When registering to become an affiliate, you choose how you would like to be compensated. Compensation can be in the form of store credits, which you use to purchase goods, or cash. If you choose store credits, your commission will be 30%, if you choose cash, your commission will be 20%.
You may purchase bulk orders directly from Chenna Baree, or you can refer people to our website with your Affiliate or Promotion code. Chenna Baree will calculate your commission for all purchases using your codes and keep track of what is owed to you. Your affiliate dashboard is where you can go at any time to see exactly what has been purchased, what has been paid, and what is owing to you.
Q. How do I choose what type of affiliate I am?
A. If you plan on ordering from us and distributing them to your own customers then you are a Store Credit Affiliate. If you only refer people to our website, then you are a Cash Affiliate. If you have questions please give us a call. You can change your affiliate type any time by contacting us.
Q. What is the difference between an Affiliate and a Promotion code?
A. An Affiliate code or Affiliate URL (to be used in online promotion) is how we know the order is from you and you therefore get your commission. A promotion code does the same thing, but in addition allows you to give your customers a portion of your commission in the form of a discount.
Q. Can I offer my clients a discount?
A. Yes, you can divide your credits between you and your clients in any way you choose using a promotion code. Examples are given below. It is a good idea to use promotion codes to offer your customers a discount if you refer them to our website. This will motivate them to use your promotion code.
Q. Can I offer a one time or seasonal special?
A. Yes, contact us and we will create a promotion code for you to use.
Q. Can I purchase from the website at my affiliate rate?
A. Yes, most products are available to you at your affiliate rate. If you are a Store Credit Affiliate, prices will be discounted automatically. If you are a Cash Affiliate, you will see regular prices but a promotion code will be applied automatically when you add items to your cart. We recognize you as an affiliate when you log in.
Q. How are store credits used?
A. As a Store Credit Affiliate, when you place a bulk order at checkout you will be presented with the option to use your store credits as payment or partial payment.
Q. What happens to my commission when Chenna Baree offers on-line discounts?
A. Your commission is calculated based on the price the customer pays before your promotion code is used. You therefore get the maximum comission.
A customer you refer purchases 1 pair shoes from the Chenna Baree website. You gave that customer a 10% discount.
Customer pays $73.80, which is $82 retail less $8.20 (your 10% discount). As a Cash Affiliate your account gets credited with $8.20. That’s $16.40 (20% commission) less $8.20 (10% that you offered the customer). As a Store Credit Affiliate your account gets credited with $16.40. That’s $24.60 (30% commission) less $8.20 (10% that you offered the customer).
A customer you refer purchases 3 pair shoes from the Chenna Baree website. You offer that customer a 10% discount. Chenna Baree also offers a 10% discount for purchase of 3 pair.
Customer pays $199.26, which is $246 retail less $24.60 (Chenna Baree discount) less $22.14 (your 10% discount). Chenna Baree sells for $221.40, which is $246 retail less $24.60 (10% quantity discount). So your commission is based on $221.40.
As a Cash Affiliate your account gets credited with $22.14. That’s $44.28 (20% commission) less $22.14 (10% that you offered the customer). As a Store Credit Affiliate your account gets credited with $44.28. That’s $66.42 (30% commission) less $22.14 (10% that you offered the customer).
After referring 6 customers to the website, 3 who purchased 1 pair and 3 who purchased 3 pair (examples 1 and 2), you place an order for 10 pair for customers you will deliver to personally.
As a Store Credit Affiliate, you pay $391.96. That’s $820 (10 pair at retail) less $246 (30% discount) less commission credits of $182.04 (3 @ $16.40 plus 3 @ $44.28).
