Today is a great day, we are ready to go live with our long awaited for Partner Revenue Sharing. Now you can make money by creating great Flattr apps!
We share half of our revenue with you
People have asked us since we started why they only get 90%, even though lately it seams like giving only 70% has become some kind of industry standard we still think our cut is quite high. But, there has always been a reason for this. We want to share!
Why do we do this?
If you have a service that integrates with Flattr, you wont get a dime. Despite all the flattrs that passes through your service, the money is never for you. We think that is wrong. So now you can apply to become a partner and receive money for every flattr you facilitate via your service.
How much do I get?
We think a service that enables flattring is as important as we are, so we think the fair deal is 50/50. We have a 10% fee now and would love to give you half of what we make from that. (Minus any taxes, transaction fees etc, that might be related.)
This is how you do it
- Apply for a Partner Account on partner.flattr.com by signing in with your flattr account. Partner Revenue Sharing is open to any professional service created and run by a business. This means you will have to provide proof that you are a company and for most EU countries a valid VAT-id.
- Wait for us to verify your info. We just want to check the above.
- Create an Application or Revenue sharing key. To enable the revenue sharing you need to create the application in the partner system or if you use JS buttons add the revenue sharing key to all buttons. (If you already have an application we can move it for you, just ask.)
- Promote your service like crazy! The more people you get to use it, the more money you get.
- Request a payout. Once you got more then €50 on your partner account you can request a payout in the partner system.
This is a public beta
The partner system and revenue sharing have been in closed beta for a while but this is the first time it sees public light. So bare with us if anything is strange or you don’t know what to do and contact us so we can help you out and improve the system.
Time to get the developer hats on!
For all you developers that right now got the crave to create the ultimate Flattr app you can read up on all developer goodies over at developers.flattr.net. Go kick ass!
For all you that already have an application that you want to add revenue sharing to, apply for a partner account and drop us a message and we will enable it on your existing Application.
