Welcome! We are so glad you’re here and want to learn more about The ConvertKit Affiliate Program!
First things first, affiliates are a very important part of our growth strategy. We have many successful affiliate partners who earn thousands in recurring revenue from our program each month because of our continued commitment to creating opportunities for our affiliates to earn commissions.
As a ConvertKit affiliate you’ll earn a 30% commission each month from everyone you refer. That means if you send us an account worth $99/month, you’ll earn about $30. Every month.

Details and terms
The rules on our affiliate program are pretty simple, but we need a few rules in place to prevent abuse.
- Payouts are currently made on the 2nd of each month.
- Affiliate commissions are approved on the 1st of each month. There is a minimum delay of 30 days before approving pending commissions (to account for any refunds since we have a 30-day no-questions-asked refund policy).
- Depending on when a commission is earned in a month, it can be pending for up to 60 days. For example, if you earned a commission on August 5th, it along w/ all August commissions would be approved on Oct 1 (creating a 55 day delay) and paid on Oct 2nd. If you earned a commission on Aug 30, it would also get approved on Oct 1 (creating a 30 day delay) and paid on Oct 2nd.
- You will receive a 30% recurring commission from the accounts you refer. If someone you refer is on the monthly payment plan, you will receive commissions monthly. If your referral signs up for our annual plan (one payment for the year), you will receive 30% of that annual payment in one payment.
- Affiliate links are based on first click attribution, meaning the commission will go to the affiliate whose affiliate link they clicked first, not last
- Self-referrals are not allowed. The point is to get you to refer other people. This is not a way to get a discount on your own account.
- Abuse, gaming, or shady behavior will get your account banned. Just be cool.
- In some cases, we can give credit to an affiliate even if the customer didn’t sign up through their link by mistake. If you have a case like that, contact us first so we can help.
- We reserve the right to change the terms at anytime.
Now, with those details out of the way we can go about paying you for sending great customers our way!
