Please read the entire Agreement carefully before registering and promoting the Passionate Penny Pincher shop (shop.passionatepennypincher.com) as an Affiliate.
Your participation in the Program is solely to legally advertise our website to receive a commission on products purchased by individuals referred to the Passionate Penny Pincher shop (shop.passionatepennypincher.com) by your own website or personal referrals.
By signing up for the Passionate Penny Pincher shop Affiliate Program (Program), you indicate your acceptance of this Agreement and its terms and conditions.
1. Approval or Rejection of the Application
We reserve the right to approve or reject ANY Affiliate Program Application in our sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against us for the rejection of your Affiliate Program Application.
Commissions will be paid once a month via PayPal. For an Affiliate to receive a commission, the PayPal email address must be completed in the affiliate account.
Affiliates will receive 50% commission on all digital products and 15% commission on all physical products.
The URL cookie duration is set to 30 days, meaning the affiliate will receive a commission for any sale made within 30 days of the initial customer link visit.
Payments will only be sent for transactions that have been successfully completed. Transactions that result in chargebacks, refunds or cancellations will not be paid out.
We track affiliate sales through a combination of cookies, unique links and email addresses, which get stored after a customer has made the initial purchase. If a customer clicks on your affiliate link, our affiliate management system will track them with a cookie, so you'll get credit even if they don't make a purchase during that specific visit. If they come back by clicking on another affiliate's link you will not get the credit for any sale as the cookie tracking will be set and begin to track for the other affiliate. You cannot refer yourself, and you will not receive a commission on your own accounts.
Affiliates that have not sent an active referral for a sale in 60 days will be removed from the Passionate Penny Pincher shop affiliate program.
