I shared with someone on a chromebook and it's installed but I've received no credit for it, I don't understand?

Referrals are only valid when the full Dropbox client is installed on a computer. The Chromebook can't run the full Dropbox client. Instead, it uses mobile-based apps or webapps. Those do not qualify for the referral program.

Get them to install the full Dropbox client on a regular computer and you should receive the referral bonus.
