  3. Program Overview
    • Invitation Process
      • Referrers can invite friends using the Vested interface, utilizing a referral link and sharing tools provided on the Vested platform.
    • Successful Referral Criteria
      • A “Successful Referral” is a new individual (“referee”) who has signed up to Vested using the unique designated link or code from your invitation and meets the below criteria:
        • The individual must deposit at least $50 to their US Stocks brokerage account within 30 days of signing up or invest in one of the Indian investment products (Edge, INR Bonds, or Solar) within 30 days of signing up.
      • This offer is valid only for new individual accounts with Vested. Vested is not responsible for your referees’ incorrect entry or other failures to meet the standards of a “Successful Referral.” You cannot earn referral rewards for referring individuals who already have a Vested account or those referred by someone else. Accounts opened with the same Tax ID/PAN or mobile numbers of existing Vested accounts are not considered Successful Referrals. If two or more individuals invite the same individual via Vested’s referral program, Vested will credit the referral bonus to the person whose referral link was used to complete the signup process.
    • Referral bonuses
      • Referrers will earn bonuses on the deposits and investments their Successful Referrals make. The bonuses will be credited in USD for global products and INR for Indian products to your Vested account. Referral bonuses include:
        • 15% of the trade fees paid by a Succesful Referral on each trade for US Stocks (in USD).
        • 0.15% of the deposits made by a Succesful Referral in the US Stocks account. This is applicable only on deposits made via our partner banks (HDFC).
        • 0.15% of the investments made by a Succesful Referral in fixed-term plans for Edge (in INR).
        • 0.15% of the investments made by a Succesful Referral in INR Bonds (in INR).
        • 1.5% of the investments made by a Succesful Referral in Solar (in INR). The referral bonus will only be credited after the project in which the Successful Referral has invested goes live.
    • Redeeming the referral earnings
      • Earnings can be redeemed for a minimum of 15 USD or 1,000 INR.
      • A referrer can earn a maximum of 1500 USD per year from global products and a maximum of 1,50,000 INR per year from Indian products for the investments made by their Successful Referrals.
      • Redemption requests for USD will be processed in batches with a maximum of 150 USD per batch if the redemption amount exceeds 150 USD, with each batch being processed once a day.
      • Redemption requests for USD will be made to your US Stocks brokerage account.
      • Redemption requests for INR will be made to the bank account details you provided in the KYC process for Edge, INR Bonds, or Solar and will be determined by the first KYC process you complete for Edge, INR Bonds, or Solar.
