Referral Levels Explained

Referring new users to CashCrate is one of the best ways to earn more money month after month. The more users you refer, the more you earn.  We have easy to use tools to help you get referrals: Refer Others and Make More Money! We Make it Easy!

CashCrate has four different Referral Levels that can be reached. As you refer more and more active users, your rank gradually increases, and so does the amount you earn.

-The referral commission percentage is paid on all Surveys (from the Surveys and Best Surveys Tabs) and Cash Offers that your direct referrals complete, with the exception of the $0.50 New User Profile and any other items with a payout of less than 5 cents (e.g. the Cashcrate Games).

-You also get a $3.00 bonus when a referral from any country earns their first $10.00. When you reach Silver, the $1 referral bonus option becomes available too: $1.00 when a referral in the USA, Canada, or the UK completes their first survey or cash offer.

-Additionally, you earn 5 cents for every Bonus Survey item a referral completes and 5 cents for each Bonus Offer. Referral commissions from Bonus Surveys and Bonus Offers are credited as "bonuses" rather than "referral" earnings and are added to your total Bonus amount.

-To calculate the "Active" referral numbers below, we count USA referrals who complete at least one survey or cash offer. But you'll still earn referral commissions if you have someone join from another country and they do offers and surveys.

Here are the ranks and the benefits associated with them:

First Level: Bronze

All users start out at this referral level.

Active Referrals or Earnings Needed: None! First Level Referral Earnings: 20% of survey and offer earnings.

Other Benefits:

- Get a $3.00 bonus when each referral makes their first $10.00.
- Get $0.05 for each qualifying Bonus Survey item your referral completes. 
- Get $0.05 for each qualifying Bonus Offer your referral completes. 

Second Level: Silver

Active Referrals or Earnings Needed: 25 Active Referrals or $100 First Level Referral Earnings: 25% of survey and offer earnings

Other Benefits:

- Get paid on the 1st of every month rather than the 15th.
- Choose between Check, PayPal, or Direct Deposit* for your payment method.
- The $1 referral bonus also becomes available: $1.00 when a referral in the United States, Canada, or United Kingdom completes their first survey or cash offer. Note: Some referrals may show as "active" if they have completed their demographic profile, but the $1 referral bonus is only applied when an actual survey or offer is credited.

Third Level: Gold

Active Referrals or Earnings Needed: 100 Active Referrals or $250 First Level Referral Earnings: 25% of survey and offer earnings

Other Benefits:

- Weekly Payments* become available.

 Fourth Level: Elite

Active Referrals or Earnings Needed: 500 Active Referrals or $750 First Level Referral Earnings: 30% of survey and offer earnings

Other Benefits:

- Elite members get the highest referral commission!
- Weekly Payments* are available.

Want more info? Check out the Referral Section on the CashCrate Forum and feel free to ask questions.

*Note: Payment by check is available worldwide to all members. Direct Deposit is available to USA members only. PayPal is available to all countries where it is accepted. The payout minimum is still $20 for monthly payments, and $100 to qualify for a weekly payment.

    How can I get started? I desired to refer, but all the clicks don't generate any searching? I need some money please.

    From CashCrate: To refer others, just give them your unique referral link. You can find your referral link on the Referrals Page ( https://www.cashcrate.com/dashboard#referrals ). When people click your referral link and join CashCrate, they join as your referral.
