What is GENDERmaker Affiliate Program and how does it work?

The Affiliate Program is a service allowing participating websites to earn commission on sales referred from links on their website. We provide you with links for your pages to our products and when a visitor you've referred to us makes a purchase, you earn commission. At the end of the month if you have reached the minimum payout level, we send you a check for a percentage of the sales you referred to our site.

Is my website eligible for the Affiliate Program?

We accept almost all types of websites. We do not accept any sites which:

  • Advocate or promote violence.
  • Advocate or promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age.

When and how do I get paid?

We send out checks approximately 30 days following the end of the month. Subject to the Minimum Annual Threshold requirement, if you have reached your minimum payout level (set as low as $20), we will send you a check in US dollars.

What is your commission rate?

For standard affiliates, our commission rate is 20%. Coupon affiliates earn 2.5% commission. A "Coupon Affiliate" is an affiliate whose business model substantially consists of making coupons available. Whether an affiliate is classified as a Coupon Affiliate shall be determined by in its sole discretion.

What is the Minimum Annual Threshold requirement?

Our program is also subject to a Minimum Annual Threshold requirement. No bonuses or commission will be due or payable to you unless and until you reach the Minimum Annual Threshold during the applicable program year. Once the Minimum Annual Threshold requirement is satisfied for the program year, payouts occur on a monthly cycle as described above. The Minimum Annual Threshold is $20.00. If you do not earn bonus credits or commission credits in aggregate excess of the applicable Minimum Annual Threshold, you will not be owed any commission and the credit balance in your account will be reduced to zero at the end of the program year. See the Affiliate Program Agreement for details.

Do you provide return days, meaning if someone doesn't purchase on the first visit?

Yes, we provide 15 return days.

What are return days?

If a visitor comes to from your website, but does not purchase on that visit, you can still earn commission on sales from that customer if they return to, and make a purchase within 15 days of their initial visit.

What is a Sub-Affiliate?

A sub-affiliate is a website you have recruited into the Affiliate Program. In addition to the commission we pay the affiliate you referred, we also pay you 5% commission on this affiliate's sales.

What if I can't receive or do not want to earn commission?

Apply to the Affiliate Program and set the payee address to a popularr charity and we will automatically send the commission check to them or you can email us at after joining the program and we can have your commission rate set to 0%.

How do product returns affect my commissions?

If a customer returns a product for a refund, or if credit card charges are reversed due to a dispute or credit card fraud, your account will be debited for commission earned on that.

How will you know that the orders came from my site?

We track all visitors and sales from your website using a unique identifier that is embedded in your links.
