11. Affiliate Link

You are participating as an Affiliate through our invitation or by request. All Affiliates are subject to approval by us in our sole discretion.

Here’s how it works: Once you have been selected to be an Affiliate, you will be issued a unique “Affiliate Reference”, which can be included in URLs to in ways instructed by us, which will allow us to identify Enrollees to Franklin Method as originating from you. Such links are called “Affiliate Links”. These Enrollees are tracked with this unique reference and sales are recorded accordingly.

To receive Commissions, you must use the provided unique Affiliate Reference in your links in the specified way.  You are solely responsible for insuring that the Affiliate Link is set up properly to qualify for Commissions. So please make sure it is set up right from the start so you can get paid.

12. Affiliate Commissions and Payment

Affiliate Commission Amount. We will pay you a Commission of 10% of the total amount actually collected by us for each enrollment in the Franklin Method Online Course system or Membership Program (excluding tax and refunds) for each Enrollee who signs up for Franklin Method using your unique Affiliate Link.  All payments will be made in U.S. dollars.

Enrollees to Whom Commission Applies. A Commission applies to any Referral in Franklin Method (other than you) who signs up using your unique Affiliate Link as a result of your own e-mail and/or social media marketing promotions, or through other means of communication by you, provided that theReferral signs up for Franklin Method through your unique Affiliate Link. You may not earn a Commission on your own enrollment inFranklin Method , nor that of your family members, or businesses you own, in whole or part. We generally do not change which Affiliate is credited for which Enrollee, and by agreeing to these terms you also agree not to ask us to do so. The tracking is completely automated.

45-Day Buffer. For a sale to generate a Commission to you, the Referral must remit payment, either in full or installment, have their enrollment in Franklin Method be fully completed, and allow a 45-day period after enrollment to lapse to allow for an occasional case-by-case refund to the Enrollee. We don’t typically allow refunds, but in the rare case that we do, this just gives us the time we need in case it happens.

Payment of Commission. All Commissions earned will be paid as follows:  You will receive your Commission on a monthly basis, with each payout covering the amount owed that has been paid to us at least 30 days in advance.  The Commission shall be paid by us to you via PayPal, but we may change our payment mechanism at any point. You are authorizing us to make such payments via any standard payment format of our choosing.  You must have earned at least $20.00 in Commissions before any Commission payment will be made to you.

Refunds. We have a no-refund policy, but occasionally refunds do happen. Your commission will be deducted correspondingly. Refunds are not subject to the 45-day lapse, which means the refunded commission will be deducted from your balance immediately while the commission on the original payment will still be subject to the 45-day lapse. This means that a refund that happens within the first 45 days will temporarily affect your balance negatively. This is an unintended side-effect of the underlying implementation. We might change this in the future.

Assignment of Affiliate Credit: Generally, with monthly memberships, an affiliate credit is assigned at the time a trial account is opened. However, in some cases, we may reserve the right to reassign affiliate credit to another affiliate if a special effort by a second affiliate caused the Refferal to become a paying customer. This will be at our sole discretion. We’re here to reward our affiliates in the fairest way we know how to. Under no circumstance will we split affiliate credit between more than one affiliate, however.
