Frequently Asked Questions 🤔

How does the Brilliant Directories Affiliate Program work?

Create an affiliate account to receive your unique referral link.

New referrals have 45 days from using your unique referral link to make a purchase in order to qualify for commission. Brilliant Directories affiliates earn 50% commission from all new and recurring transactions of their new customer referrals.

Affiliates also receive 50% commission for the lifetime of their referred new BD customers, not just on initial purchases and renewals. If a previously referred customer later upgrades their Brilliant Directories plan or makes additional purchases then the affiliate will earn commission on those transactions as well.

Additionally, affiliates will receive 10% one-time commission when they refer an existing BD customer who makes a new purchase.

Commission payouts are made Monthly / Net-45 Days after customer payment is received.

⚠️ Commissions are paid ONLY via PayPal. Affiliates must have a PayPal account to receive a payout.

What transactions do affiliates earn commission on?

Affiliates earn 50% commission whenever a new Brilliant Directories customer they refer…

  • Makes An Initial Purchase
  • Makes A Renewal Payment
  • Upgrades Their Website Plan
  • Makes Any Future Purchases

Affiliates also earn 10% one-time commission for referring an existing BD customer who makes a new purchase.

What resources do you provide to affiliates?

We will provide you with a variety of landing pages, banners, images, videos, and other resources.

Use the marketing resources we provide or any others you wish in your YouTube, Instagram, or TikTok videos, Facebook or Twitter posts, blog articles, emails and newsletters, etc… wherever your audience is!

Can I become an affiliate if I live outside the United States?

Yes. We accept affiliates from anywhere in the world. All commission payments are made in U.S. dollars via PayPal.

If I have multiple websites/creative channels, do I need to apply separately for each?

No. You should apply once, list all of your websites on your application and advertise Brilliant Directories on any of them once you are approved.

Are there any fees?

There are no fees associated with the Brilliant Directories affiliate program. It is completely free to participate.

Can I self-refer and buy products for myself to get 50% Off?

No. Self-referrals are strictly prohibited and will result in the termination of our affiliate relationship. Like all affiliate programs, you cannot buy products for yourself just to get a 50% discount via the commission. The 50% commission is for new paying customers you refer to Brilliant Directories, not for your own purchases.

Can I receive commission for referrals I made prior to joining the affiliate program?

No. Referrals and commissions are automatically tracked and calculated by the affiliate system and are not retroactive.

Attempts to circumvent this policy by requesting refunds and repurchasing after joining the affiliate program to retroactively earn commissions is strictly prohibited.

What happens if two affiliates refer the same customer?

The affiliate system follows a “last-clicked” model. This means that the affiliate whose link is most recently clicked prior to a successful sale will receive the commission for that sale.
