WebSales Partner Program FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions
Is the WebSales Partner Program an Affiliate Program?
Yes… and no! Our WebSales Partner Program operates like an Affiliate Program in that we pay commission to you if someone you refer to our site through the link we give you makes a purchase. But there the similarity stops. Most affiliate programs are not for luxury items with a story behind them or for a brand that is so personal and which is all about the custom experience. No affiliate program offers commissions like we do because they don’t attract the caliber of partner or value the importance of a strong, pre-qualified contact list like we do.

If a visitor comes to our website from your link 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 the period known as ‘cookie days’. This works even if they navigate directly to the website on a return visit (as long as they haven't deleted their cookies).

Yes. You will receive full credit for any product that is purchased by a customer who clicks on your 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—we have very low return rate.
