OKX will assess each sub-affiliate link with immediate effect.
Links created before August 18, 2022 will be assessed from October 1, 2022.
Links created after August 19, 2022 will be assessed from the third calendar month upon link creation.

Time: 1st of each month
Metrics: number of active traders over the previous two months of each link
Rule: If active traders ≥ 5, the preset commission rate will be kept. Otherwise, the commission rate will be 0%.

In the first assessment, a link will be deleted if no invitees signed up or logged in again after over 180 days to OKX through the link.

When the link with a 0% commission rate meets the criteria once again, the original commission rate will be restored after the next assessment.

If all sub-affiliate links of a sub-affiliate are deleted, the sub-affiliate account will be closed automatically.
When the sub-affiliate closes their sub-affiliate account, the sub-affiliate won't be able to enjoy commissions. This action can't be undone, so we recommend communicating with the affiliates first.
