Getting started with the beehiiv Partner Program

When it comes to partner programs, the beehiiv Partner Program (PP) is by far the most lucrative program in the newsletter space. Boasting the highest revenue share in the industry. 

Not only will both you and your audience benefit from our generous double-sided rewards, but you’ll also earn a whopping 50% commission for 12-months! 

Plus, we’ll keep tabs on the action with a 60-day cookie on all traffic that you send, which is attributed on a first-touch basis.

How the Partner Program makes you money

After signing up for the PP from your beehiiv account, you’ll receive your own partner link that you can use to promote beehiiv. 

Then moving forward, you’ll find your partner link (aka affiliate link) and all necessary resources in your beehiiv account dashboard here. When someone signs up to beehiiv using your partner link, you’ll earn 50% of the commission that they bring in. That’s 50% of all referred revenue for 12 months!

This means if you refer just 5 people per month, you could earn over $20,000 in one year.

Anyone that you refer to beehiiv will also get to take advantage of our double-sided rewards and will automatically receive a 30-day free trial and 20% off of their first 3 months on any paid plan. 

Again, we use cookies to track the progress of sign ups. Each cookie expires after 60 days and commissions are paid on a first-click basis. 


Double-sided rewards for all 

As an added bonus, double-sided rewards are automatically built into your partner link. There is nothing you need to do to take advantage of them. When anyone you send via your partner link signs up, they’ll automatically have the discount applied.

They will also received this welcome banner message when visiting any webpage you send them to on our website:
