How To Start An Ambassador Program On Shopify

Eddy Chung

So you want to start an ambassador program on your Shopify store – but how can you issue discount codes, track commissions and let ambassadors track their performance?

In this article, we’ll get you setup with an ambassador program – no technical wizardry required!

Install ConvertOut Ambassadors

The first thing you’ll need to do is install ConvertOut.

ConvertOut is an app available here on the Shopify app store.

It lets you track commissions, automatically generate codes for ambassadors and track payouts.

To install the app, simply click the Add app button in the Shopify app store.

Follow the on-screen instructions to get the app installed.

Setup ConvertOut

Setting up ConvertOut is simple, there are only 4 steps to do.

  1. Set your discount and commission percentage
  2. Upload your images for your portal sign up page
  3. Check out your portal on your store
  4. Confirm billing

The onboarding wizard will walk you through each of these steps.

And on the starter plan, you only get charged when an ambassador makes a sale for you!

Share Your Link

Now it’s time to share your sign up link with the world.

Here are some good ideas of where to share it:

  • Your Shopify navigation bar
  • Social media platforms
  • Previous customers
