How does it work?
Invite friends and receive cash towards your next trade. For each friend that signs up using your referral link, you'll both get $10 when they deposit and trade at least $100 worth of stock! The friend you refer cannot be an existing Wealthsimple Trade client.
I referred a friend before this program started - can I count this as a referral now?
While we certainly appreciate you spreading the word about Wealthsimple Trade, we cannot honour referrals made before this program was launched.
I forgot to use the referral link when signing up - is there a way to apply this anyway?
We get it - it happens!
If you or the person you referred forgot to use the referral link, no worries! The referred client can simply add the code retroactively in their WS Trade profile. This retroactive referral will only work within 30 days of signing up.
The referred client can click on the gift icon at the top of the main screen within the Trade app. Then, click "I was referred by someone" near the bottom of the screen. From there, you will be asked to enter the unique code from your referrer's link. This code is a series of numbers that can be found at the end of the referral link's URL.
Please note, there is a maximum amount of $1000 (200 referrals) that can be claimed per profile.
