Some Zoho products that your audience will love
Frequently asked questions
Who can I refer?
You can refer any business that is not an existing Zoho customer under any paid subscription plan.
How much commission can I earn?
For each qualified sale that you generate, you can earn 15% of the revenue Zoho receives from the sale in the subsequent 12 months, provided the referral stays with Zoho for at least 60 days. You will not be eligible to receive a commission for any subsequent purchases of other Zoho services the customer makes.
A qualified sale is the first purchase that your referral has made subject to the following criteria:
- The prospective customer had signed up within 90 days of first clicking on the affiliate link
- A qualified sale is made within 90 days from the date of signing up
- The customer is not an existing paid customer of Zoho
- The customer signs up in the same data center that you are registered in as an affiliate
For example: If your referral who is not a Zoho customer under any paid subscription plan purchases product A and stays with Zoho for 60 days, you'll earn 15% of the revenue Zoho makes from the purchase in the subsequent 12 months. If the referral buys product B next, you'll not receive commissions on product B.
Will I get the commission for all the products that the referred customer goes on to purchase?
No, you will not be eligible to receive a commission for any subsequent purchases (i.e. cross-sell) made by the same customer.
When will I earn commissions? What if the customer cancels their subscription?
You will earn commissions on each qualified sale after the referral completes 60 days as a Zoho customer. The commission will be paid to you based on the plan chosen by the customer.
- If a customer from a qualified sale is subscribed to an annual subscription plan, you will be eligible to receive commission for the whole year.
- If a customer from a qualified sale is subscribed to a monthly subscription plan, you will be eligible to receive a commission on a monthly basis for a period of one year from the date of the qualified sale. Note: If the customer downgrades to a free subscription plan or terminates their subscription within a period of one year, the commission will only accrue until the date the customer cancels or downgrades the subscription.
What happens if my referral downgrades?
- If a customer from a qualified sale in the monthly subscription plan downgrades or terminates their subscription within a period of one year, the commission will only accrue until the date the customer cancels or downgrades the subscription.
- If a customer from qualified sale is in an annual subscription plan, you will be eligible to receive commission for the whole year.
Will I earn recurring commissions for the referred customer?
No. The commission will only be shared on the revenue earned during the first 12 months after the first qualified purchase of any Zoho product via your affiliate link.
Is there a limit on the number of customers?
There is no limit to the number of customers that you can refer. You are encouraged to introduce as many referrals as you can.
Is there a limit on the commission I can earn?
No, there is no limit on the commission that you can earn from the program.
Note: The role of our affiliate is to spread word about Zoho products and get more people to sign up. To properly compensate these efforts, we have capped the highest commission for a single deal at $25000. For example, if your referral's purchase value is $200K, you are eligible only for $25k and not 15% of that deal value.
If you think this provision might impact you reach out to our support via email@example.com.
Is there a minimum sales requirement?
No, however consistent sales can improve your chances of moving up tiers and also earning increased commissions.
How do I track my earnings?

What is the benefit for end customers?
- They will be eligible for $100 of Zoho wallet credits.
- The credits can be used to purchase any new product of Zoho and comes with a validity of 30 days.
