If you like Setapp enough to recommend it, our referral program is a chance to spread the word and benefit from that.
The rules are simple: invite friends and get a free month every time an invitee starts a paid subscription. A free month goes to both you and your friend; the number of people to invite is not limited; it doesn't matter which subscription plan your friend chooses.
Limitation. The program is not available for the Family subscription or Setapp for Teams. Learn more...
Now let's go through the steps in detail.
Step 1: Share an invite (referral link) with a friend
Invite a friend via email:
- On the "Earn free months" page of your account, type in the recipient's email in the Email field, then click "Invite a friend."
- An email message with a recommended text about joining Setapp opens. Make sure your friend's email is specified correctly, then send the message.
Share an invitation message on WhatsApp, Facebook, or Twitter:
- On the "Earn free months" page of your account, click the corresponding button on the right from the field with an invitation link.
- A post with a recommended text about joining Setapp opens; you can publish it right away.
Share the invite personally:
On the "Earn free months" page of your account, click "Copy link" on the right from the field with an invitation link.
Your invite link looks like this:
Send the link in the way you prefer (for example, using an instant messaging app).
|🤔||How do I convince a friend to accept the invite? It might be a good idea to add some words of your own. For example, you can mention apps from Setapp that you like the most and use often; or share a short story of how Setapp helped you in a particular case.|
Step 2: Your friend starts a paid subscription
Once the invitee receives the invite, it's enough to click the invitation link and register in Setapp. On the sign-up page, we mention that this registration includes a free month.
Then, the free trial starts; it's high time to discover apps. We think the best way to know Setapp is to search for tools for your everyday tasks — you'll be surprised with how many solutions Setapp can offer.
If your friend likes Setapp, the next steps are adding payment details (this article might help) and activating membership on the Subscription page. As a friendly reminder, a banner on the page tells the free month is ready to be applied.
That's it, congratulations! Your next month in Setapp is free — for you and your friend.
How do we know we've been given a free month?
Once your friend starts a paid subscription, we're emailing you about that. You can also check the "Next payment" line on your Subscription page: if the date is a month later than the next expected payment, the free month has been applied.
Finally, the counter on the "Earn free months" page shows the number of people you've invited and how many of them became Setapp members.
- The Bring-a-Friend program is for individual members who can recommend Setapp to other individuals — and benefit from that. Moreover, neither Family nor Team members don’t actually need free months since they don't pay for Setapp themselves.
- Family and Team plans are for professional, company-based use of Setapp. Among other values, the advantage of these plans is paying less for every group member — which is exactly the benefit that Family and Team owners get. So, the personal referrals are not applicable for owners neither.
