Referral Partner Agreement Template

Referral Partner Agreement


If you wish to use this document in a scenario that involves personal data, standard clauses for data protection and data processing are available in our GDPR & Data Protection Group.

It is common for e-commerce websites to enter into agreements with other websites for the establishment of links through which customers are referred in exchange for a commission on sales generated through such referrals. This Referral Partner Agreement is designed to establish and regulate such a relationship.

This document works in a very similar fashion to the affiliate agreements and related terms and conditions also available from Simply-docs, however this agreement is marginally simpler and has three key differences:

Only one level of commission is provided for. Under this agreement a one-off commission is paid to the referral partner. No provision is made for commission on repeat business.

Furthermore, this template does not prescribe any form of commission payment structure; a blank schedule is provided to enable users to specify their own.

Finally, this document can be used for the sale of both goods and services.

Optional clauses / phrases are enclosed in square brackets.
