A. ShopBase Affiliate Program

1. Affiliate benefits

In ShopBase Affiliate Program, we offer up to 10% recurring commission on all merchants you drive, for as long as your referrals remain ShopBase's customers. The commission includes both monthly subscriptions and transaction fees. Your commission varies between your referred merchants' selected pricing plans:

Pro Base: 10% commission.
Standard Base: 8% commission.
Basic Base: 5% commission.

Kindly check out ShopBase pricing to see the subscription and transaction fees of each plan above.

In addition, the merchant who opens a ShopBase store with your link will get a special offer: 20% off the subscription fee for the first month using ShopBase.

To join ShopBase Affiliate Program, contact us at marketing@shopbase.com.
When you have been approved to join the program by ShopBase team, you can go to the ShopBase Affiliate Program menu in your Partner dashboard to copy the Referral Link and share it with your audience.


To become your referral, your audience can do either of the following ways:
