About the affiliate program
What is an affiliate program?
An affiliate program is a partnership between you and us that allows you to earn a commission by referring customers to our website. We benefit by increasing our customers and sales, and you benefit by receiving a percentage of any sales created through your referrals.
How does it work?
We give you a unique link to refer customers to our website. We track who clicks on the link, and if someone places an order as a result, you earn a percentage of their order.
How much do I earn?
We offer a commission rate of 8%. This is 8% of the sale total before VAT (UK sales tax) and shipping costs. For instance, if a customer clicks on your link and places an order which totals £50 before VAT and shipping, you will receive £4. Please note the prices shown on the website include VAT at 20%.
What if the customer doesn't order straight away?
Does it cost me anything?
No, our affiliate program is completely free to join.
Who runs the program?
Our affiliate program is run by an independent third party called Refersion. You can visit their website here. Using a third party site like Refersion gives both you and us peace of mind that sales are being tracked fairly and accurately.
How do I know if someone clicks on my link?
Once you've signed up to the program, you will be able to log into our affiliate area where you can access resources, see your successful sales conversions and keep track of the commission you've made.
How quickly will I receive my commission?
We make commission payments monthly. You will receive your commission roughly around the 14th of each month.
What happens if an order is returned?
If a customer referred by your link returns a product for a refund, or if credit card charges are reversed due to online credit card fraud, we will deduct any commission earned on that sale from your account. As our products are personalised customers can only return them if they are damaged or faulty, which does not happen often.
Will you provide me with images and logos to promote your website?
You can access images and banners in the affiliate area. These can easily be pasted into your website or blog and contain your unique referral link. You are also welcome to save any images from our website to use in the promotion of our products, just right click on any image and choose 'save as'. If you can't find the images you need we are happy to work with you to meet your specific requirements, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Will you send me free samples of your products?
We do not send out free samples to our affiliates, however you are welcome to use your own referral link to purchase products, thereby earning your 8% commission on these sales. We are happy for you to do this for a reasonable number of sales, but please note we reserve the right to suspend or close your account if we feel it is being misused.
