  • Another question about EUKhost affiliate program

    I have another question about how EUKhost affiliate program works. Suppose Jim came to EUKhost website through John's affiliate link and took no action. Then the other day he was back to the website through Smith's affiliate link and purchased a hosting plan. Who would get commission for his purchase?

    Hi there,

    In your scenario it would be Smith's affiliate link that would earn the commission.

      As the order was placed using Smith's affiliate link, Smith will earn commission for the order. The Affiliate system tracks the link using which the order is placed and the client who is provided with that particular link is given commission for the order.

        But what if a week after purchasing the hosting plan via Smith's affiliate link, Jim would return to eUKhost.com (by typing the address in his browser) and made a second purchase (let's say, a VPS)? Would Smith earn commission for this order too?

          I think so. I asked about the 150-day tracking period here and it seems that Smith would get commission for any purchase Jim made within 150 days after he made the first purchase. I can be wrong though.

            Hi everyone,

            Commission is only attributed to the affiliate (Smith in this scenario) if the order is placed through the link in the first place.

            So to answer this scenario, when Jim purchased his VPS (thanks Jim!) Smith would not earn his commission as Jim did not go through the affiliate link for that particular order

            The 150 day tracking period is for when the affiliate link is used and only for that specific order. If Jim went through the link a second time for his VPS then waited upto 150 days then Smith would have got the commission.

            I hope this clears things up a bit

              Thanks for the clarification. So, each affiliate link works for a single purchase, after which the cookie expires.

              One more thing: if Jim cancels his order, does Smith lose his commission?

                Commissions are approved only after the referral order has completed 30 days. This is due to the 30 day money back guarantee we have on all plans except dedicated servers. So yes, in case Jim cancels the order within the first 30 days and claims refund, then Smith will lose his commission.

                  That is fair. Moreover, I think you shouldn't worry so much about losing commission. EUKhost is a great hosting provider with excellent service. I believe it has a pretty low refund rate.

                    This sounds very fair to me. It also gives you an added motivation to keep people returning to your site with the potential of clicking one of your eUK affiliate links again.

                      Yes indeed, you'd not just be promoting the affiliate link, but would inturn establish a reputation for suggesting worthy options and opinions to users over the web. If your opinions and suggestions are liked by people, you'd definitely get returning website traffic hence be considered as a trusted source by Google as well.

                        This is interesting, something I have never thought before. Do you want to say that Google considers the amount of returning traffic a website has received when they calculate the website's ranking?

                          Yup, the higher the volume of returning visitors the more trusted is your website in the eyes of Google. :wink:

                            Returning visitors really hold the key to a website's success. So many websites are developed for these one-time visits. Regardless of what kind of online business you have or how you monetize your site, you can increase your traffic exponentiallly if you focus on encouraging people to return to your website.
