Hi, I have some questions about referral program.

I recently got involved in share Digital Ocean as a solution on Brazilian programing groups, and help new users with some common questions.

And now, I have 7 referral as pending (Amount you stand to earn when your referrals have spent $25.) $0 earned and $0 paid

By question here are:

  1. I will earn $25 after 60 days trial, for example: after trial, new user pay $5 and I receive $5? $25? Or, after trial users that pays $5 monthly I will receive $25 after 5 months? Or none of those?

  2. Whats the diference between earned and paid?

  3. There is a deadline to consume earned credits?

Well. that is it. Thanks and cheers for all folks.

Hi there @ricagurgel,

You will get $25 credit as soon as your referral actually spends $25.

The earned amount is the amount that is pending to be applied to your account. It could take up to a few weeks for this to be processed.

The paid section is the total referral credits that you’ve received.

Your referral credits are active for 12 months, for more information on why the credits expire I would recommend reading this blog post here:

Hope that this helps!
