1. Approval or Rejection of the Application
We reserve the right to approve or reject ANY Affiliate Program Application in our sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against us for the rejection of your Affiliate Program Application.
For a sale to generate commission for an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order and remit full payment for the membership. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the Affiliate. Commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard.
The Affiliate will be given the option of receiving 2 different types of referrals that we offer and the commission percentages vary.
Referral option 1 - Buyer Memberships:
Affiliates will earn a 25% commission rate on all new MONTHLY & YEARLY BUYER MEMBERSHIPS signups and will continue to receive a 25% commission every recurring MONTH or YEAR that the BUYER renews their membership.
Cookie expiration: 60 days from arriving at our site via referral links.
This is a lifetime commission and does not expire.
Referral option 2 - Vendor Memberships:
Affiliates will earn a 30% commission rate on all new VENDOR MEMBERSHIPS signups.

Cookie expiration: 7 days from arriving at our site via referral links.
