The Zerodha Associate Programme presents an opportunity for you to participate in a unique business model where you can refer fellow traders and earn more for life. Simply refer a client to sign up and trade with us and you automatically qualify for Associate status. It's that simple!


At Zerodha we believe the best way of advertising is word of mouth. Companies usually have a 10-20% budget for advertising and instead of spending it on media (newspapers, TV channels, etc.) we want to share it with you for helping grow our business.

How it works?

As a Zerodha Associate you keep earning for life every time a trader that you have referred trades with us. Every trade executed by a referral ensures that a sum of Rs 2 is automatically credited into your account. What's even better is that there is no limit on the number of traders that you can refer, meaning the more referrals you make, the more earning potential you can realize.

The table below illustrates how much you can potentially earn by becoming a Zerodha Associate.
