Voucher Codes

Affiliates may only promote codes that are provided through the CHARLES & KEITH affiliate programme, either through the interface or directly from our Affiliate Manager.

CHARLES & KEITH reserves the right to withhold payment of commission  if unauthorised voucher codes are used in an affiliate sale. We appreciate that consumers may use voucher codes that they have found via a site other than that which is awarded the sale and this will be investigated before decisions on commission payment are made. Any affiliate found to be displaying unauthorised codes may also have their commission set to zero until the code(s) are removed.

Voucher code terms and conditions must be clearly displayed onsite, any affiliate found promoting codes which do not have the clearly marked T&Cs available may have their commission set to zero until the T&Cs are visible.

Where voucher codes are issued with an expiry date this should be clearly displayed and codes should be removed or explicitly marked as expired after this date unless you are advised otherwise. Any affiliates displaying expired codes without marking them as being expired may be suspended from the programme. Please also ensure that you observe the IAB voucher code best practice guidelines.

Payment

Your commission will be paid to you monthly, and any queries over when you will receive this payment should be directed to affiliatesuk@charleskeith.com. Please note that we validate sales after the 30 day returns window has passed, so the earliest you will see a tracked sale either approved or declined is around 4 weeks after the sale date. 

Transaction Queries

For any sales purchased through a cashback site where the sale has either not tracked into a customer's cashback account or has tracked through at the wrong amount, transaction queries can be raised through the relevant cashback partner. The customer will have 6 months from the purchase date to raise a transaction query, and any transaction queries raised after the 6 month period will not be considered.

Feedback support

If you have any questions or suggestions about the programme we would be happy to hear from you. Please contact charleskeith@acquire.co.uk with your comments.
