Frequently Asked Questions

by Referral Partners

Wait... So what is this?
The CloudGopher Referral Program is a revenue sharing program where anyone who has used CloudGopher services (that's you!) can earn money when another customer makes a qualifying purchase of a CloudGopher service using your referral code.

There is no cost to you to participate!
But I'm not a CloudGopher customer - can I still refer?
We prefer to have customers as referrers because those who have used CloudGopher are more likely to understand its advantages and are better able to describe them to others.

However, if you are not a customer and would like to become a referrer, please contact support@cloudgopher.com
Can I sign up for the rewards program and use it myself to get $5.00 off?
Nope, sorry. We'll disqualify any purchases you make that are related to your email accounts. See the Referral Program Agreement for details on how the program works and restrictions.

But, feel free to use your link to automatically get 10% off your repeat purchases!
Why doesn't CloudGopher just reduce the price instead of having a referral program?
Like any new service, we need help getting the word out, and frankly we'd rather reward our customers than pay big advertising companies for the same results.

We're going to pay someone for exposure - it might as well be you, right?
Okay... how does this actually work?
It’s dead simple: You share the referral link (found on your Referral Dashboard ), and for every person who clicks the link and completes a qualifying CloudGopher purchase, you make $5.00, paid via PayPal! (Read the full Referral Program Agreement here.)
So I don’t have to give you my bank account information?
Nope! As long as you can receive PayPal payments, you’ll get paid. There’s nothing else you need to do.

Pro tip: Make sure the PayPal email address we have on file is the one you want payments to go to by visiting your Referral Dashboard
What if I don't have a PayPal account?
No problem! We'll send money via PayPal to your email address. You can easily accept the money and sign up for PayPal then. Or, if you'd like, you can Sign up for PayPal now (opens in a new browser tab)
Where will the money go?
We will send any earned referral fees via PayPal to the destination account email address we have on file from the first time you used CloudGopher.

You can use the Referral Dashboard to change, update, or verify the email address to which we will send PayPal payments.
What if I want the payment to be sent to a different email address?
No problem! Just visit your Referral Dashboard and update the payment address. Note that changes made after we start processing payments (typically in the first 15 days of each month) won't take effect until the following month.
What if I want the payment to be donated to charity instead?
If you have an email address where you know the charity accepts PayPal payments, you can update your payment address on your Referral Dashboard to have us send the payment to the charity of your choice!

If you don't have the email address of your favorite charity, no problem! Just go to PayPal's Charity Finder and find your favorite charity. Then, copy and paste the URL of the charity's PayPal page into the "A donation will be sent via PayPal to:" section. (Don't worry if it's not an email address - it just has to be a valid PayPal destination)
Can I have my payment "wired" or in the form of a gift card instead?
Sorry, at this time payment is made by PayPal only.
What if I don't want to be part of this referral program?
Just keep your unique referral link to yourself and don't share it with anyone. It's as simple as that!
What’s the fine print: do I really get $5.00 every time someone uses my referral code to make a qualifying purchase on CloudGopher.com?
Of course our lawyer has gathered all of the nitty-gritty details in the Referral Program Agreement but bottom line is yes, you’ll get $5 for each qualifying purchase made using your referral code. A qualifying purchase does not include:
  • A free, trial, or test use of our product;
  • Your self-use of our product;
  • Special pricing given to bulk or wholesale buyers (usually a school or large business).

Some things to note:
  • You are limited to a total of $50,000 in payments under this program;
  • Payments could take up to 45 days after the end of the month the qualifying purchase was made; this allows us time for processing and to help prevent abuse;
  • PayPal may charge a small fee to the recipient of each payment we make;
  • We reserve the right to cancel your referral code and withhold any payments if we decide that you have breached the Referral Program Agreement
How do I know when someone uses my code?
You can check your Referral Dashboard any time to see the number of clicks and purchases attributed to your referral code, plus we’ll send you a report for each month we send payments to your payment address.
When will I get paid?
You'll receive your payments within 45 days of the end of the month where a purchase is made using your referral code. For example, if someone you refer uses your code to pay and completes their transfer by June 20, then we will transfer your earned payment by August 15 (e.g., 45 days after the end of the month where the services were purchased).
Why do I have to wait until the following month to get paid?
Two reasons:
  1. No fee is earned if the new customer later receives any sort of refund. It typically takes 30 to 60 days for refunds to be requested and processed.
  2. Since PayPal charges a flat fee for each payment, it benefits you to aggregate the payments into one large payment instead of many small ones.
I have thousands of followers I know will use this and I’m gonna get rich... Are you going to send me a 1099 when tax time comes?
PayPal handles this, and will send you a 1099 if required (usually if you make over $600).
The provided referral code link points to the CloudGopher home page, but I'd like to be able to link to a different page for a blog I'm writing. How can I still get credit?
You can "construct" your own referral link by appending ?rc=[your-5-digit-code] to any valid CloudGopher page url.

For example, if your referral link is https://www.cloudgopher.com/r/PJ8T7, but you would like to share a link to the How to Change Gmail Address article, sharing the following link will ensure your friends get their discount and you will get credit for the referral. (Right-click and open in private browsing window for demo):

https://www.cloudgopher.com/solved-how-to-change-gmail-address?rc=PJ8T7

Important Note: Sharing the above link in a Facebook or Twitter post will not display the same promtional image and text that sharing your normal link will. Further, while unlikely, it's possible the URL of a page may change or move in the future, so construct these links at your own risk.
What happens if someone I referred uses “ad blocking” software? Will I get credit for the purchase?
CloudGopher uses cookies to track the use of referral codes and give the user a discount based on the referral code. If a user has cookies disabled or uses other technology to interfere with our tracking, then the referral code will not be tracked, the user will not receive the discount, and you will not get credit for the purchase.
If someone I refer gets their own referral code, will I get paid for their referrals?
No, we do not offer a “multi-level” referral program.
