Affiliate links

Your affiliate link directs visitors to UniEC and includes your unique referral handle so each new merchant you refer can be tracked. When educating your audience about UniEC, always use your unique affiliate link. This ensures you receive credit for the new merchants who sign up for UniEC with the help of your referral. You can copy the affiliate link provided in your Affiliate Dashboard.

A standard affiliate link looks like this:[YOUR_UNIQUE_REF_HANDLE]

How your affiliate link works

Your affiliate link includes a 120-day tracking cookie. This means that if a visitor clicks on your affiliate link posted on your website, then you will be credited with the referral as long as the visitor signs up for a 14-day free trial within 120 days. When the 14-day free trial ends and the visitor becomes a paying customer, you will earn a commission bounty.

Make sure to use this link every time you mention UniEC in your course, blog, YouTube, podcast, email list, social networks, or other channels. You can use advanced tracking to measure the success of your campaigns in your Affliate Dashboard.

Using the Affiliate Dashboard

You can use the Affiliate Dashboard to manage your affiliate account details and understand your affiliate referrals and campaigns.

Affiliate bounty

You're eligible to receive a bounty payment for merchants that you refer to a paid UniEC plan through your affiliate link. To learn more about the revenue that you're entitled to as a UniEC Affiliate, see UniEC Affiliate revenue share.
