Once you've started to earn a sizeable referral balance the next step is getting paid. Please note that you cannot use your referral balance to purchase Premium access or any ESEA services directly. However, once you have withdrawn the balance you may use it for whatever you want.
What are the requirements for redeeming my referral balance?
- You must have at least $50 in your current balance
- Have not requested a redemption in the last 30 days (one per month allowed)
- Not currently banned
- Agree to the Referrals Terms and Conditions, which must be agreed to in order to see your current balance
- Fill out the required tax form(s).
If this is your first time redeeming, you will need to fill out one of the tax forms below. This is standard procedure for anyone receiving payments from us. As soon as you meet all of the above requirements, the last step is to simply open a new "Referral Redemption" support ticket.
For US Residents:
If you are claiming as an individual please fill out form W-8BEN here. You can find instructions on how to fill out this form here.
If you are claiming as a company/entity please fill out form W-8BEN-E here.
When will I receive my payment?
All payments are currently made via Paypal only, so make sure you have and include your PayPal account in your ticket. Please be patient while we handle your ticket, payments will usually be processed within 60 business days. Following your receipt of a referral balance payment, the next time you are able to redeem is 30 days from the date you are paid, not from the date you requested payment.
