Step 2: Setup your Campaigns

Campaigns are a way to group your affiliates. You can have one or any number of affiliates in a campaign. Your commission rules live at the campaign level to make your program scalable. By default, commissions are recurring for the lifetime of the referred customers, but you can limit it by any number of payments or months.
Flexible, SEO friendly links
Link to any page on your domain with a simple, clean URL parameter (? via=justin). No ugly re-directs or 3rd party subdomains.
Percentage-based commissions
Align your incentives with the quality of customers affiliates send you by rewarding them with a percentage of the revenue they generate. Commissions are calculated on the actual amount charged to the customer (after any tax and/or discounts)
Fixed-amount commissions
Set a fixed amount commission in any currency. We'll generate this commission when a successful payment goes through from a referred customer.
Recurring commissions
Reward affiliates for sending you customers that stick around by providing recurring commissions.
One-time commissions
Set a one-time commission if you prefer to front-load your incentives for affiliates.
Limit commissions by number of payments or months
By default, commissions are recurring for the lifetime of the referred customer. However, you can limit it by any number of payments or months.
Automated refund handling
Rewardful automatically adjusts commissions for full or partial refunds – so you don't have to.
Customer lifecycle automated adjustments
Automatically adjusts commissions for upgrades, downgrades, cancellations and free trials.
Customizable cookie
Set your own cookie length to corresponds with your typical sales cycle – or stick with our default.
Set a holding period
Have a refund policy? Ensure commissions aren't paid out before the refund period is over.
Only generate commissions for paying customers
Generate commissions only on successful payments. We'll automatically detect failed payments (which are common for subscriptions) and prevent commissions until the payment goes through.
Direct page tracking
Attribute a visitor to an affiliate even if they didn't come through an affiliate link. This is useful for creating landing pages with friendly URLs for a partner promotion, or for creating URLs that are easier to share verbally (i.e. on podcasts).
Multiple campaigns
Create additional campaigns to group affiliates or set different commission amounts, commission structures, or cookie lengths.
Double-sided incentives
Add a Stripe coupon to a campaign in Rewardful and we'll automatically apply it when someone comes through a valid referral link.
Private, invite-only campaigns
Lock down your campaign to create an exclusive – invite only – program.
Custom rewards
Reward your advocates with anything you'd like – not just cash or credits.
Multiple currency handling
Support for receiving payments in multiple currencies. Generate and assign commissions in the same currency the referred customer payed in.

Custom domain
Use your own domain or subdomain (affiliates.yourdomain.com, partners.yourdomain.com, friends.yourdomain.com – or whatever you'd like!)
Add your branding

Remove Rewardful branding from your affiliate dashboards and emails.

Step 4: Recruit & invite affiliates

Invite your fans, influencers, existing customers, strategic partners and affiliates to join your referral program. They'll receive their own personal dashboard where they can generate referral links and track their success.
Bulk invite by email
Invite all your affiliates at once using our bulk invite feature. You'll be able to see the status of each invite and resend if needed.

Email marketing integrations
