FAQ

How Does it Work?

As an affiliate member, you are essentially part of our sales team. For every person you refer to our site that makes a purchase, you get a commission. The more people you refer, the better chances you have of making more money.

How Do I Promote Bizzee Advertising?

There are a number of different ways you can promote our advertising. The most popular is by linking to our site with either a banner advertisement or a text link. We provide you with several examples and banner ads so it’s easy for you to get started right away.

How Quickly Can I Get Started?

It depends how fast you can type. Our short application only takes a minute to complete and you are instantly approved into our program. From within your affiliate account, you will have access to our library of banners which are embedded with your unique tracking code. That’s how we’ll be able to tell if a referral came from you or somebody else.

How Much Money Can I Make?

That’s an important question and the first question we ask too! Our affiliate payment program is one of the best out there today. We offer a two-tiered program which pays out 20% and 5% respectively. There is no limit in the amount you can earn each month. The harder you work to promote us, the better chances you have of making more money.

How Does The Two-Tiered Program Work?

Our two-tiered affiliate program rewards you on two different levels. As well as earning commissions on your sales (first-tier), you earn commissions on their sales (second-tier). For example, say person A sees a Bizzee advertising link on your website or business card. They click through it and purchase one of our advertisement/promotion for $499. You just earned a $99.80 commission (20%). Then person A goes and puts an affiliate banner on their site and refers a $499 sale, you make another $24.95 commission for doing absolutely nothing! See the potential?

So not only should you promote our memberships, you should also promote our affiliate program. The more affiliates you have, the greater your reach can be. Use Facebook, Twitter, paid search or other great ways to promote our site. There are some affiliates already making money each month by doing this today.

How Will I Know if I Earned a Commission?

You will instantly be notified via email when a sale has taken place. All you need to do is follow the steps below and then place banner or text ads on your website embedded with your affiliate id. It’s that easy and doesn’t cost anything to join! We even have free analytics so you can see how many click-thrus you’re generating.

How Do I Get Paid?

All affiliate payments are made via PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPal account, please sign up for one first. It usually takes a few days for them to verify your information. You also need to make sure your payment method and PayPal email address are correctly entered within your Bizzee affiliate account. Any account incorrectly setup will not be paid for that cycle.

When are Payouts Made?

At the end of each month, we run a report to see how many affiliate sales were made. Each transaction is manually audited due to an increase in affiliate fraud. Assuming your affiliate commissions are valid (see “I Made a Sale but didn’t get Paid” below), payments for the prior month will then be sent to your PayPal account by the end of the next month. For example, if you had three sales in September, you will be paid by October 31st.

Is there a Minimum Payout Threshold?

Yes. Once you accumulate at least a $100 balance, you will be paid out the following month. This watermark is in place to prevent affiliate fraud and abuse.

Can I Earn Commissions from My Own Purchases?

No. You will not receive credit when purchasing a membership through your own affiliate link. You may receive an automatic notification from us to let you know that a sale has taken place, but your affiliate payout will not include this amount. So don’t waste our time and try to be tricky by using another email address or some other clever method. It’s very easy for us to tell if someone purchased a membership through their own affiliate link. Bottom line: If there is any question about the legitimacy of the affiliate sale, you will not be paid.

How Long Does the Affiliate Referral Last For?

Whenever a visitor clicks through your affiliate link, a 180 cookie is set. If they make a purchase within those 180 days (and they don’t clear their cookies or click on a different affiliate link), you get credit for the sale.

How Does the Affiliate Cookie Work?

When someone clicks on your affiliate link, they are redirected to our website and a cookie is set (bizzee.member_aff_id) with your affiliate id. As long as they don’t clear their cookies or click on another affiliate link before checking out, the sale will be credited to you. What occasionally happens is a person clicks on your affiliate link, gets redirected to our website and before checking out, searches Google for a coupon code. If they find one and click on that link, chances are it contains someone else’s affiliate link which would replace yours. The last affiliate cookie that is set, is awarded the sale.

Can I use Paid Search to Promote Bizzee Advertisement Service?

Yes, but there are some limitations. We recommend advertising on sites such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Facebook as long as you stay within the following guidelines. You may not advertise on Bizzee brand-related keywords such as “Bizzee Memberships”, “Bizzee”, “Bizzee.net”, “Bizzee Reviews” or any other variation of the Bizzee brand. All affiliate sales generated during the month while advertising on Bizzee branded keywords will be nullified and commissions not paid out. There are many ways tp promote this service…Our favorite is email marketing

Can I Setup a Dedicated Website to Promote Bizzee?

Yes, but you may not use domain names with Bizzee brand-related keywords. You also may not mislead visitors with masked urls and/or inaccurate coupon codes (click me for 40% off) links. These sort of websites are not only against our affiliate terms, but also likely viewed by Google as link schemes. Any affiliate sales made via these dedicated Bizzee brand-related keyword sites and/or misleading coupon codes will be voided out and not paid.

I Made a Sale but didn’t get Paid

If you made a sale but never received payment for it, chances are it was either voided based on our audit or your affiliate account is incomplete. We must have a minimum of your full name, email address, country, completed tax form on file, and your “Payout Method” set on the “Payout Details” page. If we suspect a fraudulent affiliate sale, the commission will not be paid out and the affiliate runs the risk of losing their affiliate account. If you forgot to set your “Payout Method” and commissions have already been paid for that month, you will get paid the following month instead. We occasionally do make mistakes so if you have a valid case, please send our support team a message including the details of your transaction. Unpaid transactions older than 60 days cannot be disputed.

Why do I need to Submit a Tax Form?
Being a US company, we are legally required to collect either a W-9 (US affiliate) or a W-8BEN (non-US affiliate) before any affiliate commissions are paid out. You don’t need to have a tax form on file to activate and promote our memberships, however you will before any affiliate commissions are paid to you. The good news is you only have to do it once and it takes less than 5 minutes to complete. It’s paperless and can be digitally signed too. No hassle of having to fill out, print, sign it, scan, and send back. Oh, and did we mention it saves trees?

Here’s how it works. If you made $500 or more for the current year, we will file a 1099-MISC which includes your affiliate earnings. Without this form on file, we are unable to process your affiliate commissions, however you will continue to accumulate any sales in the meantime. Please be aware that if you fail to submit a completed tax form before December 31 (of the current year), you will forfeit all affiliate commissions earned during that year. If you have not yet submitted your tax form to us, please login to your affiliate account and then click on “Payout Details” for instructions on how to proceed.

I Made a Sale but now it’s Showing up as a Credit

This usually means a purchase of one of our memberships was reversed due to a fraudulent transaction. Our payment gateway automatically refunds the money which means the commission you earned gets returned as well. We know, it sucks and we both lose out. It could also mean that the affiliate sale was reversed because it was not made following our affiliate guidelines.

Promotion Ideas
The great thing about affiliate programs is you can be as creative as you like. Most people take the easy route which is just placing affiliate banners on their site and hope someone will eventually click on it. While this is fine, it’s not always the most effective method. Let us give you some insider marketing advice which we’ve learned from our years of online affiliate experience.

Take a two-prong approach when promoting Bizzee. Use banners on your site but also leverage the power of a blog post. Writing a review about Bizzee will not only get more traffic to your site but it’s 10 times more likely to generate an affiliate sale. Why? Because people are searching the web looking for product reviews before buying products. They are already in buying mode and if your review convinces them enough, they will click on YOUR affiliate link to buy Bizzee Membership. Of course make your reviews honest and tell them why you love Bizzee so much.

Legal
Bizzee.net reserves the right to decline payments, suspend accounts, and/or terminate any affiliate user account without notice. This may be due to one or several of the following reasons: 1) providing false and/or misleading information about Bizzee membership discount codes or specials) running paid search engine marketing campaigns (i.e. AdWords) on Bizzee brand-related keywords mentioned above 3) using link farms, spamming forums/websites, and/or taking part in any illicit acts to drive traffic towards your affiliate links. Any terminated affiliate with pending payments for the current month will not be distributed. All decisions are final and accounts terminated or suspended will not be reversed.
