Yes there is - there is a limit of 32 referrals. Note as well that you dont get space for inviting, you get space for the invitee accepting and joining Dropbox using a unique computer

Hello
Would you check if the friend you invited joined Dropbox?
Your friend must sign up for Dropbox to receive additional capacity.

I have invited a friend and he has installed Dropbox both on his cellphone and computer, but I still didn't get the additional 500MB.

You can review the status of your referrals on your Plan page.

Hi @mokh, are you certain that they've installed the Dropbox desktop application, under the same email address you invited them to?

 

As per @Rich, try checking the status of your referral and let us know what you see!

Thank you @Jay & @Rich. Seems the invitee has not installed the Dropbox PC via the invite link.
