Affiliate Program - FAQs

How do I earn money through the Kolbe Affiliate Program?
You earn referral fees when a visitor follows a link from your website to Kolbe.com and successfully completes a purchase. You can earn up to 8% in referral fees for the items purchased. As a reminder, referral fees are only calculated on items that are purchased through the Kolbe Affiliate Program (KAP) link on your website and must occur during that same session on Kolbe.com. Referral fees are not earned if a user returns to Kolbe.com at a later time without following your KAP link.

How do I get paid?
We calculate your referral fees on a quarterly basis.  If the sum of your referral fees exceeds $25, a check will be issued to you within 30 days of the close of the quarter.

Q1: January - March
Q2: April - June
Q3: July-September
Q4: October-December

Do you notify the IRS of the referral fees I earn?
If you earn more than $600 in a calendar year, we are legally required to file a 1099 form with the IRS, naming the payee as a contractor who has received a taxable amount of income from KAP.

How many items should I feature?
How many items you choose to feature is entirely up to you and should be based on your website content, users and traffic. Research indicates that a few well-recommended items are more successful than linking to a long list of items. With Kolbe.com's mix of products from books to cassettes to the ability to take real-time Kolbe Indexes, you have a number of options that will complement your website content and services.

How can I link my site to Kolbe.com?
Please visit our Start Earning section to select from a variety of linking methods.

How many links can I put up on my site?
There is no limit on the number of links you may place on your website. Linking to various sections of Kolbe.com may require additional links as well as if you elect to place a text vs. graphical link and/or different size graphical links.

Does KAP link back to my website?
We do not currently offer reciprocal links to our affiliate's websites.

When communicating with others how can I identify myself as a member of the Kolbe Affiliate Program? 
Your communication must clearly and accurately describe the nature of your participation in the KAP and must not create confusion or misrepresent the nature of your participation in the KAP. You may describe yourself as a member or participant in the KAP.

How do I change my account information?
You may modify your account information online ONLY if you are logged into the Affiliate Manager. Once logged into the manager, select "Edit Account Info" link in the left column.
