Flywheel Referral Program

Earn up to $500 for every referral!

Thousands of designers and developers are super fans of Flywheel. They love our blazing fast site speeds, friendly and efficient service, industry-leading management tools, and inspiring design. We are so pumped to be #1 in their hearts and are honored every time they refer us to their friends and customers.

In fact, we’re so excited about those referrals that we’ve created our world-class web hosting referral program to reward our team of brand advocates. Friends of Flywheel tell us that the lucrative commissions (up to $500 per referral!) are awesome, but most of all they love knowing their friends and clients are getting a WordPress hosting platform that leads the industry with innovation, service, and handy tools that help them spend more time doing what they love.

Benefits and perks

Why Flywheel has the best referral program in town!

    No minimums

    Every qualified referral gets paid. Period. We have no minimum performance metrics or minimum earned for payouts, so you’ll get paid for even just a single sale!

    Sweet promos

    You’ll be the first to hear about our legendary Black Flyday and Fly July promotions, as well as other hot deals throughout the year. Everyone loves a good sale, right?!

    Early access

    We frequently call on our referral partners for their feedback on new features and products. Not only will you be the first to try out new stuff, but reviews are huge sources of referrals!

    Secondary commissions

    If you refer a friend and they buy several plans from us, you earn payouts on all of those referrals, up to $500 for that source.

As many of the answers as we could compile!

When and how will I get paid?

Flywheel pays out referral commissions the first week of each calendar month, after a brief holding period of 90 days. All payments are made via PayPal to the address provided when you sign up! At this time, we do not have any alternatives for PayPal, but hope to have one soon.

How much will I make?

The sky’s the limit – we have no cap on your commission potential! Flywheel pays out 300% of the first month’s payment on any plan, up to $500 per referral source. If your customer uses a promotional code or coupon, payouts are adjusted accordingly.

Who can participate?

While our hosting referral program typically attracts designers, developers, and bloggers who use WordPress, we welcome all different kinds of partners into our program. As long as you promise to follow the rules, we will give consideration to a wide variety of referral applications. There are currently no minimum site visits required for our program.

What does it cost to participate?

Zero! Zip! Nada! We don’t charge any fees, and we even welcome those who are not Flywheel customers to our program. (Though, we’d love to have you as a customer! Should we talk?)

Are there any minimums or maximums for payments?

There are no minimums in effect. You can earn a maximum of $500 per referral source, but there is no program maximum earning potential. As long as you keep bringing people on board, we’ll keep the cash flowing!

What if I prefer to stay the owner of my clients' sites?

In order for a transfer to register as a commission, we need a handoff somewhere along the process. You cannot refer sites to your own plan and earn commissions. However, you can absolutely use our handy collaboration feature to stay in control of the site on your clients’ behalf.

Where am I allowed to promote Flywheel?

You can promote Flywheel via your blog, website, social media channels, to your friends and coworkers, in hand-written love letters, on the Jumbotron, via skywriter (please, send us photos), or pretty much any other way you can think of. The only thing we ask is that you don’t promote Flywheel via paid search and that you follow our brand guidelines in all promotions.

I think I'd prefer to resell hosting.

No problem! Check out our Agency Partners Program. You can even participate in both if you’re interested! We try to keep things as flexible as possible for all business models.

I have a different question.
