What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing, in which a vendor rewards an affiliate (marketer) commission for each visitor that purchases a product from their website as a result of the affiliate’s marketing efforts.
How does the Georgia Expo Affiliate Program Work?
It’s simple. After you have registered all you have to do is share your unique affiliate code(s) by placing a text link on your website/blog/social media account etc. When one of your referrals visits Georgia Expo a cookie is set on their device. If they then buy products via our website in the following 28 days you will be credited with commission. Your commission can then be cashed out via PayPal.
How Much Commission Can I Earn?
The amount of commission per referral is currently set at 5%.
If a customer places an order for $147.00 using your referral link, then you will receive 5% of $147.00 = $7.35
How Can I Keep Track of How Much I Have Earned?
Once you have registered and account through our website you will be able to visit our Affiliate Area where you can log in and see various information about your referrals including the number of referrals, your earnings, conversion rates etc.
Why Have I Not Been Paid For All Referrals?
Affiliate links rely on the visitor storing our tracking cookie on their computer. If their web browser is blocking cookies then we are unable to see that you have referred them to us.
Also, the cookie is only valid for 28 days. This means that if you refer a visitor to us but they choose not to make a purchase on our site within those 28 days then the cookie will die and again we will not be able to see that it is you that has referred them to us.
Furthermore, to protect ourselves against fraud and charge backs we operate a 30 day delay policy. If the transaction is cancelled or reversed within the 30 days then commission for that sale will not be paid.
How Often Will I Be Paid?
Once the 30 day delay period has elapsed your earnings will be available for cash out via PayPal. We will pay this to you automatically, on or around, the 1st day of each month.
For example a referral that is made on 15 November would be paid into your PayPal account on 01 January.
