You can also find the code above in this email. (Your referral link will look like this: https://chitika.com/publishers/apply.php?refid=YOUR USERNAME) Step 2: Get Social!  Share your unique referral code with your personal and professional networks through social channels, email and on your site. Step 3: Sit back and start earning money! Your work is done once a new user signs up with your unique referral code. You will start seeing the dollars add up quickly.

Tips for boosting your Referrals:

  • Incorporate more Referral Links onto your websites. Chances are you don’t have any referral links present on your website. More links = more cash in your pocket.
  • Blog about us. Own a blog? Write about any positive experiences you may have had with Chitika ads, and include your Referral Link on all clickable links in the article. You can also encourage users to sign up for Chitika even if they only want to use it for referral purposes (Reminder: they need to have a Chitika account to refer)!

Referral FAQ:

  • I know I referred someone, but I’m not seeing them in my referral report. The reason for this is that your referrals will not show until they receive their first payment. Once they do, you will see your commission in your referral report and in your pending balance as well.
  • I told someone to sign up for an account using my referral link, but they signed up the regular way and forgot. Can I have them added as my referral? No. The user will need to sign up for another account using your referral link in order for you to earn revenue from their account.
