Ecwid referral program

If you are a freelance developer, designer, agency worker, or already using Ecwid you can refer your clients to Ecwid and receive a 20% revenue share for their subscription to Ecwid paid plan. Ecwid offers lifetime commission so for as long as they keep their account, you’ll continue to earn your revenue share.

Becoming an Ecwid partner

Participating in the Ecwid referral program requires signing up for the WebPartner program and connecting your PayPal account so that you can get paid.

To sign up for Ecwid referral program:

  1. Register in the Ecwid WebPartner program. You will receive an email with your login, password and a link to your WebPartner account.
  2. In your Ecwid WebPartner account, copy your personal referral link in the top right-hand corner:

  3. Share the special tracking link with your clients. You can share the same link multiple times.

That’s it. Now your clients must register in Ecwid through your special referral link. Otherwise, they won’t be tied to your partner’s account, and you won’t get a bonus. Once your clients upgrade to Ecwid paid plan, you will get a 20% revenue share to your PayPal account.

If you have already registered an Ecwid store, you can click the Refer a Friend link at the bottom of your Ecwid admin. You will get a password and a link to your WebPartner account to the email you specified for Ecwid registration. If you registered with Apple or Facebook, you will get login details to email you connect with either Apple or Facebook.

Connecting your PayPal account to your WebPartner account

Money for referrals can be transferred only to PayPal, so to get your payments you need to have a PayPal account. Once you connect your PayPal account to your WebPartner account, you can start collecting payments.

To connect your WebPartner account to your PayPal account:

  1. From your WebPartner dashboard, click My Account → My Profile on the top right-hand side:

  2. Scroll down to the Payment Credentials section and enter your PayPal email address.
  3. In the Preferred Payment dropdown, select PayPal.
  4. Scroll down and click Save changes.

WebPartner account overview

You can log in to your WebPartner account with the link you received to your email after registration. Or you can always use the https://partners.ecwid.com/login link.

Your WebPartner account allows you to get an at-a-glance overview of your clients and how much you earned per client.

In the Dashboard tab, you can see how much you've earned in total (the Earned field) and how much money are available for withdrawing (the Awaiting Payout field). To withdraw money, you need to have at least $100 in the Awaiting Payout field.

In the Stats tab, you can see how many clicks per campaign you get, how many referrals you have, and how much you’ve earned during a certain period of time. You can specify the time period in the dropdown.

In the Commissions tab, you can find out more information about customers: their referred name and email, the fee amount paid by your referral customers, and your earned commission amount.

In the Payouts tab, you can find more about the payout date and status of payments.

The Assets tab includes banners with your referral link to share on your blog or website. Сopy the HTML snippet to add it to your website. Once a person clicks on the banner, they will be redirected to register an Ecwid store.

Changing the referral link

At the top of your WebPartner account, you will find a personal referral link that you need to share with your clients to get a bonus:

By default, all referral links redirect customers to the Ecwid homepage. You can edit the link so that it redirects customers to a particular page. For example, you can redirect customers to the Ecwid main login page so they can immediately register their store.

To change a referral link:

  1. Click the pencil icon near the referral link.
  2. At the end of the link, add the following line ?url=YOUR_CUSTOM_PAGE, where ‘YOUR_CUSTOM_PAGE’ is the URL of the page you want to redirect your customers to. The link may look like this: http://open.ecwid.com/6lfFGq?url=https://my.ecwid.com/cp
  3. Click Save campaign URL.

Now your customers will be redirected to the page you specified.

Getting paid

To withdraw money, you have to get at least $100 as a commission payouts. You can check out the commission payouts total in the Awaiting Payout field in your WebPartner account. Until you reach $100 in the Awaiting Payout field, you can't withdraw money. 

Once your commission payouts reach $100 or more, the amount will be transferred to your PayPal account. The money can be withdrawn on the 10th of each month. If you reach $100 after the 10th, you will be get paid on the 10th next month. 

If you didn’t receive a commission for your referred customer’s payment, most likely, your referral customer’s account has not been registered through your affiliate link and the system is unable to track their payments and credit commissions to you. In that case, contact customer support and provide us with your referral’s store ID and your WebPartner email that you used to sign up in the program.
