Qualification terms

We welcome your help in referring clients to us and reward your efforts on our behalf by paying you a commission based on your introduced clients’ initial deposit.

To qualify for a commission, (sometimes referred to as a Cost Per Acquisition, or CPA), every client you introduce to us must make a minimum deposit as outlined in the tables above. Your referred client must also have opened and closed 5 trades in order to qualify. And, as you can see from the table, CPAs vary according to the client’s country of residence.

Frequently asked questions


Can I access my performance reports?

Yes, you’ll be able to access your performance reports on our affiliate platform after you join our programme.


How long do you track prospects for?

Once a prospect clicks on your OANDA banner or link, a cookie will be dropped in their browser. Any registration within a 30-day validation period will then be recorded, unless the user clears their browser cookies. Cookies reset every time a potential client clicks on a marketing partner’s link.


How does the compensation plan work?

We have one of the most competitive CPA payment plans in the leveraged trading industry.

We pay you for each client referral that meets our qualification criteria and the commissions are structured in three tiers relating to the country your clients are in. As you can see from the tables above, within those tiers there are 3 parameters that relate to your qualified client’s initial deposit.

For countries in Tier 1, for instance, every client you introduce to us must make a minimum deposit of US$190, or equivalent amount in another currency, and close 5 trades of any type. An affiliate can earn up to US$1,000 per qualified trader depending on the client's country of residence and the amount of their first deposit. For clients in countries belonging to Tier 2 and 3, the minimum initial deposit amount is US$99.

Your commission will be calculated for the month in which a client first fulfils both these criteria. Please note that commission varies depending on the client’s country and the partner’s terms. You can find full details of our compensation plan in the above tables.


Can I refer other partners?

Yes, you can become a master partner and make referrals by agreement with your affiliate manager.


Which payment methods do you offer?

You can choose to be paid by:

  • Bank transfer

What is your payment frequency?

We pay commission monthly, in the month after it was generated. For example, if you earn commission in March, we’ll pay it in April.


Is there minimum commission payment?

Yes. If your commission balance is below USD250 in a particular month, we’ll carry it over to the next month’s balance. If your balance hasn’t reached USD250 within six months, it will become void and no longer payable.


How will you recognise clients referred by me?

Each marketing partner has a unique partnership ID. We include this in the tracking code that we assign to any marketing tool you select from our catalogue for use on your website. When a user clicks on a banner or tracking link on your site, a cookie is dropped on their computer. This tells us that the prospect was referred by you.
