How It Works

Make some money on the side by introducing new developers to Backendless. You earn 50% of all purchases by referred users within Backendless Cloud for 12 months, plus your referred users get 15% off for 12 months as well.


When you’re accepted, you’ll receive a unique affiliate link and discount code to share with your audience wherever you engage with them.


Share your link and discount offer in content, ads, social posts and more. There’s no limit to how much you can earn, per customer or overall.


No matter which Backendless product your referee chooses, you get paid 50% commission on all payments for 12 months – with no limits.

Can I sign up on behalf of my clients through my own referral link?

We recommend you either sign up from your clients’ computers (if possible) OR sign up your clients as usual (without a referral link) and send us an email with their sign up email addresses.

Can I sign up using my own referral link?

No. Unfortunately, self-referrals are strictly prohibited. The aim of a referral program is to encourage affiliates and ambassadors to spread the word about our product(s), not to get discounts. Attempting to circumvent this rule is grounds for immediately expulsion from the affiliate program.

When will I get paid?

All payouts are processed at the end of the month for the previous month’s commissions. We’ll email you when the payout is completed.

Can I be an Affiliate if I'm on the Partner Plan?

Join now and you can! Contact us and if you are one of the first 30 Partners to also become an affiliate, you will be able to receive commission from and offer affiliate discounts to your agency clientele.

Do I get paid if my referral signs up for the Springboard Plan?

It depends. If the user unlocks the plan via Backendless Missions, then no, you will not receive any payment, nor will this start the clock on your 12 months of commission. Conversely, if the user purchases the Springboard Plan with cash, you will receive your commission and the 12 month clock will start.
