How the Refer a Friend Program Works

XM’s refer-a-friend program rewards both you and the referred friend for every friend you refer. The paid cash can be used for XM trading as trading margin, or it can be withdrawn and cashed without trading, so it is a benefit that is easier to use than a “bonus” that cannot be withdrawn.

You will be paid $25-$35 in cash depending on the number of people you refer.

In order to be paid, the referred friend must meet all of the following conditions:


Open a standard or micro account. Zero accounts are not eligible.

Deposit of funds

Deposit your own funds into the account.

3lots or more trading

Trade 3 lots (3 standard lots) or more of any FX currency pair, gold or silver.

The more you refer, the more you earn

The reward generated by the friend referral program will increase as the number of people introduced increases.

Rewards will be deposited into MyWallet

Every time you earn rewards generated through the friend program and IB, they will be credited to your MyWallet. MyWallet is a feature that was implemented in 2020, and it is a system in which money is deposited into MyWallet every time you earn rewards generated via IB. You can now trade with rewards by depositing money into your MyWallet → trading account.

affiliate program

XM has an affiliate program in addition to friend referrals. XM Affiliate is a system that has existed for a longer time than the friend referral program. The following article introduces how XM Affiliate works.

The main difference between the friend referral program and XM Affiliate is the timing of receiving rewards. In the friend referral program, a reward of $25 to $35 will be paid for each referral when the referred person opens an account, makes a deposit, and trades 3 lots or more. With XM Affiliates, rewards are generated when the referred person makes a transaction, so the rewards will continue to be earned forever.

Which is better, referring a friend or being an affiliate?

Is it better to work on friend referrals or XM affiliate marketing? Affiliates are recommended for this. Affiliates have the advantage of being able to expect permanent income because if they continue doing business with them, they will receive a permanent commission. In the case of friend referrals, it often ends up being a one-off income.
