One of the added bonuses of launching your referral program with Kickbooster is the ability to add your referral program to the Kickbooster Marketplace.
Advertising your referral program on our Marketplace will make it visible to an existing community of Affiliates that refer to Kickbooster for new programs they can participate in.
Adding your referral program to our Marketplace is completely optional. Please note that for campaigns that registered to Kickbooster as of October 1st 2019, any sales made through Marketplace Affiliates or through Kickbooster directly (Marketplace, Newsletter, etc) will be charged at a 5% administration fee rate instead of 3%.

Our affiliate network has over 30k users looking for campaigns to promote. Here are some of the types of Affiliates we have seen:
Customers looking for the latest and greatest campaigns

It is up to you to invite as many people as you can to your referral program. Click here for some tips on getting the word out.
Can I see a list of the Affiliates in your network?
No, we do not publicly display a list of the affiliates in our network.
How do I tap into the network and get them to promote my products?
Kickbooster's Marketplace is a great way of getting your referral program in front of an existing network of affiliates. This allows them to see all the open referral programs they are able to participate in.
It's ultimately up to the Affiliate to choose to participate in your referral program.
Do the Affiliates in the network often refer themselves?
In the Kickbooster network, we have 2 types of Affiliates:
Content creators (publishers, influencers, affiliate marketers) with large audiences
Individuals who support stores/campaigns using our platform
In the second scenario, Affiliates will often purchase products from stores or make a pledge to a campaign using their own affiliate link in order to generate a commission. The way we look at this is that by opening your store up to our Marketplace, you're gaining access to new potential customers that might not have been familiar with your store or campaign beforehand.
Do I have to add my referral program to the Marketplace?
Adding your program to our Marketplace is completely optional. It is certainly encouraged if you're looking for help in reaching a larger audience.
How do I get featured as a Staff Pick?
Our team takes special care in selecting our favourite referral programs to be featured as Staff Picks on our Marketplace.
Promotion on our end is largely based on your referral program's activity— the more active you are and the more of your community you bring to your Kickbooster referral program, the more promotion you can expect to receive.
