Refer a Brand to Ohi and Get Paid $2K!

As an Ohi client or friend of Ohi*, you’ve seen how Ohi instant delivery delights customers, improves the DTC post-purchase experience, and boosts e-commerce performance.

Here’s your chance to spread that joy to other brands that sell DTC online and get paid for it!

How it works:

  1. Make initial intros via the form below. (NOTE: The brand you’re referring must already be selling DTC online.)
  2. Ohi takes it from there. If the referred brand looks like a match with our platform, we’ll set up meetings with the referred employee(s) to show them our platform and demonstrate the value. We’ll even waive the first month’s platform fee as an added signing incentive for the brand!
  3. You’ll be paid $2,000 for each referred brand that becomes an Ohi client!

Start referring ASAP; all referrals must be in by 11:59pm PST on December 31, 2022!

Eligibility & Other Info:

  • *You must either be (1) an existing Ohi client (i.e. an employee of an existing brand on Ohi’s platform), or (2) a “friend of Ohi” invited to participate in this program by an Ohi employee, in order to qualify for a bonus payout under this program.
  • Referrals must be made by 11:59pm PST on Dec 31, 2022 for referrer to qualify for a bonus payout upon successful net new client signing.
  • Eligible net new client referrals must sign a contract with Ohi for at least a one-year term.
  • Based on a referred brand’s compatibility with the Ohi platform, Ohi reserves the right to pursue or decline to pursue an opportunity with each referred brand.

Holiday Shipping Deadlines 2022: December Cutoff Dates (Last Day to Ship) for USPS, FedEx, UPS, & Ohi

Note: This is a live resource, and the table below will be updated as new information is released.

While the holiday shopping season is unequivocally exciting for many merchants because of the outsized revenue they realize in a short period of time, the spike in orders can strain both merchants and their logistics partners. Therefore, it’s imperative that brands plan their holiday fulfillment and shipping strategy ahead of the holidays to avoid costly supply chain disruptions and shipping delays. 

To help e-commerce merchants map out their holiday shipping strategy ahead of the peak season, we’ve put together a live guide highlighting the “last day to ship” for major fulfillment/delivery providers for delivery before December 25, 2022.
