The Basics in plain English
Anyone can join the johanclaeys.com affiliate program and you are welcome to use all my affiliate tools as well as any ethical means to promote my products. You earn commission through affiliate site links available in your dashboard.
All commissions are paid once monthly, after a 30-day delay (Net 30 basis) to ensure that any refunded purchases can be deducted from the commission. Payments will only be sent for transactions that have been successfully completed. Transactions that result in chargebacks or refunds will not be paid out.
Johanclaeys.com respects the privacy of all it's affiliates and partners and will not share or sell any of your information with 3rd party without your explicit consent nor your referrals.
a. Once you have signed up as an affiliate, I will provide you with a unique referral link (“Link”) that links to JohanClaeys.com website to start the enrolment process. Whenever you tell a potential new subscriber about JohanClaeys.com and how I can help improve their email marketing and business automation through training, you or the potential new subscriber will just use that Link, and I will take care of the rest. You must use the Link, otherwise, we have no way of tracking or knowing where the new subscriber came from, and I will not be able to pay you your commissions. To qualify under the Affiliate Referral Program, any new subscriber must not have been a previous subscriber to any of my Services.
