Let's get your questions answered
You can pick if you want the traffic to go to your homepage or to the product page.
We use affiliate-style links to direct traffic from one store to another. The affiliate link will automatically apply the discount code to your store and keep track of the clicks/sales for your individual partnerships.
Boost doesn’t mess with anything that is top of funnel for your sales processes. We never intend to introduce upsells of other brands products before an order is already in hand.
We do not throttle your traffic. In general, the commission you send back to your partner helps ensure all parties are happy.
You have three types of discounts you can offer the customer. Each type you have the option to set a prerequisite amount of spend in order to unlock the discount.
- Free Shipping: Free shipping on all orders
- Percentage Discount: 10% off all orders
- Money Discount: $10 off all orders
At this time yes. This is how Boost knows the order came from our platform. We routinely see that strong discounts encourage a better click-thru rate.
If you’re worried about the discount cutting into your margins too much, we recommend running a discount with a minimum amount of spend to unlock. Set the minimum amount above the price of your most popular product and encourage customers to increase their average order value.
It depends on the collaboration type you are running:
- Offers: We create a new discount code every time the widget is displayed. It’s a one-time-use discount code. All of the discount codes nest nicely under a couple of spots in your Shopify admin so we don’t clutter it down.
- Box Inserts: You get a unique discount code for every box insert collaboration with a partner you run. This discount code can be used once per customer, but unlimited customers can redeem it. Quite simply, you don’t want to be printing out a different-looking QR code for all your inserts.
- Emails/Social: Similar to box inserts, but we give you a link to use instead of a QR code.
You get to pick. When you create the offer you get to pick is this for all products in your store or a single product. We want people to be able to create compelling stories on the order thank you page.
You sell a bunch of snacks and want to pair only your vegan cookie line with a vegan milk company because you think it tells the perfect story, we give you the power to do just that.
We have a world-class algorithm that helps us determine the offer to show. This means that once you have your offers and stories in place, we’ll take care of the rest for you. We only show one offer at a time to ensure the customer is never overwhelmed.
No, it’s up to each partnership how you would like to work together. You can partner with other brands on Boost in ways that do not involve putting a widget on your order thank you page.
When you sign up, we ask you to join groups that target a similar audience. You get visibility to all of the brands in the groups you join.
We also make it really easy to invite other stores to our community. We know how important it is to find the right match.
We don’t want a brand to come in and start pitching every single company on the platform. This creates a gross situation for everyone involved.
If you would like to join more groups, drop us a line (Settings -> Support) and we’ll review your account and see what we can do.
Keep in mind, you get unlimited private collaborations you can join. We only limit the public-facing collaborations you can join.
We allow you to send 4 partnership requests per month. We do this to prevent spam. We want every partnership request you receive on Boost to be meaningful.
Furthermore, we also allow brands to set revenue thresholds their potential partner must reach in order to send them partnership requests.
If you need more partnership requests, please reach out to us through support and we will look at your activity.
You vet 100% of the partnerships for your brand. Even for brands you have worked with in the past, you approve 100% of the upcoming partnerships with them. You’re always in control on Boost.
Yes. You set the countries you operate in and we only send you referrals for customers in those countries.
We only offer English and USD at this time. The founder of Boost loves to travel and speaks multiple languages, so we definitely understand the importance of this. Drop us a note in the chat in the bottom right corner, we would love to hear what language you want next.
Sorry, at this time we are limited to Shopify brands only.
We heavily leverage the Shopify API to ensure the commissions process seamlessly. We also do things like pull your products into Boost so you can say I want a box insert that directs the customer right to our most popular product.
