How do I find and use my credit?

You worked hard enough to earn your credits, so no need to worry about coupon codes, golden tickets, or excessive button clicks. Credits automatically apply to your workspace when you pay or the next time a bill rolls around. If you are in more than one workspace, you can select which workspace to apply the credit to in account settings.
You can find your credit balance under workspace settings → billing.
You can also track your Coda credit and cash earned directly in PartnerStack. Coda credit will automatically be applied to your next bill and the recipient will automatically have it applied when they sign up for a paid plan.
For more information or questions about PartnerStack, please refer to their Help Center homepage and click Partnering with programs to troubleshoot.

How will people sign up from my doc?

Signups from a prompt:
When you publish a doc to the Coda Gallery, go to the Publish tab under the share dialog and toggle on the Sign up modal. Coda will now show visitors a prompt to sign up. This increases the chance of a new user signing up for a Coda account from your doc.

Note: if you have not for the affiliate program, you will only earn credit.
Signups from doc copies:
After you for the affiliate program, any user who signs up by copying any of your published docs will be credited to you as a referral.

What counts toward referrals and upgrades?

When someone signs up to Coda through your affiliate link or published doc, that counts as a referral. Referrals will net you $10 credit.
If any workspace that was created by a referred user upgrades to a paid plan, you will get 20% of the first-year revenue from that workspace (even if the referred user didn’t pay for it themselves).
You will be paid based on the transactions in the workspace. So if the workspace pays for a yearly plan, you will get 20% of that yearly plan upgrade transaction. If new makers join the workspace during the year, you will get 20% of those transactions as well. Similarly, if the workspace is on a monthly plan, you will get 20% of every transaction for their plan, which could increase or decrease over the course of the year depending on how many Makers the workspace is paying for.
Note: Coda reserves the right to review and adjust any transaction before making payouts.

What if I was already using the old referral program?

Coda has recently made improvements to the affiliate program. Previously, makers were able to earn $10 in Coda credit for each person they referred through their published docs. Now makers can continue earning $10 in Coda credit for each person referred through their published docs in addition to earning 20% of their referrals’ first year revenue when the referral upgrades to a paid Coda plan.
Coda credit from our previous referral program is still valid and will be automatically applied to your workspace.
For makers who had a link from the previous referral program, this link is still valid for earning Coda credit. However in order to earn cash and Coda credit, we ask that you sign up for the updated affiliate program through PartnerStack.
