2. Post your affiliate URL.
3. Redeem referral points for products or cash back
Referral vs. Regular DX points
Referral DX points are the same as regular DX points earned by purchases, but are collected differently. When you make purchases for yourself, DX points are assigned at a rate of 1 point for every $10 spent (including all shipping charges). Referral points work similarly, but do not round off at every $10. When your referred customer completes an order, both of you will receive DX points. The customer receives DX points based on the normal rate, and you, the referrer, gets the amount of DX points equivalent to the order total times your affiliation level’s ‘DX Point’ rate.
For example: Mary, who you referred, spent a total of $32.69 on merchandises and shipping fees and you are on our Standard affiliation program level (thus 10% DX rate). Mary gets 3 DX points and you as the referrer get 3.27 DX points. Notice how you also get the decimal points for each referral’s purchases. Without these extra points, small orders would be meaningless to you as the referrer.
Note that refunds sent to referred orders will also cause corresponding points to be deducted.
Since referral points are the same as regular DX points, you can use them for all sorts of things like free express shipping upgrades, redeem them for free products and accessories or get cash back. A cash back reward will be sent via PayPal. DX points earned are subject to a minimum limit of 60 days to allow for refunds or other issues. After the specified period, the DX points can be used to apply for cash back at a rate of 1$ per 10 DX points (e.g. 10 points = 1$ cash). You can apply for cash back with as little as 10 points in your account.
Cash back equivalent values
DX points can be used for free express shipping upgrades or product and accessory purchases, but as an affiliate it is the cash back reward program that is the most valuable. Here is the table for cash back values:
|Level||DX Points||Cash Back Equivalent Amount||Points Needed To Reach This Level…|
|Starter||$0.375 per $50 in referrals (0.75% commission)|
|Standard||10%||$0.50 per $50 in referrals (1.0% commission)||25 accumulated points|
|Premium||15%||$0.75 per $50 in referrals (1.5% commission)||200 accumulated points|

Commission rates seem low?
If you own a blog, popular forum, or even a regular website you can easily earn hundreds of dollars a day by posting some of our top selling products. Tip: begin looking on websites that generate a lot of page views and posts like FatWallet.com and SlickDeals.net.
Don’t be fooled by others who offer 5%, 10%, 20% or more. Your commission will be zero when their products don’t sell. We can hike our prices and offer a 50% commission rate but it makes no sense to do that. We want to offer great service and products at reasonable prices and at the same time reward you for referring us to others who will also find our offers appealing.
To keep things simple, as in the case of regular DX points, all shipping fees are included in calculating the referral DX points. Other offers will deduct any shipping charges from your commissions.
The starter program is there just to get you warmed up allowing you to more easily move up to the standard level or higher.
