This agreement is to explain the Affiliate Program you as an affiliate will be entering into with Rebecca Catterall doing business as The Business Wife.

Promotion Policies

I want affiliates to earn commissions while bringing new customers to my platform and I want to make it simple for everyone to do that.

  • But – like anything in life there are a few rules:
  • Do not post your affiliate link or coupon codes on coupon sites. 
  • Do not spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote your affiliate links. I
  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by me is prohibited.

Inappropriate Websites

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliates running my links on inappropriate websites will be deactivated, and I reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a reason for deactivation.

How Affiliates are Determined at Checkout

When a user visits through one of your affiliate links, a cookie is placed on their computer for 6 months (or until they manually clear their cookies) to track that user. If and when that user checks out for a product, if a cookie with your affiliate code is present, your account will gain credit for that sale.

If a user visits thebusinesswife.com or my Thrivecart or Membervault shop through multiple affiliate links, the link they used last will get credit for the sale.

Cookies are stored for one browser only. If a user switches browsers or otherwise checks out with a browser where the affiliate cookie was not set or expired, I can not track that referral.

Compensation

The amount of commission you will be paid is based on the total price paid during checkout.

This range of commission applies to full price checkouts, as well as the occasional times that users pay less during a sale or as part of a promotional offer.

Compensation amounts are 40%.

There are no commissions on free users, but many of them will upgrade at some point. If they do so with your affiliate cookie present, you will get a commission for that sale.

Your own purchases are not eligible for commissions, even if purchased under a different account or email address.

Payouts

Payouts will be paid in GBP monthly after 30 days manually via Paypal. Paypal requires that you have a business account to receive your payment after 30 days. It’s easy to convert a personal account into a business account. For more info on how to do so, click here

The Business Wife uses Thrivecart or Membervault Affiliate tracking to automatically generate the total amount due to the affiliate for all commissions payable under this agreement and shall remit payment to the affiliate based upon that info.

Wordy Legal Jargon on disputes to payouts:

All tracking of links and determinations of referrals and commissions will be made by The Business Wife in its sole discretion. In the event that an affiliate disputes in good faith any portion, the affiliate must submit that dispute to The Business Wife in writing and in sufficient detail within thirty (30) days of the date on the invoice. If the affiliate does not dispute the invoice as set forth herein, then the affiliate agrees that it irrevocably waives any claims based upon that invoice. If the parties are unable to arrive at a reconciliation, then The Business Wife’s numbers shall govern.

If an affiliate has an outstanding balance due to The Business Wife under this agreement or any other agreement between the affiliate and The Business Wife, whether or not related to the affiliate program, the affiliate agrees that The Business Wife may offset any such amounts due to The Business Wife from amounts payable to the affiliate under this agreement. In other words, if you owe me money for any other business activities and I owe you money for affiliates, I may if necessary pay myself from the commissions owed to you.

Refunds

I offer refunds on some products. Occasionally a client will request one.

If an order you received a commission for is refunded at any time, I will either (a) void the associated commission for the current month’s payment or (b) deduct the associated commission from a future payment in the case that you have already been paid the associated commission amount.

I will never ask you for money back from refunded commissions.

Reports

At any time, you may access reports on your referrals and conversions here.

Changes to This Agreement

The Business Wife reserves the right to make changes to this agreement, in particular the payment fees, whenever they see fit.

In the case the referral rates are updated, you will be notified immediately. Any sales collected before the change will be compensated at the previously agreed rates. Any sales collected after notification of the change will be compensated at the new rates.

I do not intend to change my rates often, but if my product offering changes my referral rates may need to be updated to reflect those changes.

Affiliate Mailing List

I have a separate mailing list for my affiliates and partners. By becoming a The Business Wife Affiliate, you agree to receive these emails. I will not spam you or send too many emails to this list. I will occasionally send emails about upcoming promotions or changes to my affiliate agreement.

Dissolving this Agreement

At any time, any party may dissolve this agreement. The other party should be notified immediately. All affiliate links will be disabled (they will still function but sales will no longer be tracked). All previously tracked, but unpaid, sales will be used to calculate the appropriate affiliate payment. The final payment will be withheld for 30 days (to allow for refunds) and then paid out to the affiliate.

Your participation in the Affiliate Program affirms that you have read and understand all of the information above.
