Seller Referral Program

Whatnot Support Whatnot Support

The Whatnot seller referral program is designed to give members of the Whatnot community a way to be rewarded to help us to grow the community. Seller referrals will help bring more buyers into the platform.

Key details of the program:

  1. If you’re eligible for the referral program, you should see a link on the top right of the page on, or at the top of the profile page on mobile.
  2. Recommend a new seller by either filling out the seller referral form yourself or sharing your seller referral link for them to apply. Please keep in mind that the seller referral link and the buyer referral link ($10) are different. The use of the Buyer Referral Credit Link will not count toward the eligibility for the seller referral bonus when the new user  applies to become a seller.
    • If the Seller Referral Form or Link are not used properly, the referral will be ineligible for the Referral Bonus.
    •  Only the user that refers another user to become a seller will receive the Referral Bonus. The user that is referred to become a new seller, does not receive the referral bonus.
  3. Once the referred seller goes live and makes their first sale, you will be eligible for a $200 payment.
  4. Once the sale is verified, our team will contact you via email about the $200 bonus payment details. It may take around a month to be verified and processed.

Who can I refer?

The referred seller has to be a “new” seller that has never applied to sell on Whatnot. They may already have an account with Whatnot as a buyer, however, they will not be considered if they applied to sell prior to the referral. Applications will be reviewed on a weekly basis.

You can not refer yourself as a new seller, as the referral will be deemed ineligible.

How to Earn Referral Bonus

Once the Qualifying Sale (as defined below) is verified, our team will reach out about referral payment details. We will add the bonus to your Whatnot account balance. You will need a payout method added to your Whatnot account to cash out this bonus as it can not be used toward future purchases. If the seller you are referring had already applied before the referral, your referral will not be considered for the bonus. We will not revoke their current application.

Qualifying Sale

A Qualifying Sale has to be on a live show and have a value above $0. It cannot be a giveaway. The sale must be properly shipped and marked complete.

Multiple Referrals

If the same new seller is referred by multiple users, only the first referral will be considered for the referral bonus.

What do I do if I was eligible for another referral campaign? 

We have run other seller referral promotions in the past with different values. If you are eligible for past referral promotions, you are eligible for either that or this bonus program - whichever has higher bonus value or easier qualification conditions.

Important Things to Know:

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

If you have not received your referral bonus or you have any additional questions or concerns, please email with your username, and the username of the seller you referred
