It’s easy to start earning.

1. Sign up to become an affiliate.
We use PartnerStack to manage payouts. Anyone can sign up for free.

2. Turn on “Earn on this doc.”
When you publish a doc, turn on the “earn on this doc” setting.
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 credit you earn should apply to in account settings.
Note: We are currently working on creating a space where you can see your total credit and this will be available soon.
How will people sign up from my doc?
Sign-ups from a prompt
When you publish a doc to the Coda Gallery, you’ll have an option to earn credit and cash once you set your doc to Discoverable. Note: If you have not to the Affiliate Program, you will only earn credit.
To enable this on your published doc, go to the Publish tab under the share dialog. Then make sure the Earn on this doc option is enabled. Then, as someone browse your doc, Coda may show them a prompt to sign up. If someone signs up for a free Coda account from this prompt shown on your doc, you’ll earn a $10 credit (and so will that person).
These credits work just like those earned by using an affiliate link. If someone signs up for a paid Coda account or upgrades, you will also receive cash.
Sign-ups from doc copies
After you for the affiliate program, anyone 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.
