Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications

Once you have signed up for the Affiliate Program, you will get a unique Affiliate Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to Webnode. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won't change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.

To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the Product Sites. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the Product Sites properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the Product Sites placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as "Special Links." You will earn referral fees only with respect to sign-ups on a Webnode product site occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.

Affiliate links must point to the home page of the product being promoted. Deep links, or links to other pages inside the product site will not earn credit.

Referral fees/commissions and payment

For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to a Product Site and sign up for the product during that session and next 60 days. There is no needed time frame, when the customer has to buy his first premium plan. You will earn money even when a customer buys plan one year after the sign up.

There is one type of referral fee that can be earned: Sales commissions

Sales commissions are earned once the customer has made their first payment for Premium Plan. Affiliates are responsible to pay taxes in his country for all earnings from Webnode affiliate partnership.

The commission structure is subject to change at our discretion. We will notify all Affiliates 15 days prior to a commission structure change. Commissions earned under the previous structure will be paid under the previous structure. Commissions under the new structure will be paid under the new structure.

We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they signed up or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems.

We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.

Payments only begin once 3 or more purchases of a Premium Plan are made by Webnode customers who are referred by you or you have earned more than $300 in your account. If your affiliate account never crosses the $300 threshold, or earns less than 3 purchases of Premium Plans made by Webnode customers who are referred by you, your commissions will not be realized or paid. We are only responsible for paying accounts that have crossed the $300 threshold or receive 3 purchases of Premium Plans made by Webnode customers who are referred by you.

Payments by PayPal

Commissions are paid by PayPal and only by PayPal. We can not send checks, credit credit cards, or send cash. You are required to have a PayPal account to receive commissions. If you don't have a PayPal account you can sign up for one at any time, but you will not be paid until you have one.

Identifying yourself as a Webnode Affiliate

You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of Webnode AG, or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute money to any charity or other cause).

You may not purchase products through your affiliate links for your own use. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement.

Payment schedule

As long as your current affiliate earnings are over $300 and/or 3 or more purchases of Premium Plans are made by Webnode customers who are referred by you, you'll be paid roughly every 45 days. If you haven't earned $300 since your last payment, or you’ve earned 2 or less purchases of Premium Plans made by Webnode customers who are referred by you, we'll pay you roughly 45 days after you've crossed the threshold. Payments are made only via PayPal.
