I referred a friend of mine to Mylot via my referrallink and she turned up as a friend's request but not as my downline. I have alerted Mylot to this..it's hard enough getting hold of referrals, let alone not getting themunder me. When a Mylot referral joins do they update that referral immediately when they join?Or the next day? Because I panicked and alerted Mylot and so did my friend to verify that i had recruited her via the contact us..Di I do the right thing? I didn't want tolose my referral. I work hard to get my referrals in any program I don't like them to slip through. Has any one else had this problem? Can any one tell me when Mylot updates referrals? Thanks

Or might it be that your friend decided to join under another person instead? It seems too incredible a glitch to be otherwise... But if your friend insists, I guess myLot may look at it as a case by case thingy.

As a saw from my referrals they show them automatically the moment they singup.Of course I haven't many but this happened to me always.I hope until you read this post your referral show at your downline. By sending message to mylot you did the best.Help me every time I ask help until now.

When my husband joined, we did not get credit right away,and I resolved it with personal messages to myLot. When my son and neice joined, it went smoothly and updated the next update. When my daughter joined, it updated immediately, but came through as a friend request that would not approve. That was earlier this week when they were having so much trouble with friend approval things. I would say you did the right thing, because when we had to straighten things out, myLot requested both of us e mail them. Good luck.

When you refer someone, they should show up as your referral instantly. You shouldn't have to wait for it. Maybe she can rejoin again under you. Maybe she didn't have the correct link to be your referral. I sure know how hard it is to get a referral. It is also hard to find a good active referral also. I haven't had to deal with this problem yet, thank God. I hope Mylot gets back with you on this and puts them under you as your referral. Let us know how it all comes out. Good luck and best wishes with it. I hope they fix it for you.

yea agree with you that it is very hard to get a refferal and it is really disappointing when we dont get it.i think mylot team will do the appropriate action in your case and do the same for the other members who are in the same boat.

Oh, they get updated once you've been reffered by your friend. Don't panic as it takes to just refresh your window to get hold of it. Ya, it's hard to get a refferal and to lose one I can't seem to think so. No, I didn't had this problem yet :P cuz i only have 3 refferals lol :P

Actually they update right after the referral joins you. If it doesn't show that you have your referral, it means something is wrong.....

It's been a long time since anybody joined under me, but back then referrals would show up almost immediately. It wasn't done the day after or anything. I hope mylot puts your friend back under you. You are so right, getting referrals is one thing and if they are elsewhere, its no use at all! You did the right thing by alerting mylot...accept your friend's request for now...hopefully things should be set right tomorrow.

Find Referrals is not easy and you are doing the right things asking to the staff. I don't know if they can do something but I hope that they try. I have only trhee referrals (only one arrived by me, the otehrs I don't know) but they are very lazy!

I never had this problem. But i can understand about how hard it is to have referrals. So i don't blame you for letting mylot know what was going on. You deserve credit for that referral.

I sent my referral my link but she couldn't get it to work but I informed My lot and they were brilliant and fixed it right away for me xx

I'm not sure but I guess they update them once a day, like our earnings. I undrestand your concern, it's really hard to get referrals, especially active referrals (lol!) There should be thousands of people who are just signed up, made some discussions and responses and then disappeared. Hopefully you can keep your referral, and he will post at least 100 responses a day! :-)

Hello!! Okay, that's a weird situation and I think you did right by alerting them to the problem. I've referred a number of people and the moment they sign up, they'll be added to my friend's list and one the sidebar where it says "myLot referrals" the number would go up, immediately. Good luck jie. I hope mylot resolves your problem for you. Otherwise that's just not fair you know? Considering how hard it is to get people to join.
