|What are my responsibilities as an Affiliate?
Your only responsibility is to use the Link Generator, accessed via a password through your Affiliate Control Panel, to create and place links on your site. We handle everything else.
|What are HPBacklink's responsibilities?
We handle customer service and billing for all customers you refer to us.
|How do I know how much commission I've earned?
Through your Affiliate Control Panel, you can access reports, updated once daily, that provide information on impressions, click-throughs, orders and commissions earned.
Please note that publisher earnings are released only once per month, so daily reporting is not available for this program.
|What's the minimum required payout?
You must have a minimum balance of $100.
|When are payments made?
Payments are issued the first week of the following month. For example, payment fo August commissions will be issued the first week of September.
|Can I get a affiliate commission on my own account?
Sorry we will not pay commissions on the affiliate's own HPBacklinks account.
|How will you know that the orders came from my site?
All links from your site to our site contain a unique identifier so that when a user comes to us via your site, we know to credit you when a purchase is made. This is only possible when you create all of your links with the Link Generator at your Affiliate Control Panel.
A 60-day cookie is placed on the user's computer to track those who do not subscribe right away. If the user orders during that 60-day window you will still get credit for the sale, assuming the user hasn't cleared their cookies or clicked another affiliate's link since clicking your link.
|What sales are eligible?
The affiliate offer only applies to new accounts, not users with existing HPBacklinks accounts.
|How are commissions calculated?
For advertiser purchases, commissions will be paid at 10% of gross link purchases. One-time content purchases are not commission-able.
For publisher earnings, commissions will be paid at 10% of net payouts. If we send a publisher $500 for the prior month's earnings, the referring affiliate would receive $50.
Commissions for both advertiser link purchases and publisher payouts are recurring.
