Techopedia explains Referral Partner
These actions are usually sales, so the referral partner is paid only when the referred user buys a product or service and/or registers itself with the website to become a prospective lead. Referral partners are normally website and blog publishers producing content in a similar category as the products or services the advertiser is selling. For example, a technology blogger might rate a list of smartphone apps and provide links to pages where those apps can be purchased. When a website visitor buys an app, the blogger gets paid.
