Q: What is this affiliate program about?
A: It's simple. Each approved ambassador obtains two unique codes to track sales: 1. A discount code for in-person word of mouth (especially great for yoga teachers)
2. A unique affiliate link to our online store for digital referrals.
You will share this link or discount code with your friends/ family/ followers/ students and for each successful purchase from your link or from the discount code, you get a 10% referral fee (commission). There is no catch, no upfront investment. All you need is a PayPal account to receive your payments.
Please note: It benefits our ambassadors a lot more when promoting the link digitally over the discount code! Since we have a 90 day cookie, if someone clicks on your unique link and doesn't purchase at the time, you still have a high chance to earn commission when they come back through an advertisement or other.
Q: How much can I expect to earn from this affiliate program?
A: That depends on you. We do not have any caps on commission, so you get 10% commission from every sale you make! Our retail price differs, but with a high ticketed item such as our yoga mat, you can earn around $7-10 per sale.
Q: How will I get paid?
A: At this moment we require all our affiliates to have a Paypal account to receive payments. If you do not have a Paypal account, sign up on their website, it's free: www.paypal.com
Q: Can I use my own affiliate link for a personal purchase so that I can get 10% cashback for myself?
A: No, personal purchases do not count for commission. But good news! Each approved affiliate marketer can get 20% off the entire store & occasional free perks, so you can shop and buy the things you like and take pictures.
Q: Will I get free products?
A: We gift products occasionally to our VIP ambassadors. To become VIP you have to reach at least 15 paid orders from your link or code.
Q: How can I promote my affiliate link?
A: You can tell your own community in personal events or use social media like Facebook/ YouTube/ Twitter/ Pinterest/ Instagram/ Snapchat etc. We do not restrict how affiliate promote their links, as long as it is legal! Just make sure to share the proper affiliate link, this is the only way we can track your traffic. We occasionally will send emails about some tips & tricks on how to generate more sales when you are on our "OM-bassador email list"
Terms and Conditions
Payments are in USD, and all information below is in our default USD currency. We require a Paypal account from all our affiliate. As you know, Paypal charges a fee to the sender (us, not you) which we will gladly absorb. In order for us to absorb the cost of Paypal fees ourselves, we require that each account has a minimum of $20 to be eligible for a withdrawal. In case your balance is less than $20 and you still wish to withdraw your balance, we will then charge a processing fee of $3.
We usually start processing payments the beginning of every month (Between 1st - 3rd). Payments processing and approval usually takes between 2-3 business days, and upon approval your balance will be instantly available in you Paypal account.
Affiliates have the choice to request accumulation to the amount of their choice before requesting a withdrawal. We encourage all affiliates to accumulate at least $20 and wait for our usual processing window to avoid any processing fees.
For each successful sale made from your affiliate link, 10% of the purchase amount will be credited to your account. There is no cap on the commission you can earn. Commission is calculated on final sale price only; excluding shipping and excluding any discount code used by the customer.
Example. An item cost $80 and $8 for shipping. Customer has a discount code of $5 off. The commission earning will then be 10% of $75 ($80 sale price - $5 discount, shipping is not included), which is a $7.5 commission.
Tracking & Transparency:
Each affiliate can track the number of views/sales generated from his/her unique link through our Affiliate platform. Views can only be seen through the affiliate's unique link. Sales will be seen if referral uses either code or link. In order to track properly, make sure your referral uses your unique affiliate link or unique discount code.
Cookie period validity:
Our cookie is valid for 90 days! This means that after clicking the referral link, a purchase needs to be confirmed in the next 90 days. The customer does not have to click on the original affiliate link as long as 90 days have not passed, the sale will still be registered under the affiliate. If 90 days has passed and no purchase is made, the cookie will expire and only a new click from the affiliate link will reactivate the cookie for another 90 days.
From time to time, incentives (bonus) and free items would be given to our best performing affiliates. Our best performing affiliates are considered VIP when they have reached at least 15 paid orders. Such an event will be notified to you through email as well as the corresponding terms and conditions.
The beauty of this affiliate marketing is that there is no pressure to acquire any sales. However, we approve you as an affiliate as we see the passion you also have for Scoria and spreading the word for us is really valuable for a company like ours. If an affiliate has not been active for 6 months (no sales or link views) we will notify the affiliate and let them know to ask if they want to keep the account. In case of keeping the account and there is no sale generated within 2 months then we will notify the affiliate that we will suspend the account, just to make more room in our system for more affiliates
If your account has been suspended and wish to join our program again (maybe we added lots more products you are interested in sharing with your followers), drop us an email and tell us about how you plan to be active

NOT to do:
- Please, do not spam. If you are in a Facebook group, read guidelines in the platform or page you are using before posting the link everywhere.
- Please do NOT advertise with the impersonation that you are the company itself! Be clear with your messaging and be transparent, it is okay to mention that the link you are putting out is an affiliate link, people will possibly even support and buy from your link, it is also great when you share your opinion about the product genuinely and tell others about your experience with the product, while also providing the link
