I referred a person and they must not have used the link I sent them. But they uploaded books and started swapping. Is it too late to get my credit for referring them? If it isn't too late what do I or they need to do in order for me to get one?

I think they have to use your name when they join for you to get the credit.

you can ask them to send feedback to the team with one of three things in it:

  1. your first and last name
  2. your e-mail address associated with PBS
  3. your nickname/screen name

When your referred member* has Posted 10 books to his or her shelf, you will receive a credit.

  • You can keep track of your referrals (and if they have posted their 10 books yet) by clicking the My Referrals link at the top of your My Account page.

If a member you referred does not appear on your "My Referral" page

  • this means that he or she did not identify you properly (using your PBS Nickname or PBS User Email) as the referrer at the time of registration.
  • The referred member can write to us at any time, using the feedback area of the site, to ask for the referral to be recorded. We need one of the following in order to record your referral after the fact:
    • PBS nickname
    • PBS User Email
    • or full name and city/state
  • The referred member must be the one to contact us with this information.
