Earlier this year I wrote a post about Influencer Marketing Platforms To Earn More Money. One of the companies I wrote about is AmbassadHer, which I’ve been using for around six months.
What is AmbassadHer?
AmbassadHer is an influencer marketing platform of over 650,000 members who are rewarded for being themselves.
AmbassadHer members get rewarded for posting on social media about products they love as well as performing other tasks like reviewing and providing feedback for brands. Work with new, upcoming-and-coming brands as well as established brands such as Airbnb and Febreeze.
How does AmbassadHer work?
AmbassadHer introduces its members to brands they love and provides the opportunity for them to earn rewards by completing tasks such as posting on instagram or leaving a real review on a third-party website. They believe real people have true influence online and work to find the most authentic people to represent their brand partners. Follower counts and other traditional metrics are not as important in their community.
Become an AmbassadHer All-Access Member
For $2.99 per month you can apply to become an AmbassadHer All-Access member.
Unlimited applications: All-Access Members can apply to every opportunity on the site while only about 1/3 are open to everyone else.
Money Back Guarantee: If you are not enrolled in an opportunity in any given month, just send them a quick email and they will provide a refund!
Early + Priority Enrollment: All-Access Members receive early-access to apply to opportunities as well as priority over everyone else when campaigns have more than enough qualified applicants.
Here’s one example of a campaign that I’m working on within the AmbassadHer platform. When you review all the opportunities, you will scroll to view the products available at that time. This is a campaign about OWYN Protein Shakes.
When I click “Learn more,” I’m taken to the campaign’s opportunity brief. Each product has different requirements, so it’s good to review the opportunity brief before applying.
OWYN Protein Shakes opportunity brief: “You’re in! Please read the instructions below carefully. If you have any questions, or cannot complete this opportunity, please e-mail email@example.com with the subject line “OWYN Opportunity.”
You have 5 days from receiving product to post to Instagram.
Accepted Enrollment Email
For this specific campaign, I received a product sent direct to my house (they keep an address on file for this purpose).

AmbassadHer Successful Campaign Completion
From enrolling in this opportunity and being accepted on April 1, 2022, it wasn’t accepted as successfully complete until April 29, 2022. This opportunity took a total of 29 days to complete.
And there was one caveat with specific campaign (each one is different). The company sent the product to me, then I received an email that they sent the wrong flavor… So I had to wait to receive the correct product in the mail and that took an extra week.
The AmbassadHer payments for completing various opportunities has been widely different each time. Their standard terms for payments are “net 14”. This means that after you have successfully completed an opportunity they have 14 business days to send you payment.
Stripe: Upon approval of final submission, you will receive payment via STRIPE based on AmbassadHer’s payment terms. They have a help article about setting up your Stripe account. If they don’t have Stripe working correctly, then I receive payments via Venmo.
The total amount of money or “rewards” I’ve received so far from eleven campaigns is $311.
Is AmbassadHer legit?
Yes, AmbassadHer is a legit influencer marketing platform. I have received over ten different products at this time in return for a review on instagram or on a third-party website.
It’s not my favorite platform at this time, but I do not have enough social media followers to join other influencer marketing platforms (most require a minimum of 1,000 followers).
Cons: You purchases upfront (out of pocket) and then they will reimburse you once you complete the campaign. If you’re okay with shelling out $20-50 for a product and wait a month or two, then it’s okay. But if you’re cash strapped to begin with, then their payouts may take too long.
Pros: They work with influencers and brands (large and small) with no minimum requirements. Some opportunities require Instagram posts, Amazon reviews, or website reviews. I even completed an Apple iOS App review for a product.

Update 10/17/2022 – Tortilla Campaign
On Friday, June 24, 2022 I received an email to participate in an almond flour tortillas campaign. I was accepted into the campaign on Monday, June 27 and I ordered the product on Amazon the same day.
I received the tortillas on July 1. I cooked a recipe to showcase the tortillas and take photos/video of the product. I submitted my review on Amazon and it went live on July 5. I completed my end of the campaign by July 7.
AmbassadHer sent an email that the campaign was completed on July 21. They’re supposed to put out in a net 14 schedule – which should be 14 days. I estimate that I should expect to receive payment around August 4.
I didn’t receive payment until August 25, but I only received $38. The payout amount was listed at $46. I emailed support to ask about the rest of the payment.
Support confirmed the wrong payout amount, but I had to follow up again to ask when I will be receiving payment. They responded that I’ve been added to the queue on September 6.
I emailed again to ask when I should be expecting the rest of the campaign’s payment, but they couldn’t tell me a date. They only let me know that I’m “on the list to be paid.”
I finally received a payment of $7 on October 17, but it still wasn’t the full amount. I’m still owed $1. I emailed support acknowledging that I’ve received payment finally, but it was $1 short…
10/18/2022: Support messaged me back that the $45 is the full payout for the campaign and that they’ve paid me in full. Even though I’ve given them a screenshot of the campaign that lists that the total payout is $46. I replied back with another screenshot of the campaign listing. At this point I don’t care about the dollar, I care about the principle of the situation.
