What is Affiliate Commission?

With our affiliate programme you can earn 15% of the value of your referred services back in commission every month. You can then use your commission to save on your 1-grid account or cash out your money once your account is settled.

Do I have to be a 1-grid customer to become an affiliate?

Yes. Affiliate commission, or commissions earned through referrals, is exclusively available to our customers.

What happens if my referrals cancel their services with 1-grid?

What can I do with my commission?

If you have an available commission balance of at least R100, you can request a withdrawal which will be credited to your 1-grid account.

How do I monitor my referrals and withdraw my commission?

Log in to your Customer Zone and hover over “Account Information”, then click on Affiliates”. Here you’ll be able to keep track of your referrals and your commission, as well as request withdrawal of your commission.
