The Fine Print

It's always easier to play by the rules when you know what they are.

New referrals only

The referred purchaser must not be a current member and cannot have previously had an iStock account or you won't receive the referral payout.

Play nice

We designed this program for personal and corporate referrals, not cash-hungry spammers. We reserve the right to revoke anyone's participation in the program if we decide at our sole discretion that you're behaving badly.

First time's the charm

You'll only earn the referral bonus for the new member's first purchase. Makes sense, no?

Give me some credit

If you select credits for your payout plan, please allow 4 days for us to credit your account. We promise, it'll be worth the wait.

We love cookies

Your referrals will need to have cookies enabled throughout the entire process so we can track them as coming from you. No cookies for them, no referral bonus for you.

Getting paid

If you've chosen the flat rate cash or % commission payout option, you can request a payout as soon as you have at least $100 USD in your account. Allow 10 days for us to process the payment.

Best before date

Your referrals must make a purchase within 30 days of clicking your referral link, or their cookie will expire and you won't get paid.

Couldn't agree more

You'll need to review and agree to the terms and conditions of the Referral Program before you start raking in the cash.

No referrals for reversals

If the referral's purchase gets reversed for any reason, you won't get paid. You know, because we didn't get paid. Imagine that.
