GFI Partner membership levels and benefits

GFI offers graduated partner levels that reward our partners as they grow with us.

Levels

Our partners’ benefits increase as they reach a new tier of membership – first bronze*, then silver and, ultimately, GFI Gold Partner status.

Gold PartnerOur highest achievement, the Gold Partner level, is for partners that have superior sales and technical expertise in selling and supporting the GFI product range. The GFI Gold Partner earns the most extensive range of benefits and discounts, and an exclusive direct relationship with GFI.



Silver PartnerThe Silver Partner level is for partners that have already made a significant commitment to developing their GFI business and have a proven track record in selling and supporting GFI products. The GFI Silver Partner receives a higher level of benefits and discounts.



Bronze PartnerThe Bronze Partner level gives our remaining partners the opportunity to gain access to online sales, marketing, training and education tools so they can develop their GFI knowledge and business. The GFI Bronze Partner is taking the first steps toward building its GFI business and has access to immediate discounts and benefits.

*Partners in the U.S. and Canada join as a Registered Partner and achieve Bronze Partner level with three (3) new business deals
