How to earn referral rewards and affiliate commissions on OKEx
A guide to earning rewards and commissions with the OKEx Referral and OKEx Affiliate programs
Despite their popularity today, cryptocurrency markets are relatively new to the financial space. In order to support their growth, OKEx offers the OKEx Referral and OKEx Affiliate programs, which encourage users to promote the crypto space and spread awareness in exchange for rewards and commissions. New sign-ups are also welcomed with the OKEx Rewards program, which allows beginners to claim up to $80 by completing various tasks and activities.
This guide will be helpful for users who want to earn rewards and commissions for inviting their contacts to join OKEx and start trading crypto.
OKEx Referral program
With the OKEx Referral program, you can earn rewards by inviting your friends to create accounts on OKEx and start trading. As one of your referrals completes the following three tasks within 180 days of their registration, you will earn $10 rewards for each:
- Buy crypto: You will receive $10 in BTC when your referee completes the purchase of at least $100 worth of crypto in their first order.
- Deposit crypto: You will get a 10 USDT rebate card when your referee passes KYC verification level 2 and makes a first deposit of at least $100 worth in crypto.
- Trade: You will receive $10 in BTC when your referee completes the trading milestones, which will earn them $50 in BTC.
Note that the referral rewards will be credited to your primary account only on the following day at 6:00 pm (UTC +8).
OKEx Affiliate program
The OKEx Affiliate program gives you the opportunity to earn free Bitcoin and a minimum of 30% commission when any of your referred users trade on OKEx. You can become an OKEx affiliate if 10 of your invited friends have completed the first task on the Rewards homepage: Earn $10 in BTC.
As an OKEx affiliate, you are entitled to a number of benefits apart from trading commissions. For instance, you will receive support from OKEx regarding in-depth content and community collaborations, such as airdrops and AMA sessions.
Moreover, you will become a regular partner of OKEx at various conferences and annual events, which will also help you expand your network. Finally, you will also receive special gifts for local and international festivals celebrated by OKEx.
Please note, however, that once you become an OKEx affiliate, you are no longer eligible to receive rewards via the OKEx Referral program.
The steps below will help you get started with both the OKEx Referral and the OKEx Affiliate programs.
Step 1: Review the rewards available on OKEx
Go to the OKEx homepage, navigate to "More" in the top menu and click on Rewards under "Others" tab.
Beginners at OKEx can earn rewards of up to $80 by completing the following tasks:
- Earn $10 in BTC by purchasing at least $100 worth of crypto in the first order.
- Get a rebate card of USDT 20 after depositing at least $100 worth of crypto in the first order.
- Earn $50 in BTC for trading after completing level 2 of KYC verification and finishing trading tasks.
To help beginners familiarize themselves with the trading environment, they are given 5 BTC in a Demo Trading account when they click Start Trading on the Rewards homepage.
Step 2: Go to the Referral section and invite friends
After you have reviewed the available rewards on OKEx, click More and choose Referral under "Others" from the OKEx homepage.
Scroll down below the "Daily Missions" section and click on Invite friends now.
This will open a new page, where you can enter your friends' email addresses to send them invites. Alternatively, you can also copy your referral link and share it with your friends directly.
Step 3: Become an OKEx affiliate and earn commissions
As an OKEx affiliate, you can earn commissions when 10 users have registered using your invitation link. You can earn up to 40% commissions from the trading activities of your invitees in three ways:
- 30% trading commission from new users.
- 30% trading commission from recurring users.
- 10% trading commission from sub-affiliates. This applies when your invitees become OKEx affiliates.
