Every top selling brand on Hubba has one thing in common, they're a member of the Hubba Referral Program. The Hubba Referral Program was created with two goals in mind: to get Brands more orders and to make managing your wholesale accounts easier. Our data has shown that Brands who use the Hubba Referral Program have been able to significantly increase the number of wholesale accounts they have, increase their re-order rate, and have increased the efficiency in which they fulfill orders. Overall, these Brands have been able substantially build their business in a short amount of time, and have taken their companies to levels that weren't possible when they were just trying to grow on their own.
The more orders you receive on Hubba, the more frequently you'll be featured on Hubba's search and marketing emails. As a result, you'll receive more orders!
With the Referral Program, you're able to streamline your wholesale accounts into one convenient location, all with no commission. In addition to that, the Buyer you refer will receive a $50 credit (paid for by Hubba) for their first order with you, and you could receive a $50 bonus if they meet our Buyer requirements. Plus, the program is designed to help you gain new wholesale accounts as well, so if the Buyers you refer place more orders (and your order rate increases), that will feed into our system and as a result you'll be featured more frequently within Hubba's search and marketing emails, which translates to more orders. It's an easy win-win for everybody, and it'll help drive more sales through your door!
In this article, we’ll walk you through:
- How referral bonuses work.
- How your buyers get their discount.
- How to send your referral link through emails.
How to Refer a Buyer
At the top of your Hubba page, you'll see a little purple button that says "Invite your wholesale accounts. Give $50. Get $50." Once you click that, you'll see your Brand's custom link that you're able to send to you Buyers. As long as they sign up using your link, they'll be attributed to you and you won't pay any commission on any orders they place with you via Hubba.
How Do Referral Bonuses Work?
Each new qualified buyer that orders with you through Hubba will receive $50 off their first order. In addition, you will receive $50 for each qualified buyer that signs-up through you. You will also have 0% commission on all orders from your referred buyers for life! For further details on what counts as a "qualified Buyer", please refer to the Hubba Referral Program terms & conditions: (https://hubba.zendesk.com/Hubba-Referral-Program-Terms-Conditions)
At the end of the month, Hubba will calculate the total referral bonuses ($50 for each accepted qualified buyer) for your brand. Within 10 days after the end of the month, this total referral amount will be deposited directly into your bank account or issued through a check.
How Do Your Buyers Get Their Discount?
Your wholesale buyers will see immediate benefits with Hubba and will be glad you referred them! After signing up with Hubba through your referral link, your wholesale buyers will automatically get $50 off their first order of $51 or greater when they place an order with you on Hubba. Best part, we fund the $50 so you don’t have to!
How to Send Your Referral Link Through Emails?
Emails are a great way to let new and existing buyers to know you’re on Hubba and start seamlessly ordering from you. Remember, they will get $50 off their first order (on us!) which is a great deal for both your new and your existing accounts.
Whether you are sending a personal email to a buyer or running an email campaign in MailChimp, include your referral link to let everyone know!
