Fill out/provide your paperwork to receive revenue share
To receive revenue share (commissions) you have earned when your registered domains/customers purchase HubSpot, you must complete the appropriate paperwork.
- You can fill out and submit your ACH/Wire Form and W-8/W-9 tax forms from within your partner portal. Step-by-step instructions can be found here.
- If you are located in a region where your customer commissions may be subject to VAT/GST, you will need to submit a VAT/GST invoice every quarter to receive your commissions
- Invoices should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you are a partner in Colombia, you will need to submit additional documents to receive your commissions, including: RUT, Bank Certificate, SSN proof of payment document (if applicable), and a quarterly invoice.
Revenue share payments are paid out on a quarterly basis. If you do not provide the required paperwork within 6 months immediately following the close of a Qualified Transaction, those revenue share payments will be forfeited. Please review Section 4 of the HubSpot Solutions Partner Program Agreement (HSPPA) for more information on Revenue Share and Payment.
Once a Qualified Transaction is finalized you become eligible for Partner Revenue Share. Partner Revenue Share is equal to 20% of the monthly recurring net revenue and is paid for as many months as the customer’s subscription remains active with HubSpot for the product line(s).
For more information about Partner Revenue Share, please review the frequently asked questions.
Register your current and prospective client domains:
You will need to register current or prospective client domains within your Partner Portal in order to be eligible for revenue share when you sell HubSpot to that domain.
Domain registration is intended for your current and prospective clients only. Partners should only register domains that they have established a demonstrable business relationship and who you are actively approaching and are engaging with in pursuit of a sale.
Each accepted registration will expire six months (180 days) from the date the prospect was registered. If you are actively pursuing a prospect and the registration has expired, then you may re-register the prospect manually for another ninety (90) days.
Your domain registration capacity is determined by your partnership tier level. Capacity levels are subject to change at HubSpot’s discretion.
Elite: 175 domains
Diamond: 75 domains
Platinum: 25 domains
Gold: 15 domains
Partner: 10 domains
It is important that you maintain the appropriate capacity. You may be suspended or previously registered and accepted domains may no longer be eligible for revenue share if you are above your capacity limits.
Partners can choose to use deal registration as another way to register domains. When a partner creates a shared deal through deal registration, the system automatically attempts to register the domain for that deal to the partner. If the domain is available, it will register the domain to the partner. If the domain is not available, the shared deal will still be created as a co-sold deal (if a HubSpot direct sales rep owns the domain) or as a best partner wins deal (if another partner owns the domain).
Please note that rules around tier credit and commission eligibility do not change with deal registration and are still based on domain ownership. For relevant terms on registration and eligibility requirements please also see “Section 3: Qualified Transactions” in the HSPPA.
It is important to familiarize yourself with all HubSpot Solutions Partner Program Sales Rules (this includes detailed processes for how to pursue domains that are not eligible for registration).
Understand program entry requirements:
Partner Level: to become a HubSpot Solutions Partner, you need to purchase at least one subscription to a HubSpot Professional Product (Sales Hub Professional, Service Hub Professional, Marketing Hub Professional, or the CMS all count). In the event that your subscription with HubSpot is no longer active, you will be removed from the program.
Why? We find that partners who use our software are also the most successful at selling their services tied to it. We want all of our partners to be set up for success, which is why we've made this a program requirement.
