How do Harvest referrals work?

This article is for Administrators. Learn more about permissions. If you’re a Member, check out our Member resources.

Harvest referrals let you invite people to try Harvest via a shareable link, Twitter, or email. If your friend decides to upgrade to a paid plan, both of you receive a $10 credit that’s automatically applied to your Harvest accounts.

Your friends must sign up for Harvest via your unique invitation link to ensure both of you receive credits. Please review our Terms of Service for more information.

Frequently asked questions about Harvest referrals

How can I participate in Harvest referrals?

Harvest referrals are accessible from your Harvest account. When signed in, click your name in the top right corner of Harvest and click Refer a friend.

Additionally, you can refer friends from the Harvest for iPhone or Android apps by tapping Refer a friend. 

Do I need to customize my invitation page with a testimonial?

No, but we highly recommend personalizing your page with a testimonial. Understanding why Harvest is beneficial for your business can help others relate.

To customize this, go to your Refer a friend page and type your testimonial in the Your testimonial section, then click Save testimonial.

How can I tell if my friends signed up for a trial and upgraded to a paid plan?

While we can’t tell you specifically who signed up and upgraded for privacy reasons, you can see how many of your friends took these actions on the Refer a friend page. We’ll also e-mail you when a friend upgrades.

I’m on a free/sponsored plan. How do I redeem my credits?

Any credits earned go towards a paid plan. As soon as you upgrade, Harvest begins to discount the cost of your plan every month from your total remaining credits.

I’ve referred people, but they aren’t showing as referred customers. Why?

The Referred customers total only shows your referrals who are now Harvest customers. People who were referred but did not upgrade to a paid plan after the trial will not show up here.

You can find your personal referral link by clicking your name in the top right corner of Harvest and choosing Refer a friend, then looking in the Referral link section. You can also share your referral on Twitter or by email from the same page.
