Hive is a network that reinvests commissions you would normally pay marketing affiliates back into groups of customers as store credit.


Back to top

Become a part of the newest medium for interacting with customers and other businesses. On Hive, customers join with up to 5 friends to form a "hive". Every time a user buys something from your store, they are rewarded with store credit. We make this happen by taking the commissions you would normally pay your marketing affiliates, or the money you would spend on a reward program and reinvesting it back into the customer as store credit on your behalf.  The amount of store credit the user earns is determined by the total shopping activity of the user's hive at your store. In addition to giving the customer incentive to buy from you, your brand is also advertised to anyone who the user is connected to through Hive. All of this service is included in the percentage of the sale you are paying out. Users can spend the credit through our plugin or instantly trade it for other types of credit they may want on our first of its kind credit exchange.

Rather than customers having to sign up for and manage a bunch of different programs, once a user signs up for Hive, they are automatically a part of a system allowing them to earn credit from any store on the network with everything managed under one account. Hive uses one universal program structure with store credit as the sole payout, however credit thresholds and payout amounts are completely controlled by the individual businesses.  Users can manage and trade their credit from our website or mobile app.  Our plugin tracks their activity and readily gives them access to their credit from your website, allowing for frictionless transactions, and secured sales. Users can manage and trade their credit from our website or mobile app. In addition to installing the Magento Extension, Merchants must sign up for a Hive Merchant Account. Hive charges a 1.5% commission on purchases made by Hive users in addition to any store credit payed out to the user.
