What We Do!

We do everything – host the products, handle registrations and customer queries, and you get paid by simply referring a visitor to us.

How Does It Work?

It couldn’t be simpler! We’ve streamlined our entire affiliate process to ensure ease of use, while still maintaining extremely accurate tracking methods. The process is as follows:
1. Visitor clicks on an affiliate link on your site or in an email or social media etc
2. The visitors IP is logged and a cookie is placed in their browser for tracking purposes
3. The visitor browses our site, registers as a customer and may decide to order
4. If the visitor orders (the order does not need to be placed during the same browser session – cookies and IPs are stored indefinitely), the order will be registered as a sale for you and you will receive commission for this sale. In this program, customers that you refer and register under your unique link, remain your referrals for a lifetime. That means each time they place an order you will get paid for it. Under no circumstances can one customer register under two different affiliate marketing user links, except in an instance where the customer has registered with unique email and passwords and usernames. That’s it! You send us business, we send you money!

Real-Time Statistics And Reporting!
