This agreement is designed with you in mind, as well as to protect ContentFries and our customers.
To register as an affiliate, you must own an active ContentFries Membership, and no less than a month must have elapsed since your purchase.
All affiliate registrations are carefully inspected by ContentFries team and we are very grateful that you will provide us with accurate and truthful information. Please note that it may take anywhere from two to seven days to review your application. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
If your application will be approved, you will be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote ContentFries via referral links. More referrals information, statistics, etc. will be available in the Affiliate Zone.
Commissions and payouts
When a customer purchases ContentFries membership using your referral link, you will earn a 20% commission. Higher commission rates can be activated on an individual basis, or by a special offer that increases the commission rate.
We pay out affiliate commissions in USD directly to your Paypal account in the first week of every month. Since we have a 14-day money back guarantee for users with monthly memberships and 90-day money back guarantee for users with annual and lifetime memberships, we only pay commissions that are older than 14 or 90 days respectively. The minimum payout balance is 100$ and we do not enforce a maximum payout balance, so you can advertise and sell to your heart’s content.
In order to receive a payout for your referrals, you must have an active PayPal account. There is a possibility to use another method of receiving payouts, and it is up for discussion, but please note that you will need to pay any additional costs associated with a method of your liking.
Purchases you make yourself will not generate referrals.

Referral cookie lifetime
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 30 days in their browser to give your referred customers enough time to decide if they wish to purchase ContentFries membership, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.
A referral won’t be awarded if: 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) The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).
Direct Link Tracking
There is a possibility to link to our site from your https:// website, so you can avoid using the referral link (e.g. ?ref=john). All that is needed is to inform us about your wish and once we approve the link you sent us, it will be assigned to your affiliate profile, so you will no longer need to use a referral link.
Note: Direct Link Tracking is only available if your site has an SSL certificate, and therefore the https:// protocol. We will only approve websites that are 100% owned by you.
A commission won’t be paid out to a referral if a purchase is refunded.
We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:
- The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the Affiliate Agreement
- The sale that the referral was based on was refunded.
