Perform Better Affilate Program Frequently Asked Questions
How does tracking work?
The code provided for your banners or links will generate a "cookie" for anyone clicking on one of Perform Better Affiliate links. This tracks any purchases they make on PeformBetter.com for 60 days (assuming the customer does not delete their cookies) and attributes them to your affiliate account.
How do commissions work?
Your account is credited with 10% of the order subtotal amount (not including tax or shipping, with discounts subtracted). Commissions are calculated between the 10th and 13th of each month and checks are mailed out on or around the 20th. Each sale has a grace period of 30 days before it is eligible for a commission (this covers returns or cancelled orders). Also, your account must have accrued at least $100 in commissions before a check is sent.
Do I need a website?
You need a live, online presence like a website, blog, or social media page like Facebook. Websites that do NOT attract visitors who may be interested in Perform Better products are unacceptable. Generally, to be accepted, a website must be fitness, sports, rehab or health related (with the exception of personal social media sites).
Can I use affiliate links in email marketing?
Yes, you are allowed to use affiliate banners and text links in emails.
Can I promote via search engine marketing?
Yes, you are allowed to promote Perform Better products in search engine marketing (both natural, organic search and paid search). However, you are NOT allowed to use brand related keywords such as "perform better" or "m-f athletic".
Do you accept affiliates from outside the U.S.?
No, we do NOT accept affiliates who are based outside the U.S.
Will you send out 1099's?
Yes. In compliance with tax laws, a Form 1099 will be issued to affiliates whose earnings meet or exceed the applicable amount warranting the Form 1099. You will be required to provide us with tax information within two (2) days of any request issued by us to issue a Form 1099. However, affiliates are responsible for the payment of all taxes related to the commissions you earn under this Agreement.
