Hi, @user1000 

For the shopify affiliate program you should fill the application form properly and you much prove that after getting an affiliate you will definitely cover up much audience to convince them to use shopify as a platform after affiliate link click like if you don't have social influence or something then it might be hard to get approved!

Hi @user1000 

I am happy to hear that you are interested in becoming an affiliate with Shopify. I know it can be disheartening if your initial application was denied, but that doesn't mean that you can't become an affiliate in the future.

There are a lot of things to keep in mind when applying for an affiliate position. It is not something that Shopify approves just anyone for, as being an affiliate means you are representing Shopify to your clients and referrals. When applying for affiliate status you want to ensure you are able to provide evidence or proof of your actions, specifically:

  • Strong social media presence.
  • Proven history of development on Shopify, either by creating successful development stores for clients or demonstrative stores for display.
  • That you are incredibly knowledgeable about the Shopify platform and a reliable support for other partners and merchants.
  • That you can bring value and increase the reach of the Shopify brand.

You are not required to be able to have all of those things, but they are all important considerations. 

I would recommend reviewing these resources and also making sure you are an active member of our community forums and developer community.

Hi,

 

Yes that can be true, but the question is, when can I try my chance again for the application?

Because today I am also rejected, but how long do I have to wait until I can make my request again?

 

Thank you!

Hi @Serdo 

 

Thank you for your question and welcome to the community forums as well. 

 

When it comes to reapplying to the affiliate partnership, there is no set timeframe as to when you can. I would definitely give it a few months at least though as our team will definitely be looking for growth upon your reapplication.
