Dropbox Referral Link server problem

New member | Level 2

Hello,

I wonder why the dropbox referral link to refer friends is not working anymore.

[referral link removed]

There seems to be a server problem.

Can anybody help me or tell me whats going on?

Hi @KingBier - welcome to our Community and thanks for referring your friends, family and/or colleagues!

Sorry to hear you're having issues with this; let's take a look now!

Can you please generate a new one from your account's settings page through another browser and let me know if you're still having issues with this?

While we're at it, can you check your account's plan tab to see if you've reached the maximum of space you can earn through referrals?

We will be unable to apply further referral space to your account if you reach the maximum amount. Dropbox Basic users can earn 500 MB per signup while Plus and Professional users earn 1 GB per signup. In both account types the maximum number of people you can refer is 32.

If your referral links still generate an error, please send me a screenshot so I can investigate further.

Thanks so much and apologies for the lenghty reply.
