Okendo’s merchant referral program allows our customers to earn more as they refer more people. You can move through four tiers based on how many successful referrals you make. To be considered a successful referral, the merchant you referred must activate and pay for a plan with Okendo.

To count toward the next tier, you must achieve all successful referrals within a 365-day rolling period. For example, if you get three referrals, and then don’t make another referral until 11 months later, you'll have only one successful referral that counts towards moving to the next tier when the year rolls over to the next month.

On every tier, Okendo applies any extra billing credits to the next billing cycle. You can earn more than one credit per billing cycle and any amount over your subscription will carry forward to the next month. For example, if your monthly subscription is $99 and you refer three friends ($50 x 3 = $150 billing credit) in one month, you'll owe $0 that month, and then Okendo applies the additional $51 to your next monthly bill.

Tier 1

Everyone who successfully refers new customers to Okendo starts on Tier 1. This tier applies to your first five successful referrals. On this tier, you get:

  • $50 subscription credit per each successful referral. The credit or credits apply toward the amount you owe on your Okendo subscription in the month you earn the credit or credits.

  • Social shout-out after your first successful referral. After you make your first successful referral, we'll share your business across our social profiles.

Tier 2

On your sixth successful referral, you'll receive all the benefits of Tier 2. This tier applies through your tenth successful referral. On this tier, you get:

  • $100 subscription credit per each successful referral. The credit or credits apply toward the amount you owe on your Okendo subscription in the month you earn the credit or credits.

  • Social shout-outs and co-marketing opportunities. We'll continue to share your story on our social media, but on this tier, we can take it a step further. We can produce a case study, interview you for our blog, quote you as an expert in our content - anyway we can help tell your story!
