How the Affiliate Program Works


Educative provides 20% commission on every sale that occurs through your affiliate link. (Details on how this is tracked are below.)

For reference, the average transaction size has historically been more than $50.


When a learner accesses the course with a URL containing your unique affiliate ID, we allocate a cookie referencing your affiliate ID. The cookie remains valid for 30 days.

On each subsequent visit through the affiliate link, the cookie is renewed for another 30 days. Any sale within this 30 day period counts as an affiliate sale, even if it isn’t of the specific course that brought the learner to Educative.

Tracking and reporting:

You can view the sales attributed to you by visiting your affiliate dashboard at the following URL:


The standard payout method is Paypal. Educative sends payments on 15th of every month (or on the following Monday if 15th is a weekend/holiday) for sales completed two months prior.

For example, you will receive your payment for August 2020 sales on October 15, 2020. This one month lag is to account for the 30 day return policy.

Expectations from affiliates:

  1. The first and foremost rule is to avoid spam. Educative reserves the right to deactivate affiliate accounts engaging in behavior that negatively impacts our brand.

  2. Try to share thoughtful content where you feel learners will genuinely benefit from our courses.

  3. Avoid sharing links with your affiliate IDs on social forums such as HackerNews and Reddit. This can get Educative banned from those forums.
