Commissions: Recurring Revenue

As an authorized reseller, Certified Partners sell the software and required implementation services directly to their customers, with the option to bundle it with their own services.

You'll earn recurring commissions on the monthly subscription price for the apps you sell. You’ll bill the customer directly for the implementation services, and you’ll have the flexibility to package and price the services in a way that best fits your business.

Infusionsoft offers live training courses to obtain certification multiple times throughout the year. See our upcoming training classes.

First, you must meet the minimum requirements: knowledge of Infusionsoft, an established business and approval from the Infusionsoft partner program manager. To apply, go to http://www.infusionsoft.com/partners/certified-partners/application. Once we review and approve your application, you may pay the program fees and register for a live training course. Once you successfully pass the test administered on the last day of the live training course and sign the program contract, you will be an Infusionsoft Certified Partner.

Depending on which level you’re at, you’ll earn between 10%-25% of the recurring monthly subscription for each qualified sale. Example: if your client purchases an Infusionsoft subscription at $299/month and you’re at the Platinum level (25%), you’ll earn $74.75 each month for that sale for as long as the client continues to pay Infusionsoft and you remain in the Certified Partner program. See the Certified Partner chart.

If you'd like to certify more than one person from your organization, we offer discounts for your employees according to the program tier you participate in. See the fees section for details. To register additional employees from your company, send an email to [email protected] after you have enrolled and paid for the first person.

Infusionsoft has over 18,000 customers who are looking for ways to grow sales and save time. Many of them need additional services that Infusionsoft doesn't offer, such as integrations, web development, custom software development and software design. Certified Developers are experts in these types of services and Infusionsoft’s API. 

The Infusionsoft Certified Partners program is a community of marketing agencies, VAR’s, consultants, developers and more who help small businesses succeed by using Infusionsoft to grow sales and save time.

Infusionsoft has over 18,000 customers who are looking for ways to grow sales and save time. Many of them need services, such as sales and marketing strategies, web development, copywriting, design, integrations and ongoing consulting. Infusionsoft Certified Partners specialize in these types of services that complement the Infusionsoft solution.

Yes! As part of the live training course, you will be fully trained on the same proven systems and processes Infusionsoft uses to help thousands of small businesses grow and automate. As an Infusionsoft Certified Partner, you'll be qualified to provide implementation services to your clients.

A qualified sale is when a new customer signs up and pays for an Infusionsoft subscription and upfront service fees.

There are three ways we track Certified Partner referrals and sales:

  1. We’ll give you unique tracking links to share with your network. When someone clicks on your link, a cookie is set in their browser for 120 days. Once that person fills out a form on the Infusionsoft website, we’ll read that cookie and know that you referred them.
  2. You’ll also be able to manually register leads at www.infusionsoft.com/leadregistration.
  3. You’ll also have your own re-seller cart where you can process Infusionsoft purchases. Any sales that go through your cart will be attributed to you.

We pay the last referring partner or Affiliate. Whichever partner/Affiliate had the most recent link click or manual lead registration prior to the time of the sale will earn the commission.

Commission checks are sent out on the 20th of each month for commissions earned during the previous month. (Example: if you make a sale in January, you’ll get paid on February 20th.)

Note that commissions are only paid in proportion to the amount a customer pays on an invoice, and when the total amount earned is at $100 or more.

Yes. You will receive access to them once your partner application has been approved.

You will hear back from us within two business days after you have submitted your application.

When your referrals fill out an Infusionsoft form, you will be able to see them as a lead in your partner portal. If the lead “disappears” from the portal (is no longer visible), this means another partner was assigned as latest referring partner. You are welcome to manually register the lead to regain your status as last referring partner if the referral is still in the prospect stage.

Certified Partners that do not meet minimum performance requirements may be downgraded to bronze status. As a bronze Certified Partner, you will receive 10% recurring commission per qualified sale on any new sales you generate under that program.

Note: Bronze Certified Partners do not have a minimum sales requirement.

Infusionsoft promotes our Certified Partners to our users, employees and partner community. We refer our customers only to those providers who are certified by Infusionsoft. Only Certified Partners will be listed in our Marketplace, ensuring our customers are working with partners who have completed the live training course, passed the exam and maintain positive customer reviews and retention.

No. Only Infusionsoft Certified Partners will be listed in our Marketplace in the Services section.

Yes, 100% attendance is required. Each day of the four-day training course will begin at 8:00 AM and conclude at 5:00 PM. We suggest making appropriate arrangements in your business to allow you to be completely focused on the training during this time.

Yes. As part of the Infusionsoft Certified Partners contract you'll sign, you'll be required to provide quality services, be responsive to both Infusionsoft and Infusionsoft customers and maintain a high standard of work ethics. Infusionsoft Certified Partners pledge to conduct their business according to Infusionsoft's core values. If we receive multiple customer complaints or deem that you do not meet these standards, you will be removed from this program without a refund of program fees.

All program fees are non-refundable. If you do not pass the certification test, you may re-take the exam for $500. You may elect to re-take the live training course as well, for no additional fee. The exam will be offered on the last day of the course only. The exam must be taken live.

Certifications last for one year. To remain an Infusionsoft Certified Partner after one year, you'll need to pass an online recertification test, participate in Continuing Education provided by Infusionsoft and pay the renewal fees. See the Fees section for details.

Yes, once certified, you can receive additional training and earn badges in specialty areas like Developer, CustomerHub and GroSocial.

Coming soon: More certifications to expand your offerings and increase your earning potential – Infusionsoft support, sales and marketing, kickstarts, and more!

Once an employee who is certified for $500 leaves your company, he or she can 1.) obtain a primary certification, or 2.) move their certification under another primary Certified Partner.

Infusionsoft will pay commissions to the primary Certified Partner’s company only.

Each company needs one primary Certified Partner. If the Primary Certified Partner of your company does not renew, you will need to designate another person from your company to become the primary Certified Partner and pay the $1500 annual renewal fee.

One Marketplace listing is allotted to each Primary Certified Partner who pays the full program fee. Additional employees certified at the reduced rate will be listed on the primary Certified Partners Marketplace listing.

You can register an employee for the training course at the reduced rate of $500 as long as your certification is active.

We do not require you to use the software for a year. Rather, we recommend that you attend the training with an advanced, working knowledge of Infusionsoft. We have created an online pre-test you can access to help you gauge your Infusionsoft knowledge once you have registered for a course. We have an online pre-course available to help build your Infusionsoft knowledge as well. To gain access to the pre-course, please email [email protected].
