You'll create your default Program and determine its most important settings, eg., the commission rules, and payouts. Don't worry, you can change them all once you're done.
- Introduce your brand
First, choose your name and URLs slug. On this page, you can also add your business' logo and choose the app's main color - we strongly disadvise using white as your main color as it may make some texts and buttons invisible.

In GrowthHero your Partners (affiliates) are divided into Programs. Here, you can adjust settings for your Default Program of Partners.
Offer for Partners
- Customer Incentive - a commission that your Partner will get from each referred sale, can be either set as a percentage of the sale's value or as a set value per sale, all commissions will go to your Partner's Balance.
- Friend/Family incentive - a discount that a customer will get for their first sale with the Partner (if they use the Partner's Referral Link or unique Code for the first time).
