"Thinkific’s affiliate program is one of my favorites because of its great commissions, strong conversion rates, and super helpful affiliate team. Not only are they the best online course platform, but they also have one of the best affiliate programs in the SaaS world today."

Adam Enfroy

A Thinkific review was one of the first pieces of affiliate content I posted on Learning Revolution, both because it’s a great platform and because the company does a better job than any I have worked with in actively supporting its affiliates.

Jeff Cobb

Thinkific is one of my favorite affiliate programs as they not only have a great platform but have a recurring and high-converting program as well. I’ve compared Thinkific vs Teachable as platforms (Thinkific won) and when comparing affiliate programs, Thinkific is again a clear winner.

Ron Stefanski

I enjoy creating courses on Thinkific, so becoming an affiliate was a no-brainer because I genuinely love the tool. It’s a brilliant way to generate passive income! Thinkific has never let me down, and its affiliate program is only taking me higher.

Referrals & Links

If there is a different link on Thinkific that you would like to create a Custom Link for, simply message the team:

  • Which link you would like created
  • What you want the link to look like

We offer up to 3 new complimentary custom links that we can create for you.

When you become a Thinkific Partner, you’ll receive access to your default Affiliate link, which we send to you via email. You can also access your link under the PartnerStack dashboard under Links.

The default link will go to https://partners.thinkific.com/omf/. You can also enable the Recommended Links that you can use to share instead. For example:

  • https://www.thinkific.com/pricing/: This link goes to our pricing page. Best used when your content compares different plans.

PartnerStack is the Affiliate platform we use to run the Thinkific Partner Program. You can always visit your dashboard on PartnerStack to access your links, referral activity, your payouts, and also reach the Thinkific Partnerships Team anytime via message.

Everyone that visits Thinkific through your unique referral link is tracked via a browser cookie that lasts 90 days. If they return any time within the 90 days and sign up for Thinkific, you’ll be credited as the referee. If they click the referral link again, the 90 days restarts. Important note: if they click on another affiliate’s link, the cookie will no longer track for you. Make sure your referrals use only your link so that you get credited properly!

If your referral doesn’t use your link, we can’t track that referral for you and thus you won’t get properly credited! Make sure that you are ensuring your referral uses your link so that you can receive commissions!


You can keep track of your payouts under the Rewards & Withdrawals section in your Partnerstack dashboard. Rewards are paid out after the 13th of each month, after we verify the referral.

You can choose how to get paid for your commissions. You can connect either Paypal or Stripe to your account in order to cash out your payments. Keep in mind that there you need a minimum of $25 in order to cash out your payment.

If you notice that you didn’t get paid, here are some things you can do to troubleshoot what might have happened.

  • Go to your dashboard and visit the Referrals section
  • Check the status of your referrals
  • If you notice something is off, you can check with the person you referred to see if they used your link to sign up

In most cases, the biggest reason why a referral isn’t tracked is because the person referred didn’t actually use the affiliate link. In these cases, we cannot properly attribute the referral to you.

Now, if it appears that the referral did track correctly on your dashboard but it’s not showing properly under Rewards & Withdrawals in your dashboard, you can inform the team by sending us a message.

We’ll reward you with 30% of the recurring revenue on your referrals for as long as your referral is a paying Thinkific customer. Note: Plus plans receive a different commission structure.

Keep in mind that you only start earning once your referrals become paying customers of Thinkific. If your referrals sign up for a 1-month free trial of a paid plan, you can start earning commissions after 30 days. If your referrals sign up for Thinkific’s free plan with your link, and upgrade to a paid account right away, you can earn even sooner!


You can promote Thinkific to your audience according to your existing channels. For example, here are a few great places to start:

  • Your mailing list
  • Your social media channels (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram etc)
  • Your website
  • Your blog
  • Your communities (in-person and online)
  • Your friends and family

Can I provide a bonus offer?

Absolutely! You can give your audience a 1-month free trial of Thinkific’s Start or Grow plans by creating this link in your dashboard under Links. Got questions? Message the team.
