How does ShipStation's Refer a Friend Program work?

Do you know any friends who sell online like you do? Maybe you have an ecommerce connection who you like to work with but they don't use ShipStation yet? If so, sign up today for our program to Refer a Friend and send them our way! If they sign up for a free 30-day trial using your unique referral link and then subscribe to a monthly plan, you'll receive a $100 gift card for each qualified referral.

See the ShipStation Refer a Friend FAQ page for more information. You can also find a detailed description of a qualifying referral in the Refer a Friend Program Terms.

Once you create your account with our Refer a Friend program, you become eligible to receive a $100 Visa gift card for each qualifying referral who subscribes to a monthly plan and pays their first invoice. You will receive an email letting you know you have a gift card to redeem. Follow the link in the email to claim your gift card. Gift cards will be sent to the email address associated with your ShipStation account. You will have the choice of a $100 Visa debit gift card or you can choose a $100 gift card from a selection of retailers.

Mandatory Disclosure of the Refer a Friend Program

Every time you post, share, or send your referral link, you must tell people that you earn a reward if they use your link to sign up for ShipStation.

Telling people that you earn a reward is a legal requirement under the Referral Program terms.  You can use the default language that ShipStation provides to share your link, or include something like “I earn a reward if you sign up for ShipStation using my link.”
