What our affiliates say about Descript

"I recommend Descript if you’re a creator of any kind. I’ll just flat-out say it, it’s incredible. It blows my mind."

“Descript eliminates the ‘sucky’ parts of editing a podcast and lets you edit quickly and efficiently.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get paid?

For now, we're only paying out through PayPal, although we'll explore other options in the future. Funds will be dispersed to the PayPal email that you signed up with through your LinkMink portal. If you need to change this PayPal account, log into your Settings to update this.

How often are payouts made?

You will automatically get paid on the 15th of every month. It may take a few days for PayPal to process the payment, so please give it 3-5 business days to see the funds hit your account.

How do I track my referred sign ups?

Once you’ve created your account, you can log in here to track your referrals. In your dashboard, you’ll be able to see exactly the amount of times your link was clicked and where it took place. As long as you’ve used your unique referral URL correctly, the data you see in your dashboard will be accurate.

What if my tracking looks off?

The first thing to do is make sure that your referral URL is copied and pasted exactly as it appears on your account. If this is correct and you still think there are issues, you should make sure to let your audience know that they should use your specific link when signing up. If someone sees your link but searches for/finds Descript on their own instead, or browses to the website from another place, the conversion won’t be tracked against your link and it won’t count as your referral.

Who can join as an affiliate?

The program is currently limited to creators based in the North America. If you're outside of the region, you can still apply now, and we'll approve your status at a future date once we're able to support global affiliates.

Is there a minimum number of sign-ups required to participate?

Once you drive your first referral, your link will be active forever! If your link isn’t generating traffic within the first 6 months, we’ll deactivate the account so that we can make room for other active participants in the program.

How do successful Descript affiliates earn sign-ups?
