Dashboard

The partner dashboard is the first link in dropdown menu and takes you to the 'home' page for the partner portal.

  • A visual graph of data displaying the number of Method accounts you have referred as a Partner within the specified date-range. (Empty in the above image.)

  • A link to a video giving a guided tour for the partner portal.

  • A link to the help center. A very important place. You're probably reading it right now.

To return to your normal customer portal, click the Home link, where you can update your contact details and pay transactions.

Note: Your contact details are important and used in many parts of our Partner program including your listing on our sales site and any dynamic (Partner branded) marketing material. Ensuring these details are current is important.

Most commonly used details include (name, company name, phone, email, company logo, and profile image). These details can be updated by editing your profile.


Referred Accounts

When a client successfully uses your referral link to sign up for a trial with Method, they'll appear in this list. Clicking a particular row will display the invoice history for that account (up to 2 years in the past).


Leads / Prospects

Your Referral Link is used by your clients to sign up for a free trial of Method. If the customer converts their trial into a paid subscription, it will count towards your commissions. 

Note: Copy your referral link and share it via email, your website, or social media to get more leads.

It is important to protect your efforts by registering your prospects and potential Method referrals.
