What is an affiliate program, how does it work?
An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate drives traffic to a merchant's web site in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor clicks on your affiliate link to www.ledgerwallet.com and completes a purchase, you get a commission on every item they buy. You can use your personal affiliate link to refer your blog readers, site visitors, social media followers, friends etc.
Once you sign up to our program, you will have access to your own personal account on the Ledger Affiliate platform. Here you can log in at any time to get our banners, links and other promotional material as well as find out about commissions earned.
Why join the program?
The Ledger Affiliate program allows you to share the success of our hardware wallets and earn bitcoins by promoting Ledger products.
The cryptocurrency sector is rapidly expanding and Ledger hardware wallets offer the highest security available to safeguard over 20 cryptocurrencies. The strong demand for our products can lead to high conversion rates for your referral campaigns when marketed effectively. Ledger also offers one of the highest commission rates in the sector and allows you to earn a 15% commission on the sale value for every referral sale you generate.
How do I get started to become a Ledger Affiliate?
- Step 1: Sign up!
- Step 2: Pick up your affiliate link on your account and start promoting Ledger hardware wallets. The links are valid immediately and you have access to banners and other promotional material that you can put up on your site or distribute via social media etc.
- Step 3: Get validated for payouts: we will review all new affiliate accounts once you have generated a minimum of 2 referral sales and 50 euros in commission value on your account. When you have reached these initial thresholds, we will ask you to submit a questionnaire, available on your account, for our review. Once validated, your account is eligible for payouts.
- Step 4: Collect your commissions.
How much will I earn? How and when will I get paid?
The 15% commission on referral sales is calculated from the final sale value before Value Added Tax and delivery costs and is paid to your BTC address in bitcoins according to bitcoin market value at the time of the payout.
Affiliate payouts take place on Mondays, either weekly or monthly (first Monday of the month). The payment frequency depends on our internal processes at hand but at the minimum the commissions are guaranteed to be paid out once a month. The minimum commission amount that triggers a payout is 50 euros.
You can see a list of your past payouts on your affiliate account. You may have a negative payout balance value on rare occasions. This happens when a client that has made an order through your link cancels or returns the order within 35 days of the transaction date.
