Our affiliate scheme is a way for companies, practitioners and individuals to receive commissions on sales by referring customers to us.
How do I promote the products?
As soon as you have joined the scheme, you will have access to all of the necessary affiliate marketing material to start promoting our products. Promoting our products is easy. Simply browse our website and select the items you wish to promote, copy bit of code we will give you into emails, blogs, newsletters or onto your web site if you have one. It is as simple as that. It should be easy, but if you're having a problem, you can always click here
What can products can I promote?
All of them. The Finchley Clinic affiliate scheme offers marketing materials for all of our products, product categories and manufacturers. In other words you can promote individual products, individual categories, or a given manufacturer. We also offer specialized marketing material to promote the site in general.
Let's say I promote one product / category / manufacturer but the customer comes along through my link and buys something else, will I get commission on that product instead?
It makes no difference whatsoever whether they buy the product you promote or buy something else - you will still earn commission if the customer came through you.
How much money will I make?
You will receive a 10% commission on all sales (exclusive of VAT) from customers that you have referred to us except on clearance items, where we are often selling at or below cost price.
How Do I Get Paid?
At the moment we pay affiliates by Paypal only, so you will need to have a Paypal account before we can pay you your commission. Don't worry if you don't already have a Paypal account, you can always create one later, and give us the details when you've accumulated enough commission to be paid.
Please note that you do not need a PayPal account to start marketing our products.
The minimum commission we pay is £50.
You can also pay for goods using your commission and there is no minimum spend in force when paying for goods using your affiliate commission, as long as your commission is more than the total cost of the order.
Our affiliate scheme vs most other affiliate schemes
Our affiliate scheme is fairer and more ethical than most other affiliate scheme. Why?
This is because most of them are not genuine affiliate scheme - they are introductory commission schemes. Meaning that you only get commission on your clients first order. Even with schemes that claim to be ongoing, they usually are not. This is because they usually work by storing a piece of computer code called a cookie on the customers computer which identifies the customer as associated with a particular affiliate. However if your client then buys the products using a different computer, or they clear out the cache on their computer, or they have an internet security program which does it automatically, this data is lost. We think this is unfair and unethical. So our affiliate scheme does NOT use this technology, and your commissions will be ongoing. You just need to make a minimum of one sale per year to stay on the scheme (we may make this rule a little tighter in the future).
