[Updated 26/1/2012] Referral Plugin Beta
« on: January 23, 2012, 07:34:48 pm »
This plugin Encourage the user to share our website to others to increase the site traffic

On every successful registration using the below example link, user will get an offer to make the ad as premium.

http://example.com/user/register?&ref=111

This referral is purely based on the ip and cookie if the referral is already made on that ip and cookie that referral will be Invalid

Re installation required for new update

How does this work exactly? I installed it can see settings in the admin panel, but then what ?

Does something appear on an item page or account page for registered users only ?

Also the values set in the plugin control - are they values for actual monetary rewards or are they internal credits ?

I see where it is now - I like the idea but can the action of the new visitor be controlled; so the referral is awarded to the existing user only in the event the new visitors performed an action like buying credits ?

Otherwise the cost could escalate out of control for paying referals with no purchase on your site.....

Cost per action is fine - but open ended cheque book for cost per referal is a little bit iffy :-)

Great promise in this plugin tho :-)

i have been waiting for this to come. Thanx Rajasekar. i think this plugin requires Paypal Enabled, right? Now does the user get income for only referring Users or paid Adverts?

If it is for users only, then its not appropriate. If paid adverts, thumbs up

Hi Raja,

Nice plugin! I just installed it and have been playing with it. Regarding integration with the PayPal plugin, that would be a very nice feature, as you wouldn't have to send any checks to anyone. Rather, you just give them credit that they can use for posting ads on your site.

Integration with the PayPal plugin would be very easy, as all you'd have to do is update the wallet amount. Just update the field f_amount within the table _t_paypal_wallet:)

Jesse, Chapman, trains - Cant you guys team up and atleast make it integrate with paypal?

This is a good plugin but it would be better if The Referrer earns when the User pays, or item is marked as premiium or paid by the Admin?

Can we expect anything good?

Thanks
======================================================
another thing is it does not display top earners' name in the Admin and the main Page. i suggest if you display top Earners, there should be something/link to tell the viewer that they can earn also. otherwise, it looks great in the user panel
==================================

What could be a nice idea is that the credit earned by the referals of a visitor can be used to get premium ads for free.

like refer 10 people & win 1$/€ of credit to be used on the site.

But in this case we need to filter autosurf websites & all.
