This feature is now available to all users. Have fun <3

How does this work?

It's fairly easy: Just go to your Dashboard, head over to Referrals and set it up - you can customize which page your URL should lead users to and customize their appearance to maximise effectiveness.

ℹ️
Depending on your agreement with ScootKit, you may be able to enable features such a Free PRO-Trial for users, a customized landing page or a Free-25-Member-Requirement-Skip for users.

After that users will be able to use your link: After clicking on it, we'll save your referral in a cookie (well technically we save it in our session cookie, so no new cookie will be set). If they add a new server, we save your referral in our database associated with the server and register a referral. 30 days after that, we check if the server is still actively using SCNX and if yes, we'll award you the 0.25€ commission (or any other amount agreed upon).
For every upgrade the server buys (free upgrades do unfortunately not count) within the first year after using your referral, you'll receive 15% (or any other percentage agreed upon) of the purchase price (without taxes & shipping fees). Upgrades via Credits count as 3€ (price of a credit). This usually means: If a server upgrades for one month to active guild, you'll receive 0,45€ (for PRO: 0,90€) - if a server pre-pays for a year, you'll receive 4,95€ (or 9,90€ accordingly). Please note the grace period for these commissions.

To get the money, you need to create an SCNX Organisation and enable payouts - only takes two minutes. After having done that, you can pay out anytime in your organization dashboard via these payout-methods.  

Referrals can not be applied to servers already using SCNX. Servers that have used SCNX in one point in the past won't be able to use your referral code.

Default Commission-Rates

Item Rate Grace-Period Note
For each server added 0.25€ 30 days Only servers using SCNX activly after 30 days count as refferred
Commission for Server-Upgrades 15% 15 days for comissioned servers, only first year

Grace Period for different payment methods

Grace-Period for newly added servers is always 30 days. The server needs to be actively using SCNX in order for your commission to be granted.

⚠️
Currently, we won't enforce payment-method-specific grace periods. All commissions for Upgrades have a grace-period of 15 days, it does not matter what payment-method the user uses.

Due to the different rules for chargebacks and refunds, we have different Grace-Periods for payment methods. You won't receive a commission, if a payment is refunded or the buyer starts a chargeback.

  • Creditcard: 14 Days
  • PayPal: 30 Days
  • SEPA-Direct-Debit: 42 Days
  • Other payment methods: 7 Days
  • Payment with SCNX Credits (if payment method of these credits can not be determined): 30 Days

Please note that these grace periods are only for reducing the risks of chargebacks. If a customer opens a chargeback-case against us after the grace period, we will still deduct your commission from your organization-balance.

Payout-Methods

ℹ️
Please note that for any Payout-Methods other than SCNX-Credits, we may require you to verify your identity. We'll reach out if that's required (usually if you hit a certain limit).
Method Minimal balance Transaction-Fee Timing after payout-start Notes
SCNX-Credit 2.50€ 0.00€ Instant 2.50€ / Credit
SEPA-Bank-Transfer 2.00€ 0.00€ 1-7 Working Days Only Bank-Accounts inside the EU accepting EUR supported
PayPal 2.00€ 0.50€ 1-5 Working Days PayPal-Account needs to be verified; Pay-Out in EUR

Transaction-Fees will be deducted from payed out amount. We are working on supporting even more pay-out methods. Please note that pricing may change in the future.

What do the different States of Referrals mean?

  • "Pending referrals": These referrals are in their respective grace periods and will be processed in the next 30 days
  • "Accepted referrals": These referrals have been granted and your organization has received the commission. Check your organization's payout-history for details.
  • "Invalid referrals": These referrals were invalid. Reasons for this could be Refunds, Chargebacks, Guild-Deletions and others. Unfortunately due to technical restrictions, we are unable to provide information on a case-by-case basis.
