No they don't. Giftz refer to how many trades you have done, and W bucks is well. . .your account money.

=============================================

Introduction -
This guide is simply a user-friendly feature to explain WI bucks & what they are for & what can be done with them.

As this is a new feature, it will be going through multiple edits as we understand the system and it is changed. -- Please consider this a living document!*

*a living document is a document exposed to frequent updates and/or changes.

For a quick over view of the features & how it works please visit this announcement - http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...-bucks-479352/ - written by Justin explaining in over-view what WI bucks can do.

Just a few notes before we get into the fun stuff!

When you see this icon - Click the image to open in full size. - it is a good idea to make a note (mental or paper ~) about the information. It's just little tidbits to pay close attention to. Generally they are information on rules & how they relate to WI bucks.

When you see this icon - Click the image to open in full size. - this is a known user group influenced interaction. the fee or reward depends on the user group. For example a moderator may not receive a fee for private messages as they are required to send many out.

=============================================

What are WI bucks -
WI bucks are a new reward feature put into place in WI on ____(official date here)which "rewards" members with a "play" cash and allows them to purchase features later available.

But what does it reward?
WI bucks are designed to reward activity based on user groups.Basically, it looks at everything you do on WI and estimates a increase or decrease in your funds. Certain things cost bucks but others increase them significantly.

These activities are also affected by your user group. For example, a webkinz may not gain as much WI bucks by posting as a gifted member. And vice versa.

Click the image to open in full size. What is a user group?
This is the rank of users you belong to, for example I belong to the user group "gift coach" - while you may belong to webkinz, lil kinz, gifted, gift guru, etc.

=============================================

A break down of features -

Here is a simple break down of the features & what you can expect to find. Some features may take away bucks but there are plenty of them that reward bucks to balance that.

There is no "set" reward/fee yet for these features as it is being adjusted to find a fair balance. More helpful threads may receive more bucks then others, etc.

In some features, the fee or reward depends on the user group interaction.For example a moderator may not receive a fee for private messages as they are required to send many out.

As mentioned before, when this is known it is noted by the Click the image to open in full size. icon.

Click the image to open in full size. User group induction -

What it is: a feature that rewards you with "bucks" when you move up in user groups. For example when you move from being a gifted member to a gift guru.

Referrals -

What is is:
a referral is like an invitation to join something. - When you tell your friends about WI and they put your username into the referral box - you get bucks!

Click the image to open in full size. Visits & Activity based on user group -

What this means:
The activity (participation) and visits to WI and how much "bucks" you get for participating in things are based upon your user group. For example - if a webkinz may earn more then a lil kinz for visiting, this may be not be as high as a gift guru.

Birthday present -

What this means: Remember that birthdate you gave WI when you registered? Well now you get a birthday gift on your birthday! Woo hoo!

Posts - on your threads & else where!

What this means: When you post on your own thread, you will receive some "bucks" for participating in the community. You will also receive bucks for posting comments on other people's threads as well. - It should be noted that "fluff" or copy & pasted messages may result in a loss of bucks as well.

Profile popularity -


What this means: When someone visits your profile, expect to see some bucks awarded! So get out there & visit some friends, you'll be leaving a friendly smile and some bucks to help out as well!

Click the image to open in full size. PM usage -

What this means: Update - thanks dogluver620.

No user should be charged for PMs anymore, if you are let an admin know~

Okay - so what can I do with them?

Currently the WI bucks feature is undergoing development and testing. There are no features available to purchase at this time.

This section will be updated as the information becomes available.

Hi! Ok well here is a guide for WI Bucks.

http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...ey-how-479553/

They can't be used for a lot yet but they will soon. You can give them to people who help if you don't to give reps out.

Giftz are the amount of trades you have made in the WI Gift Extange. The gift extange is where you set up a trading thread with your WW wants and haves - then people can offer. Like this. Say you have the Cow PSI. Some one wants it. They will offer and say something like "I will give you the Pig PSI for your cow PSI," and then you can accept the offer or decline. Then, you send it to each other on WW and leave FB or feedback. Feedback is like the kind on ebay. Where you say what you traded, if you got the items, and leave a message - usually saying - "A+ TRADER!!" Then your trade is over and that counts as a gift. You must first apply to become a GT or Gift Trainee before you can do that. You must be a member for 2 weeks + and have 50+ non - fluff (or important) posts to have the requirements to become one. Once you have been in the TS or training section for GT's for a while and have made good trades - you can be promoted to the BIG GE or Gifted and Gift Guru's trading center. Only GT'S can trade in the TS together and only GG's and G's can trade in the big GE together. Also GC's or gift coaches who train the GT'S can trade in the big GE.

To apply to become gifted go to this thread. It may also explain better.

Good luck - PM me if you need any more help!

Check out this guide. It should help you with the WI bucks issue:

http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...ey-how-479553/

As for the Giftz, those are how many trades you have made in the Gift Exchange.
However, to access the gift exchange you must become gifted. To find out how to
do that or to find out more about the gift exchange check out this link:

Good luck!

One you can't offer reps. You can give them to as many people as you want though.
Well WI are acually not related to Giftz. Click the link in my signature called WI Bucks to go to a great guide. Giftz are when you trade. You must be at least a gift Trainee. To learn all about that click the link in my siggy, All about the GE. Hope that helped!
