What is Paddle? Why do I need Paddle ID in order to be an Elfsight affiliate?
Paddle is a UK-based company that helps Elfsight handle subscriptions and process affiliate commissions. We enjoy our integration with Paddle, because it helps:
- Send your commission immediately right after the referred purchase. Everything is automated, that's why there's no pending period, withdrawal requests or delays.
- Set up an automatic withdrawal to PayPal, Payoneer or your bank account without extra fees.
That's why in order to create an Elfsight affiliate account and receive affiliate commission, you need to create a Paddle account and connect it to your Elfsight affiliate account, inserting your Paddle ID. Let's do this in a few easy steps:
How to create a Paddle account?
Click 'Create a Paddle account' in your Elfsight dashboard:
Submit the Paddle application form:
Website → Your own website, if you don't have any, please insert your affiliate property - your social media or YouTube channel, blog, podcast etc. Don't submit "elfsight.com", such applications will be denied
Company Name → Your company name, or if you don't have any, insert your own name. E.g. "Affiliate Kate Smith"
Country of Headquarters → Choose your country from the dropdown
Company Address → If you're an individual, insert your own address. The same is for a zip code:
Business Type → Individual
Company Registration Number → Don't submit this, it is not required for affiliates.
Check your inbox and log into your Paddle account:
In a few hours after you submit the Paddle application form, you will receive two emails from <[email protected]>. Find your password in the "Your Paddle Account Password" email and log into your account:
Copy your Paddle ID from the Authentication tab:
Insert this Paddle ID to your Elfsight affiliate account to access your affiliate links

How to verify my Paddle account?
After signing up in the Paddle dashboard, Paddle Verification Team can e-mail you to verify your account. Paddle is based in the UK, so they have to conduct KYC (Know Your Customer) checks on the individuals and companies with which they do business.
Affiliates perform only KYC check. You shouldn't submit your domain for check, affiliates are not required to do this. If you receive the requirement of the domain check, just ignore the email, it was sent by a mistake.
To learn more about the verification check and how it will be performed, check this article.
