Can you still get commission if you told someone about a campaign and they made a pledge without using your referral link? The short answer is no.
A pledge does need to be successfully tracked by Kickbooster (or authorized by the campaign owner) in order for eligible commissions to be honoured. Pledges are tracked based on the last referrer source. To earn commissions on any pledges you referred, the pledge must be made through your unique Affiliate link.
If a pledge was made through your referral link, but didn't show up on your dashboard, please refer to this article.
