Dherbs’ Affiliates Program offers eligible affiliates the opportunity to earn commissions on qualifying sales that originate from links to Dherbs’ website. This Affiliates Policy explains your rights and responsibilities when participating in Dherbs’ Affiliates Program.
1. Eligibility and Enrollment in Dherbs’ Affiliates Program
Prospective affiliates must apply and be approved by Dherbs in order to gain access to the Affiliates Program.
Prospective affiliates are evaluated based on criteria such as type of site, site quality, site content, variety of site content and items promoted, brand identity, and alignment with Dherbs’ values. During the application process, prospective affiliates may be asked to share additional information about any of the listed criteria.
Dherbs sellers are eligible for the Affiliates Program but are not eligible to earn commission on sales from their own shops or from closely related shops. Closely related shops are shops in which a Dherbs seller has a financial interest or a material connection, such as a shared bank account or credit card, with the seller’s own shop.
To be eligible for our Affiliates Program, you must:
- Have a website with a URL – all unique sites and URLs must be approved separately by Dherbs; or social media accounts.
- Have an appropriate amount of content on your site/social media accounts;
- Declare the names of any Dherbs account or distributor account you own or are closely related to (if applicable) to Dherbs’ Affiliate team via email upon application;
- Inform Dherbs’ Affiliate team via email of any Dherbs shops you register or become involved in after becoming an approved affiliate.
Dherbs’ Affiliate team can be reached at the following email address: email@example.com
The following types of websites are prohibited from participating in the Affiliates Program:
- “Cash-back” or voucher sites (websites that offer rewards for buying goods through referral links);
- Coupon Websites or links
- Price comparison sites;
- Advertising networks (online networks that sell or place advertisements);
- Sites using “pop-ups” or “pop-unders” (websites that launch “pop-up” or hidden windows on users’ browsers);
- Sites that violate Dherbs’s Trademark Policy;
- Forums, and registries;
- Sites that exist solely to promote Dherbs items;
- Link trees or link directories or links-only pages;
- Sites with content related to religious, political, or other sensitive matters.
Prospective affiliates must apply and approved affiliates must enroll directly through the Affiliates Program platform. Signing up to the program via a sub-network is not permitted. Affiliates may leave the Affiliates Program and terminate this agreement at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Dherbs reserves the right to remove Affiliates from the Affiliates Program and refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time.
Participation in the Affiliates Program may be limited to affiliates located in certain countries and is void where prohibited by law. Dherbs reserves the right to approve or reject any application to join the Affiliates Program for any reason.
Depending on where an affiliate is located, they may be subject to varying regulations regarding endorsements and testimonials. For example, in the United States, the Federal Trade Commission outlines specific requirements regarding disclosure. It is the affiliate’s responsibility to know and follow any applicable regulations that apply to their site. Dherbs is unable to provide legal advice; we urge you to speak to a legal expert if you believe these or other regulations may apply to you.
2. Commission Rates, Qualifying Sales, and Payment
As an affiliate, you can receive commissions for qualifying sales. Commission rates are determined by the Affiliate Deal or Influencer Affiliate Deal. Currently Affiliate Deals are 10% and Influencers are 15%. These are subject to change anytime.
Qualifying sales are sales made on Dherbs’ website (www.Dherbs.com) by users that arrived on the Dherbs site by clicking an approved link on an Affiliate’s site (an “Affiliate Link”). Affiliate links, including URLs and banners or other creative assets, can be found on the Affiliates Program platform. Affiliates may not alter any of the text links or creative assets made available through the Affiliates Program platform in order to receive payment. Affiliates are also requested not to hardcode Affiliate Links into their sites, so that any updates to creative assets take immediate effect.
The Affiliates Program platform uses browser cookies to verify qualifying sales. The cookies are valid for thirty (30) days (the “Cookie Period”). Commissions are paid on qualifying sales made during the Cookie Period. This means that an Affiliate can receive a commission for a qualifying sale if the sale was made within thirty days of the user clicking the Affiliate Link, as long as the Affiliate was the last referrer. If a user clicks multiple Affiliate Links, the last Affiliate Link to be clicked prior to a qualifying sale will receive the commission.
Commissions are calculated by multiplying the relevant commission rate and the price of the qualifying sales (excluding shipping costs and taxes). Commissions are not paid on sales that are canceled or returned.
Commissions are subject to review and other limitations for fraudulent activity. Dherbs reserves the right to withhold commissions if fraudulent activity is found.
3. Program Restrictions
Affiliates that violate any of the following program restrictions may be suspended or removed from the Affiliates Program and may not receive commissions, in Dherbs’ sole discretion:
Use of Voucher Codes
Affiliates may not promote voucher codes unless provided through the Affiliates Program platform.
Use of Coupon Codes and Sites
Affiliate whose business model substantially consists of making coupons available or marketing on Coupon Websites shall be determined by Dherbs in its sole discretion. Factors that may lead to classification as “Coupon Affiliate” include, but are not limited to (i) the presence of coupon offerings, especially from many different merchants, on the Affiliate’s website, especially if such coupons represent many different merchants and/or are indexed or are organized in a directory; (ii) the presence of certain words (or variations or misspellings thereof) in the website’s URL or prominently featured in the website’s content, such as “coupons,” “deals” or “savings”; (iii) a website that is focused on other merchants and the discounts or promotions offered by them, rather than on products, and that features little original, human- generated content. Dherbs does NOT allow affiliates to use these sites to gain cookies from potential customers. Use of unauthorized links or coupon codes (those links or codes not specifically provided to you through dherbs.com) by us is prohibited. You are not allowed to use keywords such as dherbs.com and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of such keywords be it separately or in combination with + coupon, + discount and similar key phrases in the domain names. Such actions will be considered trademark violations and you will be terminated. Posting coupon offers on your website or other websites with “reveal the coupon code ” or similar phrase that stimulates visitor to click to reveal a coupon code and go to the dherbs.com site is prohibited and your account will be terminated.
Paid Advertising (Pay-Per-Click or Pay-Per-View, etc.)
All PPC/PPV or similar traffic is prohibited and may not participate in the Affiliates Program.
Affiliate Link Shortening or Link Cloaking / Hiding
You may not cloak, hide, spoof, or otherwise obscure the URL of your site containing the Dherbs affiliate links (including by use of a redirecting page) such that we cannot determine the site from which a customer clicks through such link to the Dherbs site. Such clicks won’t be tracked.
Responsibility for Your Site
You are solely responsible for your site, including its development, operation, and maintenance and all materials that appear on or within it. Dherbs disclaims all liability for your site and for any of your users’ claims relating to your site, and you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Dherbs harmless from and against all claims relating to your site.
