CANDLE AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Introducing the Hat Creek Candle Company Affiliate Program!
The new Hat Creek Candle Company affiliate program enables you to share your love of Hat Creek products with friends and family, and you'll earn 20% on everything you sell! The Hat Creek affiliate program has NO ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS, and you can even tell your friends about the affiliate program and earn 5% of the orders generated on their storefronts!
The affiliate software tracks all of your storefront orders. Twice per month, commissions are paid out when the commissions total reaches $40 ($200 in sales). It's that simple. You'll earn commissions on ALL of the orders you generate – no activity level required! You'll also have your own portal into the affiliate system that will allow you to see the orders placed, and earned commissions.
Your Website or Ours!
New affiliates currently hosting their own website or daily blog, etc. can sign up for no charge. New affiliates that do not currently have a website in place can sign up for their own Hat Creek Storefront.
Hat Creek Storefronts look very similar to our retail website and feature all of the products we offer online.
If you would like to sign up for your own Hat Creek Storefront, there is a nominal $15 activation fee and a $5 monthly maintenance fee. Your custom website address will be http://yourname.hatcreekcandle.com .
