Today, one of my readers sent me a personal message on Whatsapp asking if I assisted in building “Dropshipping-like Spotify affiliate E-commerce websites”, this got me into research mode to find out if Spotify as a platform, offers any form of affiliate marketing or referral system.
Does Spotify Have an Affiliate Marketing Program?
The answer is simply “NO“.
Spotify does not in any way, offer any form of affiliate marketing. But it would have been cool if they did right?
Just like Amazon music and other music stores, it would have been possible to build niche sites around Spotify affiliate program.
Does Spotify Have a Referral Program?
According to Referralcandy, Spotify once offered a referral program in their early days, but why was it discontinued then?
The most straightforward reason would be that they didn’t think it was worth the cost.
When Spotify exploded with users ( 50,000,000 paying users ), they did the maths and decided running a referral program just wasn’t worth it.
Though Spotify sadly, does not have an affiliate or referral program, you can still earn by uploading music you have Rights to.
Another way would be to buy Rights over already produced music tracks and upload to Spotify for passive income.
