Affiliate FAQ

I signed up - what happens next?

Following registration and activation, you will receive login data for the Affiliate Control Panel. The Control Panel will provide detailed information about your partnerships and products. As soon as your account is activated by us, you can begin placing links on your website to start promoting our products. In the section "Products" in the Control Panel, you can create links to the product or request authorization to promote additional products. After you receive authorization, there are two ways to refer visitors and generate affiliate sales:

  • 1. Link directly to the product page. Once you have determined the products to which you want to link, use the Link Generator in the Control Panel (in the 'Products' section) to generate the appropriate links to the product pages and purchase system. These links will automatically include your affiliate ID to ensure correct tracking of the sale. You can then embed these links into your website.
  • 2. Link to the Innovative Solutions website. Since using this method might not result in an immediate sale, a cookie will be placed on the visitor's computer to verify that they have come from your website so you get proper credit for the sale. In order to generate a link for this method, please go to the link generator in the Control Panel.

How can you make sure that all of my referrals are accounted for?

There are two methods to track your sales: You can either choose to rely on the affiliate ID, which is contained by your unique order link, or you can have us place a cookie on the user's machine with your affiliate ID stored in it. If the user purchases the software at a later time, the cookie will be recognized and the sale will be assigned to you.

Is there a minimum amount I have to earn in order to receive payment?

Yes, you must earn a minimum of 100 EUR/USD or 70 GBP in commission before payment can be made. If the minimum amount is not reached, the total is carried over to the next month.

When will I get my commission paid?

Avangate sends out Payment Reports to affiliates on the 8th of the each month for the previous month's sales. Payment is then made on the 15th for the previous month's earnings, provided you reach the minimum payment amount of 100 EUR/USD or 70 GBP in commission earnings.

How much commission will I receive?

Our standard commission rate is 40%. You can see the default commission next to the product name in the product selection list in the Control Panel. You will be informed via e-mail of any changes in commission that occur after activation.

Which payment methods and currencies are available for me to receive my payments?

You can receive payments either by check or wire transfer, in USD, EUR or GBP. You can set your preferred payment method in the Control Panel under "Company Data".

Are there any costs participating as an affiliate?

There are no monthly or fixed costs to you for participating in Avangate's affiliate program.

How should I promote the products?

You can place the referral links anywhere on your website. It is typically a good idea to place them with complementing products or related topics to help generate referrals. Since you have a lot of flexibility with the links, you can also try out different locations of the links on your website to gauge their effectiveness.

Can I adapt the order process to the "look & feel" of my own website?

Yes, you can edit your styles in the Affiliate Control Panel, where you can set a default style for the order process with the Avangate Template Editor.

How can I terminate the partnership with Innovative Solutions?

In your Affiliate Control Panel, you can display all your partnerships in the section "Products". Simply filter by "Partnership exists". For each partnership, you will find a button "Terminate partnership". Then simply remove the links from your website after you submitted your termination request.
