I’m very excited to announce that MemberPress has acquired ThirstyAffiliates!
ThirstyAffiliates was created by our friend Josh Kohlbach at Rymera Web Company. He wanted to help affiliate marketers make more money by protecting commissions and providing powerful tools and intuitive management of affiliate links.
Josh and his team have maintained ThirstyAffiliates for years. During this time, Josh has also created other products focused on WooCommerce, including Wholesale Suite, Advanced Coupons, and Inventoroo.
As Rymera’s other products progressed, it became clear that their focus moving forward would be WooCommerce. However, this meant that ThirstyAffiliates would no longer fit within their product portfolio. That’s when we started brainstorming on finding a new home for the product.
The more we talked, the more it made sense for MemberPress to acquire ThirstyAffiliates. ThirstyAffiliates and Pretty Links solve similar problems but approach them from alternative angles and serve different markets.
Plus, we were well-positioned to take ThirstyAffiliates over. We have extensive knowledge of affiliate link management in WordPress– considering that Pretty Links is a leading WordPress affiliate link management plugin.
This brings us to today’s announcement. MemberPress has officially acquired the ThirstyAffiliates plugin in an all-cash deal!
What Does Our Acquisition Mean for ThirstyAffiliate Users?
The acquisition of ThirstyAffiliates by MemberPress means that ThirstyAffiliates users will continue to benefit from updates, support, and future enhancements. We plan to maintain ThirstyAffiliates with the same philosophy that Josh and his team had done for years.
More importantly, there will be no requirement to purchase or install Pretty Links to continue using ThirstyAffiliates.
We will continue to support and build ThirstyAffiliates as a separate product from Pretty Links. So, if you’re a ThirstyAffiliates customer, there won’t be any perceptible difference other than a new team providing you with support.
What Does This Mean for Pretty Links Users?
Pretty Links users will hardly notice any changes with the acquisition of ThirstyAffiliates. However, we do have a lot of exciting new features in the works that we’re planning to release in the upcoming weeks.
You can expect to see some associations between the two products that will enhance your experience using both Pretty Links and ThirstyAffiliates.
We appreciate our new ThirstyAffiliate customers, and we’re truly excited to serve you. We look forward to helping you excel in your efforts to manage affiliate links and monetize your content!
CEO of ThirstyAffiliates
