Want to have your members advertise your server?
Simply set referrals in your control panel settings and set the rate.
Your members can generate a referral link by typing $refer. (or another supported language for $refer)
When they refer someone, they will get a ONE TIME (OR RECURRING) ACCOUNT CREDIT that you set for each paying member they refer to your server of the LESSER amount of roles purchased. Referrals are CREDITED at the moment of purchase.
Please see this example referral table to understand how referral credits work.
User A Purchase
Referred User B Purchase
If you set the recurring referral feature, that means the original referring member will get an account credit against their subscription every billing cycle that the person the referred stays subscribed to your service.
READ HOW IT WORKS
People are invited to YOUR SERVER as soon as they make a successful purchase.
Users who are not paid members of your service CAN still refer others and be tracked by simply typing $refer in your server and generating their link in your server. They will need to be paid out Manually if they are not a current customer.
It doesn't matter when someone purchased a role or what type of role they purchased (recurring or one time), if they refer someone they can still get credit for the referral.
The referral amount paid is the % of the FINAL AMOUNT PAID at the time of checkout. This means if a coupon was applied, only the AMOUNT CHARGED is what the % refund will be.
Account Credits are issued in the form of REFUNDS for the current/previous billing cycle.
The max someone can be credited is 100% OF THEIR BILL FOR THE CYCLE. Nothing over that.
The system will track referrals over 100% of what they paid, however if you wanted to pay them for referrals after they have already earned a full credit, you will need to pay manually.
ONLY THE ORIGINAL BILLING METHOD WILL BE CREDITED TO THEIR PREVIOUS BILL AND WILL BE APPLIED INSTANTLY IF A VALID SUBSCRIPTION EXISTS. NO OTHER FORM OF PAYMENT OR TRANSFERENCE OF MONEY. ONLY ORIGINAL ACCOUNT REFUND! (Whatever The Customer Used To Pay For The Role With)
USERS ON TRIAL WILL NOT GET REFERRAL CREDIT SINCE THEY DON'T HAVE A PAID ROLE.
USERS WHO REFER TO YOUR SERVICE WHO ARE NOT PAYING MEMBERS THEMSELVES WILL NOT BE PAID AUTOMATICALLY AND NEED TO BE PAID OUT MANUALLY
IF SOMEONE SIGNS UP WITHOUT A REFERRAL LINK THERE IS NO WAY FOR IT TO BE ADDED! THERE IS NO WAY FOR THIS TO BE CHANGED. NOT BY ANYONE.
(You can manually credit the original person in STRIPE but there is nothing the bot can do)
