By becoming an affiliate partner and promoting Cinemagraph Pro to your audience, you will earn 10% recurring commission on all sales you generate!

The online Flixel store is available on flixel.com or the in-app store in apps downloaded from flixel.com. When someone purchases a monthly or yearly plan using your referral link or coupon code, you will be credited with the sale. 

In this guide you will learn how to navigate the affiliate website and use all available features. While this guide outlines all features the program offers, you can start earning commission by completing two simple tasks once approved:

  1. Add a payout method
  2. Share your referral link and/or coupon code

Visual storytellers use cinemagraphs to capture attention and drive results. Using cinemagraphs and other visual assets will help your promotions get noticed, especially on social media.

Dashboard

Your affiliate home page contains an overview of your recent clicks, conversions, geo distribution, and commissions.

A click occurs when someone lands on the Flixel website by clicking on your affiliate link. You can view the number of clicks for the last 28 days on the dashboard or go to the reporting page for more data.

A conversion occurs when someone purchases a plan using your affiliate link or coupon code. You can view the number of conversions for the last 28 days on the dashboard or go to the reporting and conversions pages for more data.

An impression occurs when an image banner available on the assets page loads on a website. Because impressions on video banners and social posts are not available at this time, we will not be tracking impressions.

Geo distribution indicates the number of clicks and conversions from each geographical region. You can view the number of clicks and conversions by clicking on the expand icon on the dashboard or go to the reporting page for more data.

When a conversion occurs, your commission will be pending approval. You can view the number of pending commissions along with your commission amount on the dashboard or go to the conversions page. Commissions will be approved within 3-5 business days and payouts occur monthly. You will be notified via email when your commissions and payouts are updated.


Reporting

The reporting page is where you can track the performance of clicks and conversions and review your conversion and commission amounts. Click on the dropdown menu to review your performance data for clicks, conversions, conversion amount, or commission amount. Click on the date range menu to apply a periodic or custom date range to your reports. 

Date | Review your performance data and amounts by date, week, month, or year.

Acquisition | If you choose to add sources, you can track their performance from the sidebar. Sources are channels you can use to promote your referral link, such as a website or social media. Using the source feature will allow to track which channels are driving the most clicks and conversions. 

Audience | Review your performance data and amounts by country.


Assets

Assets include your referral link and coupon code along with marketing materials you can use to promote our plans to your audience.

Referral Link | Copy your referral link to share with your audience or share it on connected channels directly from the affiliate website. Connected channels include Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and email. You will earn 10% commission when someone purchases a plan within 45-days of clicking on your link. Click on the advanced menu to permanently change your referral link or change the source if applicable.

Coupon Code | Copy your coupon code to share a 10% discount with your audience. You will earn 10% commission on the discounted price when someone purchases a plan using your coupon code. Please note that your customer will only receive a discount if the coupon code was applied at checkout on the online Flixel store. If your customer purchases a plan from your referral link without entering a coupon code, they will not receive a discount and you will earn commission on the full price.

Marketing Assets | Using visual assets will help your promotions get noticed, especially on social media. Ready-to-share assets including banners, Facebook posts, and Tweets will be available on the affiliate website. Downloadable assets including logotypes and ads will be available on the dashboard and getting started email.

Conversions

The conversions page contains an overview of all your conversions and commissions. This information is also available on the reporting page.


Sources

The source tab is where you can add channels you use to promote your referral link, such as a website or social media. This is an optional feature which is recommended if you want to learn which channels are driving the most conversions. You can add as many sources as you like and they can be single channel sources or groups. Examples of single channel sources would be a specific landing page, blog post, or social share. Examples of groups could include all blog posts or social posts. 

Click Add Source and select website or other. If you select a website, such as your personal website or a specific web page containing your referral link, enter a title for reference and the URL. If you want to add another source, such as a social channel or email campaign, you can simply enter a title.

In order to track your sources, you must place the unique referral link on the corresponding channel. For example, if you added a source for a specific blog post, you have to add the blog post referral link on the associated web page as opposed to the default referral link which appears on the assets page.

To find the unique referral link for each of your added sources, click on the advanced menu on the assets page and select the specific source. Copy the updated referral link and paste it on the associated channel. 


Payouts

The payouts page contains an overview of all your payouts. Once we have approved your commissions, a payout will be generated. We will then use the payment details you provided to pay this amount to you. Payouts will occur on a monthly basis.


Account

The account page is where you can select a payout method and update your profile. Some profile fields were required upon signup and can be updated anytime.

Payout Methods | Select Payout Methods to select a payout method for your commission. Your options for payouts include: PayPal, Payoneer, Venmo, Bank (International, IBAN, UK, Australia), and Automated Clearing House (ACH). 

Let us know if you have any questions about the required fields for your selected payout method. You can also contact your service provider or bank for assistance.
