Brainfiller Global Affiliate Network Terms and Conditions

Affiliate Agreement
This is important stuff so grab a cup of coffee and please read the whole thing as it outlines how the Brainfiller Global Affiliate Network works.

We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. The review process may take a few days so we appreciate your patience – we know you are eager to join our global network and we are equally excited to have you on board.

Once approved, you will be provided with login information where you can visit your private affiliate area.  It is here you can view your referral and commission information as well as find creatives such as banners and more!

Commissions and payouts
You’ll earn 15% commission when a customer purchases any Scheduled Brainfiller training class and/or On Demand classes using your referral link.  This includes both individual purchases as well as group purchases as illustrated in the examples below. 

Commission Examples:

Example 1: Single Purchase – Scheduled Class
One Week Power System Engineering Class
Purchase Cost: $1495.00
Your Take:  15% of $1495.00 = $ 224.25

Example 2: Group Purchase – Scheduled Class
Companies that register larger groups, receive discounts.  Your commission is based on the net sale.

Let’s say a company registers 4 people together, they receive a 25% group discount and you receive 15% of the net.

Purchase cost: 4 people x $1495 = $5960.00
Cost to purchaser with 25% Group Discount = $4485.00
Your take: 15% = $672.75

 SERIOUSLY??  That kind of cash for just being an affiliate and promoting Brainfiller?

Yep, that’s the idea!

The 15% commission applies to both Live Scheduled classes as well as our On Demand classes!

Affiliate commissions are paid in US Dollars directly to your bank account.

 Commission Payment – On Demand Classes: Commissions for on demand classes are paid during the first week of the month for transactions made two months back.

Example – On Demand Class:
Commissions earned in March will be paid during first week of May.

Commission Payment – Live Scheduled Classes:  Commissions for Live Scheduled Classes are paid during the first week of the month following the last date the class is held.  This is due to the rare but possible case of a person canceling their registration prior to the class date.  Online cancellation process so it’s tracked in the affiliate backend.

Example – Live Scheduled Class:
A sale is made in March for a class that is scheduled for July 17-18.  The commission is paid during the first week of August.

Due to fixed bank transfer fees, the minimum payout balance is $50.00. There isn’t a maximum payout balance, so the sky is the limit – challenge how high the sky is!

Banking Information
In order to receive a payout for your referrals, you must register your banking information as part of finalizing becoming an affiliate. This information will be requested after your application has been accepted.

We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases. Need language about people that go directly to Brainfiller after the first referral.  Sales made direct without affiliate do not earn the affiliate commission.

Here is a summary of the Brainfiller Global Affiliate Network:

  • You must have a website related to the industry
  • You’ll receive 15% commission for every new sale you refer
  • Minimum payout balance of $50.00, and no maximum payout (we pay in USD)
  • Commissions are paid based on the terms listed above.
  • Referrals are paid out to your bank account based on information on file.
  • Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address).

Referral cookie lifetime

  • 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 a Brainfiller class, ask any questions they may have or seek approval. (team – longer?) Updated language that address the no longer tracking cookies. GDPR and Apple updates.

A referral won’t be credited if:
The customer uses a different browser to make the purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)

Refunded purchases
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). Although rare, if a person cancels their registration for a live class prior to the class beginning, 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:

  • The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  • The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.
