Affiliates program - does it pay out when new users sign up for a free blog?

I have a quick question about the affiliates plugin and how it integrates with Pro Sites.
I have installed and set up the affiliates so that it pays out £2.50 for 1 month sign ups, £5 for 3 month signups and £10 for anual signups.

I have 2 questions that I'm unclear on:
1) Are these payment amounts just 1 time fees? For example, I don't want to pay out £2.50 every month for a referral - just once :slight_smile:
2) Do the refferal fees happen when a user signs up for a free site? This would be pretty bad if it did as it would leave me out of pocket - I'm assuming it's only for paid subscriptions, but want to check before it goes live!

Thanks,
Sam

    Hello Sam,

    1) Are these payment amounts just 1 time fees? For example, I don't want to pay out £2.50 every month for a referral - just once

    You will paid only once - you are paying for one paid customer, for singup - its not working like recurring payments :slight_smile:

    2) Do the refferal fees happen when a user signs up for a free site? This would be pretty bad if it did as it would leave me out of pocket - I'm assuming it's only for paid subscriptions, but want to check before it goes live!

    No, it works only for paid singups - there is no option for free sites option (it doesn't process "No, I will continue with free blog").

    kind regards,
    Kasia
