Discount codes Policy
We encourage affiliates to contact us for exclusive voucher/discount codes and additional incentives.
Affiliates may only promote codes that are provided through the affiliate programme (either through our account or directly from the Affiliate Manager).
We reserve 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. Persistent breach of this may result in commissions being declined and suspension from the programme
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 and have their commissions declined. Please also ensure that you observe the IAB voucher code best practice guidelines.
We are happy for you to send offers and affiliate links via email to your users, but all emails must adhere to the CAN-SPAM act. If you wish to send a solus email promoting Start-Rite products, this must be sent to the affiliate manager for approval prior to the broadcast.

We would prefer it if you did not scrape the Wedding Mall site. We have a detailed data feed which should contain all of the information that you need to populate your site with information about Wedding Mall products. If you do scrape the site there is a high chance that your activity will be identified as bot traffic and you will be blocked from accessing the site. If you believe that you need to scrape the site in order to operate effectively please get in touch with your affiliate network contact.
