Rewards to help you be your best

Become a partner

Xero partner benefits are designed to give you what you need to be successful, however you define success. The more points you earn, the higher your status level and the more benefits you’ll pick up.

Earn points to reach status levels

As a Xero partner, you’ll immediately gain access to free software, education, and marketing support – not to mention the value you can pass on to your clients. We’ll help you grow to earn even more.

Earn points with every client

You’ll earn points for all client relationships, whether the billing relationship with Xero is owned by you or your client. The subscription type determines the points you receive, and it all contributes to your partner status and rewards.

* To earn and retain practice points for Xero Projects at least one user must be actively using it, for example, adding projects, logging costs or time, or invoicing for projects. If no-one uses Xero Projects for 31 days, the practice points are removed.

Receive even more rewards when you become a Xero champion
