The Value of the Freemius Affiliate Business Model

If you are selling a freemium product, affiliates can market your free product version, even when it’s listed on WordPress.org, and still get a commission when users upgrade to a paid plan.

Manage your affiliates, payouts, and all other aspects of your plugin or theme business in one dashboard.

Convert your users and customers into an army of promoters by onboarding affiliates through the WordPress Dashboard.

Read our strategies for making the affiliate model successful for WordPress theme and plugin businesses.

Built Directly Into the WP Settings of Your Product

Like many of our features, we try to facilitate implementation as much as possible by making things easily accessible in the WordPress dashboard. After integrating our SDK and activating the affiliate program, all your WordPress theme or plugin users will see the affiliation application button in their WordPress dashboard.

Free users or paid customers (depending on your configuration) can then submit their request and become affiliates without ever leaving the WP Admin dashboard.
