FXOpen, an Australia-headquartered forex brokerage, said it will change the terms of its referral program to require partners to get paid only after they have referred at least three new customers.Moreover, commissions under $10 will not be paid, nor displayed on the partner’s balance. Amounts below $10 will be displayed as commissions on hold. The changes will come into effect as of 3 April, 2017.
“In order to boost the development and improve the quality of our partneship program, we decided to put in place the minimum benchmark on the number of referrals,” the broker noted.
