Our affiliate program works by rewarding you with a fixed percentage of all income from clients you refer to us. You start off with a
revenue share. We are happy to review this figure after 3 months of trading depending on how you are performing as an affiliate.
First you need to create an iSpy Account (free!), then you need to fill out a short application form (link below). Once you have been approved we will provide you with access to our affiliates area where you can monitor earnings and download affiliate resources (links, banners etc).
- We pay out monthly to a paypal account that you nominate.
- We hold funds for 30 days from purchase to safeguard against refunds and credit card chargebacks.
- A minimum payout of $20 applies, otherwise the payout rolls over into the next month.
- We pay in Australian Dollars.
- SMS recharge is not included in revenue share.
- You cannot spam people. You can only mail out to people who have explicitly opted in to receive your communications and you must provide an opt-out link in the email. If we see that you are spamming people we will terminate your affiliate account immediately.
- We use a combination of 30 day cookies and session variables to track users so if they come back to our site later your affiliate details will still be captured.

Web Site Affiliate Agreement
This Affiliate Agreement contains the terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the (iSpyConnect) referral program (the "Program"). This Agreement covers the establishment of a iSpyConnect Internet portal or "link" on the applicant's site on the World Wide Web (the "Web"). Throughout this Agreement, (iSpyConnect) will be referred to as "(iSpyConnect)", "we" or "our" will be referred to as "the Referral Partner", "you" or "your". (iSpyConnect)'s site on the World Wide Web is referred to herein as "our web site"; your site on the World Wide Web is referred to herein as "your web site" or "Referral Partner Web Site".
To participate in iSpyConnect's Program you must complete the online application found on the site: http://www.ispyconnect.com/ and agree to all the terms of this operating agreement. iSpyConnect may reject any application for any reason. iSpyConnect will reject any application to place its link on a web site that contains, in iSpyConnect’s sole opinion, any objectionable content. Objectionable content includes content that is unlawful in any manner, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, harassing, sexually explicit, violent, unlawfully discriminatory, or is otherwise objectionable. iSpyConnect will also reject applications to place its link on a web site that contains links to and advertisements for web sites with objectionable content, gambling sites and casinos.
2. Display of iSpyConnect's Link
We will provide to you the technical specifications and other information and logos necessary to establish iSpyConnect's banner, link or Uniform Resource Locator (URL) on your web site. These link materials are available in your affiliate log-in panel in the “Affiliate Resources” section. You agree to display prominently iSpyConnect's graphical image file as provided by iSpyConnect on one or more pages on your web site. You expressly agree that iSpyConnect's name, trademark, logo or any other identifying material will appear on your web page (or on any other web page under your control) only in the form supplied by iSpyConnect. iSpyConnect's graphical image file will provide a link only to a URL to which iSpyConnect has agreed.

Upon notice from iSpyConnect you must immediately remove all references to iSpyConnect, including its name, logo, trademark, service mark or any other identifying material from your web site immediately.
3. Referral Commissions
For each customer who visits iSpyConnect's web site through the link at your web site, or is referred to iSpyConnect in writing or by email, and who purchases iSpyConnect services (Services) from iSpyConnect as a result of such link or referral, iSpyConnect will pay to you a repeating base referral commission of up to 45% of GROSS sales per customer account that is billed and collected by iSpyConnect. (Example: a customer who purchases a $15.95 subscription will require iSpyConnect to pay the affiliate $7.18 per month until that user cancels their subscription). In order to be eligible for a referral commission, the customer must purchase Products through the link at your site or through written contracts or referral and the Products must be billed and collected by iSpyConnect. Referral commissions will be paid to Referral Partner 45 days from the last day of the month in which customers are billed and collected by iSpyConnect. Accounts not meeting these criteria will not be eligible for a referral commission. iSpyConnect, at iSpyConnect's sole discretion, may refuse any customer. All qualifying referral commissions will be credited to an account set up by you.
4. Payment of Referral Commissions
You will receive payment of referral commissions on the first of the month when your account balance exceeds $20 to a PayPal account that you nominate. Funds are cleared for payment to you 30 days after iSpyConnect receives them to allow for cancellations, refunds and chargebacks. If for any reason this Agreement is terminated prior to your first referral commission being due and the account balance does not exceed $20, then no referral commission will be due, but may be paid out to the affiliate by iSpyConnect as a gesture of “good will”. If this Agreement is terminated after the first referral commission is due and payable or has been paid, then any referral commission balances in your account will be paid to you within approximately 45 days from the end of the month in which this Agreement was terminated.
