2. Description of Partner Program
By enrolling and participating in the Partner Program, you may discover opportunities to optimize and scale your business through various resources and tools designed to help you meet your business needs.
2.1 Participation in the Partner Program
Agencies, freelancers and other businesses that build websites for clients may participate in the Partner Program upon request and approval by Wix, if they have an active Wix account and enroll to the Partner Program via the Partner dashboard in their Wix account (“Participant(s)”).
2.2 Benefits of the Partner Program
By enrolling and participating in the Partner Program, you may be eligible to access certain benefits designed to help your business scale, as such benefits are offered by Wix at https://support.wix.com/en/article/wix-partners-levels-in-the-partner-program as may be amended from time to time and subject to the terms set forth herein (the “Partner Benefits”).
3. Unlocking benefits by earning points
You may access specified benefits offered by Wix through the Partner Program by earning the requisite points balance needed to reach a Partner Program Level (as set forth below). Each Partner Program Level unlocks specified benefits which are available to you as a Participant so long as you maintain the requisite points balance, subject to these Terms. Any changes to your points balance at any given time may result in a change to your Partner Program Level and therefore the benefits you are eligible to receive.
3.1 What are the Partner Program levels?
The Partner Program includes the following Partner Program Levels that can be unlocked by earning points:
Explorer: 0-300 Points
Pioneer: 400-900 Points
Creator: 1000-1900 Points
Icon: 2000-4900 Points
Legend: 5000+ Points
You may access a Partner Program Level by earning the applicable points balance as set forth above. Each Partner Program Level will determine your eligibility to receive certain benefits, as such benefits are offered by Wix at https://support.wix.com/en/article/wix-partner-program-levels, as may be amended from time to time.
Benefits accessed through the Partner Program will be reflected in the Benefits Tab in the Partner dashboard in your Wix account. The Partner Program, including the method of earning points, the balance of points required for each Partner Program Level, and the any and all benefits included therein, may be updated and/or modified from time to time in Wix’s sole discretion.
3.2 How are points earned?
3.2.1 Each Wix premium website built by you and added to your account will earn you 100 points. For example, a Participant with 50 live Wix premium sites added to its account will have a points balance of 5,000 points.
3.2.2 Each Wix Editor X premium website built by you and added to your account will earn you 300 points. For example, a Participant with 50 live Wix Editor X premium sites added to its account will have a points balance of 15,000 points.
3.2.3 The total number of Wix Premium or Editor X premium sites added to your account will be visible in that Participant’s Partner dashboard.
3.2.4 The premium or Editor X premium site added to your account will earn you points whether originally purchased under a yearly or monthly Wix plan.
3.2.5 The premium or Editor X premium site you build will earn you points whether or not originally purchased with a coupon, voucher or discount.
3.2.6 When more than one Participant or Wix user is designated as a Contributor of any one Wix Premium Site, only a maximum of two (2) of those Contributors may be eligible to have that Wix Premium Site count towards their Premier Partner Benefits eligibility.
3.2.7 Points for premium or Editor X premium sites built through your own Wix account will be credited to your Wix account automatically upon Wix’s receipt of payment for the premium or Editor X premium plan purchased in connection with the relevant site.
Points for premium or Editor X premium sites you contributed to building, outside your own Wix account, will be credited to your Wix account only after you submit a request to be credited those points through the “Submit a Website Built Outside of Your Account” Form, located in the Home Tab of your Partner Dashboard. You will not be able to submit a Form and request points for any Wix premium or Editor X premium site you did not contribute to building. Note that in order to be eligible to receive Revenue Share on a particular site, you must be the first owner of that site, as detailed below.
You will lose points for every Wix premium or Editor X premium site that is not renewed or is otherwise canceled. For example, if one of your premium sites is not renewed or is canceled, your points balance will drop by 100 points, as detailed below.
3.2.8 You may be eligible to earn points through Partner Deals: Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, Participants who purchased activation vouchers for premium plans from Wix pursuant to an approved and executed Bulk Purchase or Subscriptions and Services Order, as applicable (each a “Partner Deal”) through our Partner Team, may receive the points earned for these purchased premium sites, so long as the premium sites purchased as part of a Partner Deal were activated and made live using the activation vouchers. Please note that sites purchased through Partner Deals are not eligible for Revenue Share.
3.2.9 Points have no cash value and are non-transferable, non-assignable and cannot be redeemed for any Wix products or services.
3.3 What happens If my points balance goes down?
3.3.1 At any given time, your points balance may change, impacting your Partner Program Level. Any increase or decrease to your points balance may cause you to drop or rise to a new Partner Program Level, and therefore gain or lose any benefits associated with your prior Partner Program Level.
4. Where can I view my current points balance or Partner Program Level?
You can view your current points balance and Partner Program Level through the Home Tab in the Partner Dashboard in your Wix account or in the Partner Program section of your Wix Account.

6. Revenue Share
Participants may also become eligible to earn revenue share from Wix for revenue generated from the purchase of Wix Premium Sites owned by the Participant while enrolled in the Partner Program, subject to the terms set forth below (the “Revenue Share”). Note that additional terms may apply for Revenue Share for Enterprise Plans, as detailed here.
6.1. Eligibility for Revenue Share
A Participant may become eligible to earn Revenue Share as set forth here (each an “Eligible Participant”).
You may lose your status as an Eligible Participant, and your eligibility to earn or receive Revenue Share, in the event you became eligible for Revenue Share as set forth herein, if a decrease in your points balance causes you to drop to a Partner Program Level that is below the “Legend” Partner Program Level; and/or (b) in the event you became eligible for Revenue Share upon the expiration or termination of your Partner Package Agreement (as applicable).
Wix does not guarantee that Revenue Share will be available in any particular location or language.
6.2. Calculation of Revenue Share
Wix will pay each Eligible Participant a percentage of the Eligible Revenue (as that term is defined below) received by Wix from the original purchase within the Eligibility Period (as that term is defined here) and for some annual renewals , provided that the Eligible Participant is the first owner of that Eligible Site as of the date of its initial creation (hereinafter, the “First Owner”). The Revenue share rate will depend on the type of package sold, as set forth here. Revenue Share shall only be paid for Wix Premium Sites which were purchased for the then-current full price as offered by Wix on the Wix website or eligible 50%-off sales offered by Wix to all users (“Eligible Sales”).
“Eligible Sites” shall not include:
(a) any Wix Premium Sites added to the Eligible Participant’s Partner account that were purchased with a discount code and/or coupon, with the exception of Eligible Sales.

(f) Except for the Revenue Share for Enterprises Plan, any Wix Premium Sites that are added to the Eligible Participant’s Partner account of which the Eligible Participant is not the First Owner. For avoidance of doubt, if the Eligible Participant is not the First Owner of the Wix Premium Site, such Wix Premium Site will not be considered an Eligible Site for purposes of calculating the Eligible Participant’s Revenue Share.
(g) Google Workspace , App upgrades and other such purchases do not qualify for Revenue Share.
(k) for Revenue Share for Enterprises Plans, any Wix Premium Site for which Partner has not fulfilled the site creation and management responsibilities outlined in the contract between Participant and Participant’s client.

In some cases, an Eligible Participant who is also the First Owner of an Eligible Site will continue to earn Revenue Share if such Eligible Site has been transferred to a client or third party or if an Eligible Site they created is upgraded to a Yearly, 2 Year, or 3 Year Premium plan.
Calculation of Revenue Share will occur on the first day of each calendar month for all Eligible Sites purchased by the Eligible Participant during the prior calendar month (the “Calculation Date”). Note that the calculation of revenue share for Enterprise Plans will occur after the entire payment for the purchased plans is received by Wix.
Each Eligible Participant may see its Eligible Sites, and any Revenue Share earned by the Eligible Participant in connection therewith, by viewing the Eligible Participant’s Partner dashboard.
6.3. Payment of Revenue Share
Each Eligible Participant will be paid Revenue Share on Eligible Revenue on a monthly basis within forty-five (45) days from the Calculation Date (each, a “Payment Date”). For the Revenue Share for Enterprise Plans, the Calculation Date shall be as set forth here.
Revenue Share shall be paid on the Payment Date through a third party payment platform. Prior to receiving payment of Revenue Share, an Eligible Participant must connect its preferred payment account with such third party platform through its Partner dashboard.
An Eligible Participant’s Revenue Share for the month must be equal to at least US $200.00 in order to receive payment of Revenue Share on the applicable Payment Date for such month. In the event an Eligible Participant’s Revenue Share for the month is less than US $200.00, that Eligible Participant’s Revenue Share balance for that month shall carry over and be paid out in the next month in which its balance is at least US $200.00. Note that Eligible Partners can customize their threshold to an amount higher than US $200.00, as detailed here.
Each Eligible Participant shall have the right to dispute any Revenue Share payment by providing Wix with data supporting such dispute claim within fifteen (15) days from the Payment Date. In the event a dispute claim is made, the parties shall reasonably cooperate to review and settle such dispute and, if Wix determines such dispute to be valid, in Wix’s sole discretion, Wix shall pay the Eligible Participant in an amount consistent with the parties’ settlement. If such dispute is not made by an Eligible Participant within the applicable 15-day period, the Revenue Share shall be considered accepted and Wix shall have no further liability with respect to that Revenue Share payment.
