Partner Test Accounts for Brands

As a brand, you may at times want access to the partner user interface. This can give you a better understanding of the partner experience and enable you to answer certain questions that partners may have. In order to access the partner platform, you will have to create your own partner test account.

Use cases for a partner test account

  • To have a better understanding of the partner UI and signup experience

  • To test your own links, ads, and to create test orders

  • To receive your own newsletters and view what partners see

  • To receive partner-facing release notes from and keep up-to-date with partner-side changes.


The steps below demonstrate how to create a partner account without applying to the Brands Marketplace. Your partner account will be signed up directly to your program and will not be visible to other brands.

Step 1: Create a partner test account

  1. From the left navigation menu, select engage-icon__v69b8313.svg [Engage] → Contracts → Template Terms.

  2. Hover over the terms to which you want your test account signed up, and in the Actions column, select caret-down-solid.svg [Drop-down menu] → Get Branded Links.

  3. Open your sign-up link.

    • You will be taken to the partner-facing sign-up page for your program.

  4. Select Sign up.

  5. Your own program terms will be presented for review. Accept the terms.

  6. You will be requested to either log in or create a partner account. Select Sign up with email.

  7. Fill in the fields as prompted, using an email address that is not associated with an existing account.


    Use your same brand username and password when creating your partner account. This will allow you to switch easily between the two accounts once logged in. For more information on how to toggle between accounts, see the Toggle between your brand and test accounts section below.

  8. Select Get started.

  9. On the pages that follow, enter the same personal, company, and promotional information as your brand account.

  10. Once you have completed the process, you will receive an email from confirming the creation of your user profile. Follow the prompts to activate your profile and create a new password.

Step 2: Approve your test account

  1. Log in to your brand account.

  2. From your left navigation bar, select engage-icon__v69b8313.svg [Engage] → Partners → Applications.

  3. Locate your own program application, and at the end of the row, select ellipsis-h-solid__1_.svg [More] → Accept.

Toggle between your brand and test accounts

  1. Log in to your brand account.

  2. Select your program name in the upper-left corner to expand the dropdown and view your other accounts.

    • From here, you can toggle between your brand and partner test accounts.
