Introducing Rybbon Integration

Are you using Tribe’s virtual currency app to boost community engagement, improve the quality of contribution, and incentivize members to perform certain actions? Well, we have amazing news for you!

Introducing the Tribe and Rybbon integration designed to automate the virtual coin-to-rewards redemption process and empower the community members.

Rybbon is a leading online platform for businesses to send and manage digital rewards. Rybbon can handle large volumes of rewards with an easy-to-use platform, a vast range of reward choices, integration with popular third-party apps, and robust reporting.

This integration with Tribe is powered by Zapier and paves the way for the direct integration with Rybbon.

My colleague, @CJ Verma has created this video with an end-to-end description. ⤵️

Connecting with Rybbon

Currently, you need Tribe's Zapier app, Webhooks app, and Virtual Currency app for a complete setup. Since the Webhooks app is a Premium app, clients with a subscription to the Premium plan can take advantage of this integration.

Delighting your community

Since the virtual coins can be redeemed immediately, it excites the members as well as improves the success of your engagement objectives.

This integration allows you to run your campaigns with a location-agnostic approach. Rybbon would automatically curate country-appropriate reward options in the correct currency based on the recipient’s location.

Learn more about this integration.

If this looks interesting, please share how you are planning to use the integration.

Finally, it's a pleasure to welcome @Bradley Blinn from Rybbon. He is the Vice President of Strategic Partnerships... (More)

Release Notes

Protect your tribe from spam, fraud, and abuse.


reCAPTCHA, developed by Google has been at the forefront of bot mitigation for over a decade and actively protects data for millions of sites.

The technology uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive challenges to keep malicious software from engaging in abusive activities on your website. Meanwhile, legitimate users will be able to log in, view pages, or create accounts and fake users will be blocked.

Learn more about reCAPTCHA on Google 

Available on the Tribe app marketplace.

Admins can install the reCAPTCHA app in their community.

To enable reCAPTCHA v2 on a custom domain, you have to register your site and insert your public and private key within the Tribe's reCAPTCHA app settings. 

By enabling the reCAPTCHA app, new users would need to pass reCAPTCHA to create a new account. This will prevent spam accounts to be created on your Tribe.
