How do I refer friends?
Use your personal referral link and share it with friends. When your friend signs up using your unique referral link, our system will tie that new user sign-up to your account. Referral links will only be valid as long as the promotion is running.
Is there a limit to the referrals I can make?
There is no limit to the amount of invites you can send out, but you can receive a maximum of 100 free shares for your referrals.
How do I earn a referral bonus?
To receive a referral bonus, your friend must use your unique referral link to open and fund their investment account for a minimum of $250. Once the account is approved by our Investor Experience team, both you and your friend will receive one free share.
When will I receive my referral bonus?
You will receive your shares as soon as your referral is approved, which can take up to a maximum of 30 days to process. The share will be provided into both parties’ investment accounts. Keep in mind, your friend must fund their account with a minimum of $250 and pass KYC / AML checks before it can be deemed a successful referral.
Will I be taxed on referral bonuses?
If you received stocks through our referral program of $600 or more, it will be reported as miscellaneous income on your StartEngine consolidated 1099. Customers with referral shares valued at less than $600 may not have this reported as miscellaneous income on their StartEngine consolidated 1099. If you sell the shares you receive through our referral program, it will be reported just like any other stock sale in your account.
What type of shares will I receive through this referral program?
The type of share you receive will vary depending on availability.
