Affiliate News and Updates
By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from WPYellowFish.com. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the WPYellowFish.com affiliate program. These emails may also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote WPYellowFish.com. As an affiliate you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted).
We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):
- Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices, or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.

- Applications from websites considered inappropriate by WPYellowFish.com will be rejected. Examples include but are not limited to adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites.
Dormant Affiliate Accounts
Please don’t leave us! We encourage all of our affiliates to actively promote WPYellowFish.com to keep earning referrals. If we can help you come up with ideas on how to promote WPYellowFish.com, please let us know – we’re here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months. But we don’t even want to go there right now, right?! Let’s work together to help you start earning some cash!
Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications
Once you have signed up for the Affiliate Program, you will be assigned a unique Affiliate Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we may provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We may provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to WPYellowFish.com. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won’t change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and WPYellowFish.com. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the WPYellowFish.com properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the WPYellowFish.com placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Special Links.” You will earn referral fees only with respect to sales on a WPYellowFish.com product occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
Affiliates will receive 25% of the revenue as a commission from orders placed through properly coded Affiliate links (unless noted otherwise for a particular product). Commissions may change at the discretion of WPYellowFish.com, and although commissions may increase during limited time special promotions, they will return thereafter to the regular 25% commission rate.
WPYellowFish.com shall compile and calculate the data required to determine your eligible commission payment. This information will be available for your review via your Affiliate Account Home page. Any questions or disputes regarding the data or payout provided by WPYellowFish.com must be submitted in writing within five (5) business days from the most recent payment date, otherwise the information will be deemed accurate and accepted as such by you.
For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to https://www.wpyellowfish.com and complete an order for a product during that session.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not and cannot pay commissions if someone says they purchased or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system.
We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or methods.
Commissions are paid every 30 days on or about the 15th of the month, for sales made from the previous calendar month. For example, commissions earned during May 1st – 31st would be paid around June 15th.)
There is a minimum commission amount of $25. This is the minimum amount that you must earn before you will be paid commissions. In any commission period, your commission must exceed this amount before you will receive any sums for that period. Commissions below this minimum amount will be held until such time as the commission equals or exceeds this amount.
Commissions are not paid for any sales for which payment has not been received, or for any transaction that has been rejected for any reason.
We are not responsible for paying interest to affiliates for accrued but not yet delivered commission payments.
If a transaction incurs a charge-back, or if an online transaction is not completed in every way, no commission payment is due to the affiliate. If a commission has already been paid, then it will be deducted from an active affiliate’s future commissions.
All commissions are paid in US Dollars by PayPal.
Each affiliate acts as an independent contractor and as such is responsible for any or all United States Federal, state, or foreign income taxes and any other tax liabilities that affect or concern the sales of the products or services, in your state or location. Affiliates that are US Residents are required to provide a completed IRS W9 form (as per current Tax Law), before the application can be approved.
