Align payouts to value
No matter what your conversion funnel looks like, you can choose exactly where you want to trigger an automatic payout.
Use our Salesforce and Hubspot integrations to pay your partner based on their lead’s progress through your pipeline.
Or if your sales process is more self-serve, you can instead pay at key stages like subscription upgrade or renewal.
