Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I'm interested. Please help me understand the finer details.
What is the earning potential?
Generous Commission Payouts – For every referral you send our way that becomes a SUMO customer, you will receive up to 25% of the ACV (annual contract value). For example:

  • Refer a mid-market company with multiple locations that needs 30 SUMO Silver licenses.
  • If you are on the BOOST 36 tier, you will receive a total of up to $6,750 in commission.  This is calculated by taking the $75/user/mo X 30 users X 12 months = $27,000 X 25% (your commission) = $6,750.
How will I be enabled to succeed as a SUMO Affiliate?
All approved SUMO Affiliates will undergo training that will include product training and sales & marketing training.  You will also be provided marketing materials, to make it easy for you to promote SUMO and start earning recurring commission.

Is there a conflict of interest if I am a Affiliate of a SUMO competitor?
We don’t believe so.  While we prefer loyal resellers who do not promote our competitors solutions, we also understand there is value in choice for the customer.  Therefore, it is your choice to promote SUMO alongside one of our competitors if you feel this is a strategy that best suits your approach.
