App Referral Program - Terms & Conditions

Following are the terms and conditions of the App Referral Program.

Important: Amazon has discontinued the App Referral Program in accordance with the terms below. The program was discontinued on June 19th, 2017. As of that date, new referrals will no longer be tracked and bonus accrual payments will be stopped. You will be issued the standard bonus for any successful referrals made prior to June 19th, 2017. All links you have shared will redirect to the App Store to download the App. However, referrals will not be tracked or accumulate toward this bonus program.

These App Referral Program Terms and Conditions are in addition to the Conditions of Use to which you also agree by using the website and the terms and conditions for the Gift Cards ("Gift Card Terms") issued by Qwikcilver Solutions Private Limited ("Qwikcilver"). To the extent the Conditions of Use are inconsistent with these terms, these terms will control with respect to the App Referral Program only.

  1. You must have a valid customer account on website.
  2. The customer you refer must click on your link and successfully complete the signup and code claim process on the same calendar day.
  3. The referred customer who registered the new account must be a new (and not a returning or existing) customer on the App. We will determine in our sole discretion whether the customer is new to the App.
  4. The referred customer must place an order worth Rs. 300 (excluding shipping, handling and gift-wrapping fees) or more on the App. Purchases of Kindle e-books and Gift Cards are not eligible; and
  5. The referred customer must not cancel the order prior to shipment and the order must not be returned or refunded.

You will receive your referral credit as an Gift Card issued by Qwikcilver ("Gift Card") via email within 30 days after the referred customer's order has shipped.

The Gift Card will be valid for one year from the date it is sent to your email address (which is registered at i.e. the date of issuance of such Gift Card. Your Gift Card balance will be automatically applied to your purchases on (app or website) at checkout in the order in which they expire (i.e. first to expire will be applied first). See the Gift Card Terms for additional details.

You cannot use Gift Cards to buy additional gift cards or to pay shipping, handling, taxes, or any other applicable transaction costs. We may also specify certain products that are ineligible for payment using Gift cards earned under these terms from time to time.

Gift Cards are issued to a single Amazon account at our sole discretion and cannot be reloaded, resold, transferred for value, or redeemed for cash, except to the extent required by law.

Participation in the App Referral Program may require you to submit personal information about you and the customers you refer, such as name and email address.

Any information collected from you or your referred customers as part of the App Referral Program will be subject to Amazon's Privacy Notice.

If you participate in an Amazon affiliate marketing program, such as Associates, you will not receive Gift cards for any transaction for which you receive affiliate advertising fees.
