Referral Incentive Program

Program Overview

Cantor Exchange is excited to announce the launch of our new Referral Incentive Program! As a member of this program, you can get paid for referring traders to become Participants of the Cantor Exchange. Incentive payments earned are based on the trading activity of Participants that you have referred to the Exchange.


It's easy to become a member of this program and start receiving incentive benefits, thereby becoming a Referring Participant1. Whether you are an individual trader looking to earn money by referring your friends, or an Introducing Broker (IB) or Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) wishing to refer clients, all types of Exchange Participants are eligible to participate in this program. There is no limit on the number of Participants that can join the Cantor Exchange Referral Incentive Program.

There are only 2 requirements you must complete before participating in the Cantor Exchange Referral Incentive Program:
  1. You must be a Participant of the Cantor Exchange. For more information about becoming a Participant, please refer to our page on how to Become a Participant.
  2. You must also complete the Cantor Exchange Referring Participant form. You can email a scan of the signed form to customerservice@cantorexchange.com.
After completing the two requirements above, you will be eligible to receive incentive payments based on your Referred Participants' trading activity.

The Referral Incentive program is not applicable to Cantor Exchange weather trading. Participants are not eligible to earn incentive benefits for referring Participants to Cantor Exchange weather trading.

Schedule of Incentive Payments

Payments are made per round turn according to the following schedule:
  • For Referring Participants (other than Independent Software Vendors):
    • $1.00 per 100 round turns if Cantor Direct front-end connection is via API interface
    • $0.75 per 100 round turns if Cantor Direct front-end connection is via ISV interface

Additional Information

Upon meeting all obligations of the Referral Incentive Program, Participants in the program will be eligible to receive predetermined incentives based on the trading activity of their Referred Participant(s).

Referring Participants can provide customized solutions to their Referred Participants by leveraging Cantor Exchange's Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Program. The program is designed to allow Referring Participants to add their unique insights and value-added strategies to the customer trading experience.
