How our program works
You'll get credit for all Starter WP referrals made within 60 days.
Commissions are structured as one-time payments for each purchase.
For Starter WP setup plans, you will earn $200 for each completed purchase.
Discounts or coupons applied to a setup plan do not reduce the amount of commission paid.
We require new referrals to remain uncancelled for 60 days before any commission is paid out. This coincides with our 60 days money-back guarantee for new customers.
We issue payments through Payouts Service on the 20th of every month, and your commission will be automatically deposited to your configured bank account.
Sales are tracked when a customer clicks through your affiliate link and completes a purchase. When a link is clicked, it places a cookie on the browser and will track any sale that takes place within a certain period. If the customer successfully signs up with your affiliate link, your account will be credited with the referral commission. For the privacy of our customers, the account name is not shown to protect any customer's personally identifiable information. The cookie lasts 60 days.
Note: There are factors beyond our control that can impact affiliate link tracking. The most common being cookie and ad blocker extensions installed in web browsers.
To view any tracked sales you have made, click the "Referrals" tab at the top of the Starter WP Affiliate Portal. There, you can view all of your referrals and their current status.
Your affiliate link will be provided to you in a confirmation email shortly after being accepted as an affiliate. You can view your link and build custom links in the Starter WP Affiliate Portal when you log in or by clicking the "Affiliate URLs" tab.
There are a few reasons why a sale may not track correctly. Whether it is due to caching, a cookie not firing, or your link being used incorrectly, our affiliate team can investigate the issue for you. In order to claim credit for a missing referral, you must notify us within 30 days of the purchase date and will be required to provide certain information to verify the account details. You can email us [email protected] to claim missed referrals.
In addition to the banners found in the Affiliate Portal, affiliates have the added benefits of promoting Starter WP through a co-branded landing page. Email the affiliate team at [email protected] to request a landing page, include your affiliate account ID, and a 400x200 transparent copy of your company/brand logo as an attachment. The team will follow up when the landing page is ready.
We restrict custom coupons to our top-performing partners on a case-by-case basis. All of our partners start with a generic promotional code to use. As your performance increases, the further we are able to build upon our relationship and determine what would best suit your audience. If you feel you have made a significant performance as an affiliate and would like to discuss this, you can email us at [email protected]
This is up to you! We have an extensive catalog of links and banner ads for you to use in your promotions. Ideal locations for links and banners include reviews, comparison pieces, newsletters, video descriptions, ebooks/guides, headers, and footers. The more relevant the content, the better when it comes to placing your links.
Please note that we only allow affiliate links to be placed on domains that you own. If you wish to refer customers through platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, or AdWords, for example, you will need to link off to a landing page that contains your affiliate link.
We encourage our affiliates to link to any and all pages and resources you believe may be helpful to your audience. You can build custom affiliate links in the Affiliate Portal that link to any page on the Starter WP website and include your affiliate tracking ID. It's a fantastic way of adding variety to the promotional content you have in place and can help with your conversions.
There are multiple reasons why your commission might have been voided. The most common reason for voided commissions is customer cancellation. If you want more information about a specific transaction, please email the transaction reference ID along with your affiliate ID to the team at [email protected]
We do not issue commissions for plan upgrades, add-ons, or hosting services. Affiliate commissions are earned only on new Starter WP setup plans.
We strongly encourage all customers to sign up for their own Starter WP setup plan. We've found that this ensures the best end-customer experience and allows us to properly collect and remit taxes based on your client's location.
Our program also does not award commissions for self-referrals, so any signups on behalf of clients will not appear in your Affiliate Portal or may appear as voided commissions.
