Affiliate FAQ

What is the Miessence Affiliate Program and how does it work?
The Affiliate Program is a service that allows participating websites to earn commissions on sales referred to Miessence using specially tracked links. We provide you with custom links and banners that you can post on your website. Then when a visitor you’ve referred to us makes a purchase, we’ll keep track and give you a commission on the sale.

Is my website eligible for the Affiliate Program?
We accept almost all types of websites that are relevant to our products and do not contain objectionable or offensive materials. We welcome all applications but reserve the right to refuse membership or revoke a membership at any time and for any reason at our sole discretion.

Are there any fees?
No. There are no fees associated with our affiliate program.

If I have multiple websites, do I need to apply separately for each?
No. You should apply once and list all of your websites on your application.

What is your commission rate?
We pay a 10%-15% tiered commission rate depending on the sales volume generated and a $75 commission on all new Independent Representative referrals. High volume affiliates may be eligible for even higher commission levels.

What is the average order size?
Our average order size at Miessence is $100+.

Is there a minimum annual threshold?
There is no minimum sales level required to remain in the program, but you will not receive a commission check until you earn $50 in commissions.

I don’t have a website for my business, I don’t want to put banners on my website and/or I place orders on behalf of my clients. Can I still be a Miessence affiliate?
Yes, it just takes some extra effort. Miessence has text links that can be taken from the ShareASale website in the “Get Links” section. Whenever you get an order from a customer , copy that text link into your browser and press enter. This will take you to the Miessence website through ShareASale’s routing system and you’ll get credit for the sale.

Will you provide extra support for high-traffic websites?
Yes.  Contact us and we’ll be happy to help you with your affiliate efforts.

Do I receive any discounts on Miessence products since I’m an affiliate?
No. However, we recommend you purchase your orders through your own links so you can earn commission on the sales. You are also free to utilize any of the coupon codes advertised on our website or in printed marketing collateral.

Can I use images from Miessence on my websites?

How do I sign up?

You can join both our program and the ShareASale network in one step by visiting http://www.shareasale.com/shareasale.cfm?merchantID=40343. Please note that your application will be approved faster if you use an email address that matches the website in your profile (i.e. joesmith@website.com and www.website.com). This helps prove that you own the domain listed on your profile.

How do I know if my application has been received or if I have been accepted into the affiliate program?
If your application has been submitted correctly, you should receive a confirmation e-mail from ShareASale. If you do not receive this e-mail, please check your spam folder. Otherwise, you might not have finished the process correctly and you should resubmit your application. Once approved, you will receive a welcome email from our affiliate manager.

How do I create links to Miessence?
When you add a banner or link to your website, it will be tagged with your unique ShareASale affiliate ID. The easiest way to create links is to visit the Miessence ShareASale Affiliate Page once you’ve been approved. There, you can browse through the different categories of text and banner links, or make a custom link to any page on the website.

To create a banner link, please log in to ShareASale’s affiliate gateway and navigate to the “Get Links” area. Next, click on “Get a Link/Banner,” find Miessence and click “Get Links” below our company name. You can also visit the Miessence affiliate page directly here http://www.shareasale.com/a-getmerchantcode.cfm?merchantID=40343. There you can browse through the different Text Links, Banners, and Datafeed Products and get the corresponding HTML code. When you add that text link, banner or product to your website, it will be tagged with your unique ShareASale affiliate ID.

Am I obligated to place a certain number of links on my website?
No. There is neither a minimum nor any limit. We encourage you to use as many as necessary and appropriate to improve click-through and conversion rates. We have found that a creative banner along with a text link or Miessence logo improves effectiveness.

What if I already know HTML and need some advanced help linking?
We are happy to help you with any additional questions you may have. Just contact us for more information.

How does the affiliate program know when I should receive credit for an order?
ShareASale tracks a cookie that is automatically applied to the computer of a person who clicks on a banner or text link that has your affiliate ID number embedded within it. Each banner or link that you create is specifically tagged with your ShareASale affiliate ID number, letting us know that you deserve commission on the sales you send our way. You can access all of these banners and links by logging in your ShareASale Account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available.

These links can be used from any website, put directly into a browser or emailed out in the case of text links. You can test a link by copying and pasting it into your browser. If you are directed to the Miessence website, the link is working. Do not copy and paste a landing page url from our website (i.e. www.miessence.com?SSAID=123456) and confuse it for an affiliate link, since it will not track properly. All affiliate links begin with “http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfmB=…”

When and how do I get paid?
ShareASale will pay your monthly commission by either check or direct deposit around the 22nd of the following month. Your account needs to have a balance of $50 or more before the end of the month in order to receive a payment. Otherwise, it will continue to roll forward into the next month until the $50 minimum is reached and we can issue a payment.

What sales and revenue reports does ShareASale provide?
Each transaction is logged on ShareASale servers and is available for review in detail. ShareASale will provide real-time tracking of your clicks, sales and commission. Please do not contact Miessence for this information, since we cannot access your account. Use the links below to find some of the most useful reports, but please note that these links will only work if you are an approved affiliate.

Because your ShareASale account is private, we do not have control over or access to this information. If you have any other issues with your ShareASale account, please contact the ShareASale support team.

What is your return days or cookie policy?
If a visitor comes to our website from your website but does not purchase on that visit, you can still earn commission on sales from that customer if they return and make a purchase within 90 days. This works even if they navigate directly to the website on a return visit as long as they haven’t deleted their cookies.

Do I earn a commission if someone clicks on a product on my site and then buys a different product?
Yes. You will receive full credit for any product that is purchased by a customer who clicks on your affiliate link.

How do product returns affect my commission?
If a customer returns a product for a refund, or if credit card charges are reversed due to a dispute or credit card fraud, your account will be debited the commission. But don’t worry—customers love our products and we have a very low return rate.
