How do I apply to be an affiliate?
Go to upstart.com/affiliates and fill out the form there and we will get back to you with next steps!*
Do I get a special rate for signing up through FinCon?
Yes! We are offering approved affiliates a one-time $1000 bonus if they generate 10 funded loans in 6 months. This promotion is exclusive to affiliates who signed up through FinCon.
How many borrowers can I refer a month?
As many as you can! We don’t limit your referrals or cap your payouts.
How much do I get paid?
We don’t limit your payouts, so your earning potential is limitless! We pay a base rate of 1% per funded loan (up to $500!) and offer bonuses and promotions on top of that.
How do I get paid?
Upstart works with Impact Radius to pay our affiliates commission. Once approved by Upstart Compliance, you will be directed to register in Impact Radius to set up your account. You will receive a monthly payout based on loans generated the previous month.
How are my earnings calculated?
We pay you based on the number of funded loans you generate. This means that if one of your followers visits www.upstart.com and funds a loan, we will pay you 1% of that borrower’s total loan. For example, if one of your followers funds a $25,000 loan, you will earn $250. We also pay volume bonuses, so the more loans you generate, the more you make.
What kinds of content can I promote related to Upstart?
Whatever you can come up with! We encourage our affiliates to use whatever channel they prefer to share Upstart with their followers.
What factors does Upstart consider when evaluating borrowers?
Our underwriting uses artificial intelligence to take into account many other factors like your education and experience to determine creditworthiness.
