What is 1 peer to peer payment?
MM Team says
Within the Step App, you can send money directly to friends and family who also have a Step account, otherwise known as a peer to peer payment.
To send money to someone, visit your account balance page, which shows your balance and activity, and then click the Send button.
You then choose how much you want to send, enter the other user’s full name, phone number or username, and click Send to transfer the money to them.
In order to join the Step Squad, you would have to complete 1 of these peer to peer payments as well as the other requirements.
What do we do if we didn’t receive the refferal bonus for step?
There’s a contact them option on the bottom of step.com. I didn’t receive it either
Linda Belinda says
Hmm.. what is considered young adult? And what happens to the account once you reach a certain age? Lol
MM Team says
Hello Linda, anyone who is at least 13 years old can join Step. If you are under 18, you’ll need a parent or legal guardian to finalize your account. However, if you are over 18, you can join too. There is no maximum age, and nothing happens to your account once you reach a certain age, so adults can join too. Thanks for your comment.
