Earn rewards by telling people about Machete

If you like Machete, you may want to tell other people about it. With the Machete Referral Program, you can do so and get a rebate for every person you refer who later becomes a paying customer.

How does it work?

If you're logged in to Machete, every page you visit at will have a small link in the lower-right corner of the page which goes to a version of the page that has your referral code embedded in it. You can copy this link by right-clicking on it and selecting "Copy link address":

You can share the link you copied with other people, and if they click on your link, we'll record the fact that they came to our site through your referral.

If someone visits through your referral link and becomes a paying customer in the next 90 days, we'll give you a $10 credit on your account. This credit is added to your account when the referred person makes their first payment.

Example: You share a link with Alice on October 1. She signs up on November 10 (less than 90 days after first visiting through your link), and on December 10 her free trial expires. She makes her first payment, and you get a $10 credit on that date.

How are credits paid out?

By default, credits are paid out as a reduction in your monthly subscription fee. Any excess credit is rolled over to the next month.

Example: You have a $25 monthly subscription. In the month of March, you get $30 in referral credits. When your monthly payment of $25 comes due on March 30, you'll pay nothing, and be left with a $5 credit for April. On April 30, you'll pay $20 (assuming you get no more referral credits in the meantime).

You can see your current credit balance at your profile.

If you accrue a credit balance which is significantly greater than your monthly subscription amount, you can send an email to and ask for a cash payout. Cash payouts will be sent through Paypal.

Who is eligible for the program?

Anyone with a paid Machete subscription can participate in the referral program just by sharing a link with their referral code in it. People using the free plan are not eligible to receive referral credits.
