How to sign up for Google Apps referral program in India

Are you looking for a genuine and reliable referral program? Google has started offering Google Apps referral program in India, which is a nice way to make some money online for Indian publishers.

Since a long time, Google has been offering a referral program to promote Google Apps. Unfortunately, this program was not available for Indian publishers. Here is a good news - the Google Apps referral program is now available in India.

How does it work?

If you are a blogger or an online publisher, you can recommend Google Apps to your readers. If anyone sign up for Google Apps using your referral program, you will get a referral commission from Google. As of now, the referral commission is US$7.50 per sign up.

If you like to sign up for Google Apps for yourself, you may use the following referral link of mine:

Terms & Conditions

Here are some highlights from the terms and conditions:

1. You can distribute your referral link through emails, provided the email includes options to opt out of further emails.

2. You should not offer any bribe/incentives/rewards for using your referral link.

3. You should not use Google name or logo while promoting this referral program.

4. Referral fees is paid monthly through wire transfer.

5. There is no cookie tracking. You will earn referral commission only if the users sign up directly by following your referral link.

6. The referral commission is not Per Sign Up. It is "Per User" in each account signed up using your referral link. For example, Person A signed up for a Google Apps account using your referral link. You won't get any commission at this time. When Person A creates "users" in his Google Apps account, you will get the commission for each user created by Person A.

7. You are eligible for commission only for a maximum of 100 users in each referral account. In the above example, if person A adds 200 users to his Google Apps account, you will get the commission only for the first 100 users in that account. However, if another person sign up using your referral link, he can also add up to 100 users that gives you commission.

8. Commission will be paid only for the users which are paid for atleast 120 days.

If you like to sign up for Google Apps and want a coupon code, you may approach the bloggers who are using the referral program. They will be happy to share their coupon code with you since that will make them eligible for referral commission. I will be happy to share my coupon codes with 2 people.
