Welcome to YITH. We are happy to welcome you into our Affiliate Program that allows you to generate an automatic income by simply advertising our products.
This program allows you making our products known to your users and lets you earn a commission corresponding to the agreed percentage of the price of the first purchase made by the user. The sum of money owed to you will be immediately credited to your own YITH account.
This text has to be held as an additional part of YIThemes General Terms and Conditions and everything defined in there has to be held as valid. In case of inconsistencies between the two, the Terms and Conditions of YITH Affiliate Program wil prevail.
Below in the text you will find explained details concerning how “Becoming an Affiliate” works, payments and further details concerning the Affiliate Program.
Definition of the terms
User, in these Terms and Conditions, is any subject browsing the Internet and coming to YITH website and to the Affiliate page.
By buyer we refer to any user that has made a purchase in our marketplace.
Affiliate is any person adhering to YITH Affiliate Program and subject to these Terms and Conditions. Any reference to you, your, yours has to be held as reference to the affiliate.
YITH is the author of this document and any reference in this document as we, us or our should be held as referred to YITH.
Becoming a YITH Affiliate
Here you will find how YITH Affiliate Program works.
For each user coming to our marketplace by means of a link or a banner that you have advertised you can earn a provision equal to the agreed percentage on the purchase price of the first product bought by that user.
From your personal page on YITH you will receive an affiliate link (or referral link) that will be automatically generated from your username. You can paste it on your website or use banners with that link and advertise it on your website.
Any of your users coming to our store by means of that link and purchasing any product in our store, will grant you a commission on the purchase.
The affiliate percentage for our products is set to 30% of the purchase. So, for example, if a user reaches us through your link and buys a product that costs 50€, your provision is 15€ (that is, 30% of the product purchase price).
Sharing of special products and promotions, such as YIThemes Club Subscription, does not generate any affiliate commissions.
An important section of the Terms and Conditions has to be devoted to cookies.
You should also remember that cookies are available for a three months time. If your users visit our marketplace, but they make a purchase only after this term, you cannot be entitled of the provision anymore.
Validity of right to provision
In order to be entitled to the provision, users that buy through your affiliate link must not be related to you or to your company.
In order to be entitled to the provision, users that reach our website shall neither have visited it before, nor have a YITH account.
Sharing of special products and promotions, such as YITH Club Subscription, does not generate any affiliate commissions.
“What happens if the buyer has come to YITH by following two different affiliate links, my affiliate link and another person’s one?”
If users come to our marketplace through more than one affiliate link, the first one they access is to be held as the only one deserving the provision. For example, if one of your users reaches our marketplace through your link first, then once again through the affiliate link of another person, and only then purchases, you will be the one entitled of the provision for that purchase.
“Why don’t I get commissions for sharing YIThemes Club Subscription with my affiliate link?? “
You do not get any commission because, as you can read in our Terms and Conditions of YIThemes Affiliate programme, this is a special product which does not entitle you to affiliate commissions.
In this section you will find how payments of the provisions will be made.
Each provision you earn will be credited to your YITH account, so you allow us to pay provisions to you and credit them to your account. You can require the payment of the credit in your YITH account as soon as you reach the minimum amount of 50€.
YITH keeps your earnings safe until you require payment. Unless we decide to pay your earnings before, they will be kept safe for you until we get a request for payment from you.
The moment we get the request for payment, you will receive the payment by the 15th of the month. If the 15th happens to be holiday, you will receive the payment the first following working day available. The moment you send the request, we will ask you to enter your correct data. This will automatically generate an invoice where the affiliate declares to receive the payment of the requested amount, so, please, make sure the information you enter is correct. Payments will be done through PayPal and any possible expense for payment will be charged to you.
Keeping your earnings
If for any reason we cannot pay your earnings, we will keep them safe, included the circumstances in which we do not have the correct payment data or we are not able to contact you using the contact data you gave us. We will keep your earnings safe also if you ask us to make the payment to a person or an institution and it cannot be done for any reason, whether for legal or banking restrictions.
Any time we make a payment as affiliate, we are not responsible for currency conversion of your earnings from Euros into your favourite currency, nor are we responsible for any possible conversion costs that your financial institution might apply.
If any of the purchases related to your affiliate earnings is subject to refund or chargeback, we can at our discretion withdraw also the concerned commission from your Affiliate earnings.
What do I need to be paid the provisions?
You need to reach the minimum threshold of 50€ in provisions and to have a PayPal account.
Will my earnings be paid automatically when I reach the minimum threshold of 50€?
No, they will be paid, after reaching of the minimum threshold of 50€, only if you make a payment request from this page in your YITH account.
