Atayne Partner Marketing Program FAQs




How do I get started?

Once we receive your application, it will go through a thorough review process.  During the evaluation period, we'll visit your site and make sure it is an appropriate match for Atayne's Partner Program.

If you are approved for the program, you will be given detailed instructions on how to log in to your account area.  From there you will be able to access all the tools you need to get started.

How does Atayne's Partner Program work?
Atayne's Partner Program allows you to generate advertising fees by linking visitors from your website to Atayne.com. It's also an excellent way to enhance your site and offer more value to your customers.

If approved for the program, you will have access to an online password-protected reporting system providing detailed statistics for your site. By placing Atayne.com banners, buttons or promotional links within your website, proprietary e-newsletter, or opt-in e-mails, a visit to Atayne.com through your link resulting in a purchase will earn you a percentage of the sale. We take care of all the order fulfillment and customer service. We also keep track of your sales and send you a monthly payment via PayPal.

Why become an Atayne.com Partner Program Participant?
It's fun.  It's easy.  It's free. You'll make money!

You earn commissions and Atayne.com handles all the order fulfillment and customer service.

Plus, you will get to help spread the love for a new, start-up brand.

How is the Atayne.com program different from other affiliate programs?
Unlike most partner and affiliate programs, we manage our own relationships.  That means you work directly with Atayne and not some person in the middle.

In addition, depending on your success, you have the ability to earn commissions upwards of 25%.  This commission percentage is much higher than most programs.

Finally, you receive commission fees on all sales generated from your site for ninety (90) days following an initial visit.  This is 60 days longer than the standard time period of 30 days.

What are your criteria for partnership?
Any website can apply for the program: large or small, commercial or nonprofit associations. However, we do have a preference for websites dedicated to an active lifestyle and the environment. 

Atayne.com does reserve the right to refuse any applicant, particularly if the site contains objectionable material including pornography, explicit language or content, violence or discrimination. We do not accept sites that violate intellectual property rights.

Can I join if I have not launched my site yet?
No. In order to maintain the highest standards for partnerships it is very important that we see the content of your website in order to approve it for the Atayne Partnership Program.

My website is outside the U.S. Can I join?
Yes you can.  However, your site must be in English.  We are looking to expand the program to other languages in the very near future.

What about adult content within my site?
We do not accept applications from sites with adult content.

Does it cost anything?
No, it is absolutely FREE. There is no application fee and no minimum sales requirement. You can start earning right away.

How much will I be paid?
Most new participants will start around 10%.  As you refer more sales to Atayne.com, your commission percentage will increase.

When and how do I get paid?
Commission fees are paid on a monthly basis via PayPal.  You must have an account balance due of $25 to receive payment.  If your balance is under $25, it will roll over to the next month.

How are orders tracked and credited to my site?
By carefully following the instructions for collecting and placing links from your site to Atayne.com, you'll enable clear tracking of where each visitor comes from and who makes a purchase. We employ cookie technology for these purposes; links from your site contain your site's unique source ID. Every time a user comes to us via your links, we know to credit you when a customer purchase is made.

Do partners get paid for repeat visits?
Yes. You receive commission fees on all sales generated from your site for ninety (90) days following an initial visit. This includes visits directly to our website. As you build your brand and customer loyalty, a customer that uses your link will renew their cookie for another ninety (90) days.

Can I take orders on my site?
No. Our frequent product updates, promotional price changes and in-stock availability verification are all part of our integrated shopping environment. In order to ensure product availability tracking, reporting and superior customer service, we must host the transaction. We take care of the order, customer service and fulfillment so you can focus on your website and traffic development.

Do you have online reporting on how much money I'm earning and how my links are performing?
Yes. Once you have been accepted into the program, you will be given access to your online Partner Program Tracking and Reporting Interface. You will be able to view your earnings and traffic reports at any time. These reports not only show you what you earn, they also track other site performance indicators that will assist you in fine-tuning your participation and maximizing your income potential.

Do I earn commissions from my own purchases?
Yes. You can earn commissions on any purchases you make from visiting Atayne.com through your own site's Atayne Partner Program link.

What about product returns?
If a user returns a product for a refund, or if credit card charges are reversed due to a dispute or credit card fraud, your account will be debited for any commission earned on that transaction. If a product is returned in exchange for new merchandise, or if goods are lost or damaged and we ship replacement goods to the customer, your commissions will not be affected.

How do I get my links to Atayne.com?
It's easy. After you join the program you will be given a user name and password to access the Atayne Partner Program via iDevAffiliate. With this access, you will be able to collect and place your links in a matter of minutes. Simply choose the type of banner, button or text link and the area of the Atayne.com site you want to link. There are many options to choose from. All you need to do is cut and paste the link into your HTML editor.

What areas of Atayne.com can I link? Can I link to an individual product?
We have multiple ways to link to Atayne.com including our home page, category pages, and individual product pages. We provide you a selection of banners, buttons and text links to each of these areas.

Can I place links within my own opt-in newsletters or email?
Yes. This is an excellent way to provide highly targeted information and product offerings. You should realize much higher conversion rates resulting in increased revenues. We recommend using category-specific or product-specific links. Of course, you will follow accepted guidelines for responsible opt-in e-mail practices. We reserve the right and will respond swiftly to suspend our partnership and any links to those who abuse their opt-in e-mail members. We will not diminish our brand by association with spammers.

Can I use the Atayne trademark to promote my site?
Partners may not use the Atayne trademark for traffic generation or search engine registration techniques including, but not limited to, inclusion in meta tags or purchase of the Atayne trademark as a search term. The purpose of the relationship is to generate traffic to the Atayne site by leveraging the traffic generated by the participant's site through its normal advertising programs, brand awareness, value proposition, etc. Using Atayne's brand to generate traffic to a partner's site or redirecting traffic to another site is inconsistent with the basic purpose of this program.

Anything else I should know?
You will need to read the Atayne Partner Program Agreement and confirm your understanding of the terms and conditions in that document. You will find the entire contract between you and Atayne.com in the agreement.
