What is the FreeCharge Affiliate Program?
The FreeCharge Affiliate Program is a way for you to earn commissions by placing banner ads or text links on your website or social media to refer customers to Freecharge.us. You’ll earn money every time a visitor follows a Freecharge.us link on your Web site and then completes a qualifying purchase at Freecharge.us
How does it work?
FreeCharge affiliates get one simple interface to track all their sales, impressions, click-throughs and commissions. Access to site information is password protected. FreeCharge does not collect or track any customer information that may be sensitive, such as credit card numbers or private data.
We provide you with professionally designed banners and a set of useful text links in our bi-weekly newsletter. We also provide you access to archived banners and newsletters for a wide selection of items to place on your site. In addition, you can generate specific text links to anything on FreeCharge.us, any time you want. Place these banners and/or text links on your Web site to let your visitors know about our products and services. When your visitors follow the links and banners to our site and then complete a qualifying purchase, your account is credited with a commission.
You do not need a Freecharge.us affiliate account to access banners and text links.
How long do the cookies last?
Our cookies last up to 30 days. Compare that to Amazon or Walmart’s that last only 1 – 3 days.
Why should I join the FreeCharge.us Affiliate Program?
As an affiliate, you can offer your visitors access to the excellent solutions at freecharge.us. Compared to online retailers, these are usually very high dollar purchases – resulting in relatively much larger commissions. And every time your visitors follow a link from your Web site to freecharge.us and complete a qualifying purchase, you’ll receive a commission.
Does it cost anything to become a Freecharge.us affiliate?
No. It is absolutely free to join the Frecharge.us Affiliate Program. Once you are approved, you can get started right away!
What is included in the affiliate membership?
You’ll receive our regular newsletters with banners, links and information about great products and services to feature on your site or social media posts. You’ll also receive access to the Affiliate Member Center, where you can get more banners, generate links and get data feeds to further customize your Freecharge.us referrals to your visitors. You’ll also have the support of the Freecharge.us Affiliate account team members, and all the great tools our partner Affiliate program and partners provide. We make it as easy as possible for you to get the most out of the program.
Is my website eligible?
We review each application carefully and determine eligibility at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to reject or remove sites at any time, for any reason. To learn more about the criteria we use in evaluating potential affiliates, please read the affiliate agreement located here.
How much can I earn?
Affiliates can earn up to 4% on each eligible sale when a customer links directly from a Freecharge.us link on your website and completes a qualifying purchase at FreeCharge.us. Commission rates are as follows:
- 4% for one (1) Freecharge station.
- 3% for order of two-ten (2-10) stations
- 2% for order of eleven (11) or more stations
Additionally, we occasionally hold sales contests and other opportunities throughout the year for more opportunities to earn commissions.
Why are referral fees so generous? Do you enjoy giving away money?
Quite simple really. We are a socially minded company. So instead of paying some giant advertisers, social media companies or search firms, we’d rather pay real people. Besides, the faster we can get our sustainable and resilient products into the world, the faster we can address climate change and make the world a better place. That helps everyone!
How are commissions paid?
Commissions are paid on monthly net sales, less any returns (which are almost never) and do not include sales tax or shipping and handling.
When do I get paid?
Once the product(s) are paid for or as sponsorship funds are received, you will be paid. You will know the status of your referral and the date of delivery or estimated deliveries (once we win the contract) from the handy Affiliate Area dashboard link provided at signup.
How do I keep track of my sales and commissions?
In the Affiliate Area, you can access daily reports that provide information on impressions, click-throughs, orders, sales and commissions earned.
What happens if a customer I referred returns a product?
In the rare event that a customer returns a product for a refund, or if credit card charges are reversed due to a dispute or credit card fraud, your account will be debited for any commission earned on that transaction.
What kind of links are available to use for my website?
Once approved as an affiliate, you’ll have access to a variety of links to feature on your website. The types of links include multiple sizes of banners and buttons, text links to category and item pages, as well as Dynamic Rich Media links.
Who is a good referral candidate?
Communications companies, transit agencies, federal, state and local governments, corporate campus owners, malls, sports and entertainment venues interested in enhanced public benefits and safety are all good candidates. Architects and large commercial or government builders that want unique solutions to make their clients’ campuses and cities safer and more resilient are also good candidates. Infrastructure companies and government security contractors are also good candidates.
Can I refer someone at my own employer?
Of course, as long as you feel comfortable with the circumstances and it is not a conflict of interest. We also want to stay far away from any potential conflicts of interest and will quickly let you know if we have questions or feel uncomfortable in proceeding with your referral as well.
Can I refer more than one lead?
There is no limit. The more the better. That means the sky is the limit for your commissions too. Please see guidance on “who is a good referral candidate” above.
How do I submit a referral?
Once registered as a referral agent, you can submit referrals automatically by utilizing a special link embedded in emails, texts, social media, blogs or downloadable banner ads that will be made available to you after the registration process. More active Affiliates will be invited to enroll in a special program for even better rewards and additional referral options.
What if I don’t want to register as a referral agent?
Anyone can submit a single referral on our website any time. However, you will not get compensated for that referral unless registered. All other terms and conditions, such as privacy, still apply.
