By applying to the ProtoPie Affiliate Program, you are confirming that you understand and agree to the terms and conditions below.
Affiliate Program Overview
The ProtoPie Affiliate Program is an affiliate marketing network between ProtoPie and its Affiliates that enables Affiliates to earn commissions as a percentage of sales referred to ProtoPie via a unique affiliate link. This link (as well as banners and images with embedded links we provide) can be posted anywhere online: blogs, videos, forums, social media, affiliate marketing sites, etc. To become a ProtoPie Affiliate, applicants must first register with their basic information and create an account. All Affiliates must read these terms and conditions before registering and posting any affiliate links.
For a referral sale to generate a commission, the customer must complete the full payment for the product. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when a customer clicks through the Affiliate’s link and makes their first ProtoPie Pro Plan purchase on our site within ninety (90) days of clicking this link. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the Affiliate. Current commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard.
Every first-time payment made through the affiliate link within the 90-day time frame will earn a 20% commission. For affiliates that have been given a personal unique discount code from ProtoPie, the commission will also be paid for sales made using this unique discount code.
In the case of a customer subscribing with a discount coupon. The 20% commission will be applied to the total order amount after the discount.
All commissions will be remitted to the Affiliate’s PayPal account within the first 15 days of the month following the affiliate-assisted sale. All sales completed by 11:59PM (Korea Standard Time) on the last day of a given month will be included in the payment invoice and remitted within the first 15 days of the following month. Affiliates can check their current balances and make changes to PayPal account information in the Affiliate Dashboard. The Affiliates will be responsible for covering any applicable Paypal fees for the payment.
For affiliates that have not added their Paypal account information, their commission payments will be pending and paid out the following month after they add their Paypal account.
In the event a customer requests a refund for a transaction for which the Affiliate has earned commissions, any commissions earned on the refund amount will be deducted from the Affiliate’s balance and will not be included in the total commissions’ payments for a given month.
