Frequently Asked Questions
What is an affiliate program?
The easiest way to explain is to tell you how our affiliate program works. First of all you create an affiliate account. You can then choose a banner that you would like to display on your website. We give you some http code to cut and paste into your websites http code, so our banner will then appear on your website. If someone clicks on that banner and comes to Fish Fur and Feather and buys something, you get a percentage of the money made from that sale. Its easy to set up and after that you can be making money for doing absolutly nothing!
Why would I want to join an affiliate program?
The obvious answer here is 'to make some money'. A more creative answer is to explain different ways you can use that money. For example you might run an online forum about keeping aquariums. If you display an affiliate banner and encourage your forum members to buy via that banner then it could pay for the hosting and bandwidth costs associated with running it.
How much do I get paid?
Our standard rate is 5%, check your affiliate page which will show what your current rate is.
When do I get paid?
We will pay you monthly. A payment will not include commission on products which have not been delivered yet (in case they cancel the order). We also have a threshold level, so a payment will not be made until you are owed more than this level. This is so we don't have a situation where we are writing cheques for pennies. The threshold level is currently set to £25.00.
How is the payment worked out?
Commission is worked out as a percentage of the customers checkout total, NOT including VAT and P&P.
Your standard banners don't look very good on my site, can I use my own?
We obviously can't have a special customised banner for each affiliate. However, if your site has, for example, a red theme to it and you want a red themed banner which could also be used by other people with red themed sites then write to us and ask!
Can I put your banner on any site I like?
Yes, within reason. We don't restrict what kind of site you put your affiliate banner on, so long as it doesn't link Fish Fur and Feather with anything that could be considered 'dodgy'. With a little thought though you can make your banner work far better for you. For example, putting a banner on a website about fast cars probably isn't worth it. However, putting a banner on your personal webpage which has pictures of your fantastic reef aquarium is far more relevant and more likely to earn you commission.
