Where can I find my referral links?

Retrieving a Class Referral Link

As soon as your class is published, there are several different ways you can retrieve your class’s referral link:

Left Toolbar

From the student or public view of your class, click the gear button in the bottom left corner to open up the admin toolbar. The class’s referral link will be listed at the top, under Class Referral Link.


Share Button

From the student or public view of your class, click the Share button under the video lesson queue. Then, click the link button to reveal the class’s referral link.


Within the Class Creator Tool

After you’ve published a class, you can go back into the Class Creator tool to edit the content or access specific promotional tools. You’ll find your class’s referral link in the Promote section in the left-hand side menu.


Retrieving Your Channel Referral Link

Your channel referral link is hosted on Your Referrals dashboard. To get there, follow these steps:

  1. On a desktop computer, click your profile icon in the top right corner.
  2. Select Refer a Friend.
  3. On the next screen, copy the link in the Share Your Link box.

Alternatively, you can also access your Referral dashboard by clicking on the Refer Student, Earn $10 button on Your Teacher Stats dashboard.

Class and channel referral links are unique to you. Further to that, they look a little different than the regular URL for your class. Be sure you’re using the right one when marketing your class so you can earn the referral bonus! Here are two examples:

Class referral link: https://skl.sh/2FZHZ1O

Channel referral link: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/teachonskillshare

In terms of earning the referral bonus, it doesn’t matter what link you use — the payout is still the same regardless of whether you use a class or your channel referral link.

Heads up! Effective April 1st, 2022, teacher referral bonuses are changing. Rather than earning a flat $10 bonus on each referral, teachers will earn a bonus equal to 60% of that student’s first subscription payment. For more information on why we’re making this change, review our announcement Important Updates to Skillshare Teacher Payments (January 2022).
