The Plugin Site Affiliate
The Plugin Site Affiliate
Program gives you the chance to easily earn some money. All you have to
do is to place a link to our web site. Placing these links is just a matter
of minutes and will ensure continued revenue if you have a web site with
a sufficient amount of visitors.
How does it work?
to our Affiliate Program below, you will get your personal affiliate
ID. You will also get special URLs, which include your affiliate ID,
for linking to the main page or to products pages at The Plugin Site.
You can place these special links, which include your personal ID, on
your web site, but you can also include them in emails.
When someone uses
your special link, a cookie with your affiliate ID will be saved on
that person's computer. When the person later orders one or more of
our products, your affiliate ID will be saved with the order. A certain
percentage of the order amount will then be recorded as your revenue.
will I earn?
You will get a 20%
commission for every purchase that was marked with your affiliate
ID. The commission isn't calculated on shipping fees, only on the product
price itself. That means if a visitor of your web site clicks on one
of your affiliate links and orders a product from our web site, you
will get a 20% of the purchase price. For example, if your visitor orders
a download or CD-ROM copy of FocalBlade for $49.95 (with or without
shipping fees), you will earn $9.99.
Please notice that
we won't grant you a 20% commission if you are ordering one of our products
with your own affiliate ID. We want to avoid that people subscribe to
this program for the sole purpose of ordering our products at a cheaper
price. If you are subscribed to our Affiliate Program and at least sold
one copy of our products through it, please contact
us and request a special price for ordering one of our products.
How will I know
if I earned something?
As an affiliate
you can contact us with your affiliate
ID and ask how many items were sold with your affiliate ID and how much
you have earned. We will also send you a notification by email when
you affiliate revenue reached the amount of $70 (in case you didn't
choose the Paypal option for getting paid). A method for querying your
affiliate revenue online will be implemented in the near future.
How and when will
I get my earned money?
There are several
options for sending you the earned money. The easiest way is to send
you the money via Paypal. If you have no Paypal account yet,
you can open one for free by visiting www.paypal.com.
Paypal also lets you withdraw the money to your local bank account for
a very small fee. Within 14 days after the end of a month, we can send
you the money of that month to your Paypal account. There is no need
to wait for a certain fee to accumulate, because Paypal asks no fee
for transferring money to another Paypal account.
We can also wire
your money to your bank account if you are located with in European
Union. In that case please send us your account information. Please
don't forget to include your IBAN and SWIFT code.
We can also send
you a check if you are located with in European Union. If you
are outside the European Union, please ask your bank if it accepts checks
from European banks. Also please ask for the processing fees, if you
don't want to experience a bad surprise. We can send a check 30 days
after the end of the month in which your earnings exceeded $70. Sending
a check with a smaller amount doesn't make sense, because then the fees
will eat up a large part of your earned money.
third alternative is to let us pay the money to you via credit card.
If you have a service that processes credit card payments for you, e.g.
Element5, RegNow or ClickBank, it would certainly be an alternative.
However, we will only place a credit card payment online via a secure
server and not hand out our credit card data directly to you. Nevertheless,
in most cases the Paypal option would probably mean less fees for both
of us. We can pay you by credit card 30 days after the end of the month
in which your earnings exceeded $70.
What conditions do I have to fulfill?
It is recommended
having a web site with at least 1000 visitors per month, otherwise
will very likely not earn anything with this Affiliate Program. You
will do best if your web site receives a lot of visitors that are basically
interested in photo editing, web design or video editing. Nevertheless,
you can also include your special affiliate URLs in a newsletter
or in emails to people when recommending one of our products.
You will also have
more success with the affiliate program if you recommend our products
on your web site, bring your visitors attention to the them or simply
add the link on a prominent place on your web site. Try to avoid the
impression that the affiliate link belongs to an advertisement if you
want many people to click on it. Try to integrate the link as naturally
as possible into your web site, for example by writing something about
our web site or products. You are also allowed to grab images and descriptions
of your product for that purpose.
However, if your
web sites contains violence, racism, pornography, copyright violations
or other content with which we don't want to identify our products,
you won't be accepted or removed from The Plugin Site Affiliate Program.
We will also reserve the right to remove you from our Affiliate Program
if we notice that you are using your affiliate link in emails that can
be regarded as spam.
