I helped a client sign up for a new account with DreamHost through my affiliate reward URL (www.dreamhost.com/rewards.cgi?macboy). I understand that payment is issued 97 days later.
However, does the system notify the affiliate when someone has signed up from the referral? If so, how long until the affiliate is notified? And where can the affiliate view this pending reward information?
I know the referral worked because when I tried to Retroactively Refer, I got a message that said the new member had already been referred.
I see that Rewards Click-Thru info is available, but no indication as to whether a click-thru led to an actual referral that is pending approval or 97-day wait.
