This program is free for anyone to register for and as of 8/1/2018 pays out a commission rate of 10% for digital goods and 5% of physical goods of the final sale price of any product sold through the affiliate link. All affiliates are provided with direct access to the affiliate area where they can create tracking links and access their affiliate link & stats. All commissions are calculated based on the final sale value after all discounts have been applied.
Commissions are held 30 days to avoid issues with cancellations and chargebacks. Once the 30 day grace period has passed, all outstanding commissions will be paid directly to the Paypal account registered in the Affiliate’s Profile on the 1st week of each month. Cancellations & returns will have the commission retracted from the affiliate account. All affiliates are responsible for tracking their own payments and reporting them for tax purposes accordingly.
Per federal law you must disclose the use of affiliate links in text on forums, blog posts, websites etc. Not using a disclaimer can lead to your account status being suspended or closed. A good generic disclaimer to add to your post or page is:
“Some of the links in the post above are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, we will receive an affiliate commission. Regardless, we only recommend products or services we believe will add value to our readers.”
Also, no matter where you live almost all social media platforms also have strict rules about disclosing affiliate links. You must tell people the link is an affiliate link, the best way to do so is to use the hashtag #affilatelink right before or after the link.
We reserve the rights to change these terms of service at any time as long as we provide notice to the email on file first. We also reserve the right to end an affiliate relationship at our discretion at any time.
