Key Terms to Remember when becoming a Forex Affiliate 

Here are some terms you’ll run into in these spaces:  


Rebates are ongoing commissions based on trading volumes. You receive commissions on every trade your referral makes for their lifetime on the platform. That’s usually a few pips per standard lot, a fixed amount per traded lot, or a percentage spread.


CPA stands for Cost Per Acquisition or Cost Per Action, depending on the broker. Pay close attention to how your brokers use the term “action” in a Forex affiliate CPA program. This ‘action’ will get you varying commission structures but usually depends on your referral making a particular deposit amount besides simply opening an account.  


Cost Per Lead. Some referral programs pay for referring potential users who then provide their contact details or sign up for a free demo account, even if they don’t open a live account or make any deposits. 

Sub-affiliate / multi-tier commission  

A multi-tier commission is what you get for referrals who refer others to your partner broker. You can use this method to supplement your income if your broker has a reliable system. However, it can become tough to track, so most brokers won’t offer it.
