Previously PayPal was offering $20 for each referral & once it became popular, they stopped their referral program. Now it’s good to hear that PayPal is giving a chance to earn up to $10 when you refer someone to PayPal using your referral link.

If you don’t know what is PayPal, let me inform you that PayPal is the safest way to get paid online for Freelancers. Using PayPal, you can send and receive money from any country across the world.

PayPal Referral Program

For the online payment system, PayPal was the winner for the last several years and then, many competitors like Payoneer and all came. But they are not even able to provide services like PayPal.

PayPal charges more than other payment service providers but it’s really quick in terms of transferring Payment, helping, or resolving any query raised by a customer. I personally satisfied with PayPal for sending and receiving the international transfer.

What is PayPal Referral Program

PayPal referral program allows you to earn $10 for each referred user from your referral link. It’s available for all PayPal users with Paypal account in good standing. If you have a PayPal account, you too can start making $10 per invited user by you. Check below how it works.

Here is how the PayPal referral program works:

First of all, you share your PayPal referral link with the user or post on your blog, so that your reader will signup for a PayPal account using your referral link.

Once they create a PayPal account, they should receive $100 within 45 days of their signup. Once it fulfills that criteria, you and your referred person both will receive a $10 PayPal voucher.

Usually, you will see information about creating your PayPal referral link when you log in to your PayPal account. However, check out the steps below on how to get your PayPal referral link.

How to get your PayPal referral link:

Let’s consider you have a PayPal account in good standing and you are eligible for the PayPal referral program.

How to get PayPal Referral link

  • Log in to your PayPal account.
  • Go to Merchant referral page link
  • Scroll down to the bottom to see the Get your referral link button
  • Fill up your name, PayPal email address, and mobile number
  • Click on the Get Referral link button

On the next page, you will get the referral link that you can directly share on WhatsApp, email, or copy and paste wherever needed.

You should also note that using this PayPal affiliate program, you can earn a maximum of $100 with one Paypal account. Also, your referee must use your PayPal referral link to create an account & receive an international payment of at least $100 within 45 days.

While posting your PayPal affiliate link, you should comply with the FTC guideline for sharing your affiliate link. While you refer someone to use your referral link, you should also mention that you will receive a commission when users signup using your link. Not only for PayPal but while accepting sponsored blog posts, you should also add a disclosure to avoid rejection of affiliate payment.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, if you are new to PayPal, signup for a new PayPal account and start making money as a freelancer. I have already written a lot about how to make money online.
