One question people frequently ask us is about updating a buyer account to an Affiliate or Producer account. When you make a purchase, an account on Hotmart is automatically created for you to access the transaction details.
The buyer account is very limited because it allows to view only the content (ebooks, online courses, among others) purchased by you, while the Affiliate or Producer account allows you to access all the resources in the platform.
If you have already made a purchase on Hotmart and now you wish to take on the role of an Affiliate or Producer, you can update the account you already own as a buyer and enable the specific actions to be a Hotmart Affiliate and/or Producer.
To update your account on Hotmart, follow the step-by-step below:
1. Access your Hotmart account through the link: https://app-vlc.hotmart.com/
2. After you login, click the option Become a Producer:
3. You’ll be redirected to the homepage of the platform and you’ll need to login again. This way, you’ll have access to the Producer/Affiliate profile.
Now, you’ll be able to view the products available for affiliation on the Market menu or register your own product to be sold in Products > New Product.
