How do you know sales are coming from my website?

Our affiliate program uses cookies to track sales generated by your affiliate link. In order for our system to track this information properly, the following conditions should be met:

  • Cookies must be enabled in the browser’s settings before your referral follows the link.
  • Cookies must not be cleared before a purchase is made by your referral.
  • Your referral should use the same browser to sign up for an account and to make a purchase.

Are there any time limits set on commission if someone who clicks the affiliate link doesn’t make a purchase right away?

The customer should make the purchase within 30 days of first following your affiliate link. Otherwise, you will not receive commission for the purchase.

What happens if a referral gets a refund?

Your commission for a sale will be removed if:

  • A referral gets a refund for a product
  • An order is canceled for any reason 
  • An order is found to be fraudulent

Do I get paid if I buy any products for myself?

Commissions are paid only for referring new customers. So, if you’re not a customer yet, your first order at will be considered to be an order from a new customer 😉

If you have clients and you want to buy SSLs for them, such orders will not be considered to be affiliate purchases. For such cases, you will need to participate in our reseller program.

To work as an affiliate, you will need to refer your clients to buy SSLs from on their own as opposed to you buying items for them.

Will I need to pay tax on my earnings?

Yes. Impact Radius, our affiliate partner, will send you the relevant taxation paperwork for the payouts you receive from them.

Can people I refer see my username?

Your referrals will only see your Affiliate ID number. Your (or affiliate) username will not appear in the link or the referrals’ accounts.

You can exclusively use the affiliate banners provided by us, which are available in your affiliate account.
