Is there a way to register the referral post-signup?

I forgot to use my friend’s referral link.

For any newcomers with the same question, if you just created your account and it is okay to delete it, just deactivate and delete your account from your profile and sign up again using the referral link.

I made the same mistake and signed up using google. Deleted my account and signed up using referral link with same google account and same credit card info and it worked.

I too forgot to use my referral after having a client sign up. I contacted support and they said they cannot manually apply a referral, it must be done on sign up.

I don’t think it is possible. You could contact Support via Control Panel and see if they can apply you to your friend’s referrals manually.
