Affiliate Terms & Conditions

This agreement is designed with you in mind, as well as to protect BulkComments and its customers.

Affiliate Membership

Our affiliate marketing program is by invitation only (open only to our customers and active members of our commentary network). So congratulations if you’re accepted as an Affiliate!

Once approved, you will notice that you have been assigned a unique referral ID that you can use to promote BulkComments via referral links. Check out all the tabs above in your private Affiliate Area for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!

Commissions and Payouts

You’ll earn a base rate of 20% commission when a customer purchases a new BulkComments package via your referral link. Commission rates ramp up to 30% based on your production.

We pay out affiliate commissions in USD via PayPal in the first week of every month. The minimum payout balance is $50.00, so that you can receive a decent chunk of cash when payday rolls around. And there’s no maximum payout balance, so your earnings are unlimited!

Please Note: We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases.

Here are the details of our program:

  • To register as an affiliate you must be an active BulkComments commentator or customer
  • You’ll be paid a starting rate of 20% commission for every sale generated through your link (increase based on your performance)
  • Minimum payout balance is $50.00, and no maximum payout (we pay in USD)
  • Commissions older than 30 days will be paid within the first week of each month
  • Referrals can be paid via the Payouts Service, PayPal, or other options that may be available for your account
  • Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address)

Referral cookie period

When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase BulkComments, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

A referral won’t be awarded if:

  1. The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
  2. The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire)

Refunded purchases

Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $50.00 or more). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason that we deem necessary. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons (this is not an exhaustive list):

  1. The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  2. The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

Affiliate news and updates

By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from BulkComments. Our emails are spam-free and solely designed to provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote our services.

Affiliate application rejection

We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices – or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.
  • Affiliate applications for websites or promotional strategies that we do not believe are aligned with our industry or business may be rejected.
  • If you apply to become an affiliate and you are not an existing customer (made a purchase within the past 6 months) or do not have an active account in our commentator network.
  • Affiliate applicants with websites that re-sell any of our products will be rejected.
  • Websites considered inappropriate by BulkComments will be rejected.

Inappropriate websites:

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected.

Questions regarding your application

When you apply to become an affiliate, we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:

  • We didn’t understand something in your application, or
  • We’d like to learn a bit more about how you will promote BulkComments and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.

Dormant affiliate accounts

We encourage all of our affiliates to actively promote BulkComments to keep earning referral income. If we can help you come up with ideas on how to promote BulkComments, please let us know – we’re here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months. But we don’t want this to happen to you. So let’s work together to help you start earning some cash!

Allowed promotional methods:

How you promote BulkComments is reflected in the commissions you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to BulkComments and bring us legitimate customers.

Here are a some examples of awesome promotional methods to help you earn more commissions:

  • Tell clients, customers, or friends about BulkComments and give them your referral link
  • Get active posting in forums where a lot of bloggers and site owners hang out and attach your referral link
  • Write an article or make a video about web marketing, blogging, or other topic and mention us in the article along with your link.
  • Write or record a review about our services
  • Reach out to a broad audience through your social network accounts
  • Do outreach (not spam) to businesses or individuals that have content, but no to low comments (there’s plenty of that around)
  • Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses, and using your referral link in your replies (if allowed). Forums and Q&A are great for this!

Remember: Spam-free promotion is the best way to get more referrals!

Prohibited promotional methods:

We love and back our service 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliate partners who are 100% on board with us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any fraudulent or unacceptable activity – which is something we take very seriously. We’re sure you’ll understand. But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.

  • BulkComments may not be promoted on coupon sites
  • Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for BulkComments, so this method adds no value to us.
  • Paid advertising using your affiliate link in the following manner is prohibited
  • Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads and using our brand name or trying to represent yourself as our brand – or using our brand name as keywords will result in affiliate account deactivation.
  • Promoting incorrect or misleading information
  • Any promotional activity that shares incorrect or misleading information will result in affiliate account deactivation. This includes false information intended to click-bait potential customers. If you are unsure of the correct information or details for promoting BulkComments, please contact us.
  • Any type of spam is prohibited
  • Links, ads, emails, comments… any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote BulkComments. P.S. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it’s spam.
  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited
  • This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated. See above for allowed promotional methods!
  • We’re flattered, but please don’t pretend to be professionally associated with BulkComments
  • Affiliates are not employees of BulkComments.
  • Pretending to actually be BulkComments is prohibited
  • Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official BulkComments site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them in iframes).

Consequences of prohibited promotional methods

If your promotional methods violate our terms, we reserve the right to reject your referrals and disable your affiliate account. So be sure to use allowed promotional methods and help us to help you succeed as an affiliate!
