Affiliate program

The ActiveCampaign Affiliate program is an opportunity to earn a commission when you share ActiveCampaign with other people.

How the Affiliate program works

When you sign up as an affiliate, we'll provide you with a unique affiliate link that you can use to tell other people about ActiveCampaign. When someone clicks on your affiliate link and purchases an ActiveCampaign account, you'll earn commission.

The commission you earn is based on tiers. These tiers are determined by the monthly recurring revenue (MRR) of currently active accounts that you referred at the time of billing. As your MRR increases from active accounts, so will the commission you receive from each billing. If your tier status drops below the MRR thresholds outlined below, your commission percentages will also drop to a lower tier.

There are three commission tiers:

  • Silver
    For new affiliates. Affiliates that have referred $100 worth of new business in the last three months earn 20% commission.
  • Gold
    Affiliates that have referred $100 worth of new business in the last 3 months or have $500 of active accounts earn 25% commission.
  • Platinum
    Affiliates that have referred $500 worth of new business in the last 3 months or have $2,000 worth of active accounts earn 30% commission.

Commissions will be sent to you each month via PayPal. You can supply the email address of the PayPal account that should receive the commissions on the Affiliate > Account Settings page.

In order to be eligible for a payout, Affiliates need to meet three criteria:

  • Have referred at least 2 active referred accounts
  • "Due Next Payment" is at least $100.00
  • Have referred an account in the previous 6 months

If an Affiliate has not referred a new account in the previous 6 months (180 days), they will no longer earn commissions for historical accounts. If an Affiliate begins to refer accounts again after the 6-month period has lapsed, the commission rate will be set to 20% and they will earn commission for new accounts moving forward as long as the above eligibility requirements are met.

Purchases are tracked for 90 days after your affiliate link is clicked. The affiliate link that was clicked first will get credit for the purchase. Commissions are held for 60 days before being paid. You will not receive payment for accounts that were refunded or paid for with ActiveCampaign credit.
