Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you pay per referral?

As a DEAR Referral Partner, you will receive $100 for every eligible client you refer to DEAR.

How do I know if DEAR is a good fit for my client?

Thousands of stock-based businesses use DEAR for their inventory management in every major market, but every business is unique, and we’ll help you scope out whether your clients could benefit from DEAR. To be certain that your client will be successful on DEAR (or to avoid starting down the wrong path), our experienced team will conduct a full scoping session with your client to establish suitability of DEAR to their needs.

How does referring to DEAR differ from implementing DEAR?

When you refer a client to DEAR, you offer them advice on how to better manage their inventory, manufacturing and ecommerce, and you introduce DEAR and other apps. Implementation goes much further. When you implement DEAR, you get involved with the client in connecting apps, migrating data, training users, helping clients do change management, and supporting businesses with ongoing improvements and changes. People that implement DEAR receive more income from DEAR because of the extensive work implementing partners do that go far beyond referrals.

Do I get access to the referral’s DEAR account?

Through the partner portal you can access the accounts of any clients that you’ve referred to DEAR. — and a fully functional DEAR demo account.

Do I get access to an account to learn and Demo DEAR to my clients and prospective clients?

Through the partner portal you can access a fully functional DEAR demo account for up to 5 users to use and get familiar with DEAR. It’s easy to test out business scenarios, and use it for demonstrations and training. This is available free of charge to you for up to two years from the data of your latest client referral.
