Voucher Code Affiliates
All voucher code affilates are expected to adhere to the below:
In light of the recent developments regarding promotion of voucher codes on affiliate sites, boohoo asks that affiliates adhere to the new guidelines from the Internet Advertising Bureau Affiliate Marketing Council (IAB AMC). Therefore, the terms & conditions of this affiliate programme have been set to reflect these guidelines:
1. Using "Click to Reveal" when there is no valid or current code present is not permitted for affiliate publishers using "Click to Reveal" to show any deals / offers / sales instead of vouchers.
2. Voucher code affiliate publishers must clearly detail the voucher offer that will be revealed by the click.
3. A valid code or promotion is defined as a code that has been legitimately issued by Boohoo for use by affiliates and not a code that has been issued to consumers direct. This code or promotion will have an activation date and where necessary a deactivation date.
4. Voucher code directories must contain clear categorisation and separation between deals / offers / sales and discount codes.
5. Awin check all sales made through the affiliate programme; where a promotion code is used, and the offer has not been communicated to affiliates to use, commission will be disqualified.
Affiliates may not alter any of the creative or text links available through the Awin interface. Affiliates are also requested not to hardcode banners into their sites, so updates made to those through Awin may take immediate effect.
Anyone found infringing on these terms will receive a warning and may have commissions reversed. We reserve the right to withhold commission during this time. Continuous infringement of these terms will result in suspension.
Bespoke creative can be supplied on request please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for further help.
Affiliates may not put the Boohoo website into frames or use masked URLs.
The boohoo data feed with up-to-the-minute pricing information will be refreshed each day.
Affiliates are requested to make every effort to maintain boohoo’s most current pricing information in their promotions.
No affiliate is permitted to scrape the website.

2. Discount code / voucher code websites
As standard all voucher code use needs to comply with the official IAB guidelines which can be found here:
a. Publishers may only use discount codes which have been supplied to them by Awin on behalf of Boohoo. Please apply to Awin to obtain authorised codes for the Boohoo programme.
b. Publishers must not display made up / invented discount codes on their site(s) or display discount codes that were intended for use in other channels or for other online publishers.
c. Under no circumstances are publishers allowed to surreptitiously use i-frames to set Awin cookies onto a user’s computer.
d. Discount code publishers with websites that encourage users to “click here to reveal offer / code” thus setting an Awin cookie can only use this function if a voucher code exists for the Boohoo programme. If there is no voucher code available for the Boohoo programme publishers must not use this method, as it leads to a poor user experience for potential Boohoo customers and can cause customer service issues.
e. If a discount code has been issued to publishers and it has an expiry date the publisher must clearly display on its website(s) the expiry date of this discount so that the user can decide whether they want to go ahead and click the publisher’s link.
f. If publishers wish to maintain expired discount codes on their sites for search engine optimisation reasons, they must display clear notification to the user that the discount has expired. This notification must be located right next to the expired discount code. The font size must be no smaller than the site(s) body text and the colour used must contrast clearly with the background It is not acceptable for the notification to be displayed a significant distance from the expired code.
4. Email Marketing
a. All email marketing must be signed off by Boohoo and the account management team.
a. Publishers are allowed to deeplink to a chosen offer or category on the boohoo site.
