Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications
Once you have signed up for the Program, you will be assigned a unique Affiliate Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to Golden Leash Pet Products™. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won’t change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the Golden Leash Pet Products™. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the Golden Leash Pet Products™ properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the Golden Leash Pet Products™ placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Special Links.” You will earn referral fees only with respect to sales on a Golden Leash Pet Products™ product occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
Affiliate links should point to the page of the product being promoted.
Commissions / Referral fees and payment
Affiliates earn 15% of each sale per customer. Affiliates may earn 5% on top of another Affiliate’s sale when they sign up as an Affiliate with your link.
For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through using the Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to https://goldenleashpetproducts.com and complete an order for a product during that session.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they purchased or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems.
We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
Identifying yourself as a Golden Leash Pet Products™ Affiliate
You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship with Golden Leash Pet Products™. You cannot state that you develop Golden Leash Pet Products™ products.

You may not purchase products through your affiliate links for your own use. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement.
Payments begin once an Affiliate has earned more than $20 in Affiliate income. If your account never crosses the $20 threshold, your commissions will not be realized or paid until you earn more than $20 in sales. We are only responsible for paying accounts that have crossed the $20 threshold. As long as your current Affiliate earnings are over $20, you’ll be paid each month. If you haven’t earned $20 since your last payment, we’ll pay you in the month after you’ve crossed the threshold.
