      We do not allow affiliates to copy the look and feel of our site. This includes site designs that create the impression that your website is our website.

    • What are your PPC Guidelines?

      We prohibit bidding on our brand name (Clinical Effects), including variations and misspellings on Google, Bing MSN, Yahoo, Facebook or any other network.

    • Can I post Clinical Effects coupons on my site?

      Yes, but you must use a coupon that is assigned to you or is provided to you through the affiliate program. You may NOT advertise coupon codes obtained from our non-affiliate advertising, customer emails, paid search, or any other campaign. Sales that result from the use of an internal coupon are non-commissionable and will not be assigned to your affiliate account. Further, coupons can only be posted on your site. You are prohibited from syndicating your coupon or posting on coupon share sites. For more detailed information, read the Coupon Guidelines in the Affiliate Agreement.

      Not OK

      Promotion on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms is permitted following these general guidelines:

      1. You ARE allowed to promote offers to your own lists; more specifically, you're welcome to use your affiliate links on your own Facebook, Twitter, etc. pages. For example, You may post, '25% off sale at Clinical Effects through Wednesday with code GET25'.

      4. You ARE PROHIBITED from creating a social media account that includes our trademark/s in the page name and/or username.
    • What is your policy on commission reversals?

      We take pride in not reversing customer orders and chargebacks that occur in the ordinary course of business. However, we reserve the right to reverse orders due to order cancellations, duplicate orders, undeliverable addresses, chargebacks related to fraud, and program violations as outlined in the affiliate agreement.

    • Do you have a bulk email/messaging/text policy?

      Sending a message to anyone who has not given consent is SPAM. We do not allow any type of email, messaging, text or social media group spamming. Any account in violation of this policy is subject to immediate and permanent termination. Additionally, all pending commissions will be voided. We encourage any and all types of ethical advertising/marketing, but spamming is strictly prohibited.

    • How do I track what I’ve earned?

      We provide real-time traffic and sales data through your affiliate account. Log into your account anytime for 24/7 updates on your commissions. Additionally, you can choose to have sales alerts sent to your email when your referrals make purchases.

    • Why is this better than Amazon Associates?

      Since Amazon promotes side-by-side competition between similar products within a given category, you get what’s often referred to as a “race to the bottom” in terms of pricing, which generally means that the cheapest product with decent reviews gets the most purchases.

      While the low prices found on Amazon may be good for conversions, the Amazon commissions are typically very low compared to ours. Their commission rate is 1% on Health and Personal Care Products.

      Additionally, our commissions are paid 10 days from the close of the month in which they were earned. This is significantly faster than the 60 day period required by the Amazon Associates program.

    • What makes it better than other affiliate programs?

      We pride ourselves on making the process as easy, profitable and enjoyable as possible. We offer bigger payouts than other affiliate programs, as well as direct support with your own affiliate manager. This ensures you have everything lined up to maximize your commissions – and if you run into any challenges, we are happy to help you sort them out.

      Additionally, we continually optimize every element of the customer experience to maximize conversion rate and help you earn even bigger commissions.
