(Please also view our full Terms & Conditions ).
Using own links:
You may NOT use your own affiliate links to purchase themes, plugins, or pieces of training. Doing so will terminate your affiliate account(s) and you will forfeit any potential earnings.
UpdraftPlus verify all sales prior to approval:
A referral sale is not complete until after it has been verified that it was a valid sale. We reserve the right to delay the credit of commission (in the form of store credit) until this has been confirmed. Sales at the end of the month may be delayed until the next month for this reason.
Affiliate link usage:
In order for a sale to be credited to your account, the purchaser MUST use your affiliate link on a cookie-enabled computer. Purchases will not be assigned or reassigned to affiliates once the purchase is completed.
Direct traffic is not allowed as we will not be able to track the source. So, sending the links via email or a messenger app is deemed invalid. However, you may send an email out about your blog, then people can go from there to our site.
Using coupon sites are also invalid, or doing any SEO to rank for coupon related keyword searches.
An account must be ordered with billing information that does not match the affiliate’s information.
