All MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliates are required to accept these policies and agreement and remain in compliance with these terms. The content below contains everything you need to know to be a MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliate, including resources, recommendations, and the not so fun to read legal stuff.
GETTING STARTED + RESOURCES
1.) Affiliate Starter Kit: We’ve put together this Starter Kit to walk you through how to begin promoting MelaninPreneurs™ products, including tips and tricks, how to use your portal, and where to access links and assets. This will be your go-to place for all your MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliate resource.
2.) Account: You can log into your account anytime and track your clicks and referrals at https://www.melaninpreneurs.com/affiliate-login/.
3.) Need help? If you ever need help or have questions, click here to reach out to us directly.
1.) Commission Rates: You will receive a percentage based commission on the customer’s first purchase and a lifetime recurring commission on subsequent orders.
Basic Commission: 10%
Lifetime Commission: 10%
a. Commissions are not earned on sales tax, shipping, store credit, or your own orders.
b. Certain products do not pay out commissions to MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliates, which includes, but not limited to the MelaninPreneurs™ grant application fees and programs, unless granted on an individual base.
c. You receive commissions made by a new customer who is not an active customer or associated with another MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliate at the time of clicking on your affiliate link.
d. The customer must land on and order on a melaninpreneurs.com landing page in order to be properly tracked (We will not be able to track purchases made on melaninpreneurs.com outside of the United States.)
e. Affiliate links rely on cookies to track sales so the customer cannot have cleared their cookies. However, once a customer is associated with a MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliate, all future orders will be credited to that affiliate even if the cookie has been cleared, expired, or if they click on another affiliate’s link.
f. Only affiliate links and approved direct links can be used to track sales. Incorrect use of affiliate links will cause inability to track referrals.
g. You must live in the United States. Commissions are not paid outside the United States.
3.) Stripe: Be sure to add your Stripe details to your profile so we can send you your commissions. We pay commissions on the 5th of each month for commissions that qualified in the previous month.
5.) Attribution: In the event a single customer clicks two different affiliate links, the first affiliate gets the credit.
6. Cookie Window: Ninety (90) days of clicking your affiliate link (unless customer clears their cookies).
7.) Lifetime Commissions: Three-Hundred sixty five (365) days from first order.
8.) Income Taxes: Upon request and prior to your commissions reaching $599.00 you will be required to submit a W-9 form to receive any additional commission payouts.
1.) MelaninPreneurs™ Branding
• Use the language and assets we provided you.
• Combine the words “Melanin” and “Preneurs” and use the “TM” symbol. You’d be surprised at how many times that doesn’t happen.
• Use false or misleading statements on the benefits of using or joining MelaninPreneurs™ (e.g. “Make lots of money with MelaninPreneurs™”)
• Modify or adjust the MelaninPreneurs™ wordmark logo in any sort of marketing material you might create, including the creation of any visual badges.
2.) What’s your title: As we have multiple ways to partner with MelaninPreneurs™, here are some guidelines around what you can and cannot call yourself within the MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliate Program.
Say you’re a “MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliate” or “MelaninPreneurs™ Marketing Affiliate”
Refer to yourself as a Partner or that you’ve “partnered with MelaninPreneurs™ ” nor say “teamed up with MelaninPreneurs™ .” This includes press releases, references in videos, listings on your website, or in any other marketing material.
3.) Buying Ads: You will not purchase ads that direct to your site(s) or through an affiliate link that could be considered as competing with MelaninPreneurs™ ’s own advertising, including, but not limited to, our branded keywords.
1.) Disclose Link Placements: When requested, you’ll share the places you’ve used your affiliate link. This includes, but is not limited to, links, screenshots, and email sends.
2.) Purchasing MelaninPreneurs™ yourself: One of the benefits of the MelaninPreneurs™ Affiliate Program is we don’t require you to purchase MelaninPreneurs™ products or services. If you decide to place an order, you are not allowed to use your own affiliate link.
