1. What do I need to become an affiliate?


Nothing! Except your desire to be an affiliate.

You don't even need a website (although having your own website helps). You can promote our product via search engines (click here to learn how), postings in internet forums, or simply email to all your friends and people you know with your affiliate link to our product.

All you need to do is to send a visitor to our site via a special link (called 'affiliate link'), and if he or she buys anything from us, you will get 15% of the sale value.

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?


The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor pays for the product, affiliate system checks for cookie (if not found, checks for IP address of referral) and credits your account with your commission.

This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked.

3. Can I make money signing up other affiliates?


Yes! Sign up new affiliates using a special link found in your affiliate admin panel and make 5% of sales they generate.

4. How is the payment handled?


You can choose if you want to be paid by paypal, cheque or direct bank transfer.

You need to have at least £100 in your balance on the last day of a month to be eligible for payment. You can set your own minimum payment balance if you wish.

Payments are made after 20th day of the month following the month your commissions balance reached the minimum payout amount. So for example around 20th of July you will be paid your commissions earned up till the end of June, as long as your balance reached the minimum payment amount.

Please note, for international bank transfers (outside UK) lower than £200 there is a £10 payment fee, so we encourage our international affiliates to setup their minimum payment balance to £200.

Payments are issued in GBP.

5. How do I set up an account?


Setting up an account is very easy and it's completely FREE. You don't have to pay for becoming an affiliate.

All you need to sign up go to the Signup Form below and fill it out. After a review from our affiliate manager, you will receive email with your password and other information.

As our affiliate, you will have your own control panel where you can see detailed statistics of traffic and sales you referred, news and training materials, and choice of banners and text links for our five websites, that you can promote.

Then you only need to place an affiliate link, banner, text link or other link at your web site or place ads in pay-per-click search engines, so you can start sending customers to our web site.

6. What is the affiliate link?


Affiliate link is a special URL where you should be sending the visitors. You will get the URL's for different banners in your affiliate panel after log in.

7. Can I promote you through pay-per-click search engines?


Yes, you can promote us through pay-per-click search engines, however as cannabis seeds can be a controversial product for some search engines, you do it on your own risk. This type of promotion becomes increasingly popular and we are aware of several affiliates promoting our products in this way and making a very good profit. (Well, they keep promoting us month after month, which tells you something, doesn't it?) If you are not familiar with with type of promotion, we recommend this excellent ebook. Some people are making MILLIONS promoting other people's products - why not you?

We just have a few rules that you have to follow if you want to promote our products using PPC campaigns:

You are not permitted to use the Seedsman trademarks and website names and domains and in any paid search activity, whether this is in ad text, copy or display URLs.

You are not permitted to bid or appear on keywords that include our website names and their domains, as well as their misspellings. Examples of forbidden keywords: seedsman, seedsman seeds, seedsman.com, sedsman, seeds man, lowryder, lowryder.co.uk, etc.

If you need any more clarification on this subject, please contact us.

8. What's the cookie expiry time in your affiliate programme?


Our affiliate cookies expire after 60 days. It means that your referrals have 60 days after clicking your link to make a purchase that will credit your affiliate commissions.

Our cookies are not deleted after a sale so you can earn multiple commissions from the same customer.

9. How do I use Direct Link URLs?


Direct Link URLs is an advanced feature that allows you to link directly to our site(s) without additional parameters in the URL. Use of this feature offers two benefits: your visitors don’t know they are clicking affiliate links and they have no chance of removing your affiliate parameters.

So for example, instead of: http://www.seedsman.com/?a_aid=12345678&a_bid=123456 you can use only: http://www.seedsman.com on your website.

To use this feature you will need to set up your Direct Link URLs in your admin panel by providing the domains of YOUR WEBSITES where the standard links to our site would be placed. To make sure all page of your website is covered it’s best to provide your domain in the following format:

*yourdomain.com*

You can find out more details about Direct Link URLs in your affiliate admin panel.

10. Do you offer a product feed?


Yes, we provide a live product feed that you can use to import products to your site and synchronize stock availability.

11. Do you have any training program for affiliates?


Yes, basics of affiliate marketing and most useful tips are described in your affiliate panel. You can find new tips and techniques also in our affiliate newsletter.
If you are serious with earning your income as an affiliate, we recommend this excellent FREE Affiliate System.
