Whatnot Referral Program terms

Brooke Wolfrom Brooke Wolfrom

The Whatnot referral program is designed to give members of the Whatnot community a way to be rewarded to help us to grow the community.


Here are the key details on the program:

  • If you recommend a friend and they purchase for the first time, you'll receive a $10 credit on Whatnot, and they'll receive a $10 credit

  • The credit is earned after their purchase is complete (once verified, or two days after the item is delivered to them)

  • If there is any evidence of you trying to defraud the referral program, your rewards can be removed from your account

  • Referral credits will only apply to the subtotal of the order - they do not cover shipping fees or taxes

Below this you can find the full details and lawyer-speak:

Whatnot Referral Program Terms and Conditions

Last updated: July 12, 2020

The Whatnot Referral Program (“The Program”) allows you to earn promotional coupon credits (“Credits”) toward future Whatnot purchases by referring friends to become new users on Whatnot

To participate, you must agree to these terms, which become part of the Whatnot Terms. Terms that are not defined here will have the same meaning given to them in the Whatnot Terms.


How to Earn Referral Credits

You can earn Credits if: (i) a referred friend clicks on their referral link to create a valid Whatnot account that complies with our Terms of Use; and (ii) the referred friend completes a Qualifying Transaction (as defined below).

The referring person will be credited with the Credit amount(s) specified for each Qualifying Transaction in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials after the completion of the referred friend’s transaction

The maximum Credit that can be earned per person will be $10,000 USD total

Qualifying Transactions

A Qualifying Transaction has no minimum total value. The Qualifying Transaction must be paid for via the Whatnot apps or website, and the referred friend must complete the transaction before a referring friend can receive Credits. A transaction will not be considered a Qualifying Transaction, and therefore no Credits will be earned, if the transaction is cancelled at any time.

Redeeming Credits

Credits may only be redeemed via the Whatnot apps or website. Once earned, Credits will appear as Credit on the referring Member’s checkout page, but you may need to enter a code at checkout to redeem the credit. Credits must be used within one year from the date they are issued, after which they may expire. Credits are coupons issued for promotional purposes; they have no cash value and may not be transferred or exchanged for cash.

Credits may not be earned by creating multiple Whatnot Accounts. Credits accrued in separate Whatnot accounts may not be combined into one Whatnot account.

If for any reason you believe that there is a discrepancy regarding your balance of Credits, please contact us. Whatnot may require you to submit additional information in order to make a determination regarding your balance. All decisions regarding your balance will be final and at Whatnot’s sole discretion.

You are responsible for any Tax consequences, if any, that may result from your redemption or use of Credits. Where applicable, Whatnot may be required to account for VAT on any services for which the Credits are redeemed.

Referrals should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. Referral links should not be published or distributed on coupon websites. Members are prohibited from “spamming” anyone with referral invitations. This includes mass emailing, or messaging people you do not know or using automated systems or bots through any channel to distribute your referral link.

Referred Friends

Referred friends who have signed up using a valid referral link will also receive credit in the form of a coupon or coupons in the amount(s) indicated in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials that can be used on their next Qualifying Transaction on Whatnot. Coupon codes that are not automatically applied must be entered during checkout. Coupon codes may not be transferred to another person, exchanged for cash, or combined with other Whatnot referral programs or incentives.

Coupon codes expire one year from when you sign up for an Whatnot account. Whatnot reserves the right to any remedy, including cancellation of your account or transaction, if fraud, tampering, violations of these terms or Whatnot’s Terms of Use or technical errors are suspected. Void where prohibited. If your transaction later qualifies for a refund, the maximum refund you may receive is the amount you actually paid.

Multiple Referrals

A referred friend may only use one referral link. If a referred friend receives referral links from multiple people, only the person associated with the referral link actually used by the referred friend will receive Credit.


If any provision in these terms are held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision (or the part of it that is making it invalid, void or unenforceable) will be struck and not affect the validity of and enforceability of the remaining provisions.

Termination and Changes

Whatnot may suspend or terminate the Program or a user’s ability to participate in it at any time for any reason.

We reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove Credits if we notice any activity that we believe is abusive, fraudulent, or in violation of the Whatnot’s Terms of Use. We reserve the right to review and investigate all referral activities and to suspend accounts or modify referrals in our sole discretion as deemed fair and appropriate.

The scope, variety, and type of services and products that you may obtain by redeeming Credits can change at any time.

Updates to the Terms

We can update these terms at any time without prior notice. If we modify these terms, we will post the modification on the Whatnot.com website, applications, or services, which are effective upon posting. Continued participation in the Program after any modification shall constitute consent to such modification.
