I open my account today but not sure where to paste the referral link my friend sent me?

I open my account today and I am not sure where to paste the referral link my friend sent me? I went to my account details and the referral menu seems to be for new referrals I make with my newly created account. I also clicked on the link my friend sent me and it directs me to the login page, and when I do login, I am presented with the main page of my account. Not sure how to make the referral I got valid?

Hi there @schoobie,

Note that the referral credit is only applied to new accounts. It would not work if you already had an existing account.

There is no referral code that needs to be inserted to your account, you just need to click on your friend’s referral link and sign up for a new account.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
