How is the sale tracked?
You place an affiliate link on your website which can be either a piece of text, (ie 'Shoes.co.uk'), or a banner from our bank of image links on AF. When a visitor to your site clicks on our link, we place a cookie on their computer. If the visitor places an order then AF match your affiliate id with the customer id the commission is automatically triggered and credited to your affiliate account on AF.
We will confirm commission within 7 days of the confirmed purchase but will only reverse commission where a fraudulent transaction has taken place. Whilst we use secure servers, Thawte and HSBC's secure CPI technology, it is inevitable that some fraud will take place so please understand this.
Linking to us/restrictions
We offer a simple html text link that you can vary if you wish and also a number of fully branded banners. We have always found that the best way is to sell our website is in context so for example, if you are selling Firetrap clothing then use a Firetrap or related link so that your visitors will actually be interested in what we have to offer.
If you as a company use any form of software to generate clicks or require clicks to be a condition of entry to your site or part of any competition or included in any bundled software issued by your company then we will cancel your membership and revoke all commissions immediately. Example: 180 solutions. We want visitors to your site to visit us because they are interested in buying from us and not because they have been sent to us unwittingly!
