How does affiliate marketing work?
Affiliate marketing is a kind of marketing where businesses reward affiliates for visitors they send to the business’s site via the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.

How the bcnectars.ca referral program works?

As affiliate you promote our online store using your referral link, any conversion that are made as a result, will generate a commission. You can earn commissions on both direct referrals made by yourself, and indirect referrals made by your sub affiliates. This allows you to earn commissions from multiple sales by simply referring just one person to our website!

There are four commission levels we use for direct / indirect referrals:

  • Direct referral – level 0: 10% commission from the order total
  • Indirect referral – level 1: 7.5% commission from the order total
  • Indirect referral – level 2: 5% commission from the order total
  • Indirect referral – level 3: 2.5% commission from the order total

You will also be awarded with a $10 CAD sign up bonus and a $10 CAD sub affiliate commission for every new sub affiliate you enroll to your matrix.

How can I join the program?
At the moment you register an user account on our online store, you will also become affiliate automatically.

How do I verify my account?
In order to be able to verify you are older than 21 years old and that no one it’s using your document, we have to go through a very simple process that has to be done once. You just have to upload a photo of your ID and a photo of you holding your ID in your hand. After we verify these photos your account will be green lighted and you will be awarded with your sign up bonus.

How is an affiliate tracked?

When an affiliate promotes our products, they use a referral link which typically looks like this: https://bcnectars.ca/aff/123

When a customer clicks this link and lands on our website, the affiliate’s ID (123 in the example above) is stored in a cookie, within the customer’s browser. If the customer converts, the affiliate that the customer is tracking is awarded commission on the sale.

Is the affiliate tracked across all pages of the site?
Absolutely! Since the affiliate’s ID is stored in a cookie, the affiliate is tracked across all pages on the site.

How long does the tracking cookie stay in the customer's browser?

The cookie’s expiration determined in our site it’s set to 30 days,

Note, a user may clear their browser cookies at any time, in which case the affiliate will no longer be tracked.

If a customer clicks on 2 different affiliate links from 2 different affiliates, which one is awarded?
We credit the last affiliate who referred the customer. Let’s say that we have an affiliate named affiliate_1  and affiliate_1  shares a link. Now customer_1  clicks on the link to a product, but they never make a purchase. A second affiliate named affiliate_2  shares an affiliate link that customer_1  clicks on and then makes a purchase, affiliate_2  will receive the commission from customer_1  over affiliate_1.

Can affiliates earn commission on their own purchases?
Our site doesn’t generate own referrals.

If I already filled the four levels of my matrix, can I continue growing?
Our unilevel plan just allow four levels deep, however you can grow as wide as you desire, obtaining the highest commission level because you are adding direct affiliates.
