The Publishers' referral program is now available to all paid plan Adserver.Online users. You can reward your existing publishers that refer other publishers to your network/agency with a commission based on the % of what their referrals make.
How to activate
The referral program is disabled by default. In order to use it, you need to go to the Settings menu (Settings / Common / Publisher options) and tick a checkbox as shown in the picture.
After activation, the Referrals menu will be available on the publisher's panel. Publishers can obtain their referral links from this menu. You are free to set any commission % you deem appropriate.
At the same time, on the main (owner) panel, the Finance / Referrals section will be activated.
The referral program lifespan is a lifetime, but it can be limited upon support request.
Referral commission calculation happens after you create and complete a new payout.
If a publisher refers another publisher to your account, the system will calculate a reward for the former based on a payout amount (reward = payout amount * reward percentage).
The system will create a reward transaction and increase the balance of a referrer. The payout procedure remains the same. Therefore, a referrer needs to follow the same steps as a usual payout.
You can initiate a payout without paying a reward to a referrer. You have to uncheck this option on the payout form to do that.
Once a user follows the referral link for the first time, the system saves the referral code in cookies for 60 days (adjustable upon support request). Thus, if a visitor doesn't register immediately and leaves the website, this visitor can register later (within the following 60 days), and the system will still recognize him as a referred user.
If the same user visits the website multiple times using different referral links, the first one will be saved and used during his registration.
