Frequently Asked Questions

⏤ On Our Nonprofit Affiliate Program ⏤


Interested in joining our Nonprofit Affiliate & Partner Program, but need some questions answered first? You will find our most popular questions below, however, if you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to

An Affiliate Referral ID is a unique URL that is used to direct your donors to a specific page on our website and is the only way your commission is tracked.

We highly advise your nonprofit organization to purchase a custom domain (i.e. www.yourdomain.com) and forward it to your Affiliate URL ⏤ this prevents someone from stripping off your affiliate ID from the www.travelplanetnetwork.com URL.

EXAMPLE:
Your affiliate URL is: www.travelplanetnetwork.com/#yournonprofitID. Anyone who removes the ID after the forward-slash (#yournonprofitID), and instead chooses to go directly to our homepage to make a purchase, the commission on the sale will not be tracked under your account.

Our goal is to ensure you are rightfully earning all of your fundraising money via the combined marketing efforts of your students and teachers, and this is precisely why we advise you to get your own domain name, as to prevent the above from happening. You can go here for more information on how to purchase and set up your domain name (only a $10/year cost, and so worth it).

Also, please note, as stated in our Terms and Conditions, we are not responsible for any commission losses if you choose not to purchase and forward a custom domain.

For those who are also looking to build a team of sub-affiliates, a different URL is used to direct anyone who wants to sign up as an affiliate. In this case, you would create a subdomain (i.e. www.team.yourdomain.com) and forward that to our Affiliate Page. This ensures that your 10% commission is getting tracked from their sales.

The program we use is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses a combination of cookies, along with IP addresses to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on his/her computer that stays active for 60 days from the first time they visited the site. When the visitor pays for the product, the affiliate system checks for the cookie, and if not found, checks for the IP address of referral and credits your account with the commission. This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked and you will be able to access the results of your efforts via reports in your Affiliate Dashboard (aka Back Office).

Note: If someone received information in the form of a digital ad or postcard (Marketing or Recruiting), the FIRST affiliate will receive the referral commission regardless – up to 60 days.
