Affiliate Terms & Conditions

1. Approval or Rejection of your Affiliate Account

We reserve the right to approve or reject ANY Affiliate in our sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against us for the rejection of your Affiliate Application.

2. Commission Structure

We pay out up to 10% commissions depending upon which offer you are promoting. Please refer to the Affiliate Dashboard for the offers currently available, and to learn what the current commission percentage is for each offer.

3. Commission Payouts

We will disperse Affiliate commissions to you no earlier than 60 days from the date of client purchase to allow for potential refunds and chargebacks. We pay out commissions via PayPal, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing. We have a minimum $500.00 USD payout threshold.

You cannot refer yourself, and you will not receive a commission on your own purchases. 

Payments will only be sent for transactions that have been successfully completed. Transactions that result in chargebacks or refunds will not be paid out.

4. Affiliate Link Tracking

Our Affiliate Program is conducted on the ClickFunnels “Backpack” Affiliate Tracking System, which uses “Sticky Cookies”, meaning that traffic sent to our website via your Affiliate link, resulting in an e-mail opt-in or a purchase, will result in your Affiliate ID being associated with the contact. This means that you may earn commissions on the offer you promoted. Our Affiliate Cookies are set to expire after 90 days, so you may earn commissions 3 months into the future from the leads you send into our system. Please note that technology is often not perfect, and we are not responsible for any potential “glitches” or “service outages” in the ClickFunnels platform.

We recommend that you use the marketing text copy, images and links that we provide to you for each offer, customizing it to match your own voice and personality, as well as your own heart-felt, honest recommendation of our programs.

We generally recommend that you conduct marketing practices using ethical, moral and legal “Direct Marketing” principles.

You may use graphic and text links both on your website and within in your email messages. You may also advertise the our offers in online and offline classified ads, magazines, and newspapers.
