We do this periodically based on current promotions. But YES. The key is, in our opinion, to but restrictions on such an offer. IE, what we do usually is offer these bonues's for trusted clients who have been with us more than 120 days. That takes care of someone signing up and then trying to pull something by ordering again.
We also do special situations with our largest customers where we offer RESIDUAL commissions ever month for the life of accounts. IE, the normal customer we host stays for years so we reward customers for years for the referral.
There are a lot of ways you can do it.
