What is STORE NAME® Affiliate Program?
The Affiliate Program allows any individual to earn a referral commission from referring customers to www.domain.com (“our website”). Referral commission will be generated when a new customer, referred by an affiliate, purchases a product in our store. This referral commission becomes valid when the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product.
To join the STORE NAME® affiliate program, contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org for registration. After you register, your application will be sent for approval. If approved, you will have access to your own dashboard, where you can view your referred visits and purchases, generate your tracking links and etc..
By becoming our affiliate, you are entitled to the following:
Tiered commission system based on total sales referred (ranging from 3%-5% of sales).
Payouts when you reach the minimum $100 via PayPal.
Commissions are paid on the 30th of each month.
Exclusive affiliate discounts.
STORE NAME® uses an affiliate tracking system to tabulate and track sales and commission payments due to our affiliates after the tracking process and purchases are completed. Through the affiliate tracking system website, you will have access to the information that we use to determine the commissions we owe you.
Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard.
STORE NAME® reserves the right to increase or decrease commission rates from time to time as it sees fit. There is no maximum commission limit.
