Take a look at what makes our affiliate program so rewarding.
To register as an affiliate you must have an active paid Echo Plugins extension license, that you own, and have used for 31+ days.
We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. Please note that the review process may take a few days – we know you are eager to join our team of affiliates, and we appreciate your patience!
If you’re approved, awesome! You’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote Echo Plugins via referral links. Check out your private Affiliate Area for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!
You’ll earn 30% affiliate commission* when a customer purchases a new Echo Plugins extension license using your referral link. The 30% is based on the total cart amount that a customer spends when referred through your link.
* Lifetime license has a 15% commission due to the license nature. Access Manager is excluded from referrals.
We pay out affiliate commissions in USD directly to your bank account or debit card in the first week of every month. As we have a 30-day money back guarantee, we only pay commissions that are older than 30 days. The minimum payout balance is $50.00, so you receive a decent chunk of cash when payouts come around. And there’s no maximum payout balance, so promote Echo Plugins as much as you like!
In order to receive a payout for your referrals, you must register your bank account or debit card with our payouts service.
We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address). We do not offer recurring referrals.
We offer Direct Link Tracking, so you can skip the referral link (e.g. ?ref=123 or /ref/123) when you link directly to our site from your https:// website. You can submit a direct link for your own website in the Settings tab of your Affiliate Area. We’ll review your direct link submission, and when it’s approved you’ll no longer need to use a referral link when linking to echoknowledgebase.com directly from your site! Awesome!
Note: Direct Link Tracking is only available if your site has an SSL certificate, and therefore the https:// protocol. We will only approve websites that are 100% owned by you.
By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from Echo Plugins These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the Echo Plugins affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote Echo Plugins. As an affiliate, you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won’t spam you, ever – promise!
We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):
The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.
When you apply to become an affiliate we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:
If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.
When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase an Echo Plugins extension(s), or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.
A referral won’t be awarded if:
Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $50.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.
We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:
Please don’t leave us! We encourage all of our affiliates to actively promote Echo Plugins to keep earning referrals. If we can help you come up with ideas on how to promote Echo Plugins, please let us know – we’re here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months. But we don’t even want to go there right now, right?! Let’s work together to help you start earning some cash!
How you promote Echo Plugins is reflected in the commission you earn. We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to Echo Plugins and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our team of affiliates blog about digital eCommerce and selling digital products, and mention Echo Plugins!
Here are a few examples of awesome promotional methods to earn more commission:
We love and back our product 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too. The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any fraudulent activity, which is something we take pretty seriously. We know you’ll understand. 🙂 But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.
Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads and using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.
If you’re unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us. 🙂
If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected and we may disable your affiliate account. We reserve the right to take this action and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs. We recommend using good promotional methods as described in this agreement to avoid any potential referral rejections and/or account deactivation!
