Table of Contents
The Partner Sign Up link provides an easy way for potential prospects to apply to join your Partner Program. You can use this link to promote your Partner program across your website, connections and social media. Interested prospects can apply to your program by filling out the details.
Finding the Partner Sign Up URL
Navigate to Control Center - Configuration. The link to the public Partner Sign Up is on the General tab, in the Links section. You can access both your Partner Sign Up URLs here, and the login URLs for your team, Partners and Advertisers.
Employee Users with the Partner Manager designation also have access to a Partner Signup link (Control Center - My Account > General / Partner Sign Up Link ) that will automatically list themselves as the Partner Manager for the applicant when the form is submitted. If your Partner Managers are responsible for recruiting their own new Partners, this is a very helpful tool.
Customizing the Signup Form
To edit the Affiliate/Partner Sign Up Page navigate to Control Center - Configuration > UI Customization tab > Partner Sign Up - Edit.
The General tab offers the following options:
Use External Sign Up URL – Allows you to use an external URL to host your Partner/Affiliate Sign Up Page outside of Everflow.
Customize Header – Allows you to add a custom HTML header to the Sign Up Page. This will be displayed at the top of the Affiliate/Partner Sign Up Page.
Customize Confirmation - Allows you to add a custom HTML message to the Confirmation Page. This will be displayed on the Confirmation Page that is shown after the Submit Application button is clicked.
Legal Entity Name
Company/Individual/Website Name - Please note that this label can be customized below, and if Required is toggled to OFF, Everflow will use the provided First & Last Name of the applicant to create the Partner name when the application is submitted.
Language - Please note that if enabled, this selection will determine the language used in the Partner UI. Spanish is currently the only other language available; please speak to the Customer Success team if you are interested in requesting a new language.

*Pro Tip* you can also add ?referral_code=ENTER_VALUE_HERE to the end of your signup URL, and that value will automatically be passed into the Referral Code field

Fields - A variety of input fields are available so that you may ask questions very specific to your program, and set validation rules around the responses provided by the applicant. A preview of the field will populate below the Custom Field allowing you to view your new field before saving.
If you have Custom Fields you would like to group together, you may add an Additional Section to house your Custom Fields. In the example below, we have created an Additional Section dedicated to social media profiles.

There are several ways to access the new Pending application:
Navigate to the list of pending Partners by selecting Partners - Manage > Pending
From the pending records section, you may check the box to the left of the Partner(s), and use the drop down to approve/reject them individually or in bulk, or click the vertical dots on the far right of any row to approve/reject individually.
Click the pending partners from the top of your dashboard.
Under Control Center - My Account > Notifications > Partners, enable the email notification for New Partner Signup. When enabled you will receive an email each time a new Partner signs up to your program, with a link to their details.
If you wish to view the application submission info before making an approval decision, please click on the name of the Partner from the Pending view, and use the Approve/Reject buttons at the top of the screen.
When Auto Approval + Email Verification IS enabled:
Partner Signup Email Verification
In the Global Settings card on the Control Center - Configuration > General tab, you will see an option to Enable Partner Email Verification. Edit the Global Settings to Enable or Disable this feature.
When enabled, this feature will require potential Affiliates/Partners to verify their email address after submitting the Partner Signup form. This will cause the potential Partner’s application to go to a new Unverified tab of the Partners - Manage section. From here you can click on the three dots to the far right to either Resend email or Bypass verification.
When the potential Partner submits their application they will receive an email at the email address they entered and confirmed on their application, which will ask them to verify their email via verification link.
Once their email address has been verified, the potential Partner will move to the Pending tab where you can Approve or Reject their application. Bypassing verification will also move them to the Pending tab.
**Please note: If Auto Approval is Enabled, the Global Settings for Enable Partner Email Verification will be Enabled by default and cannot be Disabled.
