Instructions for Affiliate Features
Update December 2022
We have recently improved the Creatives / Branding resources section for all affiliates. We will update this tutorial video soon to reflect these changes. For now you may click “Branding Resources” at the top of this page to view the entire Affiliate Asset Library.
Announcements & Updates
Your monthly affiliate payouts will now be made in the billing cycle at least 30 days after the initial purchase, to account for our site-wide refund policy and sales tax requirements.
April Commissions will still be paid out within the first ten days of May. However, beginning with May Commissions, this new policy will go into effect.
This means for any referrals from purchases made in May, the affiliate payout will be made available in the first ten days of July, giving at least 30 days difference between the customer purchase and affiliate payout.
This means that no affiliate will receive any payments during the month of June while we complete this transition. Once this initial transition is complete, you will then resume monthly payments of your affiliate commissions.
Updated Schedule for Affiliate Payouts
Here is a list of expected payout times based on your referral sales
April Sales – Payout May 1st – 10th
No payout in June
May Sales – Payout July 1st – 10th
June Sales – Payout August 1st – 10th
July Sales – Payout September 1st – 10th
We apologize for any inconvenience. Beginning in July you should receive monthly payments without further delay. Thank you for your understanding.
We have improved the way to view and download approved media assets and branding resources for your affiliate marketing. Additional graphics, shareable resources, and design elements will be added over time into the Affiliate Asset Library. To view these assets please click the new tab at the top of this page for Branding Resources. We will be updating the FAQ & Tutorial Videos to reflect these new features in the coming weeks.
We are also developing and testing new alternatives to “cookie-based Affiliate Tracking” to help create additional options for our affiliates to ensure they get commissions based on their referral sales. We will share updates as this process evolves in 2023.
Affiliate Commission for each referral sale will be increased from 20% to 30%. There may be some old documentation and tutorial videos that will have the outdated 20% figure listed. Please note than all affiliate commissions are now active at 30%. a) From May 1st 2022, we are going to use Gene Keys Limited as the company that will be operating the website and this includes our affiliate programme. This company is owned 100% by Gene Keys Publishing Limited and is the company you are currently an affiliate with. The reason for this change is purely corporate. It will keep our publishing operations separate from our online courses and events.
Richard Rudd & the Gene Keys team feel the best way to get the teachings out far and wide is to support our growing Guides community as much as we can. To support this mission, from April 1st 2023, only Guides will be able to be an affiliate. Please watch Richard’s video message, specifically to affiliates, to explain the reasons behind this transition and to invite you deeper into a collaborative relationship with the Gene Keys. https://genekeys.com/h/affiliate-changes/
Frequently Asked Questions
Due to privacy laws we must follow, we cannot reveal the names of customers making purchases to Affiliates. However, if you are inquiring about a particular customer and provide the name in your inquiry, we can check on purchases and determine whether a referral was made or not.
We have so many Affiliates now that it is no longer practical to offer that option any more; customers reported being confused on how to use it. Now the only way Affiliates can earn referrals is to have their customers use your link with your ID number.
We do a payout of earned referrals at the beginning of each calendar month, no later than the 7th of the month, and total referrals of $10 or more are paid by PayPal. If your total referral for any month is less than $10 (that would only be from audio sales), the referrals will not be paid – we no longer roll over the amounts from month to month.
