Elementor’s Affiliate Marketing program offers affiliates financial incentives to promote the leading WordPress website builder software.
The affiliate program is a good fit for those wishing to make extra income from a blog, website or social media channel, simply by referring people to the Elementor website. If the person makes a purchase, then the referrer makes a commission.
Elementor is a replacement to the standard WordPress Gutenberg page editor and powers well over a million blogs and websites. Utilising a “drag and drop” build style, it provides enhanced usability along the lines of Wix while retaining all the power of WordPress.
The Pro version also lets users edit the actual theme, not just the content.
We’ll talk more about the software later, but let’s first run through the affiliate offering.
Is the Elementor Affiliate Program an ideal fit for you to promote?
If any segment of your target audience is running their own website or blog then the answer is probably “Yes”.
Send them to Elementor and earn money for the referral.
By the way, the Affiliate Program is available globally, not just to Australians, and financial numbers are in US Dollars.
How Much Does Elementor Pay For A Referral?
Elementor will pay you a commission of 50% for every single referral that converts to a paying customer. The amount paid depends on which plan the referred person takes out.

The Elementor Cookie
When you sign up for the Elementor Affiliate Program, you receive a unique tracking link. The link contains a unique Affiliate ID, so the merchant knows you sent traffic arriving on their website.
You use the tracking link on your website or social media to direct visitors to the merchant’s website.
The merchant (Elementor) stores your affiliate ID in a tiny text file (known as a cookie) in the visitor’s web browser. Cookies are used to track website visitors.
Every cookie has an expiry date; likewise, Elementor puts a 30 Day Expiry on their cookie.
What this means in simple terms, is that if the person you referred purchases a hosting plan within 30 days then you get credited with the sale. The credit happens even if they didn’t click your link during future visits.
The period is known as the “Cookie Life” and 30 days is fairly average.
How and When Do You Get Paid?
Elementor pays commissions using Paypal, and you receive payments on a monthly basis assuming you have met the $200 payout threshold. If your commissions are less than $200, they are rolled over into the following month.
Who are Elementor? What would I be promoting?
Launched in 2016, Elementor’s growth has been little short of phenomenal. The platform has now reached more than 180 countries with over 2 million active installs. There are over 3,000 five-star reviews.
Your role as an “affiliate” of Elementor is to refer people to their website. If any of those people make a purchase then you get a commission.
