What is the Refer & Earn program?

The Refer & Earn program allows users of OpenSimSim to earn commission by referring new paying customers to OpenSimSim.

How do I refer a company?

Each OpenSimSim user has a unique referral URL, which they can find on the Refer & Earn page on the mobile app.

You can share the URL or use it to create an account yourself to show a business just how easy scheduling employees can be!

How can I earn commission?

There are two criteria to earn commission:

1) A new account must be created using the user's referral link

2) The new account must sign-up to a paid plan

Does the company I refer receive anything?

Yes. Each new company you refer will receive one month free access to our Premium solution.

How is commission calculated?

A user will earn 50% commission on all net payments for 180 days following the first date a payment is received by a company they have referred.

Commission will be paid on all payments, including:

  • Monthly subscriptions

  • Annual subscriptions

  • Additional locations

  • Account upgrades

The only exception to this is where a company pays for a service package to assist in the setup of their account. Commissions are not paid on service packages, and these are not considered in the calculation of a 'first payment date'.

Where a refund is issued to a company, the commission for the refunded amount will be removed from the next commission payment.

When will I receive my commission?

Commissions are generally made available 30 days after a payment is received by OpenSimSim.

For monthly subscriptions

All commissions will be made available 30 days following the monthly payment date. For example, if a referred company makes a payment on January 1st, commission will be made available on January 31st for this payment.

For annual subscriptions

All commissions will be made available every 30 days following the annual payment date. For example, for an annual payment made on January 1st, commissions will be received on January 31st, March 2nd, April 1st, May 1st, May 31st and June 30th.

Commission will continue to accrue in your account until you choose to make a withdrawal.

How do I know how much I've earned?

All information about the referral program, including referral codes, available balance, and transaction history can be found under Refer & Earn on the More menu within the mobile app.

(Note referral program data is only available on the mobile app, and not on the website app.)

How do I make a withdrawal?

A user must choose to make a withdrawal in order to transfer their commission to their bank account. Only full withdrawals are supported.

Withdrawals can be performed at any time. Each withdrawal is subject to a fee of 1.5% or 25c (whichever is higher), based on fees charged by PayPal.

All payments are made to the mobile number associated with the user's account. Once a withdrawal is requested, the user will receive a text message from PayPal with instructions on how to accept the payment.

Do I need a PayPal account?

Yes you do need a PayPal account to claim the payment and will be given the option to set one up if you don’t already have one.

If you do not create a PayPal account and you do not accept the payment within 30 days of withdrawal, the money will be returned to your OpenSimSim account to withdraw at a later time.

Is there a limit to how many businesses I can refer?

No, there is no limit. You many refer as many businesses as you like.

Is there a limit to the amount of commission I can earn?

No, there is no limit. You will earn 50% commission on all net payments made by companies you refer for the first 180 days from their first payment date.

What currency are commissions paid in?

All commissions are paid in USD, as this is the currency OpenSimSim operates in. You may choose to convert these funds to a different currency in PayPal at your own expense.

Do referral codes expire?

No, referral codes do not expire.
