Refersion Review & Pricing

Refersion is affiliate tracking software for ecommerce sites, helping brands recrute their network of affiliates and even turn customers into affiliates.

Check out the intro video below:

Refersion Integrations

Refersion integrates with all the top ecommerce platforms, with their biggest integration and customer base being Shopify.

They also integrate with Shopify subscription software ReCharge to attribute subscriptions to affiliates and email marketing automation software such as Klaviyo for segmenting affiliate communications. And they allow brands to connect to external affiliate networks such as VigLink and network their influencers.

Refersion for Brands

Refersion enables ecommerce brands to track any digital sales their affiliates refer. Using their software you can watch clicks and conversions happening in real-time.

You can set up unlimited commission structures and automatically approve affiliates and orders. You also give your affiliates a personalised portal with a strong analytics dashboard to track performance and transparent commission and payment history.

They have a really great learning area to enable brands to understand how to recruit the maximum number of affiliates from multiple channels such as Facebook or Instagram, as well as run webinars such as the one below.

Refersion for Affiliates

Refersion not only provides best in class software for managing a company’s affiliate program, but also a marketplace for affiliates to sign up and find offers that suit their own audience and get paid for every sale you refer.

Refersion Marketplace

As an affiliate just head to marketplace.refersion.com and register for a free account.

Once inside the dashboard, you simply click to add your first offer you are greeted with a vast selection of ecommerce brands, and the excellent filters means you can find ones that suit your criteria as an affiliate such as payment by paypal.

In the example below I selected the first one by Iron Neck.

LeadDyno Review & Pricing

LeadDyno proclaims to be the “best affiliate marketing software” with “easy setup”. On the setup side it certainly integrates very well with the likes of Shopify, PayPal and Bigcommerce and even has one click integrations with wordpress. It even promotes a 3 minute setup:

However some ex-customers would vote differently. One is the website conversion software company Proof who wanted to move away from Lead Dyno to Partnerstack and had been working on getting every affiliate partner transferred before canceling their account.

For the past 6 months we’ve been trying to move Proof’s affiliate program off of LeadDyno to a much better solution, PartnerStack and they have made it quite difficult for us.
My team and I have worked diligently at getting every partner and commission transferred. This morning I woke up excited to finally press that cancel button.
Plot Twist: you think they are gonna let our 4000 affiliates switch without throwing some punches? I shouldn’t have given LeadDyno the benefit of the doubt.
No no… they sent this email **ON BEHALF OF US** to all our affiliates saying we are no longer crediting sales.

Austin Distel, CMO at Proof

Another SaaS customer of Lead Dyno was Leadfuze shown in the example below who have also moved, in their case over to FirstPromoter. Justin McGill is the founder and in charge of marketing and in his words:

I actually stopped LeadDyno and switched over to FirstPromoter because LeadDyno kept showing commissions owed even when the customer cancelled. Literally spend extra thousands on commissions that weren’t actually owed because it apparently it just does a recurring commission but doesn’t associate it to the Stripe. 

LeadDyno Affiliate Dashboard

Companies set up an “affiliate website” on a subdomain such as https://leadfuze.leaddyno.com/affiliate using the sales prospecting tool Leadfuze as an example below:

LeadDyno affiliate dashboard

Above is the dashboard affiliates log into. You are greeted with your affiliate link and easy to share social links which you can pre-populate. It shows how many friends have visited, signed up and purchased your product.

Under Marketing Materials you can upload your banner ads and other assets for affiliates to promote; under Newsletters you can keep your affiliates informed on new products or features that they can focus on promoting.

The SubIDs/Channels is powerful as means your affiliates can can create custom affiliate links that can point anywhere on your website, not just your homepage or sales page. This gives people the ability to soft sell by first linking to say a blog post and still getting commission if the person signs up.

Affiliates can also search for thousands of affiliate programs on the LeadDyno network at e-commerceaffiliates.com.

Lead Dyno Pricing

LeadDyno offer a free 14 day trial and comes with three plans: Starter from $49/m, Biz Builder from $59/m and Accelerator from $79/m. Pricing plans are based on unique visitors to your website but come with unlimited affiliates.

Get Ambassador Review & Pricing

Get Ambassador is referral software I have used for many years myself as an affiliate. Previously the marketing automation tool Drip.co used this software for their affiliate programme and I found it one of the easiest to use and navigate as an affiliate.

Previously every business would have their own login such as https://drip.getambassador.com/dashboard/ for Drip however Get Ambassador has a correctly gone down the path of Partner Stack where affiliates can access multiple programmes from within a single login as shown below for the graphic design as a service company Design Pickle which is the example this review will be using :

Get Ambassador affiliate software dashboard

Get Ambassador Dashboard

Once inside your affiliates are presented with an easy to use and understand dashboard showing you what they’ve earned to date and what is awaiting payout :

Get Ambassador affiliate dashboard

The stats tab shows clicks, referrals, revenue generated for your business and commission for the affiliate:

GetAmbassador affiliate stats dashboard

The Commissions tab shows the commission date, customer referred name and email (your affiliates get your customer’s email), revenue, commission and whether the transaction has been approved or was zero commission.

The Payouts tab shows the payout date, customer ID, payout amount, payout method you will want to use to pay affiliates (typically Paypal)and the status (whether paid or not).

The Assets tab is where you can upload your content assets that an help affiliates promote your online business such as adverts, banners, guidebooks and logos.

Get Ambassador Pricing

There are three plans for Ambassador software: Starter (for startups and small businesses), Professional (for mid-to-large size companies) and Enterprise (which can be white-labelled). Ambassador pricing for affiliates is actually not listed on the website where you need to schedule a demo however from googling it appears that Starter is in the region of  $800/m, professional is around $1500/m and Enterprise is of course custom by quote.

Salescamp Review & Pricing

SalesCamp is a referral marketing SaaS tool by serial bootstrapping entrepreneur Craig Hewitt.

It’s a unique referral software platform as it enables online businesses to create both referral and affiliate programs that enable customers and affiliates to promote their business.

Customer referrals are often the highest converting traffic to your site and referral campaigns put word-of-mouth growth on steroids. Salescamp states that people referred by a friend are 4x more likely to buy.

Salescamp has a direct integration with Stripe which means that SaaS companies, ecommerce sites such as on Shopify, and information product businesses can easily track when a referral has resulted in a sale.

For those that do not take payments using stripe, you can simply track a purchase by entering a custom URL trigger:

Salescamp Review

After this you then have multiple reward options to best motivate customers or affiliates.

Salescamp Review

You have options from gift cards to cash to a custom reward and you can set the referrer amount as either a percentage of the sale or a fixed amount. These rewards can also be one time or recurring rewards.

The software generates a referral widget and signup form and a button you can install on your site or app that enables users to bring up their overlay at any point to enable them to monitor their progress and rewards.

Salescamp Review

You are then given just one line of tracking code to place on your site along with a referrer registration form URL.
