Invite a new corporate domain – 10 credits per new domain

Invite a user from a new corporate domain (e.g. acmecorp.com). Check the ‘invite a new user’ section for different ways through which you can add someone that is not yet on Rock.

A user will be considered a new corporate domain user under the rock referral program when:

  • They are not signing up with a non-corporate domain (e.g. @gmail.com, @yahoo.com)
  • The corporate domain does not have any matching accounts that already exist on Rock.

You will receive 10 credits once a new corporate domain has fully registered an account in addition to the single credit received for the invite. The reward for a new domain might be slightly delayed if the new corporate domain is not directly recognized in our system.

Additional signups from that domain that you directly invite will reward you 1 credit. 10 credits will be awarded for each new corporate domain you bring in, and can be earned unlimited times as long as the domain is not registered.

You receive the credit reward only the first time a user upgrades to PRO, and it applies both to the monthly and yearly memberships. If a user renews the following year you will not receive additional credits.

  • You receive 50 credits for any invited user that upgrades to PRO, even if they’re within the same domain.
  • Switching from monthly to yearly memberships will not award additional credits.
  • If a user upgrades from PRO to TEAMS, you will receive the reward credits for a TEAMS upgrade (if the user has not had the plan yet).
  • If a user downgrades from TEAMS to PRO and has not been on PRO before, you will still receive the 50 credits.

You receive 50 credits for every individual user that you invited who upgrades to the PRO plan. PRO plan upgrade rewards are given out once per invited user.
