Purchases via Website
You will also be provided log-in credentials to the Affiliate Portal (“Portal”) along with a unique affiliate link.
An “Affiliate Link” is defined as a hyperlink or URL which contains the Partner’s ID with the intention of tracking referred traffic to the Coaches & Company website (www.coachesandcompany.com the “Website”). When you, as an Affiliate, direct or send a prospective buyer to the Website via a correctly formatted referral link and that visitor then purchases a product or service from our Company – the Affiliate will receive a commission from our Company on the sale of that product or service (the “Commission”).
Non-Affiliate Link Purchases
When you, as an Affiliate refer an individual to our Company, and that individual completes a purchase and becomes a customer, you, as an Affiliate, will receive a twenty-five percent (25%) commission from our Company on the sale of that service (the “Commission”).
If Company’s products are not purchased via an affiliate link, referrals cannot be tracked by the system and will not be paid out. Notification via email will not affect this policy.
