Affiliate Program Terms & Conditions

____________________________________________________________

In General

This agreement governs your relationship with SpellBrite.com and the site's owner and operator, iLight Technologies, Inc. and it's Affiliate Program. It has designed with you in mind, as well as to protect SpellBrite.com and our customers.

Affiliate Registration

To register as an affiliate you must have an interest in our type of signage product. We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. If you’re approved, welcome aboard! You’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote SpellBrite via referral links. Check out your private Affiliate Area for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!

Commissions and payouts

You’ll earn a sweet 10% commission when a customer purchases any SpellBrite sign or sign component.

We pay out affiliate commissions in USD via PayPal or bank check in the first week of every month. As we have a 30-day money back guarantee, we only pay commissions that are older than 30 days. The minimum payout balance is $50.00, so you receive a decent chunk of cash when payouts come around. And there’s no maximum payout balance, so go nuts!

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

The details in summary:

  • You’ll receive 10% commission for every new sale you refer. The 10% is calculated on the net sales amount, after coupons have been applied and do not inlcude sales tax or shipping amounts.
  • Minimum payout balance of $50.00, and no maximum payout (we pay in USD).
  • Commissions older than 30 days will be paid within the first week of each month
  • Referrals are paid out via PayPal or check.
  • Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address).

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 from SpellBrite.com, 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:

Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $50.00 or over). 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 SpellBrite. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the SpellBrite affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote SpelllBrite products. 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 application rejection:

We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices, or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.

Questions regarding your application:

When you apply to become an affiliate we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:

  • We didn’t understand something in your application, or,
  • We’d like to learn a bit more about how you will promote SpellBrite and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.

SpellBrite Affiliate Program Policies:

Allowed and super cool promotional methods:

How you promote SpellBrite is reflected in the commission you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to SpellBrite and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our team of> affiliates blog about signs, marketing, increasing sales by being seen, etc. and mention SpellBrite.

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

  • Tell clients, customers or friends about SpellBrite signs, and give them your affiliate referral link.
  • Write a review or a blog post about signs attracting more business or SpellBrite and link to our site with your referral link.
  • Reach out to a broad audience with your social network accounts. Tweet about us on Twitter with your affiliate referral link, post about us on Facebook with your affiliate link, or communicate to your LinkedIn followers about signs, marketing, cool new ideas, etc with your affiliate link. Spam-free promotion is a great way to get more referrals!
  • Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses, and using your referral link in your replies.

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.

  • SpellBrite may not be promoted on coupon sites. Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for SpellBrite, so this method adds no value to SpellBrite.
  • Any type of spam is prohibited. Links, ads, emails, comments… any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote SpellBrite. P.S. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it’s spam.
  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited. This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated. See above for allowed and super cool promotional methods!
  • We’re flattered, but please don’t pretend to be professionally associated with SpellBrite. Affiliates aren’t employees of SpellBrite, or iLight Technologies, Inc. and have no employee rights.
  • Pretending to actually be SpellBrite is prohibited.
  • Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official SpellBrite site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them into iframes).
  • Again, false promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by SpellBrite is prohibited.

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!
