On empowr, you have the ability to bid on, purchase, or Sponsor almost anything for sale - without spending any money upfront.
This is called the “Pay Now $0” feature.
When you win an auction or make a purchase, you have 72 hours to pay for the item, Sponsor it, or you can make it an Unpaid Item.
By choosing to make a purchase an “Unpaid Item”, it simply means that you are cancelling the transaction. In doing so, there is a small restocking fee that will be added to your balance, but you will not have to pay for the full price of the product.
You are allowed a certain number of Unpaid Items each month, but may temporarily lose your “Pay Now $0” privileges if you use too many in a short period of time.
When making a purchase, if you are not eligible for “Pay Now $0”, you will be given instructions on what you need to do in order to make yourself eligible.
By using your Unpaid Items wisely, the Pay Now $0 feature provides you the opportunity to earn a great deal by Sponsoring items in the empowr marketplace without committing your own capital.
