We have a very generous affiliate program with 50% commission in place. It is beneficial and very profitable for photographers and educators who have a big following or run photography and retouching workshops.
There’s no initial investment involved, but we do have an affiliate enrollment program in place. All our eBooks have been selling very well and we’ve been receiving GREAT feedback.
Our eBooks are located on one of the leading shopping cart websites for selling downloadable products called e-Junkie. A partner obtains an affiliate link to a specific product from their account and uses it in his or her blog posts, reviews, website store, Facebook or Twitter posts, and when a buyer arrives to the product page e-Junkie tracks what affiliate link was used to get there. Even if the buyer doesn’t purchase the product right away, but comes back in a month or two and then buys it, it still is considered as an affiliate sale and e-Junkie informs both the seller and the affiliate about it. e-Junkie relies on cookies in the buyers’ browser, so if the buyer who arrived to the product page buys a product, signs up for our Newsletter and later buys another product via our Newsletter, both purchases will be considered as affiliate sales by e-Junkie.
E-Junkie creates Affiliate sale monthly reports on the first day of the following month, and we pay our affiliates within the first 15 days from the beginning of the new month. We transfer affiliate commissions to the PayPal accounts which our affiliates are signed up to our affiliate program with. Please note, that Credit card and Paypal fees (approx. 3.4% + 1% (Non-U.S.) per transaction) will be subtracted from the sale price before the affiliate commissions are calculated. So, the affiliate commission is 50% of the amount we actually receive (Net) from our buyers after Paypal takes their fees out.
For one-time or first-time affiliate sales we have a holding period in place to avoid fraudulent use of our affiliate program. Such commissions are paid out in the first 15 days of the month following the 30-day holding period. For example, a one-time or first-time affiliate sale took place on the 15th of May. The holding period is 30 days (ends on the 15th of June). Such an affiliate commission will be paid out in the first 15 days of the month which follows the end of the holding period – in this example between the 1st and the 15th of July.
Anyone who signs up for our affiliate program only to get a 50% discount on their own purchase will be banned from our affiliate program immediately. We consider it a fraudulent use of our affiliate subscription, in other words, cheating. Such “affiliates” are removed and banned from our affiliate list with no such “commissions” released.
It’s all very simple, reliable, tested and trusted, so try it and you’ll be amazed how easy it is to create an additional income stream by simply recommending our awesome retouching and photography eBooks.
