Refer a Friend (Affiliate) Agreement

Affiliate Registration

To register as an affiliate you must have an active Thrive Collective membership.

When you sign up to Thrive Collective, you are automatically added as an Affiliate, awesome! You’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote Thrive Collective via referral links. Check out your private Affiliate Area for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!

Commissions and payouts

You’ll earn your monthly Thrive Collective subscription back in GBP (for example £15 or £20) when a new member becomes a Thrive Collective subscriber using your referral link.

We pay out affiliate commissions in GBP via PayPal. It will take around 28-days for payments to be made, and you will be notified via PayPal to the email address that you signed up to Thrive Collective with!

In order to receive a payout for your referrals, you must have a PayPal account associated with the email address you used to sign up to Thrive Collective. If your PayPal email address is different, you can change it by clicking the Settings link in the Refer a Friend area.

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

Here are the details of our program in summary:

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 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase AffiliateWP, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

A referral won’t be awarded if:

  1. 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)
  2. The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).

Refunded purchases

Valid referrals will be included with each commission payout. 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:

  1. The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  2. The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

Affiliate news and updates

By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from AffiliateWP. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the AffiliateWP affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote AffiliateWP. As an affiliate you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won’t spam you, ever – promise!

Affiliate rejection

We reserve the right to revoke affiliate status for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning revoke affiliate status. Below are just a few reasons why an affiliate is revoked (this is not an exhaustive list):

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. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

AffiliateWP Affiliate Program Policies

Allowed and super cool promotional methods

How you promote Thrive Collective is reflected in the commission you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to Thrive Collective and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our team of affiliates blog about the great work they are doing and mention Thrive Collective.

Here are a few examples of awesome promotional methods to earn more commission:

Prohibited and super uncool promotional methods

We love and back our product 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take pretty seriously. We know you’ll understand.  But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.

Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads and using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.

If you’re unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us. 

Consequences of not-cool promotional methods

If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected and we may disable your affiliate account. We reserve the right to do this and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs. Please use allowed promotional methods, and help us to help you succeed as an affiliate!

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. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

The important stuff

By accepting these terms and conditions you are providing your nonlegal agreement to abide by them. By registering and being approved as an affiliate in our affiliate program you agree that your commissions are subject to approval before they are accepted and subsequently paid.

The affiliate relationship does not represent a professional or formal agreement, and as an affiliate, you are not an employee of Thrive in Business with Sam Dixon.  You agree that this is not a legally binding relationship and as a result may not take legal action against Thrive in Business with Sam Dixon. These affiliate terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

Phew! Sound good? Great! Thanks for taking the time to read through these T’s and C’s and for agreeing to them. We can’t wait to have you on board!
