Two referrals with same IP vs. storage bonus

Two referrals with same IP vs. storage bonus

New member | Level 2

Hi, I would like to invite my parents for dropbox, but they are sharing one computer, it means they have same IP address. Will I get the refferal storage bonus for one of them or for both, if they set up an account?

The terms of the referral scheme are that each new account needs to be downloaded and set up on a unique device. So, you MAY get one but its unlikely you'll get both.

They have a separate user accounts on Mac, that means that the app will be downloaded and installed twice, since each user has their own apps. Would that change anything?

No because the requirement is a unique device as I said I'm afraid. So because it isnt a unique device (i.e. they are both using it) it does not meet the requirments.

No. Each referral needs to be installed on a unique comptuer.

Ok, so one of them needs to install the app on some other computer first. Just for the sake of activation. And log in to dropbox on the shared computer later.

Yes - and on a different WiFi network if you can as that can trigger referral fails
