SaaS partnerships : How do you define the % share with partners?

Is there a metric to define the % revenue share for partners?


Is there another effective pricing model to structure with partners in terms of commissions as they refer and their partners close more?


Please let me know in comments


This thread could help resolve multiple partnership level discussion scenarios, too!

In my short experience typically A.Es get 10% of the A.R.R and itโ€™s residual for as long as the client stays on. As for partners not sure

I have seen 80-20, 70-30 and 60-40 happening in SaaS partnerships favoring the leadgen partner. Ofcourse it depends more on the product and the ticket size but that's the norm I've seen

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
Do you have any sales compensation or data scientist folks in your organization? This is something where running old school economic models can actually be really helpful.

Pricing stability is also a question here. The answer changes if every deal if $50k versus deal size ranging from $50k-$500k.

First place I worked for was 30% of ARR to the partner as long as the customer stayed a customer. I've also seen 10-20% of year 1.
