The bodybuilding4idiots.com affiliate program is administered through a 3rd party affiliate management company called Clickbank (www.clickbank.com).

To enroll in the affiliate program, all affiliates must sign up on the clickbank website at https://ssl.clickbank.net/signup/. The bodybuilding4idiots.com affiliate program is governed by all rules, regulations, terms and conditions dictated by clickbank.com's "client contract": http://clickbank.com/legal/.

Affiliate Site

An affiliate account can be created by filling out and submitting the clickbank affiliate sign up form here: http://secure.clickbank.net/signup.cgi?hop=thinthighs.clickbank. On that page, each new affiliate will be asked to choose a clickbank account name (also called a clickbank "nickname"), consisting of 5 ? 10 letters and digits). This clickbank nickname will be used in the affiliate hoplink.

Commissions

Affiliates will receive 75% of the revenue as a commission from orders placed through properly coded Affiliate links (unless noted otherwise for a particular product), LESS the charges outlined in the ClickBank accounting policy page: http://www.clickbank.com/paychecks.html.

For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered. Word of mouth referrals will not result in an affiliate commission being generated. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate.

Payment

ClickBank will send a check for the applicable commissions within the framework of their payment policies: http://www.clickbank.com/paychecks.html. If any order that generated an affiliate commission is returned by the customer, or if there are any returned checks or charge backs, the amount will be deducted by ClickBank from the next payment due to the affiliate.
