Affilliate Program Terms

Commissions.

You will receive a commission for the first purchase made by a new customer who is not already engaged in an active sales process when the affiliate link was clicked.

As you earn more referrals, your commission rate rises. After you have achieved more than 10 sales, your affiliate rate goes up to 50%. This is actually not that hard to do when you consider the monthly payments in the chords club.

  • Up to 10 referrals: 40%*
  • More than 10 referrals: 50%*
  • More than 20 referrals:Talk to us.

*NOTE: PayPal fees are subtracted from commission payments

Limitations.

Payment is only made once the threshold amount is made, $100

You will not receive any payment for cancelled or returned orders.

Affiliate links may rely on cookies to track referrals and if these are cleared we are not able to track sales events.

Sales must occur during the active cookie referral period.

We need affiliate links to track referrals, and if these are not used correctly we can’t track them.

In the case of suspicious or fraudulent use of links, we may require you to prove validity.

Commissions and payouts

You’ll earn an amazing 40% commission on a great product as a customer purchases using your referral link. 

We payout affiliate commissions via PayPal as we start up but will move to automatic payments.  As we have a 60-day money-back guarantee, we only pay commissions that are older than 90 days. The minimum payout balance is $100.00, so you receive a good return when payouts come. And there’s no maximum payout balance.

We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases. We do not offer recurring referrals.

Referral cookie lifetime

When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 60 days to give your referred customers time to decide or ask questions they may have. We like to provide the best customer service

A referral won’t be awarded if:

The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)

The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).

Direct Link Tracking

Direct Link Tracking is only available if your site has an SSL certificate, and https:// and 100% owned by you.

Refunded purchases

Referrals older than 90 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $100.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:
