Do I need to sign up somewhere to make a referral?

You don’t need to sign up anywhere to start referring. Just create your unique sharing link using your email address and you’ll be notified as soon as a referral makes their first payment.

When and how do I receive my $300 reward?

The $300 referral bonus is awarded as soon as your referral makes their first payment. Once they do, you will receive an email from PartnerStack, the platform facilitating reward payments, that you can claim your commission and more instructions on how to do so.

Who would benefit from using Katana?

Katana is a manufacturing ERP that gives modern manufacturing companies the live overview they need to make decisions. Companies that would benefit most from Katana include small to medium-sized manufacturers who are struggling to manage operations with:

  • Systems of spreadsheets — Manually updating spreadsheets is not only time-consuming but an error-prone method of inventory and production management
  • Expensive and complex legacy software — Old-school ERP software is not only difficult to use, but comes with a high price tag and an avalanche of features that most manufacturers do not need or use
  • ERP or MRP tools that lack integrations — Katana is built to integrate with top-tier accounting (Xero, QuickBooks), e-commerce (Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce), CRM, reporting, automation, and shipping software to streamline operations
Can my referrals change or cancel their subscription at any time?

If you are on a monthly billing plan, you can upgrade, downgrade, or change the number of users and operators at any time. Once you do, your billing details are recalculated automatically. If you are downgrading, you will be partially credited for your subscription fee and unused Advanced plan add-ons. Monthly subscriptions can be canceled anytime under the Subscription section in your Katana account settings.

If you are on an annual billing plan, you can add users and operators anytime and be billed on a prorated basis. Removing users from annual billing plans will add credit to your Katana account for your next billing period. If you want to downgrade from Advanced to Essential, you can use your paid annual fee as a prepayment for your next billing period. If you cancel your annual plan subscription, there is no refund. However, your account will remain active until your subscription expires.

If you connected to Katana from the Shopify App Store, your billing is handled by Shopify. To cancel, simply uninstall the Katana app from your Shopify account.

Do my referrals need to enter credit card details to sign up?

No, we do not require your credit card details when you sign up. Once your free trial ends and you decide to continue using Katana, you will be asked to select a paid plan and enter your billing information.

Are you an agency, manufacturing expert, or accounting pro?

Katana's Partner Program may be a better way to benefit from referring people in your network.
