Terms & Conditions -- Setup Instructions
How our affiliate program works
You are not required to have your own web site to become an affiliate.
Once you have submitted your request to become an affiliate and we have granted you Affiliate Privileges you will have your own personal page which will display any html you wish in addition to a table containing all of your currently active listings on this site. You can modify your Affiliate Page with your own html by accessing your Account, clicking [my current information], then [edit my info] and entering your html into the Affiliate Page HTML text area.
Use your Affiliate Page to display a link back to your own website, list additional products, etc. The TranslationClassifieds Affiliate program only offers representation to sites which have been approved by the TranslationClassifieds site review administrator. Membership as a TranslationClassifieds Affiliate is exclusive and is only offered to professionally designed, content web sites. Not all web sites are accepted into our program. Those that are accepted enter into a business relationship with wedotranslation inc. and agree to the terms and conditions outlined herein.
Since you have a unique Affiliate Page URL (found on your Personal Information Page) you can email this link to friends and family or post this link on other websites, etc. When visitors click on your Affiliate Page Link they will be sent directly to this Affiliate Page.
NOTE: Remember that any images or links you place within this html will need to be "absolute" linked to their appropriate location on your own server. In other words, all links must contain the "full URL" (i.e. http://www.yourwebsite.com/images/yourimage.gif). "Relative" links will not work within this html (i.e. /images/yourimage.gif). Also, your html must include ONLY table tags and below. Meaning, no html, head, or title tags. Your html must start and end with table tags. Finally, do not use css class tags for your text properties. Use only font tags.

Affiliates who are ranked as "Top 30 Affiliates" for a given month will be eligible for 25% commissions. If you upgrade to Gold Member you will be eligible for 30% commissions. This status has to be maintained until the 15th day of the next month when a monthly update procedure is run. All affiliates are paid once a month. No cheques will be disbursed for an amount of less than $35 US. If the money owed to the affiliate is less than $35 US, the amount will be added to the next month's total.
