Looking to get credit for those you refer to Shift? If you regularly recommend Shift to friends, family, or clients, we have 2 great options available for you! Our Referral Program (see more below) allows you to earn rewards for 1, 5, and 10 Referrals. If you're planning to refer more than 10 people, our Partner Program allows you to earn revenue for your referrals and sales. Head here for more information about our Partner Program.


Referral Program brackets 🌟

  • With 1 referral you can remove the Sent with Shift signature from your free account (for 1 year)
  • With 5 referrals you'll get one year of Shift Advanced FREE
  • The next 5 referrals (10 total) will earn you a subsequent year of Shift Advanced for 50% off

Once your referrals have successfully signed up for a Free Shift account (no need for them to purchase a subscription), you'll get an email from Shift containing a link to activate your benefit. Click the link from the email, follow the prompts, and you'll be all set! 🚀


How to share your Referral link 📨

  1. Click on Options (lower left corner) > Settings > click on the Referral Bonus tab
  2. Share the pre-composed referral email across your network by choosing the email address you would like to send the referral from
  3. Select your friend's emails from your contacts list or manually type in an email address


How to sign up using a Referral link

If you've been invited to Shift through a friend's Referral link, follow the steps below carefully to ensure your friend gets the credit:

Check your promotions, updates, or even spam/junk folders in case your friend's referral email landed there! You can search for the email title, "Here's something I wanted to share..."


  1. Locate and open the Referral email
  2. Click the Referral link in the email
  3. Click the blue "Download Now" button
  4. Enter the email address you want to use for your account
  5. Your download will start immediately, once finished, open Shift and create an account using the same email address from step 4

Note: referral bonuses cannot be combined with any other coupon or promotional offer. Referral bonuses cannot be used for Shift for Teams licenses. Referral bonuses are valid for 1 year upon redemption. Bonuses are open to any individual user of Shift and can be earned and redeemed at any time, no matter how long you've used Shift. If you earn a Referral benefit  after purchasing, the Referral benefit can be applied to your next year. No partial refund can be provided if you have already purchased. Users must be 18 years of age or older.
