How does the 1 year limitation work?
When your referral becomes a Forge client, you receive 20% of all profits earned from that account for up to 1 year. For example, if a successful referral works with Forge for 6 months with average profits being $1,500 per month, you would receive $300 for 6 months.
If the client works with Forge for 2 years with the same profits, you would receive $300 for 12 months. The 1-year clock starts when you receive your first payment from the account you refer.
