PAINTLINE AFFILIATE FAQ
Our PaintLine Affiliate Program is fairly exclusive since we do not want to over-saturate the market (this helps boost sales for our current Affiliates). So no, not everyone who applies will be approved, although we appreciate your time and efforts regardless of the outcome!
When you apply to become a PaintLine Affiliate, we ask that you provide your social media platforms so that we can analyze your following, growth track, engagement, post style, post frequency, and other general analytics in order to ensure that our partnership would be beneficial to both parties.
We pride ourselves on our customer service and ability to answer inquiries quickly. We will get back to you within 48 business hours, but it never hurts to reach out if you have any questions in the mean time! You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments, or concerns about your application or Refersion discount/link.
There are 3 ways you can get paid. You can select your method of payment on your Refersion dashboard or by emailing email@example.com.
1) PayPal Payouts: This is the recommended payment method. Refersion integrates with PayPal Payouts to easily receive weekly payouts. To set up a Business PayPal, you may find instructions here.
2) Gift Card via Email: We will send you an email with the gift card you create and manually mark you as paid in Refersion so your reporting is accurate.
3) Manual Payment: You can receive payments outside of Refersion (wire transfer, check, Venmo, etc.) and we will manually mark them as paid in Refersion so your reporting is accurate.
Don't worry, you do not have to reach any sales quota to stay an Affiliate for PaintLine. Although of course the more sales you make, the more commission you receive!
Nope! You can post as much or as little about PaintLine as you wish. Although. posting more frequently about a product that you use and love can drive your sales which leads to higher commission payouts. You can also post on any social media platform, blog, your website, email marketing, etc. Try different things and see what works!
Our products are very popular so we do tend to run out of inventory occasionally. If a product is only available for pre-order, you are still free to advertise or write about that product. Once a customer adds the pre-order to their cart and submits payment, you will receive a commission as if it were a regular sale. Then, the customer just waits for us to get the item back in stock and we send it to them. We handle all the customer service, and you still receive that commission in your weekly payout!
We find that Affiliates who use our products on a daily basis and post frequently about them on social media have the highest sales! Try using a PaintLine product yourself and post a review on Facebook, go Live on Instagram to show your work in real-time, or write a blog post about your experience. You can also try sending your Affiliate link/discount code to your followers through direct messaging or email. And don't forget about in-person marketing -- be sure to spread the word by mouth!
It also helps to track what works and what doesn't work. Try something new and if it generates sales, then great! Keep doing that. If not, then try something different! But recording and documenting your efforts can help lead to more organization, sales, and success. Plus, there are no deadlines or quotas to worry about and we are always here to help.
Yes! You are able to use and share your discount code/link at will. By using your own code, you would receive both the customer discount as well as your commission payment, so overall you'd receive the highest "discount" possible! This is a great way to try a variety of our products so that you can become more familiar with PaintLine and share even more feedback with your audience.
We are not accountants, so please be sure to consult your financial advisor. In most cases, commissions would be treated as taxable income.
