Affiliate Agreement

Thanks for your interest in becoming an affiliate. We can’t wait to have you onboard and start generating referrals.

Earn Commission for Referrals

As an affiliate, you will earn 20% on all successful referrals of new customers. You will not receive commissions from existing customers who are upgrading or renewing their subscription.

All affiliate commissions are paid via PayPal or Payouts Service by Sandhills Development. The minimum payout threshold is $50.00.

Customer Refunds

We offer customers a 30-day no strings attached refund guarantee. Hence, only referrals older than 30 days and are still in good standing (not refunded) will be included with the payout. If a payment has been refunded or revoked, we do not pay commission for that referral.

If the pay out day happens while your commissions are within the 30-day refund window, we’ll pay out valid referrals in the following quarter.

When a customer clicks on your affiliate link, a cookie is set on their browser that tracks your referral. That cookie is stored for 15 days after the click. If the customer buys Newsletter Glue on a different browser, or after the 15 days, the referral will not be awarded to you. If you are aware of a sale that didn’t get assigned to you, let us know and we will assign it to you, if it has not already been assigned to a different affiliate. Assigning affiliate commissions will be made at our sole discretion.

If a customer visits Newsletter Glue through multiple affiliate links, the link they used last will get credit for the sale.

Rejected Affiliate Commissions

All tracking of links and determinations of referrals and commissions will be made at the sole discretion of Newsletter Glue. We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Normally, rejections for commission happen for two reasons:

  1. The sale that generated the commission has been refunded
  2. The referral method violated our policies (details below) or the spirit of our policies
