Welcome to our Refer-a-Friend Program Terms & Conditions (our “Terms”)! We greatly appreciate your sharing AppSumo with your network!  

Keep in mind that you are legally bound by these Terms, our Terms of Use, and our Privacy Policy when you participate in the Refer-a-Friend Program.

But read on to learn about making money with AppSumo! 

Existing AppSumo Customers (“Referrers”) can refer friends to the AppSumo website using their Refer-a-Friend referral program link (“Referral Link”). Referred friends who click the Referral Link and purchase a Product from AppSumo are a “Referred Customer”.

Eligibility. To qualify as a Referrer, you must be a Customer of AppSumo. AppSumo’s Refer-a-Friend Program cannot be used by businesses for affiliate lead generation. By participating in the program, you are agreeing to AppSumo’s Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and the Refer-a-Friend Program terms provided herein.

Referred Customer. The Referred Customer and the Referrer cannot be the same person. For example, a person cannot use two email addresses and be eligible as both a Referred Customer and a Referrer. A Referred Customer must be a new Customer who purchases a Product from AppSumo for the first time.

Referral Rewards. Referrers shall earn a reward of AppSumo Credits to be applied to future purchases (“Referral Reward”) when a Referred Customer makes their first purchase on the Platform, subject to these terms (“Qualified Purchase”). In other words, additional/repeat purchases made by a Referred Customer are not counted as additional Qualified Purchases for which a Referral Reward could be earned. A Referral Reward shall only be credited to the account of the Referrer fourteen (14) days after the date of a Qualified Purchase if such Qualified Purchase was not refunded during such fourteen (14) day period (“Refund Period”). The Refund Period is subject to change upon notice. Such changed Refund Period shall apply to Qualified Purchases dated immediately after the date such notice was given.  The Referral Reward is typically $10 of AppSumo Credits, but AppSumo reserves the right to change the value of the Referral Reward at any time.

Referred Customer Discount. By clicking on a Referral Link a Referred Customer shall obtain a coupon that will reduce the cost of their first purchase.  Typically the coupon will be $10, but AppSumo reserves the right to change the value of the coupon at any time.

Applicable Law and Marketing Rules. Customer represents and warrants that when using the Referral Link it will comply with all laws, rules, and regulations, including, but not limited to, the CAN-SPAM Act and guidance from the Federal Trade Commission regarding online advertising and marketing, such as that which can be found at For example, when using a Referral Link, Customer shall clearly explain that it will be compensated under the AppSumo Refer-a-Friend Program. Any violation or suspected violation of this section is expressly prohibited and is grounds for immediate termination of Customer’s account, forfeiture of all or a portion of Referral Rewards, and/or exclusion from AppSumo’s Refer-a-Friend program.

Termination. AppSumo reserves the right to terminate this agreement at any time and for any reason or no reason. AppSumo shall honor accrued Referral Reward credit that was earned pursuant to these terms prior to termination.

Right to Cancel Program or Change Terms. AppSumo reserves the right to cancel the Refer-a-Friend Program or to change these terms at any time in its sole discretion.
