We understand that there are two primary types of Affiliates. Those who already have their own website, mailing list, customer list, social media following, etc, and those who happen to be well connected to individuals just like that. Our Affiliate program offers an opportunity for each type of Affiliate to thrive by allowing the recruitment of Sub Affiliates. Visitors to our store who become a new Affiliate but were referred by an existing Affiliate – using a proper Affiliate URL or Direct Link – will automatically become a Sub Affiliate of the Referring Affiliate. When the new Affiliate refers a customer, he or she will earn the standard commission applicable, while the Referring Affiliate will also earn an 5% of all sales made by customers referred by the new Sub Affiliate. The Parent Affiliate can build a base of Sub Affiliates and earn commissions on all sales without ever making a sale on his or her own.
There is no limit to how many Sub Affiliates you can have. Having said that, we want to shy away from having our store appear as a multi-tier marketing organization. As a result, the Parent Affiliate commission of 5% is only issued for Affiliates directly referred by the Parent Affiliate, not any deeper levels below.
In order to have a new Affiliate become your Sub Affiliate, they must be referred to our site using your standard Affiliate URL or a Direct Link that has been approved for a website you manage. We highly recommend sending new Affiliates to either our Why Partner With Us page so that he or she can learn more about our program before signing up. If your affiliate ID is 0, your Affiliate URL would be https://pinklotus.com/shopelements/affiliates/partner?r=0 – however if you are sending new Affiliates to us via Direct Link, you can simply link to the page without appending your Affiliate ID.
Whether you have Sub Affiliates or not, any referral sales you generate directly with your own Affiliate URL or Direct Link will still earn you your regular commission based on your current payment tier (your current tier is ). Therefore, if your goal is to be active as an Affiliate but also recruit Sub Affiliates to boost your passive income, that will work perfectly fine with our system.
