It won't. Influence will be awarded and paid out the same way as it is for Quirky's other products.  The breakdowns of our royalties are well spelled out here.
Are you hosting a special product evaluation for these ideas?
We plan to host a product evaluation for ideas submitted to the wink category once a month. The first one will be on April 17, the second on May 22.
