Terms & Conditions
By participating in PayPal’s "Invite Friends" promotion (the "Program"), you agree to the following terms and conditions (the "Terms"). PayPal may at any time and in its sole discretion, without prior notice, terminate, cancel, suspend or modify the Program or these terms.
The Program allows you to invite people you know to sign up for a Canadian account with PayPal. You can earn a reward when friends you invite to join PayPal through the Program sign up and complete an Eligible Transaction (defined below). If you are the person inviting friends to join PayPal, you are a "referrer" under these terms, and if you are a person who receives an invitation, you are a "referee".
Eligibility and Overview
You may participate in this Program as a referrer until the Program is terminated or modified by PayPal. If you refer a referee prior to PayPal’s termination or modification of the program, you will still be eligible to earn the reward described below even if the referee does not fulfill the Reward Criteria (defined below) before such termination or modification.
To be eligible to earn rewards through the Program, each referrer and referee must have a Canadian personal PayPal account in good standing (“Valid Account”) at the time of participation through when his/her reward(s) are issued.
A referrer may refer a referee via the referral mechanism in the PayPal app (or on PayPal.ca). The referrer can claim a reward for a maximum of 10 referees per calendar year that satisfy the following “Reward Criteria”: (i) access and complete the PayPal sign up process; (ii) link his/her bank, or Visa or MasterCard credit card or debit card to their PayPal account; (iii) verify their cell number linked to their PayPal account; (iv) complete an Eligible Transaction (defined below) and (v) Eligible Transaction must be completed within the first 30 days of completing the PayPal sign up process.
An “Eligible Transaction” means: (a) an online PayPal checkout payment of $5.00 CAD or more using the referee’s new Valid PayPal account that is marked as “complete” in the referee’s account; or (b) a person-to-person payment of $5.00 CAD or more using the “Send Money” feature within PayPal (sent to anyone other than the referrer) using the referee’s new Valid PayPal account that is marked as ‘received’ by the recipient.
Transactions that have been cancelled, refunded, or reversed by either the referee, referrer, or the seller do not count as Eligible Transactions.
You may only refer family and personal friends and acquaintances. Additionally, you must not publish or distribute the invitation to participate that you received from PayPal in public locations (online or otherwise) where the audience is likely to include people who are not your family or personal friends/acquaintances. If you do so, PayPal may disqualify you from participation in the Program and any successful referrals will be void, in PayPal’s sole discretion.
Limits on Referrals: Referrers may only refer family and personal friends and acquaintances. Additionally, you must not publish or distribute the Invitation link or notifications received from PayPal containing the link online or otherwise where the audience is likely to include people who are not your family or personal friends/acquaintances. If you do so, PayPal may disqualify you from participation in the Program and any successful referrals will be void, in PayPal’s sole discretion. There is a limit of one (1) reward per referee Valid Account and ten (10) rewards per referrer Valid Account. If two or more referrers invite the same referee, PayPal will credit the reward to the person who has their Invitation accepted first, as determined in PayPal’s sole discretion. If a referrer has reached their limit of 10, referees that were referred by referee prior to reaching the limit will still be eligible to earn their Reward (defined below) provided all required steps are met and these Terms are otherwise complied with.
Reward: The reward amount is $10 CAD voucher (“Reward”) that will be automatically applied the first time a referrer or referee completes a purchase using a Valid Account (“Eligible Purchase”) while the Reward is valid and redeemable.
Eligible Purchases do not include: (1) send/receive money transactions (including those marked as a “Goods and Services” payments), (2) charitable donations, (3) purchases made using PayPal.me; (4) Visa Debit or credit card purchases made using the card directly and not through your PayPal account, (5) PayPal transaction fees, or (6) transactions made in any other currency beyond CAD. Rewards will be viewable in the “Offers” section of the referrer or referee’s Valid Account for personal accounts. The Reward must be redeemed within 90 days of referrer or referee receiving a reward, and may only be redeemed as described in these terms & conditions. Use of the Reward will be reflected on the referrer or referee’s PayPal receipt and/or in the transaction details of his/her Valid Account. Rewards should post to your account within approximately fourteen (14) days but may be available sooner.
