Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions govern your participation in TemplateMonster’s Affiliate Program. Every partner is required to get familiar with the following information and fulfill each point.

1. Program Overview

The affiliate program is an instrument that allows specific web users groups to get their passive income. These include bloggers, YouTubers, freelancers, web-studios, and other related companies. In other words, all the people who are engaged in promoting different business projects will find the program useful. As a result, one starts earning money by promoting his or her affiliate ID.

The affiliate ID is a specific URL including the unique referral ID. Due to it, the program tracks the traffic and sales. The referral link is a specific URL including the individual affiliate ID. It has the following structure: https://www.templatemonster.com/?aff=affiliate, where affiliate will be your referral ID.

Keep in mind that the affiliate program works for two projects: TemplateMonster and MonsterONE.

2. Enrollment in the Program

To join the affiliate program, one needs to go through the registration process. It is necessary to share personal information, some additional information, and payout methods. 

After this, the partner gets access to the affiliate panel. It is powered by Post Affiliate Pro

This service makes it possible to keep track of traffic, sales statistics, send payout requests, get available promotional tools, as well as find answers to the frequently asked questions. 

Cookies are valid for 60 days. In other words, the customer needs to purchase our digital item or service within 60 days after the initial click-through. In addition to this, the program follows the “first cookie wins” model. It means that the customer links to the affiliate whose link he or she has clicked for the first time.

Please mind that when a customer visits templatemonster.com without using affiliate cookies, he is assigned cookies from the TemplateMonster marketplace. Even after a customer places an order using an affiliate link afterward, the purchase won’t count as an affiliate sale because the customer already visited TemplateMonster marketplace before.

TemplateMonster and MonsterONE use the same cookies. In the future, cookies policy may undergo some changes.

2.1 Promotional Instruments

Every affiliate can take advantage of various promotional instruments in their promotional campaign. These include not only links, but also banners, articles, showcases, ready-made videos, updates of existing posts, social media posts, pop-ups, and hello-bars.

2.2. Ready-Made Shop (RMS)

Besides signing up to the TemplateMonster affiliate program, you can also install an RMS theme on your website and sell products from the marketplace under the white label agreement. RMS is a different type of partnership. Whenever a customer buys a web design asset on your site, he/she is not redirected anywhere. The order is completed on your site, without a customer knowing that the chosen item was released in the marketplace. An affiliate partner earns a 30% commission from every order users place on your shop (it includes the first and all consecutive orders placed on your site).

If you need more details about RMS or have any questions, feel free to send your queries to alise@templatemonster.me  

3. Program Commission

The affiliate gets 30% commissions from all new visitors referred sales. Please mind that affiliates do not receive commissions for the sales made by our loyal and returning clients. When it comes to referred affiliates (or sub-affiliates), one gets a 5% commission.

You are not allowed to register yourself as a sub-affiliate. In case one attempts to do this, we have the right to end the affiliate membership, stop his other affiliate accounts, and withhold all his unpaid commissions.

Please mind:

  • The TemplateMonster affiliate program doesn’t cooperate with CPA networks AT ALL.
  • The marketplace sets custom affiliate terms for every coupon site we work with. Affiliate program managers create custom codes for every coupon site that was approved. To get a coupon code, please contact your manager. 

4. Referral Fees Payouts

When affiliate partners send commission withdrawal requests, they should verify personal details within 10 business days. Otherwise, their accounts will be disabled.

The minimum payout amount that can be transferred is $100. The available commission payout methods are PayPal, Bank/Wire Transfer, and WebMoney. It takes up to 5-10 business days after the request to process the commission. In case we need to verify some important details or check the affiliate for the illegal activity, it might take a little bit longer. We can postpone the payment if the applicant does not respond through the communication means specified in the profile. If the applicant cannot explain his or her promotional activity and prove them to be legitimate, we have the right to block the money requests. If the sum exceeds the minimum transfer of $100, one can get the money via PayPal or WebMoney. One will get the commission within 5-10 business days after the request if the money sum exceeds the minimum amount  of $500 for Wire Transfer payments .

When the partner requests a payout for the first time, he or she needs to go through the personal details verification process. It is possible to confirm the personal information using any identity document copy (the passport, driver’s license, or another document).

4.1. Commission Withdrawal Options

There are 2 commission withdrawal options available to TemplateMonster affiliates:

  • regular payments, which an affiliate partner receives monthly as soon as the minimum withdrawal amount is earned;
  • manual – payments that are sent upon an affiliate’s request.  

When new members sign up to the affiliate program, they have the freedom to choose between two commission withdrawal options. It’s set as default settings that TemplateMonster affiliates will receive regular payments once a month. If an affiliate wants to request payments manually, he needs to disable regular payments in the affiliate panel.

Regular payments are sent from the 15th to the 20th day of each month. On the 15th day of the month, the previous month’s commission will be changed. For example, on February 15, an affiliate will receive changes for all orders that were placed in January.

Manual payments submitted upon an affiliate’s request will be sent from the 20th to 25th day of the month every month. An affiliate can send a commission withdrawal request up to the 20th day of each month, inclusively.

5. Affiliate Obligations

TemplateMonster reserves the right to block accounts that stay inactive for 6 months or more. It relates to a customer, author, and affiliate accounts.

We can deactivate an account if an affiliate partner stays inactive for a year (meaning they neither logged in to the admin panel nor generated traffic or sales.)

If the affiliate partner violates the rules of the affiliate program (e.g., uses branded keywords in their promo campaigns), TemplateMonster can disable affiliate account and discharge their commissions.

All information provided in your affiliate account must be real. Furthermore, you can create only one affiliate account. One needs to be ready to verify hisy personal info at any time. The partner might need to show one or more official government or legal documents to confirm his or her identity. These include the passport, driver’s license, national ID card, or other legal document copies. If one fails to provide the required information, we have the right to terminate the account and withhold all the unpaid commissions.
