So recently i have been advertising Quidco's referral program (On this reddit and a few other UK based forums) along with a few decent cashback offers running at the moment which were very good deals at the time for cashback upon trial signups.

I woke up this morning to my account being blocked. An email soon followed essentially stating how people from countries such as Poland had begun signing up to this offer via my referral link therefore i was liable (which i still don't agree with but there you have it).

Essentially due to the amount of referrals i generated instead of manually detecting whether someone not eligible to have an account was attempting to sign up they just fully blocked my account permanently.

On engaging with them via email it was clear whatever i said would not undo the ban and they refused to discuss the matter over phone or chat.

Very poor from them in my opinion and my warning to you guys would to be to stay clear of promoting Quidco on this subreddit with a referral link as the same could apply to you if you receive too many referrals.

I've posted this on a subreddit and its not been just me having these issues a lot of people replied saying they had been banned recently too for no reason.

Referral links are just that, for you to give out to your personal referrals. Perhaps friends, perhaps family etc What they aren't expecting you to do is try and get loads of randoms to sign up for monetary gain.

If you want that then reach out to their PR and become an affiliate, then you can promote however you want and get as many signups as you like!

Understand what you're saying but if that's the way they think why isn't there a cap on how many "personal" referrals you can make?

Also people from the UK are getting banned aswell not just people which are not eligible to have an account in the first place.

yeah I imagine people in the UK will be dropped as well. Referral link trains and all that isn't what the quidco referral scheme is designed for.

Honestly, Signup to promote Quidco or TopCashback via Awin as you can then promote how you want and get paid per signup instead of having to wait for someone to make a purchase before you get the kickback ;)

Cashback Sites as well as lots of online sign up sites do tend to state in terms and conditions words to effect residents of UK only, good idea for people to state within sign up referrals offer only available to Uk residents

I think they are correct.
If I would have a company and started with referral program people who share it randomly would piss me off.
You supposed to share it with family, friends etc.

I am on their site with that one!
