Using PhotoPog links and graphics
Once you have signed up for the Affiliate Program and been approved by an administrator you will be assigned an Affiliate ID. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Affiliate ID on your site, in your email, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to PhotoPog.com. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won’t change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the Product Sites. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and PhotoPog.com utilizes such special link formats. Links to PhotoPog.com placed on your site pursuant to this agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Special Links.” You will earn referral fees only with respect to purchases on PhotoPog.com occurring directly through Special Links or through a coupon code that has been assigned to you; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type in a coupon code, or your Affiliate ID, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
Referral Fees/ Commissions and Payment
For a customer purchase to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to PhotoPog.com and complete the purchase during that session, or they must enter a coupon code affiliated with your Affiliate ID at checkout. The session ends once someone closes their web browser, navigates away from PhotoPog.com, or otherwise leaves PhotoPog.com without completing their purchase. If they leave the site, come back later on their own, and then purchase a product, no commission will be earned.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they signed up or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems. We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
Commissions deemed due and owed to you under the program will be paid to you directly by PhotoPog after any holding period and in accordance with a regular payout cycle established by PhotoPog. Payments are processed at the beginning of every month for the previous months commissions. For example commissions earned in September would be processed at the beginning of October. PhotoPog reserves the right to change our regular payout cycle at any time with proper notice. All coupon discounts are ineligible for affiliate commission.
