Get ready to make the move

The Leadpages partnership team is thrilled to announce that we’re upgrading our partnership management platform to bring you greater clarity and transparency, and make it easier for you to succeed as a partner. We will be migrating from Impact to PartnerStack, an affiliate platform better suited for recurring revenue SaaS programs like ours.

With a big change like this, we’re sure you have questions. We will provide additional details as we get closer to the official transition date (July 1, 2021). For now, please see our answers to our most anticipated questions.

And if you have a question we didn’t answer here, please send it to affiliates@leadpages.com

Already have a PartnerStack account?
If you use a different email for PartnerStack than for Impact, let us know prior to June 15th so that we can migrate your historic data to your existing PartnerStack account. Submit your updated information here.

What will I need to do to migrate?  

First, read this page, and make sure you're signed up for program migration updates.

Mark your calendar for July 1, 2021. That's when you’ll receive an email invitation from support@leadpages.com to claim your PartnerStack account.

  • Note: if our emails currently land in your Promotions tab, we recommend moving them into your Primary inbox to reduce the risk of missing the updates.

New to PartnerStack?
Create a PartnerStack account with the same email address as your Impact account and your invite to the Leadpages program is automatically accepted. Then, in order to withdraw your funds, you must first connect a payment provider: either your Stripe or PayPal account (learn more here).

Already have a PartnerStack account (with the same email address as you use for Impact)? 
You’ll receive an email in early July, inviting you to join the Leadpages program. If you use the same email address to log into both PartnerStack and Impact, the program will appear alongside any pre-existing brand programs within your PartnerStack account.

In case you can’t find or don’t see the email invite to Leadpages’ program on partnerstack, you can easily access your new PartnerStack account by entering the email address you use for Impact into the password reset page from PartnerStack. Again—be sure to use the same email address as your Impact account so that all your historic data is waiting for you when you log in!

What if I have different email addresses between PartnerStack and Impact?

If the email address you use for PartnerStack is different from your Impact account, please let us know so that we can work with their team to migrate your historic Impact data to your existing PartnerStack account.

For the smoothest possible migration, please let us know prior to June 15th.

When does the migration to PartnerStack begin?

Behind the scenes, the Leadpages team has already begun the process. From your perspective, your ability to join our PartnerStack account begins July 1, 2021. We will do our best to make this transition as smooth as possible. We have built in a long lead time before the migration to assist you in the process, and a full month of overlap with our existing program to ensure your data is transferred.

What happens to my Impact account and links?

Your Impact account continues through the end of July. As of August 1, your affiliate links within Impact will no longer receive credit for new referrals of Leadpages. However, any previously referred customers to Leadpages will continue to earn you commissions within PartnerStack upon their next transaction after July 1.

Any free trial started from an Impact link between June 17 and July 31 will be credited to your PartnerStack account upon successful payment in July or August.

Starting August 1, your Impact links will point to an error page, and you will not receive credit.

Can I do anything now to make this process go more smoothly?

Yes! We recommend a few actions on your part.

1

Make sure you're seeing our emails
Whitelist support@leadpages.com and affiliates@leadpages.com to make sure our emails are coming directly into your inbox instead of a Promotions tab. We will be sending you updates throughout the transition period that you won’t want to miss.

2

Set up redirects for your primary and secondary affiliate links
Using links like yourname.com/leadpages and yourname.com/lpwebinar to promote your Impact links now makes it much easier to change those redirects to point to your new PartnerStack links when they become available after June 1. We’ve created a tutorial on creating redirect links here.

3

Find your Impact links "in the wild"
Track down the links you’ve published to your blog, in autoresponders, PDFs, course materials, etc. Replace the raw affiliate link with the redirect(s) you created above. If your link looks like https://leadpages.pxf.io/c/#####/390538/5673 - it will no longer work after August 1.

4

Set a calendar event for July 1
Mark your calendar for July 1 to modify your redirect links to point to PartnerStack instead of Impact. We will also send you email reminders throughout the transition period.

What happens to my past referrals? Do I still earn commissions?

Yes! Behind the scenes, our team is working with the team at PartnerStack to link recurring transactions from your referrals to your new PartnerStack affiliate account. We anticipate a smooth migration process but if you find a discrepancy, our partnerships support team will be happy to work with you.

Will I see any other changes in the new program?

Yes, there are a few minor changes to the program due to the way PartnerStack operates.

See your commissions at a glance
Your comprehensive PartnerStack dashboard will clearly display the sum of your referrals’ transactions and your estimated commission (PartnerStack calls these "rewards"). Then, simply click into the ‘Rewards’ tab to see which commission tiers you’ve achieved.

Enjoy a longer attribution window
That’s right! You’ll now have a 90-day cookie lifetime (vs. the current 30-day). That’s 3x more time for us to convert your referral traffic into customers and lifetime commissions.

Receive your payouts quicker than ever before
Rewards are typically paid out on the 13th of each month. Keep in mind that there can be unpredicted delays in payouts that could result in your rewards coming after the 13th. Once your rewards have been approved and paid for by Leadpages, your funds will be available for cash out on the Rewards & Withdrawals page.

(Finally!) See your referrals (by name and email)
Want better visibility into the people you refer to Leadpages? You’ve got it! They’ll show up in the ‘Referrals’ tab of your PartnerStack dashboard. You can now easily:

  • Keep track of your referral's activity (sign-ups, purchases, and company)
  • Filter between different referral statuses; Sign-ups, Paid, Lost, etc.
  • Search your referrals by name or email in the search bar

Commission tiers set on a rolling 30-day basis
Rather than resetting your commission tiers every calendar month, they’re now dynamically calculated on a rolling 30-day basis.

The full revised terms of the Leadpages affiliate program will be made available to you prior to July 1.

Why is Leadpages switching to PartnerStack?

We’re grateful for the efforts our partners put forward in promoting Leadpages, and wish to provide an affiliate dashboard and commission reporting experience that’s crystal clear and motivating for improved performance.

PartnerStack provides us with a more robust toolset to support your promotional efforts. Impact’s strengths as a platform lie within e-commerce product sales, while PartnerStack excels with SaaS companies and our recurring revenue model.

In addition, the feedback we received from our top affiliates over the last two years was extremely helpful in guiding this decision.

Part of what you’ll love about PartnerStack is:

  • An improved dashboard to view your transactions and commissions
  • 3x longer cookie attribution (now 90 days)
  • Quicker payout schedule (on the 13th of every month immediately following the referring month)
  • Ability to see your referrals by name and email
  • Access to more sales enablement content
  • Access to various challenges and contests to boost your monthly payout

Will my activity in PartnerStack accurately reflect what I’m earning?

Yes! Your affiliate dashboard within PartnerStack will clearly display the sum of your referrals’ transactions and your estimated reward (payout). Then, simply click into the ‘Rewards’ tab to see which commission tiers you’ve achieved for each transaction (Bronze 10%, Silver 40%, Gold 50%).

Will I be able to see who I’ve referred to Leadpages?

Yes! You will be able to follow up with referrals who’ve started their Leadpages account thanks to your recommendation. You’ll see their name (or business name) and email address so you can follow up with them for additional support, provide bonuses, etc.

You’ll also be able to easily:

  • Keep track of your referral's activity (sign-ups, purchases, and company)
  • Filter between different referral statuses; Sign-ups, Paid, Lost, etc.
  • Search your referrals by name or email in the search bar

I'm not getting email updates about the affiliate program. How can I get those in the future?

Simply let us know where you'd like to receive affiliate program updates here.

Who do I contact if I have questions about my PartnerStack account?
