Hi X-

You're receiving this email because sometime within the last few years you signed up to be a 37signals Affiliate.

Unfortunately, we've decided to end the 37signals affiliate program. While the program has been successful, we'd like to focus our customer acquisition efforts elsewhere.

Even though we're closing down the program, we want to ensure that we do right by you and everyone else who've helped us through this program over the years.

Here's what you need to know:

Portal shutdown: The affiliate portal at https://affiliate.37signals.com will be shut down later today.

Final payments: Our records show that you haven't earned any commissions this year, and have an outstanding commission balance of $Y.00.

Because this is less than our payment threshold of $100, no final cash payment will be made. However, we'd like to offer you a $Y.00 credit on the 37signals account of your choosing.

Please reply to support@37signals.com with the account that you'd like the credit applied to.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to respond to this email.

Again, thanks for being part of the 37signals affiliate program. Have a happy holiday season.

Thanks, 37signals

Can someone explain what the Affiliate Program is/was? 37 Signals has been doing a lot of pruning and shuffling lately. I wonder why.


I was in the program, but wasn't active. Does anyone know what 37signals did for affiliates that were still generating significant revenue? Just offered a credit buyout?
