Affiliate marketing is a relatively trouble-free way for your organization to earn money. Because affiliate marketing doesn’t require you to offer products or services for purchase, but only to place promotions on your site, it frees you from many of the responsibilities and complications of traditional sales models.
Araize’s affiliate marketing programs works because we handle all the logistics involved in selling the FastFund Online services, processing customer orders and payments, while you collect a commission for each FastFund Online sale by a visitor sent to the Araize website from your website via your affiliate link.
Araize will administer the program, handling all the work involved, providing tracking and reporting to you. Your only obligation is to maintain a link from your website to Araize’s website.
The following are the terms and conditions of participating in the Araize Affiliate Link Program. “Affiliate” refers to you, and “Araize” refers to Araize, Inc. located at 27 Kingswood Ln., Chapel Hill, NC 27517.
Payments and Commissions
- 8% – First twelve months of FastFund Online Licensing
- 4% – All subsequent years of FastFund Online Licensing*
*To receive ongoing commission, affiliate must maintain affiliate link on their web site.
Payments are made once the affiliate has earned more than $100. Subsequently, payments of the balance are made roughly every 45 days as long as the balance is over $100. Although the Affiliate Program is not limited to the U.S. all payments will be made in U.S. dollars.
If customer adds new FastFund Online modules, affiliate receives 8% of the total fee paid by customer for the new modules, during the first year, and 4% for subsequent years. If a qualifying sale is canceled or refunded, the related commission will be deducted from the next monthly payment.
