Commission Rate: You will receive 15% of the sale revenue as a commission from orders placed through your
Affiliate Site (does not includes taxes, shipping). For the sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must
complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered.
Does it cost to join? No, the program is free to join.
Application Process When you complete the application form you will be assigned an affiliate number and a
password. Print that page and/or write them down in a safe spot. You will need them to
access your account. You will then be able to return to this page where you can login
to your account by following the LOGIN links on this page.
Once you have logged into your account you can update your account information, check
the stats of click throughs, see the summary of sales, etc. There you will also be able
to pick up the linking buttons and codes that you put on your site to link to Herbal Hugs.
It is important that you copy the codes exactly as they contain the necessary
information to properly credit your account.
When you have signed up, a notification will be sent to us that you have
applied. We will review your application then send you an email notifying
you of your acceptance. Note that until you have been accepted
into the program by us, any click throughs from your site will not be credited
to your account. The review of your account and notification of acceptance
will take 24-48 hrs. On acceptance you will be added to a special notification list
to receive updates about your account, changes in the program, features and
Payments All sales generated from a click through from your site will have 15%
of the sale credited to your account. Payments are made to you at the
end of each month for totals greater than $25. If it is less than $25
then the balance will carry forward until the next month, and so on. You
also have the option of using your balance as a credit towards purchases
at Herbal Hugs.
Cheques for commissions will be sent on or about the last day of the month for the
previous month's commissions on orders that have completed the payment process. If any
order that generated a referral fee is returned by the customer, or if there are any
returned cheques or charge-backs, the amount will be deducted from the next monthly
payment. If there is no subsequent payment, the Affiliate will be invoiced for that
amount. A statement will accompany each cheque with the details of the sales and commissions.
Payments will be made to the Affiliate in the currency selected by them during the sign-up
process. Sales made from click-thrus that occur in alternate currencies will be adjusted
according to the exchange rate on the day of settlement. These adjustments will be reflected
in the account summary that accompanies your payment.
How does it track sales? Every time a customer visits us through your link, a cookie
is added to their system that contains your affiliate information.
