How to Refer in Big Basket

With the advent of e-commerce, online grocery shopping is gaining momentum among people. Big Basket is India’s top online grocer that receives over 100,000 orders every day. The online grocery retail market is growing very fast, and Big Basket holds a huge share.

It has a valuation of 1.8 billion dollars, and the investors include some prestigious names like Alibaba Group, ICICI venture, Ascent Capital, etc. Shopping grocery online can become hectic due to innumerable options, but a big basket makes it easy by recommending personalized products.

Big Basket has eliminated the need to go to shops or to stand in queues. After you order products from Big basket, they will be delivered to your doorstep at a preferred time.

BigBasket Referral Code

Big Basket allows the user to avail of some credit points every time your friend or your ‘referral’ sign up with them through your referral code. Presently, they offer 100 credit points (1 Rs. = 1 credit point) for each BigBasket referral code. So, if someone signs up using your code for a big basket amount, you can get a discount of 100 Rs. On orders above 500 Rs. There’s another good news. Not just you, but your friend will also earn credit points that can be used to avail of the discount.

However, there is a small limitation to this referral system. Big Basket allows only 20 referrals, which means you can only refer up to 20 friends. This also means that you can earn 2000 credits at maximum.

So, what happens when you have exhausted the 20 referrals and more people sign up with your code? Well, that is quite simple. You wouldn’t receive any credit points, but your code can still be used for signing up. Thus, it becomes important to keep track of the number of people signed up from your referral code. You should also know that the referral reward of Rs. 100 will be credited to your bb wallet within 24 hours of successful order delivery.
