    So I had a thought - what happens if you refer someone, whether that be to a hub or who signs up and writes, but they have HP Ads activated but you don't? Does that mean you are pretty much giving up on the referral income because you can't take the HP Ads income? Or what would happen if you had filled out all the forms etc for HP Ads but you just hadn't activated them on your hubs, would you then get the revenue from referrals?

    Since you need to submit tax information for HP Ads, you wouldn't be able to earn from your referrals unless you'd also activated the HP Ads, I believe.

      Thanks WryLit, I have submitted all the information but I just don't want to activate the ads right now....it's not like I am going to earn a lot from referrals but it's definitely something to think about if I am going to lose out anyway!

    The way it works with referrals is that your affiliate ID will be running inside the ads on a certain percentage of page impressions on another Hubber's hubs. For that to occur, your affiliate account has to be active.

    What I have noticed is that, once your HP ad program is activated, it will continue to run on your referral's pages (with your own aff id on your share of impressions) even if you turn off HP Ads on your account.

      Yes, on HubPages' share.

      On yours, no, it won't.

        Then, I owe you 12 cents Jason, because my reports says it did.

        Another bug?

          12 cents? Was this on a day that you absolutely did not have the Program on whatsoever?

          If so, please contact payments@ and Marina can investigate.

    I just don't see how the affiliate ID for a non-active account could run on another Hubber's page impressions.

      If not then, who benefits from your 10% share of impressions?

      Your referral is entitled to 40%, HP is entitled to 30% and you are entitled to 10% of the pages’ impressions. Does it mean that in 10% of your referral pages’ views there will be no display of HP program ads, but instead will display your adsense ads?

        I wonder from where you got this info. As per this (your post) the remaining 20% is unaccountable?

        Best Regards

        Referrer getting a share:
        - Hubber being referred: 60%
        - HubPages: 30%
        - Referrer: 10%

        Referrer not getting a share:
        - Hubber being referred: 60%
        - HubPages: 40%

          And then, there is the 12% thing somewhere. smile
