Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up?
Visit our New Affiliate page and create your account. We will need your United States Tax ID or Social Security Number, and resale number as we adhere to all U.S. tax laws and federal regulations. Please fill out our application completely, including all payment information that we will need to make payments to you for sales that are generated through your affiliate links.
How does the affiliate program work?
Once you have created an account and have logged into it you will see an area called "Affiliate Banners." Within this area you can choose from several Greener Country image banners or text links that you will put within your Web site. These links have a special affiliate code that will track visits and purchases made by visitors who come to our site through yours. You can create custom links to specific products within our site, or just link to our home page. Just cut and paste the code from the link you want to use into your Web site to begin generating sales and making money.
Will I get paid for banner impressions or visitors who do not make a purchase?
No, like most affiliate systems all affiliate earnings are based solely on a percentage of actual sales recorded from affiliate referrals.
How much will I make for each sale generated by my affiliate links?
We pay you 15% of product sales--this percentage does not include the shipping amount or any taxes associated with each order.
How can I check my Affiliate account statistics?
Simply log in to your affiliate account with your email and password to gain access to your statistics. In the Affiliate Reports area you will find a detailed account of your referral activity and the sales that were generated via your affiliate links.
How and when do I get paid?
Payment is sent only for affiliate accounts with $50 or more due from the prior month. Checks are printed and mailed on the 15th of each month. There is a $5 processing fee for printed checks to be mailed domestically (U.S. only. International affiliates requiring printed checks will incur actual postage plus a $3 handling fee). Please allow 5-10 business days for domestic U.S. Mail delivery and 2-5 weeks for international mail.
PayPal is our preferred method of payment. Electronic payments are processed via Paypal on the 15th of each month and require no additional processing fees. We highly recommend that you create a Paypal account for this to avoid any processing fees.
Are affiliates considered employees--are taxes withheld from their earnings?
No, affiliates are not Greener Country employees and are considered independent contractors. As such they are subject to the tax laws that govern independent contractors for the state where they do business. We do not withhold taxes from affiliate earnings, and it is their responsibility to pay taxes on the money they earn as affiliates in our program.
Which links generate the most clicks and sales?
By far the graphical banner links to our individual product pages generate the most clicks and sales. The larger the banner the more clicks and sales it will generate. You can experiment with the various banners that we offer to see which one works best for your site.
Where on my site should I place the banners/links?
Many studies have shown that the areas on Web pages that have the highest click through rates are located in the top-area of a sites home page, and that the top-right area may be the best position for the most click-throughs.
