February 1, 2016: New terms for Webasyst partnersJanuary 22, 2016
We are preparing major changes to our partnership programs. The new changes will become effective on February 1, 2016 and will open new earning and business development opportunities for everyone working with Webasyst and Shop-Script.
50% for partners
Effective February 1, partner reward (discount) will grow from 20—40%, which used to depend on the amount of sold software licenses, to 50% regardless of how many licenses a partner has sold. Partner discount will be equal to 50% even for the very first sold license!
To become a partner, you will have to accept the terms and conditions of the partnership agreement and complete a questionnaire. Upon approval by Webasyst, a partner will be able to place orders with 50% discount. First license discount will be applied only for products developed by Webasyst. Further licenses of the same product will be available to partners with 50% discount regardless of the product developer.
Crediting of partner account balance, with a minimum withdrawal amount threshold, which is applicable today, will be replaced with a discount applied immediately during checkout. As usual, a mandatory requirement for partners will remain the condition to keep their sales prices equal to those set by product developers. So partners will receive their reward immediately upon sale to end user rather than accumulate it on the partner account balance.
At the same time, on February, 2016 we are closing the referral program, which has been allowing partners to attract new customers via promo links of the form ?promo_id= to Webasyst and Shop-Script websites. Unfortunately, the way this partner program was implemented, it proved inefficient. We will keep looking for other options of its development though. A new version of the referral program is planned to be announced in the spring this year.
50% off extra licenses
Effective February 1, discounts for additional licenses of any Webasyst products will grow to 50% (from current 10%–25%).
The "50% off extra licenses" rule will be applied to all products published in Webasyst store including those created by third-party developers.
Since the discount for additional licenses will become much larger, it will not be added to the temporary discounts of Webasyst special offers. Therefore, ordering an additional license will be а profitable purchase at any time, without having to wait for a large sale.
