Frequently Asked Questions > Referrers

How do I get my favorite dealerships to subscribe to Autoblynk Referral Rewards so I can start earning for successful referrals?

If you would like your favorite dealerships to enroll in the Autoblynk Dealer Network so you can start earning rewards through the Autoblynk Referral Rewards program, please contact your dealer directly and request that they join the network.

To find the phone number for the dealership you’d like to encourage to join Autoblynk, please enter the name and location of the dealership below:

How do I use Autoblynk to earn referral rewards?

To start earning rewards, simply access the Autoblynk Link given to you by your dealership, fill out the referral form, and submit the referral. If that referral leads to a successful referral sale (under our Terms of Use), you will have earned a referral reward and your dealership will contact you about reward dispersal.

How much will my reward for a successful referral sale be?

The amount of the referral reward is determined by your dealership, and during the referral process you will see that amount clearly posted.

How long will it take to get my reward?

The guideline for reward dispersal is no later than within 14 days of delivery, starting from the day your referral takes delivery of the new vehicle.

Please be aware that this is only a guideline, and that most rewards will be dispersed much faster. Our preferred target is dispersal within 4 business days.

How do I find out what’s going on with my referral?

Once you submit a new referral, there isn’t much to do besides wait. The dealership will contact your referral, set an appointment, and do their best to help them find the right vehicle at the right price.

If that process leads to a successful referral sale, you’ll be notified by the dealership and they’ll discuss your preferred payment method and arrange reward dispersal.

Is it important that I specify the team members I want to work with my referral?

In a word… YES! For most dealership team members, referrals represent the bulk of their business. Helping people find the right vehicle is precisely how they earn their livings and take care of their families.

Please refer specifically during the referral process. We know that the hard-working men and women at your dealerships appreciate it and thank you for it 🙂

Does every successful referral earn a reward?

Every successful referral does earn a reward, provided that the dealership you refer:

a) Advertises a specific dollar reward amount

b) Conducts business in the following specific U.S. states (or anywhere within Canada, except for the province of British Columbia.)

Alabama
Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
Colorado
Connecticut
Delaware
Florida
Georgia
Idaho
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kentucky
Maine
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota

Nebraska
Nevada
New Hampshire
New Jersey
New Mexico
New York
North Carolina
North Dakota
Oklahoma
Oregon
Pennsylvania
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota

If your dealership provides an Autoblynk Link to make referrals but does not specify a dollar reward amount or does not conduct business in one of the locations above, then there can be no direct referral reward, by law.

 

Frequently Asked Questions > Dealers

Who is responsible for reward dispersal?

The dealership Autoblynk Administrator (designated by your dealership at signup) is responsible for all reward dispersals. Autoblynk assumes no responsibility for reward dispersal – it is the sole responsibility of the referred dealership.

Please note that as a participating in Autoblynk Referral Rewards dealer you agree to reward dispersal within no more than 14 business days of delivery date, although the preferred guideline is 4 business days.

How much can I earn with Autoblynk?

Autoblynk has been specifically created to potentially provide a sharp and signifcant return on investment, by making it easy to participate with a cost and fee structure that recognizes our role as providers and partners.

To get a feel for what Autoblynk might do for your dealership during the initial 90 days, use this Dealer ROI Estimate Tool link.

The resulting estimate is not a guarantee of performance, but it does represent a reasonable expectation based on some conventional industry-standard metrics.

We’re sure you’ll be surprised at the projections and agree that using Autoblynk could be the very thing you’ve been looking for to take your store to the next level 🙂

How much does an Autoblynk monthly subscription cost?

We offer a single, simple monthly subscription at $499 (USD) per month.

Details about what is included can be found on the Pricing page. Please note that a Successful Referral Sale Fee (SRSF) of $45 (per unit) will be charged per successful referral sale, monthly.

What are Successful Referral Sale Fees (SRSF)?

For every successful referral sale, there is a Successful Referral Sale Fee (SRSF) attached.

Currently, the SRSF is $45 per successful referral sale, billed in aggregate monthly, automatically, to the credit card you have on file.

What other costs or fees are there?

The only other direct costs involved in addition to subscribing to Autoblynk and the Successful Referral Sale Fees (SRSF), are, of course, the actual referral reward amount.

The referral reward amount is determined by you and configured during sign up.

What’s included in my subscription?

Autoblynk provides more than just a referral link. We include all of the promotional materials and guides you’ll need to introduce your customers to the program and help them recognize the power of making referrals consistently.

How do we help customers add our Autoblynk Link to their mobile home screens?

Adding your dealership Autoblynk Link to your customer’s home screen is a simple process. We have made the following graphical guides for the process for Android mobile phones and iPhones.

 

Android Add to Homescreen

 

iPhone Add to Homescreen

Note: Please instruct your customers to use the Safari browser when using Add to Homescreen on an iPhone

Please note that there may be some minor variations of the process or graphical interface based on the browser or browser version installed on your customer’s mobile device.

 

We have multiple franchises. How many subscriptions do we need?

Autoblynk subscription pricing is based on the following basis:

For Dealerships or Teams Per Physical Location or Franchise

 

Definitions

Dealership: The dealership in totality.

Team: A dealership team, specific to a franchise. Also defined as a sales staff.

Physical Location: The location of the dealership.

Franchise: A single brand-name or brand group.

 

Examples

Example A

A Chevrolet/Cadillac dealership in one physical location in one single physical building with one dealership team = one subscription.

Example B

A Chevrolet/Cadillac dealership in one physical location in one single physical building with two dealership teams (separate sales staffs) = two subscriptions.

 

A good rule of thumb is to count minimum subscriptions needed based on individual sales staffs. For example, one dealership in one physical location with three franchises but one sales staff = one subscription.

However, in the same scenario if there were three separate sales staffs = three subscriptions.

However, please note that we recommend a subscription per franchise so that each franchise may have their own Autoblynk Link, which is preferable to a combined franchise link and better positioned for long-term growth.

Do I need to sign a contract?

Nope. The Autoblynk service is provided on a month-to-month basis, and can be upgraded, downgraded, or cancelled at anytime.

Upgrades and downgrades can be made through the Account Console. For cancellations, please contact Customer Care through the Contact Us link in the main navigation.
