Premier is an exclusive Program Type that gives greater marketing opportunities to the top 30% of Our partners. Partners must meet a set of criteria to be selected as a Premium Partner, as well as pay a premier partner fee, which may be waived in our sole discretion.

Only one partner from any particular service category will be selected as a Premier Partner. Premier Partners get both prominent placements in the Volusion marketplace and receive special co-marketing offerings. Additionally, Premier Partners can expect to receive additional marketing and promotions to Merchants over partners in other Program Types.
