Frequently Asked Questions

Referral Partner Knowledge Center

Where can I learn more about the Empire Flippers Referral Program?

You can read more about it, including how to best use this program, in this article.

What size of business qualifies as a referral?

As of April 1st 2022, our minimum requirement for businesses is $2,000 net profit over 12 month average for all business models.

What type of business can I refer to you?

Anything that qualifies to list on the EF marketplace can be successfully referred to us. This includes Amazon FBA, Amazon KDP, e-commerce, and content sites monetized with displays, affiliate, and Amazon Associates, amongst others. For more about our vetting requirements check out this article.

How do I make a referral?

Referrals can be made using the custom link generator in your Referral Partner Dashboard. You can link to anywhere on our website by adding your referral code at the end of the link. You can also make referrals by sending an email introduction to us.

How and when do I get paid for a referral?

The referral commission funds due you will be moved to your Marketplace Wallet in your Empire Flippers account. When you wish to withdraw these funds, you can login to your dashboard to complete a Withdraw Funds request via ACH bank wire.

What does not qualify as a referral?

A successful referral deal has to close in order for you to receive payment. If a referred deal falls through for any reason, EF will not collect a commission. In that case, no referral payments will be made.

Do I receive a referral commission for earnout payments?

Yes, EF only receives a commission as the Seller receives payments from the Buyer. You will receive a referral commission on the upfront amount. If a deal is structured with an earnout, Seller note, or any other deferred payment, you will receive a referral commission based on that amount. EF does not collect commission on the value of any inventory in e-commerce deals.

How can I tell what’s going on with a deal I referred?

You can see the status of all Sellers you’ve referred in your Referral Partner dashboard. This includes every step of the process. For Buyers, you will see how many have verified proof of funds and how many unlocks they’ve made to review businesses on the marketplace.

  • A qualified referral must not have already submitted their business for sale with EF or unlocked a business on the marketplace.
