Their Shopify integration allows merchants to seamlessly integrate with impact.com in just minutes to launch and automate their affiliate and influencer partnerships programs without developer involvement. By integrating with impact, merchants can discover and recruit new affiliate and influencer partners, automate contracts and payments based on the terms they set, and track performance all in one place.

Today’s episode is made possible by our friends at LittleData, the Google Analytics app for Shopify stores, to fix your tracking and benchmark performance.
This is Cristy Ebert Garcia’s story…
She’s been in the industry for twelve years and has seen the myths and misconceptions about partnerships. Many businesses assume they’re very time intensive, crazy expensive, and require a whole team to manage, which isn’t true. The Shopify integration of impact.com makes it accessible to everyone. The platform connects Shopify brands with potential partners, helps with recruitment, contracting, payment details, and measures the partnership’s success in one place. The partnership channel is a thriving economy where brands see just under 30% of their total revenue. The goal of Cristy and the impact.com team is to help Shopify brands transform their businesses into a sustainable and significant revenue stream.
In this episode, you will learn:
- How the impact.com platform provides a marketplace where businesses of all sizes can connect with potential partners, affiliates, and influencers.
- The Partnership Channel is a thriving economy worth billions of dollars, growing in importance as traditional marketing channels become less effective.
- impact.com offers a Shopify app that allows businesses to start with the platform and grow their revenue through partnerships.
