The FTC has strict guidelines for endorsements and testimonials in advertising, and that’s the reason we have these terms and conditions that we require all affiliates to read and agree to. By applying to join our affiliate program, we’re assuming that you’ve read this page, which means if you fail to stick to the terms and conditions on this page, we have the right to remove you from the program without warning.
We also know that a lot of this stuff is hard to understand, so here’s the point:
- We reserve the right to refuse or terminate any affiliate relationship with any site or individual deemed to contain offensive material.
- All of our affiliates are awarded 30% of all purchases made by customers entering the Coded Creative website through valid affiliate links within 60 days of clicking that unique link.
- All accounts are paid out in USD ($) via PayPal. It’s your sole responsibility to maintain a legit PayPal account so that you can accept our payments.
- Payouts are made on the 1st and 15th of every month. No minimum balance is required.
- It’s your sole responsibility that all of your contact and payment details are up-to-date. If you change your email address, update your account as soon as possible.
- Affiliates will not earn referrals on their own purchases.
- Do not be sneaky in how you’re promoting Coded Creative. If you’re sharing a link on social media, plainly let your audience know that yours is an affiliate link. If you’re listing a link on your site, be sure to let your audience know that you earn a commission if they make a purchase.
If you have a question about whether or not something is allowed, our affiliate program, or your account, please send us an email, and we will get back to you the next business day.
