Add a Performance Bonus to a Contract

You can specify how performance bonuses are applied by adding terms to your contract and using the dropdowns and fields to configure payout options. You can choose to apply the bonus to your entire contract or to a specific group of partners only.


This article only explains how to configure your performance bonus payout settings. For more information on performance bonuses, see Performance Bonus FAQ.

Performance bonus settings reference

Increase payout & for all actions

With this setting, if the total number of partner-driven actions exceeds your defined bonus tier, then all actions will pay out at the higher bonus rate as long as they occur within the locking period.

E.g., if you define the tier at 10 actions, and the partner drives 20 actions, then all 20 actions will earn a bonus.

Increase payout & for actions past each tier

With this setting, only the actions exceeding your defined bonus tiers will pay out at the higher bonus rate.

E.g., If you define the tier at 10 actions, and the partner drives 20 actions, then only actions 11 - 20 will earn a bonus.

Pay a fixed bonus

Select this setting if you would rather reward partners with a set amount instead of an amount based on a percentage of the sale.

Add a performance bonus to payout groups
