So, let's get started, shall we?

  • First of all sign up  by clicking this link to visit our Affiliate LogIn Page.  Be sure to keep your email up to date so that you may receive commissions as they come in.
  • Use your back office to check your commissions, get affiliate links and much more.  Keep your password safe.
  • Find Affiliate Images here.  You can use them in your links to look more professional.  Please let us know if you need an image that is not listed.

The Affiliate Program is easy.

  • Once signed into the back office you will see this:


"My Affiliate Affiliate" image



  • This shows that you have choices to make.  In the "My Affiliate Account" section you can edit the info you have already entered upon sign up, change your password or change how you are paid.
  • Next is the "My Tracking Information" which allows you to create custom tracking codes to use as text links or embedded in your images.
  • Last is your "My Transactions" section where you can view how your tracking code is working for you.


Let's look at the "My Tracking Information" and see how to make a link.

  • The first thing you do is notice your tracking code number in the top box.  This is your personal affiliate code which will be in all links you use for your referrals.  Then see that box under it?  The tracking link generator looks like there is nothing there but click in that box.  Notice how it begins to show you a drop down of products.  Begin typing the name of the product and it will populate with product choices.  Just choose the one you are looking for.  Then when you click on the product your entire link will show up in the third box below.  Copy that link to use.
  • See the two images below here to show an example of before and after creating a link.  Once you have clicked continue it will take you back to the affiliate dashboard where you can begin again to create another link or check your affiliate info as mentioned before.

The codes are not saved.  You merely create new links each time and it will just add the tracking code in the same way.  Just copy the links to use.

Now you are ready to go.  Make your links and add them to your website or emails.  No need to keep track of them since they are identical each time you create them except for the ID of the products you choose.  Just remember where you place them in your own site so you can keep them up-to-date.


One more IMPORTANT thing: You only need your customer to come into our store using one tracking number.  Once they arrive, the tracking number will disappear from the address bar but it will remain in the cookies for 60 days or until they click through your site again.

 

Next, I'm sure you are wondering "How much will I make and how will I be paid?"

  • Commission rate:
    Commission are at 15%.

  • How a commission is determined:
    Affiliate commission are paid on referrals and repeat purchases.

  • How commissions are paid.  Associating a commission with an affiliate:
    Commissions are paid in this way.  Affiliate commissions are assigned, but not yet paid to an affiliate when the link is used.  Because there can be returns, undeliverables or charge backs for false use of a credit card, there is a one month wait cycle for assignment but the commissions are just waiting there either way.   This is standard with affiliate programs.  This means that sales any day from the month of June will be paid out the last week of July; if you have accumulated $25 by June 30th.  C
    ommission are then fully updated after the product has been received by the buyer.  When commissions are approved each month they are paid through Paypal or Business check.  A Paypal account is not necessary at sign up but you will have to accept the payment when it arrives if you choose this option.  A valid email address must be on file for you to get paid.  Please make sure to keep this information up-to-date in your account login.

  • When a commission is paid:
    Payments are made when your account produces $25.  Note that this does not mean $25 of sales value but it is actually $170 in sales in our store.

  • Personal Sales:
    Personal sales do not count toward affiliate commissions.  IP, billing and shipping addresses along with telephone numbers are tracked.  You may not purchase under your own affiliate link and receive commission.  We pay you 15% minimum for the acquisition of new and repeat customers. 
    Please take advantage of our discounts for larger quantities if you would like to save on your personal purchases.  Our product discounts go up to 25% on most products and more on wholesale items.

  • How commissions continue:
    Cookies are for 60 days so be sure to engage with your friends, family and customers.  This is because we pay you for referring so keep on referring.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

See the example:  These are some of the fields in order as they appear.  We are only showing some fields to give you an idea of how it looks on our end.  Notice how the affiliate and commission fields appear.  If there was no affiliate link used, those fields would not be there.  But since this customer clicked through an affiliate link to our store then the database is asking for us to appropriate the commission.  The commission will be added and it will automatically be removed if the customer were to have a refund for some reason.
