New Affiliate Platform
Previously, if you wanted to offer an affiliate program for your SureCart powered store, you had to use a third party plugin such as AffiliateWP. From today, SureCart comes with its own built-in affiliate platform.
It comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect such as an affiliate dashboard, automatic referral tracking, referrer type, tracking length, automatic affiliate approval, commission types, lifetime commissions, commission overrides and analytics. SureCart’s WordPress plugin can even (optionally) automatically add the tracking script to your site. One-click payouts will be available in 2024.
SureCart has also released new pricing plans today, including monthly plans and a lifetime plan with an 11-month split pay option. Let’s take a quick look at the new plans.
The plan names have changed as follows:
- Pro plan > Scale plan (gets access to the new affiliate platform).
- Business plan > Grow plan.
- Startup plan (retired) > Upgrade to the Grow plan (price remains the same).
- Free plan > Launch plan.
SureCart is also bringing many premium features to the Launch plan, including order bump, one-click upsell, cart abandonment recovery, free and paid trials, setup fees, manual orders, shipping features, subscription management features, and more.
However, there is a small transaction fee of 1.9% on each transaction on the Launch plan. For the Grow and Scale plans, there are no transaction fees.
Finally, the affiliate platform and licensing system have always been included in the Scale plan (formerly the Pro plan). If you are currently on the free Launch or Grow plan, you can choose to use these features for a small 0.5% fee.
Note that these changes only affect new SureCart stores, not existing ones!
