REFERRAL PARTNER PROGRAM TERMS & CONDITIONS

By applying to become a Primal Blueprint & Primal Kitchen Referral Partner (also known as an affiliate), you agree to be bound by the following terms of the program.

Registration

We may reject your application if we decide (at our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the program. All information submitted must be truthful and accurate. Failure to provide accurate information may result in immediate termination of affiliate’s participation in the program.


By registering for the Primal Blueprint & Primal Kitchen Referral Partner program, you agree to receive occasional email from us related to the program. We will not share or resell your information, and our Privacy Policy applies.

Commission Rates

Our affiliate program provides you with a 10% commission on referred sales, not including the value of shipping and handling or taxes.

There are a few exceptions to this:

We pay a 40% commission on our digital programs:

  • New in 2018: Paleo Cooking Bootcamp Digital Package ($147)

  • New in 2018: Keto Reset Mastery Course ($147)

  • The 21-Day Transformation Program (Digital Version)

  • Don't Just Sit There

  • The Primal Endurance Mastery

Lifetime Commissions

We offer lifetime commissions within our affiliate program. However, there are technical limitations and performance requirements.


From the moment a customer visits our site via your affiliate URL, a cookie is placed on their computer. This allows us to track the customer even if they don’t immediately make a purchase. They can close their browser and return later to complete the order, and you will still be recognized as the referring affiliate. Our cookies are set with a 45-day duration.


The customer may choose to clear their cookies at any time. This is out of our control. Clearing cookies will remove any tracking, and purchases will no longer be tracked to your affiliate account. The same applies if they use a different web browser or device than originally used to access your referral link.


Once a purchase is made, that customer is linked to your affiliate account. As long as you are the most recent referrer, all future purchases by that customer account will be automatically tied to your affiliate account and will generate the relevant commissions. Once this connection is made, there is no further reliance on cookies.


We use “last click” tracking. This means that if a customer was referred by another affiliate weeks, months or even years ago, but then clicks on your link and makes a new purchase, you will get receive commissions for this new order instead of the original referrer, and will receive lifetime commissions on that customer’s future purchases for as long as that customer isn't referred by some other affiliate. "Last click" tracking is the most common type of tracking, and rewards the most recent marketing and promotional efforts.


Referral Partners that do not meet minimum performance requirements may lose lifetime commissions status. Ten (10) new referred customers per year are required to maintain lifetime commission status. If 10 new customers are not referred by any given affiliate within a single year lifetime commissions will be revoked, and all recurring commissions previously earned under the referral partner program will cease.

Generating Referrals

In order to be awarded commission for a purchase, you must utilize your unique referral URL, provided within your affiliate dashboard. Upon registration for the affiliate program, you will also have the opportunity to set up an optional coupon code. This coupon code will be unique to your business and do two things 1.) track referred sales back to you and 2.) discount your customer orders by 10% should you want to offer your community a discount.


You are permitted to use link cloaking, link tracking or other forms of redirection. However, be aware that some ad networks or social networks do not allow such links to be used.

Recurring Products (Subscription Products)

Where customers choose to purchase a recurring product (e.g. monthly deliveries of products) you will receive commission on all recurring orders as long as you are the last referring affiliate.

Commission is earned at the time of renewal.

If the customer cancels their ongoing recurring order, commissions will also cease.

Custom Code

To help our affiliate program be part of your successful business, we’re offering a chance to setup a custom code. This custom code can perform two functions:


1.) Track your affiliate referred sales to be used on your website, email and social media sites

2.) (Optional) Provide a 10% discount on orders placed on primalblueprint.com and primalkitchen.com. This coupon code is optional and must be requested upon enrollment.


Email affiliate@primalkitchen.com or affiliate@primalblueprint.com to request a custom coupon code for your audience.

Refunds

In the event that a customer requests a refund (and we honor that request) – we reserve the right to deduct any commission already paid out on that sale from future commissions.

Commission Payouts

Payments are issued on or after the 1st of every month for the month that ended 90 days prior.


For example, payments made on September 1 are for the period May 1-May 31. Payments made on October 1 are for the period of June 1-June 30, and so on. This provides adequate time for us to account for clawbacks (i.e. revoking commissions earned on orders that have been refunded).


One must meet a minimum commission threshold of $100 in a given period in order to receive payment for that period.


We issue payments via PayPal. We are unable to provide commission payouts via check.


We cannot be responsible for any banking fees you may incur by receiving a payment from us.

Promotion

Paid search and social advertising (Google Adwords, Facebook, etc.) on brand terms, trademarked terms, and product names are prohibited.
