|What is an affiliate program?
An Affiliate Program allows you to place links to our products on your web site. By placing these links, visitors to your site have the opportunity to buy products. If a product is purchased through a link on your web site, we pay you a commission for each sale.
Why should I join?
There are many reasons to become an affiliate. Becoming an affiliate is free, and you’ll make money with very little effort. As an affiliate, you add valuable content to your site while partnering with a recognized industry leader.
I operate more than one website. Can I still be an affiliate?
Yes. You can have multiple sites within one affiliate account that allows you to track the progress of each site separately.
Is my website eligible to participate?
Most sites qualify to participate in the program but we do reserve the right to refuse membership at our discretion.
What are your responsibilities as an affiliate?
The only responsibility is using the tag generator, creative and the links. We take care of everything else.
What is our responsibility?
We provide you with the tools and support you need to maximize sales through your site. We also handle orders,
shipping and billing for all customers you refer to us.
How do I create links?
The Global Affiliate Interface will provide you with all the tools you need to create
text, banners, product links and more.
Where do I place the links?
You should place the links where they are easy for visitors to find, on your homepage or any other high traffic area.
How often should links be updated?
You should update the links as often as possible. Creating new links targeting the interests of your visitors will increase sales from the program.
What is the potential to earn in commissions?
We can’t predict how much you will earn from an affiliate program because we don’t know anything about your web site or your visitors. However, affiliates that maximize the potential of the program can earn significant commissions with very little work.
How do I keep track of commissions?
Using an affiliate interface, you can access reports that provide information on impressions, click throughs, orders, shipments and commissions earned.
How often do I get paid?
We will send you a check for a percentage of the sales you referred to our site every calendar month, provided you earned more than $50.
How much do I get paid in commissions?
- $0-9,999: 7%
- $10,000+: 10%
How will you know that the orders came from my site
All links from your site to our site contain a unique identifier so that every time a user comes to us via your site, we know to credit you when a purchase is made.
How do you handle returns?
If a customer returns a product, or if a credit card charge is reversed due to a dispute, your account will be debited for any money earned on that transaction.
