside the platform.
