Plastiq Referral Program

Plastiq is a third-party service provider that offers additional payment methods, including credit cards. You can link your credit card to your Plastiq account and get credit card rewards through Plastiq payment. Normally, Plastiq charges a fee of 1.99-2.49% for this service.

Plastiq is introducing a new referral program. Here's how it works:
  • Share your referral link (above) with friends via email, social networks, and anywhere else you can think of.
  • Get rewarded in return for every person who registers with Plastiq via your referral link and makes a payment of at least $20.
  •  For each awesome referral, you will be able to send $400 through Plastiq without any fees.
That means if your next payment is $400 or less, there will be no service fee, and any leftover credit will rollover to your next payment. If the payment is more than $400, a service fee will only be charged on the dollar amount over $400. Let's assume an average Plastiq service fee of 2%, then it means you can save $8 by one successful referral.

These credits are called “fee-free dollars” and they’ll be saved to your account for future use. They don’t last forever, though – your balance will be reset to zero 90 days after the last time you used or earned them.

Last but not least, my Plastiq referral link is as follows. Please use it if you want to register with Plastiq. Thanks.: https://try.plastiq.com/215391
