Prosper Group Match Rewards Cancelled in Favor of Referral Program | P2P Lending, Peer to Peer Lending, People to People Lending

As any serious Prosper lender will tell you, Groups don’t make make much sense for lenders. What is the benefit? Sure I have a group and sure my group (all lenders) get benefits (such as early looks at analysis I am working on), but in general why would a lender want to be a member of a group?

Borrower’s let my give you some free advice. If you want to get your listing funded click here, join Prosper, and make a listing following my suggestions. The key to getting funded is to tell you story and income and expenses, use a picture/url, and use a VERY competitive starting interest rate (high).

BUT THE BEST PART of the referral program is the $25 New Lender Bonus.
