Cycles Terms

Last updated: 12/8/2022

Cycles are a virtual token you can use to unlock additional features for your Replit account. Your right to use Cycles is a limited, personal, revocable license issued to you by Replit under the following terms, which supplement the Replit Terms of Service. Please read them in full before you purchase Cycles.

Acquiring Cycles

Cycles are available for purchase at a price that Replit determines and may change. When you purchase Cycles, they go into your Account which you can see at My Cycles. Replit may also limit on the number of Cycles you may hold, acquire, or expend in a single day. In the future, Replit may issue Cycles in other ways.

Using Cycles

Replit controls what features may be unlocked with Cycles and amounts of Cycles required to unlock them. Replit may change these features and amounts at any time, or in the future allow other users to set such amounts. To access and use Cycles you must maintain your account in good standing. If your account is suspended or terminated, you lose access to Cycles and depending on the violation may not receive them back.


Replit may enable you to give Cycles as a gratuity to other users, which we call a “Tip.” Tips may be subject to a transaction fee. You must not request or give tips in exchange for — or to promote or encourage — content or services that are against the Replit Terms of Service. Tips are entirely voluntary, and you will not receive anything in return. Replit does not moderate Tip exchanges or facilitate returns of Tips.


Replit provides a platform for users to exchange software on Replit for Cycles.

A Bounty Poster publicly posts Bounty details, and accepts any applicable fees. Upon posting, Replit deducts Cycles from the Poster’s account and holds them until the Bounty is completed.

A Bounty Hunter applies to complete the Bounty, and, if selected, creates and submits work. The Bounty Hunter affirms that they own all rights to the content in the work. When the Poster accepts the work, Replit transfers Cycles to the Hunter, and rights to the work transfer to the Poster.

In the event of a dispute, we encourage Posters and Hunters to try to settle issues between themselves. If for any reason this fails, users can contact Support.

Cash Out

The cash out program is for Bounty Hunters who have earned at least 35,000 Cycles to convert those Cycles to cash. To participate in cash out, you must verify your identity and payment information through our third party service providers. Eligibility to cash out is solely up to Replit, and the requirements may be changed by Replit at any time. Transaction fees may be assessed on each payment to you. These fees are charged by us and by our payment providers, and vary depending on the payment method chosen.

All payments made to US users (other than for certain limited exceptions due to reporting requirements) will be reported to the IRS and to you using a form 1099. Payments made to non-US users will not be reported to their home countries. You are responsible for any taxes that may be owed due to a cash out. Replit considers the cash out payments to be payments for services you have provided. All participants (whether you live in the US or elsewhere) are responsible for ensuring that all payments received are reported to the proper taxing authorities.

We are not able to remit payments to certain countries, entities, or individuals because of legal or other considerations.

No refunds

Cycles are not refundable.


Cycles may not be transferred, bartered, sublicensed, or sold between users, except through authorized channels that Replit may provide in the future, to which further conditions may apply. Any violation of this condition may result in the forfeiture of your Cycles and/or the suspension or termination of your Replit account.

No cash value

Cycles do not have any value in real currency, cannot be substituted for real currency, do not earn interest, and cannot be redeemed or refunded for real currency or anything else of value.

Expiration and fees

Cycles do not expire for as long as you maintain your Replit account, and we charge neither maintenance fees nor dormancy fees. If your Replit account is terminated, you forfeit your Cycles balance, and you will have no recourse against Replit. Replit may also discontinue Cycles at any time and no refunds will be issued.
