How Rewards Work
Tune Tornado works with Apple's iTunes to track music you and your friends purchase as members. When we send you to iTunes to buy a song, we get a message back if you complete the purchase - that's why it's so important that you come back to Tune Tornado to initiate the purchase of any Tune Tornado song.
When the artist gets paid by iTunes, we distribute part of it as member rewards. We pay rewards if your friends buy (Level 0 referrals), and we keep paying if your friends join Tune Tornado and make their own referrals (Level 1 - Level 5 referrals). The rewards 'level' is the number of people between you and the buyer - so your friends are Level 0.
|0 – direct referral to a buyer||$0.10|
|1 – a friend of your friend who buys||$0.06|
|2 – and so forth…||$0.04|
After you find songs that you love and want to refer to friends, it's important to encourage those friends to join Tune Tornado too, so that you can keep earning rewards when their friends buy the music.
Note: All rewards are paid on a percentage basis. The examples above are based on a $0.99 song price. The details of rewards are governed by the Terms of Service.
