Technical Questions

How do I create links?
Logging into your Velocity Micro Affiliate account will provide you access to the banners and buttons that we have created for use. Below each image is a window with the HTML code you need. Copy and paste that code into your website, and the image will appear on your page, along with the proper code to make sure you get credit for your referral.

Where should I place the links on my site?
We leave link placement entirely up to you. We do not require that you place the banner in any specific location. Keep in mind, however, that the more visible the button or banner is, the more likely you are to attract visitors and generate sales.

Can I use Velocity Micro content on my site?
You may use any content you find within your affiliate account login. You may not use any other content from Velocity Micro or www.velocitymicro.com without express written permission from affiliate [at] velocitymicro.com.


Payment Questions

How much can I earn?
There's no limit to how much money you can earn through the Velocity Micro Affiliate program. You get 3% of any sales referred through the image you place on your site. How much you earn depends on how many people you refer from your site.

How do I know how much I've earned?
Once you log in to your Velocity Micro Affiliate Account, you can view the number of clicks you've sent as well as your total sales.

Can I earn money on my own purchases?
No, sorry. That's cheating.

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.

How can I monitor my sales?
You can monitor your sales as often as you like by logging into your Velocity Micro Affiliate account.

How do I change my account information?
You can modify your information, including your website address, by logging into your Velocity Micro Affiliate account.

Who processes orders and handles customer service?
Velocity Micro takes care of each referred sale exactly the same as independent sales. You don't have to bother with any of the details; just place the banner on your site.

How will you know that the orders came from my site?
The code that you receive from our website (the code that you copy and paste into your website to display our image) contains your unique ID issued to you when we accept you into our program. This code ensures that you get credit for your referrals, so it's important that you don't edit or remove this code.
