The DashClicks Affiliate Program is an optional part of our platform that allows main account users to generate additional monthly income. Users can earn a commission for all software subscription referrals we receive as a result of using your unique referral code.
This guide serves to provide a basic overview of the Affiliate Program, how to become an affiliate, and how to use your affiliate page.
How Does the Affiliate Program Work?
Any DashClicks user that has an account is eligible to participate in our program. This includes free accounts. You do not need to have a paid subscription to participate.
The only requirement for creating an affiliate account is to be a main account user. This program is not available to sub-account users.
By creating a main account, you will receive a personalized referral code that we associate with your profile. Any time a user creates a new account and signs up for a software subscription, you will receive a commission for that sale every month.
You can receive a commission on every software subscription we gain as a result of your referrals. As you increase your number of referrals, your affiliate level increases, and so too does your commission.
Here is a quick overview of the affiliate levels and the associated commission rates:
Starter Level - 0-19 Account Referrals - 20% Commission
Diamond Level - 20-39 Account Referrals - 30% Commission
Legend Level - 40+ Account Referrals - 40% Commission
You also have the opportunity to earn an additional 5% commission for any additional subscriptions those users purchase within our fulfillment store.
You will receive a payment for the initial sale and every payment we receive each month as long as those users remain subscribed. We check your affiliate level twice a month on the 1st and 15th and issue your payment accordingly.

Accessing Your Affiliate Page
Main account users can access their affiliate page by clicking on their profile picture in the top-right corner. Then, use the dropdown to click on Affiliate Program.
Using the Affiliate Center
The Affiliate Center consists of five major sections you can use to track your performance, earnings, and even see how you stack up against other affiliates.
Your Affiliate Level and Referral Link
The first section on the top left will show your current Affiliate Level and the date you became an affiliate.
Below is where you will find your unique referral link. You can highlight and copy the link directly or use the button located on the right. This will be your lifeline as an affiliate as future users must use your code when they sign up for you to receive credit. We will not retroactively count referrals if the user fails to use your code.
The bar beneath shows your progress toward the next affiliate level. Because the Starter Level spans 0-19 referrals, those numbers are present at each end of the bar. They will change whenever you exceed 19 referrals and make it to the next affiliate level.
Next Affiliate Level
The section beneath ties directly into the above and shows the next available affiliate level. It will also detail any special offers you may have available for completing certain tasks as an affiliate as shown in the picture above.
Partner Stats & Earnings
The last section on the left shows all of your partner stats since the last system check. When our system automatically checks your account for new referrals on the 1st and 15th of the month, these stats will update accordingly.
Let’s take a look at what each metric means:
Total Clicks - This is the total number of times that other people clicked on your referral link.
Trialing Referrals - This is the number of users who created an account with DashClicks as a result of your referral. However, they are only using a free account.
Active Referrals - This is the number of referred users that have active software subscriptions with DashClicks. You will receive a commission each month from these sales.
To Be Paid on the 1st or 15th - This shows the amount you can expect to be paid during the next period. This number also excludes commissions for refunds or chargebacks that may have been deducted from a previous referral. This resets to 0 at the beginning of each month.
Lifetime Earnings - This is the total amount of commission earned throughout your time as an affiliate. This includes both software and service subscriptions.
The top section on the right shows the current leaderboard for all DashClicks affiliates. This will always display the top 10 leading performers in a given period. By default, this will be set to the current week.
You can check on performance for additional periods by using the drop-down in the top-right corner. There, you can review the top ten earners for the current month and all-time.
The final section allows you to review your lifetime earnings as an affiliate.
DashClicks Platform refers to your lifetime earnings from all software subscriptions that were a result of your referrals.
DashClicks Fulfillment refers to your lifetime earnings from all additional subscriptions we receive as a result of your referrals.
You can learn more about the difference between the two here.
Lastly, the table below will list every company that signs up for a subscription with your referral link. However, we do not list the name for privacy reasons and instead use an internal agency identifier.
Here is a quick breakdown of each column within the table:
Signed Up - The date and time the agency signed up using your referral link.
Purchases - This is the total value of all the subscription purchases from this agency.
Fulfillment Commission - This is the total earnings you made from fulfillment subscriptions purchased by this agency.
Software Commission - This is the total earnings you made from this agency’s software subscription.
Agency ID - This is the agency’s unique identifier that we use for internal tracking.
