AFFILIATE PROGRAM FAQ

What is the SWANKY PAWS Affiliate Marketing Program and how does it work?

The Swanky Paws Affiliate Marketing Program is a service that allows participating websites and social media accounts to earn commission on sales referred to swankypaws.com.au using specially tracked links or discount codes. We provide you with custom links and/or banners that you can post on your website or socials. Then, when a visitor you refer to us makes a purchase, we keep track and give you a commission on the sale.

How do I sign up?

Simply sign up with our application form and once approved we will provide you with your discount code or affiliate link.

Is my website eligible to participate?

We accept applications from websites that are relevant to and best showcase our products and do not contain objectionable or offensive materials. We welcome all applications but reserve the right to refuse membership or revoke a membership at any time at our sole discretion. Partners that make a good fit include instagram dogs, bloggers, doggie daycares, dog walkers, trainers, veterinarians, retailers and more. We do not accept discounts, incentives or coupons websites.

Are there any fees?

There are no fees associated with the Swanky Paws Affiliate Marketing program. It is completely free to participate.

Can I become an affiliate if I live outside of Australia?

Yes. We accept affiliates from anywhere in the world. Please keep in mind that all commission payments are currently made in AUS dollars.

If I have multiple websites, do I need to apply separately for each?

No. You should apply once, list all of your websites on your application and advertise Swanky Paws on any of them once you are approved.

What is your commission rate?

We pay a 10% starting commission rate. Higher volume affiliates are eligible for higher commission levels at the sole discretion of Swanky Paws.

What is the average order size?

The average order size at swankypaws.com.au is around $100, and may much be higher during holiday season.

Is there a minimum annual threshold?

There is no minimum sales level required to remain in the program, but you will not receive each commission check until you earn at least $50 in commission.

I don‘t have a website. Can I still be a Swanky Paws affiliate?

Yes you can anytime a sale is made with your link or code you will earn commission but in order to do this you must command influence somewhere. For instance instagram dogs will put the code in their bio and on posts and draw a commission from the sales. Bloggers will include the affiliate link in blogs and draw commission from those sales and banners with links to their page.

But if you do not have a website or social media page (something that draws traffic/exposure) it means you need another source of exposure to your link to earn money from it. 

For eg if you are a working professional like a vet you can easily recommend the product to your customers where appropriate. It just takes a little extra effort. We will leave this up to your imagination but there is many more ways to gain exposure than just socials and website (for eg email marketing list).

Do I receive any discounts on Swanky Paws products since I’m an affiliate?

No, however we recommend you purchase your orders through your own links so you can earn commission on the sales. You are also free to utilize any of the coupon codes advertised on our website or in printed marketing collateral.

Can I use images from Swanky Paws on my websites?

All of the content on the Swanky Paws website is protected by copyright. You may use images and content from our website in the promotion of our products on your own website, however all images must be attributed and/or used in conjunction the sale of the product through the affiliate program. The images cannot be used in the general design of your website. If you have a special circumstance that requires the use of any photos, product images or content in a manner that is not consistent with the policy stated above, please contact us for written approval prior to the content’s use.

How do I know if my application has been received or if I have been accepted into the affiliate program?

If your application has been submitted correctly, you should receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder. Otherwise, you might not have finished the process correctly and you should resubmit your application. Once approved, you will receive a welcome email from the affiliate manager.

How do I create links to swankypaws.com.au?

When you add a banner or link to your website, it will be tagged with your unique link. The easiest way to create links is to visit the Swanky Paws Affiliate Page once you’ve been approved. There, you can browse through the different  banner links, or make a custom link to any page on the website. To create a banner link, click the banner or link that you want to display. The shortest code available is easiest to add to your site, use in email and use directly in a browser.

Am I obligated to place a certain number of links on my website?

There is no limit. We encourage you to use as many as necessary and appropriate to improve click-through and conversion rates. A creative banner along with a text link or Swanky Paws logo will likely improve effectiveness.

How does the affiliate program know when I should receive credit for an order?

Our system tracks a cookie that is automatically applied to the computer of a person who clicks on a banner or text link that has your affiliate ID number embedded within it. Each banner or link that you create is specifically tagged with your affiliate ID number, letting us know that you deserve commission on the sales you send our way. You can access all of these banners and links by logging in your Affiliate Account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available. These links can be used from any website, put directly into a browser or emailed out in the case of text links. You can test a link by copying and pasting it into your browser. If you are directed to the Swanky Paws homepage, the link is working. Do not copy and paste a landing page url from our website (i.e. www.swankypaws.com.au?SSAID=123456) and confuse it for an affiliate link, since it will not track properly. All affiliate links begin with “http://swankypaws.com.au?aff=123....

When and how do I get paid?

We will pay your monthly commission by either PayPal or direct deposit within a week of the following month. Your account needs to have a balance of $50 on more before the end of the month in order to receive a payment. Otherwise, it will continue to roll forward into the next month until the $50 minimum is reached and we can issue a payment.

What is your return days or cookie policy?

If a visitor comes to our websites from your website but does not purchase on that visit, you can still earn commission on sales from that customer if they return and make a purchase within 60 days. This works even if they navigate directly to the website on a return visit as long as they haven’t deleted their cookies.

Do I earn commission credits if someone clicks on a product on my site and then buys a different product?

Yes. You will receive full credit for any product that is purchased by a customer who clicks on your affiliate link across swankypaws.com.au

How do product returns affect my commission?

If a customer returns a product for a refund, or if credit card charges are reversed due to a dispute or credit card fraud, your account will be debited the commission. But don’t worry – we’ve built a great product and we expect extremely low return rates.
