As both an incentive and an appreciation, we are offering our Umbraco partners the opportunity to enroll for the Umbraco Cloud Referral Program. With this program, we want to encourage you to take on more and more projects on Umbraco Cloud - not just because of the service’s many great benefits, but also because it will guarantee you a recurring profit. The more Umbraco Cloud projects you register, the higher your recurring profit will be.
The Umbraco Cloud Referral Program allows enrolled Umbraco partners to receive a referral fee according to the following plan:

How does the referral program work?
Gold and Certified Partners: You have already received an invitation to enroll. If not, write to Ilham on email@example.com to get an invitation.
Registered Partners: When you register as a Registered Partner you’ll automatically be asked if you want to join the referral program. IF you forgot to sign up, then please contact Ilham to get an invitation.
I’m not a partner: Then sign up for the Registered Partner program and remember to leave the tick in the “Yes, I want to sign up for the Umbraco Cloud Referral Program… “ -box during the sign-up process.
How do you use the Umbraco Cloud Reference number ?
After signing up for the program, you’ll receive a unique Umbraco Cloud Reference number consisting of 4 digits. Remember this number as this is the number that will ensure you your referral fee on projects created in Umbraco Cloud.
You register your Umbraco Cloud Reference number during your checkout in the field: Purchase order / Umbraco Cloud Reference number, as shown below:
When does your referral fee start?
Your referral fee will start to kick in when you’ve registered at least 3 Umbraco Cloud Starter projects or 1 Professional project with your Umbraco Cloud Reference number.
In case you or your client sign up for a project without indicating the Umbraco Cloud Reference number, you as a partner, are invited to send us the relevant information in order to link the project to your account.
What if the 3 Umbraco Cloud Starter projects could not be completed within a short period?
No worries. There’s no time limit for when you are to have reached the 3 Umbraco Cloud Starter Projects.
And because we’re the Friendly CMS, we will make sure that you start collecting the referral fee from your first project sign-up. However, the first payment will be made to you when you have at least three Umbraco Cloud Starter projects or one Professional project and you have reached the payment threshold of 100 € (please see "Do I get my referral fee paid out straight away?").
How many Umbraco Cloud projects are you allowed to register?
As many as you like! There’s no maximum limit. And it does not take a math genius to figure out that by registering more and more projects with your Umbraco Cloud Reference number, you’ll automatically ensure yourself a higher and higher monthly recurring referral fee. Winner!
What if you add an extra environment to your project, will this be included in your referral fee?
Yes, extra environments will also be included in your referral fee calculations. Hence, the more environments you add to your project, the more your recurring referral fee will be.
But remember, environments do not count for projects thus we still require you to have at least 3 Umbraco Cloud Starter projects or one Professionnel project before you’ll be able to get your hands on your referral fee.
Do you get your referral fee paid out straight away?
Perhaps you will. Perhaps not straight away - but you will definitely get it!
The referral fee will be paid out to you every time you reach the payment threshold of 100€. So it all depends on how many projects you register with your Umbraco Cloud Reference number.
And remember, due to the recurring nature of the referral fee, it might just be a matter of a few months before you have your referral fee in your hands for you to spend on whatever you like.
