Welcome to thebgang.com!
We’re happy to count you in as a partner on making this world a better place, you’re officially a Bgangster 😉.
But we can’t skip the boring (but important) part, unfortunately… so here we go.
These following terms and conditions apply to individuals who are accessing or using the Program both as a merchant (“we” or “merchant”) and an affiliate (“you” or “affiliate”) who refers customers to use product or service from the merchant.
By participating in the Program, Affiliate agrees to use the Program in the manner specified in, and are bound by, these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions in their entirety, you are not authorized to register as an Affiliate or participate in the Program in any manner.
1. Approve or Reject of the Registration
We reserve the right to approve or reject ANY Affiliate Program Registration in our sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against us for the rejection of your Affiliate Program Registration.
2. Affiliate Links and Coupon
Affiliate link is automatically generated, but you can also generate an affiliate link for a specific product or collection. If a person clicks on someone else’s referral link and then later they click on yours, yours is the one that counts (a.k.a. the last referrer gets the commission).
Affiliate might or might not be assigned to one coupon code with details and usage clarified in the Dashboard. If you’re not assigned a branded coupon, then you’re not allowed to promote the coupon.
Affiliate may also advertise merchant website on online channels such as Facebook, Instagram,… or offline classified channel ads, magazines, and newspapers.
3. Commissions and payment
Refer any customer to make a purchase on our website, you will get a commission amount which is calculated based on Commission structure. Commission amount is dependent on order value and not including extra fees (tax, shipping cost,…).
The base commission is 20% for physical products (about 50% of the profit after fulfillment costs on our side), and 50% for digital products like our E-Books and courses.
These commissions can be negotiated and adjusted, so if you have any questions, do reach out to us.
For an Affiliate to receive a commission, you need to specify the payment details on Settings.
We use PayPal for payouts (set the right email en the settings page), and you will start receiving your payout 30 days after the order was placed, as this is the refund time customers have to change their mind.
You will see all your referrals under the referrals tab, along with their reference (order number), the amount, description (title of the product), the status and the date of the sale.
Currently, we don’t have a payment threshold, but this might be added due to the high PayPal fees.
Payments will only be sent for transactions that have been successfully completed. Transactions that result in chargebacks or refunds will not be paid out, the status will then be showed as “rejected”.
4. Marketing tool
We share promotion media such as banner, logo or specific collection promotion to you through the “Creatives” tab. You can download the media or get the HTML embed code in order to share on affiliate channels.
We use a cookie to track people who have clicked on your link, so they need to be using cookies for us to track them.
If a person doesn’t allow cookies or clears their cookies then we can’t track them so can’t pay earnings on that person’s activity.
To combat this, we also offer coupon codes, which if your audience use, will result in you earning a referral as well.
The cookies are valid for 60 days. The tracking day will start from the time a customer clicks on the affiliate’s link or use the coupon. Within the cookie time, every order made by this customer at merchant website will automatically result in commissions to the affiliate (There’s no need for the customer to click on the affiliate link then).
6. Removal from Referral Program
If an affiliate wishes to be removed from the affiliate program, they can do so by contacting: sebastian[at]thebgang[dot]com.
Go forward and refer!
We’re very glad you’ve made it to the end of this important document.
We wish you the very best. You can always re-visit these Affiliate Program terms and conditions in the future and if you have any questions please contact me [email protected] for support and questions.
Cool, you mean business 😉.
We’ve got two types of commisions:
Digital products – 50% commission
Eg. courses, ebooks…
Physical products – 20% commission
Eg. our tofu press. The costs on our side to deliver this product is a lot higher than digital products.
So, the better you promote, the more you earn.
60 days long after last click.
As we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee for our customers in case they change their mind, you will start receiving payments after 30 days.
We use PayPal for payouts, but are open to other methods, just email [email protected].
Yes, you will be able to get it in your account.
