How do I set up my own Affiliate Program on Refersion?

Within our Gym Management Software, you have the ability to create your own affiliate program.

If you would like to create your own affiliate program and allow people to make commissions by referring customers to your plans and memberships, we have integrated with Refersion’s affiliate platform to make that possible!

Here’s how to get it set up:

Step-by-Step Guide:

Step 1: Sign-up for a Refersion account:

Step 2: Connect your Refersion account to your Stripe account

Do this by clicking this link: https://www.refersion.com/tracking/stripe

Enter your custom domain when prompted. Example: training.yourdomain.com

Step 3: Grab your Refersion API key

Do so by going to your Refersion Account Settings > Refersion API 

Step 4: Connect your Refersion account to your Exercise.com account

Do so by logging into your platform and going to My Connected Apps and entering your Refersion Public API Key.

Setting up your affiliates:

Step 1: Use the Refersion form.

For someone to become your affiliate, they’d sign-up via your Refersion form. You can find links to your Refersion form by logging into Refersion and clicking “Your Link”: 

You can also embed your affiliate form on your own website.

Step 2: Add their affiliate ID.

Once someone signs up as an affiliate, they’ll receive a welcome email. You will give them the specific link(s) to the plan(s) or membership(s) they are promoting. To do that, you’d add their affiliate ID (see image below) to the plan/membership link they will be promoting:

Step 3: Promote your plans and memberships.

To promote your plans and memberships, they just need to share their unique affiliate tracking links.

Refersion tracks any purchase from affiliate links and lets you know how much to pay them either via PayPal or Direct Deposit to their bank account.

If you need to make changes to your affiliate links, there are three main ways to do this in the Refersion platform:

For the entire merchant account

Result: All affiliates, new and old, will have their referral links adjusted.
How: Contact Refersion and let them know the landing page you’d like to customize via a message to their support team (helpme@refersion.com) or via the in-app support system. Refersion support has access to edit referral links for a merchant’s account so all new affiliates registered will land on a certain page or have a specific UTM tag.

For a specific affiliate

Result: Only a specific affiliate(s) will have their referral links adjusted.
How: You can navigate to a specific affiliate’s account (Manage > Affiliates) and add the parameters or landing page info there.

For a specific instance

Result: Affiliate will have a referral link created on-demand from within the dashboard.
How: Simple enter the dashboard and use the “link to a specific page” feature.
