We appreciate our Affiliate partners and appreciate their hard work and dedication to our brand. We are committed to treating all our employees fairly. So please be respectful to them as well. We’ve created the following Affiliate Agreement with you in mind to give you peace of mind. The company wants to protect its reputation. Here are some really important points you need to remember.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. As you probably know by now, we are strong believers in straightforward and honest communication. For the quickest response, please email us at: [email protected].
Before you can join, please read through the following document. It contains all the information to get you started with this great opportunity.
1. Affiliate Agreement
If any of the modifications are UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. If you CONTINUE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, it will be considered as your acceptance of the change.
Sign up in the Affiliate Program, you must submit an Affiliate application and be approved. Applications are typically processed within a few hours, and applicants will be notified of their acceptance status as soon as possible after their information is reviewed.
4. Affiliate URL
Once you’re approved as an Affiliate, we’ll give you a special URL that’s just for you. This will let you earn money from any leads or referrals that come through your website.
You may also use Direct Link Tracking which will allow you to link directly to our site without the need for an Affiliate link. For more info click here.
Our Affiliate Program provides tiered rates based on the number of successful referrals you make. The more you succeed, the higher your commission rate will be:
- 0 – 25 referrals = 10% commission rate.
- 26 – 50 referrals = 15% commission rate.
- 51 – 100 referrals = 20% commission rate.
- 101+ referrals = 25% commission rate.
Also, commissions may change at the discretion of the product publisher, LinkDaddy.
To get a commission, customers have to complete the order form and pay for the product in full. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through our Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the Affiliate.
Note: Tiered rate does not apply to press releases service and the affiliate will receive a fixed commission of 10%.
LinkDaddy can pay Affiliates via a PayPal account and Store Credits.
We pay out affiliate commissions on the 15th of each month. So, the Affiliate commission for June will be paid out by July 15th.
Paypal Payments: Commissions can be paid via PayPal. If you change your PayPal email, you need to update the payout email on the Affiliate Dashboard. This will ensure that you get paid for any commissions that are owed. We will not resend payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses.
Store Credits: Commissions can be paid with store credit, which Affiliates can then spend on their next product purchase.
By default, we use PayPal as the payment method. You can change your payment method in your Affiliate Area>Settings. For more details click here.
