New “Earn” Section to Onboard Affiliates via User Dashboard
We’ve added a new “Earn” section in the User Dashboard to help you onboard affiliates directly from there, in addition to other onboarding mechanisms. Here are all the ways you can now onboard affiliates to grow your affiliate program:
- Through the User Dashboard
- Through the WP Admin
- Through a custom contact form on your website via the Freemius API
Keep in mind that you can always onboard affiliates manually if you want to.
Control Affiliate Program Visibility in User Dashboard
As a complementary feature to the new Earn section in the User Dashboard, you can now control the visibility of your affiliate program and hide it from users that are not yet your affiliates. This option allows you to run a private affiliate program, where you control inviting affiliates directly.
In response to the increased use of the affiliate platform by developers, we added the mechanism to associate a coupon to a specific affiliate, which overrides any other affiliate referrals.
This is a common use-case in the WordPress ecosystem, which we’re now glad to be able to offer as a full-proof tracking method of tracking referrals and ensuring credit goes where it’s due.
New Affiliate Agreement
We worked with our attorney to come up with a legal affiliate agreement to protect you and us effectively within the context of the GPL space. It contains all the terms affiliates must agree to when applying, and you are free to use it on your website and other places.
The dynamic Affiliate Agreement URL is:
New EULA URL
The dynamically generated EULA (End-User License Agreement) has moved to a new URL (the old URL redirects accordingly):
In the future, we plan to offer the
/legal/ URL as the primary index of all of your business’ legal agreements with relation to Freemius.
