1. Who do we want to become an affiliate?
We will partner with sites that attract a large number of visitors who are likely to have an interest in the ExcelCalcs site. We want to work with a few strategic partners and offer a good return for their promotion of the ExcelCalcs website on a long term basis.

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?
Seeing is believing so we ask new affiliates to use their own affiliate links to click through and purchase an XLC Pro subscription for $90 from the ExcelCalcs site. Then you can then log in the ExcelCalcs Affiliate site to see how your click and purchase has been tracked. Of course we will refund the full amount back to you. The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor pays for the product, affiliate system checks for cookie (if not found, checks for IP address of referral) and credits your account 30% of the purchase value. This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked. Post Affiliate Pro is used by thousands of Internet merchants and affiliates world-wide.

3. How is the payment handled?
We prefer all our affiliates to use a PayPal account so that we can easily automate the payment process. The minimum payout value is $100 USD. Payments are issued in US dollars only, and are paid once a month, always on 15th. We are prepared to discuss other methods of payment should this be necessary.

4. How do I set up an account?
Setting up an account is very easy. All you need to sign up go to the Signup Form and fill it out. After a review from our affiliate manager, you will receive email with your password and other information. As our affiliate, you will have your own control panel where you can see detailed statistics of traffic and sales you referred, news and training materials, and choice of banners and text links. Then you only need to place an affiliate link, banner, text link or other link at your web site or place ads in pay-per-click search engines, so you can start sending customers to our web site.

5. What is the affiliate link?
Affiliate link is a special URL where you should be sending the visitors. You will get the URL's for different banners in your affiliate panel after log in.

6. Why use a DirectLink URL?
Setting your DirectLink URL string (e.g. "*yoursite.com*") sets the affiliate software to monitor any click throughs from any page from your site to any page on the ExcelCalcs.com site. This allows you to copy and paste content from the ExcelCalcs site into your own site without having to add your individual affiliate links. This becomes a new and easy way to produce interesting new content and articles for your site. It also means that any existing links to ExcelCalcs on your site will be tracked by the affiliate software. It allows you to be a little more discrete in declaring your affiliation with the ExcelCalcs site too.

7. Do you have any training program for affiliates?
Yes, basics of affiliate marketing and most useful tips are described in your affiliate panel. You will also find an explanatory screencam tutorial to explain the system and shows you how to work it. We recommend excellent SuperAffiliate Handbook.
