HOW FOYA VOTING WORKS
Your account will be credited with 1 voting credit per day immediately after you create an account. The 1 credit will allow you to vote once for 1 nominee. In case you would like to vote more than once for more than one nominee, you will be required to buy more voting credits. You will be able to vote as many times as your voting credit allows.
You can also vote without login in or signing up. Simply go to the nominee you would like to vote for and click Express Vote. This option does not give you any free voting credits.

WHAT DOES THE TRENDING NOMINEES LIST MEAN ON THE HOMEPAGE?
The trending list simply shows nominees who have the highest votes within 24hrs, it does not mean they have the highest vote overall. The list keeps changing as nominees keep increasing their votes and it does not mean that they are the winners.
The verification codes are sent to the phone number (May not be delivered if the user has blocked promotional messages) and email address provided in case it is not delivered on one channel. check your email including "Updates, promotions and spam" sections. If the user still does not see the code, kindly ask them to request us to verify them through the message icon on our website or email us at email@example.com

Why hasn't my account been credited with the daily credits?
If you're experiencing a situation where your account is no longer receiving the free daily credits or if your newly created account isn't credited with free votes, this is likely due to the implementation of voter fraud security measures. Regrettably, this change is permanent.
To receive free credits, please create only one account using a valid email address and phone number, and follow the standard verification process. Please note that as we introduce even stricter measures, more accounts may be affected. The free credits will start to reflect 24hrs after the account has been verified
