Terms of Use

Participation in the GreenSmoothieGirl.com Affiliate Program requires agreement to these terms of use. You may not participate in the program if you do not understand and agree to these terms of use.

Scope and Eligibility

Our Affiliate Program is designed to provide an incentive for Affiliates to regularly promote GSG products and services. The program will reward health professionals, educators, and individuals who demonstrate a regular effort to promote GSG products and services. Affiliates are paid a referral commission based on a percentage of the sale amount of an eligible purchase.

Being a GSG Affiliate requires ongoing promotion of GSG products or services through any of the following venues:
1) a website that actively promotes GSG products or services,
2) an active blog, social network presence, newsletter, or email campaign that actively promotes GSG products or services,
3) a health practice or program that actively promotes GSG products or services.

Please contact affiliate support to see if any alternative approaches to promoting GSG products and services qualify.

What a Referral Is

Referrals are orders or event opt-ins customers make from our website after being sent (referred) to our site by an affiliate.

Example A: 1.) Joe clicks on your affiliate link, 2.) Joe purchases an eligible item, 3.) you are credited with a referral.
Example B: 1.) Jen clicks on your affiliate link, 2.) Jen does not purchase an eligible item, 3.) you are not credited with a referral.

Once a customer has placed an order or opted in to a GSG event, the affiliate receives all future commissions from that customer.

We do not give credit for referrals on orders that have already been completed, or that were not processed through an affiliate link.

Commission Payment Clawbacks and Miscalculations

Clawbacks are retractions of commission payments due to refunds issued on orders which had generated referral commissions. If a refund is issued for an order which generated a commission for an affiliate, the commission will be retracted in one of two methods described below. If a miscalculation has resulted in a commission payment to our detriment, the commission may be retracted in one of two methods described below.

  1. The retracted commission amount will be deducted from the Affiliate's current or future commission payment.
  2. The retracted commission amount will be requested from the Affiliate's PayPal account. PayPal does not charge a fee if payment is made from your PayPal balance or bank account. See PayPal for details.

Although we take measures to minimize clawbacks by postponing commission payouts until the typical refund period has passed, it is possible that clawbacks will occur.

Failure to Use Affiliate Link

Orders placed by customers who failed to use an affiliate link are not eligible for referral consideration. Requests for retroactive referrals will not be accepted for existing orders without prior approval.

If you have referred a customer to our site and the customer failed to use your affiliate link for any reason, a referral will not be credited to your account retroactively. If a customer you referred to our site finds the use of your affiliate link to be problematic, contact us immediately.

Customers whose devices block HTTP cookies, thereby preventing referrals from being completed, are not eligible for referral consideration without the prior approval described herein. The GSG Affiliate Program requires cookies to track affiliate link clicks.

Certain venues will receive permission in advance for customers to place orders by manually entering an affiliate link URL. For example, an alternative health practice who directly promotes GSG products on location, but does not have a website or online venue to promote GSG products, may receive approval for retroactive referrals.

Since GSG Affiliates are required to actively promote GSG products and services, it is expected that referrals be generated by use of affiliate link.

Review the Scope and Eligibility section for approved venues. Potential Affiliates who operate in a venue not included in the Scope and Eligibility section may contact affiliate support to request approval for an alternative venue.
