Frequently Asked Questions

The Shopify Partner Program gives you two great ways to generate revenue. One is to refer clients to us. You will receive 20% revenue share for each client you refer. The other way is to write and publish Shopify Apps. You can sell your apps on a subscription basis or for a one time fee. You can also offer your app for free in order to generate more exposure for your own company.
Simply sign up for a Shopify Partner Account. Once you’re a partner, you can submit apps to the Shopify App Store and also start signing clients up under your account. You’ll be earning a portion of the revenue Shopify earns from each client from the day you sign them up. Shopify will pay you via PayPal on a regular basis, provided you’ve achieved the minimum balance.
A partner token is a unique URL to provide to your clients. Every partner will get their own unique partner Token. When it's time to create your client’s store, log in to the partner system then select the option to _Create a New Shop_, or provide your client with your partner Token. This will tie the client’s store to your partner Account and the system will start tracking your income.

Effective June 1st, 2012 our Partner payout timing will be changing. Credits to Partner accounts will still be created once our customers pay their associated invoices. However, instead of these credits being paid out immediately via PayPal, they will now be accumulated and paid out on the following schedule:

  • For all credits created between the 1st to and including the 15th of the month, payment will occur 5 business days after the 15th day of the month
  • For all credits created between the 16th to and including the last day of the month, payment will occur 5 business days after the last day of the month

Payments will be delivered to you via PayPal in USD. Any money owed to you will be paid out twice monthly as long as your balance is above $25 USD. If your balance is below $25, it will be held until the next payout period.

Unfortunately, no. Collecting partner earnings on a store run by yourself in whole or in part is fraud and grounds for dismissal from the partner program.
We calculate the revenue owed to the partner based on invoices paid by the client. Once the invoice has been sent from Jaded Pixel to the client and the client has paid, you'll see your revenue tally start to accumulate.
For any payment disputes, contact your partner manager with the full details of the issue. We’ll review your message and see what we can do to get it resolved.
