Google is looking to bolster subscriptions to its Apps web-based services with a new referral programme, the company announced today.
Currently available in the United States and Canada only, Google said it would pay US$15 (A$16.65) for each new customer referred to them and who signs up for Apps.
There are also coupons available that give new Google Apps customers a US$10 discount for the first year.
While an unlimited amount of referrals is permitted, only the first 100 are rewarded by Google for a total of US$1500 (A$1665).
Other caveats include new customers must join through special links and they have to sign up for at least 120 days for the referral bounty to be paid out.
Existing Google App customers who refer others to the service must also provide a valid tax US or Canadian identification number.
