Frequently Asked Questions
1. What do I need to become an affiliate?
Nothing! Except your desire to be an affiliate. You don't even need a website (although having your own website helps). You can promote our product via search engines, postings in internet forums, or simply email to all your friends and people you know with your affiliate link to our site.
All you need to do is to send a visitor to our site via a special link (called 'affiliate link'), and if he or she buys anything from us, you will get commission on the sale value.
2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?
Our Affiliate program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability.
When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor pays for the product, affiliate system checks for cookie (if not found, checks for IP address of referral) and credits
your account with the agreed commission. This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be fully tracked. Post Affiliate Pro is used by thousands of Internet merchants and affiliates world-wide.
