Overview

Does it cost anything to become an affiliate?
No! There are never any costs to become an affiliate only commissions to be earned.

How does the Affiliate Program work?
You place an AntarcticConnection.com banner, button or text link on your Website, and we track your customer referrals when users follow those links to our site. Every month, we send you a check for commissions earned on all sales that were a result of customers following these links. It's that simple! See our Affiliate Program Agreement for all details.

What sort of an obligation am I under?
There are no obligations or time limits that you must be an affiliate for. You can elect to discontinue being an affiliate at any time. Simply write us of your termination request, we'll settle up your account and deactivate your affiliate status.

 

Tracking and Payment

How much will I be paid?
You will be paid commission each time a customer follows a link from your site to ours and makes a purchase. Currently we pay 10% for text, button or banner links, and 15% for full product links. If you use any combination of these we pay the higher commission for all referrals from you site.

How are orders tracked and credited to my account?
All links from your site to The AntarcticConnection will contain a "Special Tag" that we will provide so that every time a user comes to us via your site, we know to credit you when a purchase is made.

When will I be paid?
You will be paid quarterly, based on the calendar year. If your commission for any quarter is less than $25.00, the total amount will be carried to the next quarter. Once it passes $25.00, a check will be sent to you at the end of the subsequent quarter for the complete amount owed to you up until the end of that quarter.

Do I get credit for a customer that returns to AntarcticConnection.com after the original sale?
No! Commissions earned are only for the original purchase of a customer coming from your site to ours. If that same customer returns to our site and makes subsequent purchases you do not earn additional commissions.

Can I track commissions I've earned from day to day?
Yes! We offer a password-protected log-in area so that you can monitor commissions earned whenever you feel.

If I control more that one site, can I sign up those sites as well?
Yes! As long as the other sites meet our standards as described below. You may simply add the same "Special Tags" we provided you for your original site and referrals from other sites will be credited to your account as well.

Can I use the Affiliate Program for incentives and rewards for members or employees?
Unfortunately, the Affiliate Program is designed for smaller sites in order to provide an e-commerce solution. Although we sometimes utilize the Affiliate Program for larger sites, we commonly refer high performing affiliates to other departments within AntarcticConnection.com. Our Business Development or Corporate Sales Team can assist you in purchases for incentive and reward programs for employees and members.

 

Setting Up Links

How do I create links to AntarcticConnection.com?
Once your application is reviewed and your site is accepted into the Affiliate Program we will provide "Special Tags" to be used in your hyperlinks to our site. Your login area provides a selection of banners and buttons for you to choose from if you prefer more than a text link to us. You may provide as many links to our site as you wish. It's that simple. Even beginners can create links in just seconds!

How do I create product pages on my web site?
Once your application is reviewed and your site is accepted into the Affiliate Program we will provide you a user name and password to access the Affiliate Program Administration area. Within this area is a section dedicated exclusively to using our system to generate HTML product pages.

What is my responsibility as an AntarcticConnection.com affiliate?
You are responsible for posting and maintaining the hyperlinks from your site to ours, that's all.

What is AntarcticConnection.com's responsibility?
We will provide you with the tools and support you need to make the links to our site. You can contact us for further help by email or telephone (603-383-6282). Of course, we handle orders, ship products, bill customers, pay you for customer referrals, and manage Customer Service.

Can I use the AntarcticConnection.com name and logo on my site?
Yes. Users want to know they are buying from a company they can trust. When using the AntarcticConnection.com logo, please do not alter it in any way.

Can I change and update my links whenever I want?
Yes. You may want to change and update the links on your site when new links are available or to use ones created specifically for seasonal promotions (i.e., Christmas, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day).

 

The Bottom Line
We want to work with all types of websites, from large commercial sites to individual Web pages, and everything in between. Anyone may submit an application, and we review each and every potential affiliate website before accepting it into the network. We do reserve the right to refuse a site if it contains objectionable material, including pornography, explicit language or content, or support for violent groups.

If you have any questions at all don't hesitate to call us: 603-383-6282 or email manager@antarcticconnection.com
