Want to get rewarded for sharing your love of doTERRA essential oils with your friends and family? doTERRA just rolled out their new Refer a Friend Program that allows you to earn rewards from your recommendation. In this article I will be telling you all about the program, how it works, how to use your rewards, and answering many of the commonly asked questions.
To participate in the program, all you need to do is share your unique referral link with others. If you're not a doTERRA wholesale customer yet, you can set up a free doTERRA wholesale customer account with ANY purchase here. Your new wholesale customer account will allow you to purchase doTERRA at wholesale (25% below retail), receive a free pebble diffuser if your initial order is 150pv or more, and receive a referral link to share with others to earn free products. There are no minimums or monthly order requirements!
The Refer a Friend Program is a win-win situation for everyone involved. Not only do you get rewarded for sharing your love for doTERRA, but your friends and family get to experience the benefits of these amazing products too. It's a great way to build a community of doTERRA enthusiasts who share a common interest in wellness and natural living.
How the Program Works
The program works by allowing existing doTERRA customers to refer their friends and family to the company. To participate in the program, customers can generate a unique referral link through their doTERRA account and share it with their network. When someone clicks on the link and makes a qualifying purchase, both the referrer and the referred customer will earn rewards. Qualifying purchases include any purchase made through the referral link.
Benefits of the Program
The Refer a Friend Program offers benefits for both existing and new customers. Existing customers can earn free doTERRA products by referring friends and family to the company. New customers can take advantage of the program by receiving a free one-year wholesale membership. If new customers make a purchase of 150pv or more they will receive a free gift - currently that gift is a Pebble Diffuser. Referring friends and family also helps to build a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about natural wellness and essential oils.
When people use your referral link to sign up as Wholesale Customers or Wellness Advocates, you’ll receive 20% of their first order’s total Personal Volume (PV) back in doTERRA dollars within 10 calendars days. You can apply your doTERRA dollars—visible at checkout or in your account profile—toward taxes, shipping, and products.
Referral Link and Sharing
To generate a referral link, log in to your doTERRA account and navigate to the Refer a Friend Program page. From there, you can copy your unique link and share it through email, and social media. Sharing referral links is important because it allows you to earn rewards when someone makes a qualifying purchase through your link. Share a personal story about the benefits of doTERRA products when you share your link with friends and family. Consider reaching out to friends and family who are already interested in natural products or who have expressed interest in doTERRA specifically. You can also share your link in online communities where people may be interested in natural health and wellness products.
Qualifying purchases are defined as any purchase made by a new customer using a referral link from an existing customer.
Rewards and Incentives
Your referrals will enjoy a free first year of doTERRA membership—valued at $35. Their membership benefits include 25% off retail prices and access to Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP) points, auto-shipped products, and free shipping on auto-shipped orders over 100 PV.
Rewards and Incentives Include:
- Free one year membership for your friend
- Friends will receive free shipping with 100pv order
- Your friends can also get a free diffuser with a 150pv order*
- You earn 20% of your friends first purchase in doTERRA dollars
*The freebie is subject to change, so this could change in the future.
Your friend will receive the beautiful Pebble Diffuser pictured below, when they make a purchase of 150ppv or more on their first purchase, using your referral code.
To redeem rewards and use product credits, simply log into your doTERRA account and navigate to the "My Rewards" section. From there, you can view your available rewards and credits and apply them to future purchases.
Terms & Frequently Asked Questions
Which markets can participate in the Refer-a-Friend program?
Wholesale Customers in the US and Canada markets have access to a unique referral link they can share with others. The referral links won’t work outside these regions.
What are doTERRA dollars? When will I receive them?
doTERRA dollars are credits you can use toward doTERRA product purchases, just like cash or store credit. When people use your referral link to sign up as Wholesale Customers or Wellness Advocates, you’ll receive 20% of their first order’s total Personal Volume (PV) back in doTERRA dollars within 10 calendars days. You can apply your doTERRA dollars—visible at checkout or in your account profile—toward taxes, shipping, and products. doTERRA dollars aren’t redeemable for cash or gift cards, transferable, or valid toward prior purchases. They’re also subject to returned product clawbacks. doTERRA dollars earned by Wholesale Customers in markets outside the United States are based on the Commissionable Volume (CV), which may be different from PV based on local currency.
How will I know if my friends or family sign up with doTERRA?
When someone joins doTERRA and purchases products using your unique referral link, you’ll receive an email letting you know who signed up and how many doTERRA dollars you earned.
I don’t want to build a doTERRA business. Does sharing a referral link make me a distributor?
No, you aren’t a distributor. However, you can be rewarded as a customer when you share with others! We know many of our customers love sharing their doTERRA product experiences, so we want to reward you when you share—no business commitments attached.
Are there limits to how many doTERRA dollars I can earn?
Current US tax laws only allow us to reward you up to $599 in doTERRA dollars in a calendar year ($499 in Canada).
Do doTERRA dollars expire?
Yes, doTERRA dollars do expire. You must spend yours within a year of receiving them. If you close (or terminate) your account, you’ll also lose any accumulated doTERRA dollars.
How do I receive credit for referring my friends?
It’s easy! Open your account profile, copy your unique referral link, and share it with others. You can share via text, email, or even social media. When your friends use your link to create a Wholesale Customer or Wellness Advocate account and purchase products, you’ll receive doTERRA dollars from their first order. Keep in mind, because doTERRA dollars are paid out as a percentage of PV, there may be instances where referrals buy a non-PV product, so no doTERRA dollars would be rewarded (for example, a diffuser).
Can I still share my link with friends who have a doTERRA account?
No, preexisting doTERRA members aren’t eligible for this program.
Can I share my link with friends who had a doTERRA account a long time ago?
The Refer-a-Friend program is intended to make sharing your favorite doTERRA products with others simple and rewarding. Your link is uniquely designed to enable you to invite brand-new friends to sign up. If your friends already had doTERRA accounts, they aren’t eligible for this program and should continue to place orders from their original accounts.
What will my referrals see when they follow my link?
They’ll see a special webpage we’ve designed to highlight doTERRA membership perks, popular products, and Loyalty Rewards Program information.
Is there a spending minimum to receive free membership?
No! When you share your link, any purchase through the link qualifies your referrals to receive a one-year doTERRA membership for free. But purchase is required.
What if my friends want to sign up as a Wellness Advocate (or distributor) instead of a Wholesale Customer?
Your friends can still use your referral link to create their own Wholesale Customer accounts. From there, they can upgrade to Wellness Advocate accounts.
What if I want to become a distributor?
We’re thrilled to help you start your doTERRA journey as a distributor (or builder). Reach out to the enroller who helped you sign up for your doTERRA account, and he or she can help you navigate upgrading your account.
Do I need to be on LRP to receive doTERRA dollars?
No! You have lots of flexibility with earning doTERRA dollars. LRP provides terrific benefits, including free monthly products and shipping on qualifying orders, so we encourage you to learn about it and join. However, the Refer-a-Friend program is simply a way for customers to share what they love and be rewarded.
Why are my friends or family not seeing their waived fees?
Make sure your referred customers are clicking directly on your link to shop! They’ll also need to add a product to their cart before the program will apply. This program is valid only with purchase.
The beauty of doTERRA's refer a friend program lies in its simplicity. You can easily share your love of doTERRA's essential oils and other wellness products with others, and the rewards can add up quickly.
