The Everything5Pounds Affiliates Program offers eligible affiliates, including blogs and other third party websites (collectively, “Affiliates”), the opportunity to earn commissions on qualifying sales that originate from links to the Everything5Pounds website on an Affiliate’s site.
Eligibility for Everything5Pounds Affiliates Program
Prospective affiliates must apply and be approved by Everything5Pounds in order to gain access to the Affiliates Program.
Affiliates are approved based on criteria such as site quality, site content, brand identity, and alignment with our values.
The following types of websites are prohibited from participating in the Affiliates Program:
- Sites using “pop-ups” or “pop-unders” (websites that launch “pop-up” or hidden windows on users’ browsers)
- Sites with content related to sexual, religious, political or other sensitive matters
Participation in the Affiliates Program may be limited to Affiliates located in certain countries and is void where prohibited by law. Everything5Pounds reserves the right to approve or reject any application to join the Affiliates Program for any reason.
Affiliates may leave the Affiliates Program and terminate this agreement at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Everything5Pounds reserves the right to remove Affiliates from the Affiliates Program and refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time.
Voucher Code Affiliates
Everything5Pounds asks that all voucher code affiliates adhere to the guidelines set by the Internet Advertising Bureau Marketing Council (IAB AMC). Full guidelines can be found here: http://www.iabuk.net/resources/standards-and-guidelines/online-voucher-codes
The terms and conditions of this affiliate program have been set to reflect these guidelines:
- Using "Click to Reveal" when there is no valid or current code present is not permitted for affiliate publishers, as well as using "Click to Reveal" to show any deals/offers/sales instead of vouchers and using "Click to Copy Code" where no valid code is available.
- Voucher code affiliates must clearly state the voucher offer that will be revealed before a user clicks to interact.
- A valid code or promotion is defined as a code that has been legitimately issued by Everything5Pounds for use by affiliates and not a code that has been issued to consumers directly. This code or promotion will have an activation date and where necessary a deactivation date. When a code has expired, it must be either removed or detailed as expired stated clearly in writing. The date of expiry must be clearly displayed on the affiliates website, so that the user can decide whether they still want to proceed and click the publisher's link.
- Under no circumstances are publishers allowed to surreptitiously use i-frames to set Affiliate Window cookies onto a user's computer.
- Voucher code directories must contain clear categorisation and separation between deals/offers/sales and discount codes.
- Any sales made through the affiliate program are overlooked by Everything5Pounds. On any occasion where a promotion code is used and the offer has not been communicated to affiliates to use, commission will be disqualified.
Affiliates that violate any of the following program restrictions may be suspended or removed from the Affiliates Program and may not receive commissions, in Everything5Pound's sole discretion:
