The Referral Program is free to sign up for and all you need is a trial account. Visit the Referral Program page to sign up for the program and get more details. You will not be paid affiliate commissions until you sign up for the program.

Ways to Get Referrals

  • a person clicks on your unique affiliate link and signs up for a trial.
  • you send a friend request email and they sign up for a trial using the unique link in the welcome email.
  • you share a link to one of your recipes and a person visits that recipe and then signs up for a trial.

​​Giving a Discount

The 20% discount is automatically applied when your referral signs up for a new trial account on our website, in a browser.

The 20% discount is only applicable on the first annual subscription payment, purchased on our website at

The discount will not work for payments made in-app through Apple. 

Access Your Referral Link

To access your referral link, on the website navigate My Account > Referral Program. You'll find promotional tools, such as your referral link, ways to share, and advertising buttons for your website. 

How to Receive Payments

We pay our affiliates a 20% commission, which works out to about $1 for a $5.95 a month subscription and $9.80 for a $49 a year subscription. 

We send referral payments by the 15th of each month for the previous month of referrals. For example, if 10 of your referrals sign up for a yearly subscription in one month, we will pay you $80 the following month. 

Payments are sent via PayPal to the email associated with your Plan to Eat account. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can create an account when PayPal emails you your first payment.

If your email in Plan to Eat is not confirmed in your PayPal account, you can add an additional email to your PayPal account. After you add that address to your PayPal account, the payment should appear in your PayPal account within a few minutes.

If you do not accept your commission in PayPal within 30 days of it being sent, PayPal will automatically refund the money to Plan to Eat. Once a commission has been refunded, we cannot resend it to you.
