  • You will earn 40% commission on all futures trading fees paid by your referred users for 90 days after they unlock futures trading using your unique referral link
  • Referred users get a 5% fee discount for 30 days after unlocking futures trading
How do I get my commission from referred clients?
  • Commissions are paid automatically unto your futures account as your referees trade
  • You will start earning commissions on the date your referee places their first trade, provided they unlocked futures trading before the promo end date
  • Commissions will stop 90 days after your referee unlocked futures trading
  • The more your referees trade, the higher your commissions
