How Does It Work?
- Sign up for your affiliate account and get approved – Already a customer? Great, you can use the same login info for simplicity! (Sign in as a customer first, then while signed in continue to apply as an affiliate)
- You will be given access to your affiliate program portal where you will have a range of banners and textual links that you place within your site, social media profiles, guest blog posts on other websites, email signature, etc – use your imagination here.
- When a user clicks on one of your links, they will be brought to our website and their activity will be tracked by our browser cookie through the affiliate software.
- You will earn a commission for each sale generated from your referred traffic. All camera sales are excluded. (Your own purchases don’t count as affiliate referrals and therefore don’t earn commissions)
- A commission payment will be made to you every month via Paypal for the month before last (to allow time for order validation & customer returns). To get paid, you MUST have a valid Paypal account (due to payments automation) or you simply won’t get paid.
- You will have real-time statistics and reporting in your affiliate portal, 24 hours a day to check your sales, traffic, account balance, payouts, etc.
- Pre-made image banners and links – We encourage you to create your own to better fit with your unique style, methods and strategy.
- Video tutorials to help you succeed
- Access to dedicated affiliate support via toll free phone and email – we want you to succeed so we can succeed along with you!
|Commission Type:||Pay-Per-Sale commission for each sale earned from your referred traffic, via link, coupon code or manual entry through checkout.
*Commission calculation excludes order sales tax, shipping and shipping insurance fees.
|Commission Tiers:||Commission increase is based on amount of affiliate’s commission earnings total, good toward new commissions earned after increase:
Example: Over a period of time you have accumulated a total of $97 in commissions, the next commission you earned put you over the $100 threshold for 6%, bam, all future commissions from this point on are now earning 6%, until you get to the next threshold, and so forth.
$0 – 5%
Reached 20% and want more? – Higher commissions totally negotiable and will mainly be based on ongoing referral performance.
A very few number products/services earn flat commission or no commission, regardless of tier level (due to very low profit margins). Such items will be listed and kept updated in your affiliate portal. Feel free to avoid promoting these items so that you may maximize your return.
*Commissions earned on old affiliate platform do not count toward this new system – every affiliate has to sign up again, starting fresh on the new system.
|Tracking Cookie Life:||7 Days – Unless user clears their cookies before yours is set to expire, then the cookie life would be shorter (based on when it’s cleared).|
|Alternate Referral Tracking Methods:||Aside from standard affiliate links this program allows for tracking referrals via custom coupon codes and manual affiliate selection on checkout page.
Coupon Codes – Are a great way to make your affiliate program work off-line, like workshops, classes, seminars, events, etc. The coupon code is given out to your participants and they now have an incentive to use the code to make their purchase on our website, simultaneously providing a way for our system to accurately track the sale and your commission.
Due to the nature of coupons and how coupon aggregating websites work all of our coupons, including affiliate coupons will have set expiration times, 30 days in most cases.
Manual Affiliate Selection – When a customer is on the checkout page about to make a purchase and hasn’t already been tracked as an affiliate referral via an affiliate link then they will be shown a new optional field. This field will ask if he/she was referred to us by someone on the drop-down list (contains all active affiliates by name). The customer, at their option, can then choose an affiliate from the list by whom he/she was referred. The chosen affiliate will then receive credit for this customer’s purchase.
This feature allows you to still earn a commission even if the customer failed to use any other method – save more sales than ever before with this foolproof option of last resort!
|Paypal Payouts:||Payments are made once per month, for the month before last. Example: Payout in December would be for the month of October (to allow time for order validation & customer returns).
There are no minimums for a payout to be made – as long as your balance is greater than $0, you will get a payout!Note: Because of this automation and no minimums all payouts are handled via Paypal only. Valid Paypal account is required in order to participate in this program.
