Hi there,

I just won my first money on referrals and have this question. I on a amount of money by somebody, now when i check his profile i see that he has purchased between 1-9 files, doesn’t that mean i get 30% also for his first purchase? Or at that amount of money are included both deposit money + first purchase!

Here is what is shown at my statements:

You can get money only once – from deposit or from first direct sale in case that the user didn’t deposit money.

Hi BlinVarfi,

exactly as Survivor said.

@GraficAndMedia, once signed up, it will last forever (I believe).

If a person clicks a link, they have three months before the cookie expires. If they sign-up and purchase in that three months, then you earn the commission

Hotpin is correct, but once they’ve signed up after clicking your link, you’ll earn a commission regardless of the length of time it takes them to deposit.

You got only 3 months to get the commission though as the referrals page say! maybe i am wrong or the referral page is not clear enough :)

Yeah that’s strange.. We had this debate a few months ago but i can’t find the thread, and I’m sure a dev popped his head in and said the referrals would last and someone proved it with a referral feee 6 or 7 months after their last registered users…

I’ll try find the thread

Found it.

Here is John’s comment (he’s a site Dev):

If a user arrives at the site without a referral cookie set and also without a referral code in the url, we set a special blank referral to say “Hey this guy arrived of his own volition and no one gets paid”. If they arrive through a referral link, then we set a referral cookie that lasts for 3 months. If that user signs up in that three months, their account is permanently linked to the account that referred them. If they take 2 years to spend money with us, the referring user will still earn the commission. The referral commission will be payed out at whatever the percentage is at the time of the deposit, not at the time of visiting the site the first time, or when they sign up.

you can view the original thread here.

I will send Support a quick note to update the Wiki :)
