Tapcart ("we," "us" the "Company") offers you the opportunity to earn rewards by referring friends to try Tapcart. Your participation in the Tapcart Referral Program ("Tapcart Referral Program" or "Program") can earn you commissions to use in conjunction with Tapcart Services, and may also get you additional rewards. We reserve the right to terminate the Program at any time for any reason. The Program is administered by Tapcart, which may outsource certain elements of administration to third parties (collectively "Administrator").

These terms ("Terms") apply to a user's participation in the Program. By participating in the Program, Users agree to use the Program as outlined herein and are consistent with any other terms we may apply to the Program. If you do not agree to these Terms in their entirety, then you cannot register and participate in the Program. Users also cannot wherein so doing, they would violate any applicable law or regulations.

Eligibility

This Program is void where such referral programs are prohibited. Users who refer others to the program are "Referrers"; those who are referred are "Referred Customers." Referrers may be eligible to receive "a reward" for every qualified referral. Referrers must speak and read English, be legally able to participate in the Program, and must be 1) at least the age of majority where they reside, 2) have an existing, valid Tapcart user account, and 3) are otherwise in good standing. When registering for the Program, Referrers must use the same email address that is registered with their existing Tapcart user account. Sorry, no company accounts. Tapcart reserves the right to determine if a Referrer's Tapcart user account is valid based on criteria that include, but is not limited to, Tapcart account activity and ownership, incorporation status, and business affiliation of the user's registered Tapcart email address domain. Participation in the Program represents an ongoing relationship with you, for privacy purposes. Please see Tapcart’s privacy policy for further details on your privacy rights.

Companies and employees of Tapcart Entities or their subsidiaries, affiliates, or promotional agencies, including immediate family and household members, are not eligible.

How It Works

To participate, once you have created your Tapcart account, you can access the Referral Form here to refer another Shopify brand that could benefit from Tapcart. If a user signs up for Tapcart, the referral will receive their payment (dependent on the plan) once the user has their app deployed for  3 months and 3 successful payments. 

The payout structure based on plan: 

  • Enterprise referrals = $1,000
  • Ultimate referrals = $400
  • Core referrals = $200

Payouts will be executed via Bill.com or Paypal on the second Tuesday of each month. Once a member has successfully referred a customer, they will be prompted to fill out a W8 or W9 for standard taxes. Potential taxes and/or reporting are the responsibility of the member.
