The Affiliate Program is a service that allows participating websites to earn commission on activations and select sales referred to Square 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 converts, we’ll keep track and give you a commission on the event.
We accept almost all types of websites that are relevant to our products and do not contain objectionable or offensive materials. Please be aware that Square prohibits use of its payments services for select industries. Refer to Section 1.3 of Square’s Payment Terms for a complete list of Prohibited Industries. We welcome all applications but reserve the right to refuse membership or revoke a membership at any time at our sole discretion.
All of the content on the Square website is protected by copyright. You may only use images that have been provided for affiliate use within the network portal. If you have a special circumstance that requires the use of any photos, product images, or content not included in the network portal, please contact us for written approval prior to the content’s use. In some instances, custom creative may be available upon request.
Impact tracks a cookie that is automatically applied to the computer of a person who clicks a banner or text link that has your account ID number embedded within it. Each banner or link that you create is specifically tagged with your Impact ID number, letting us know that you deserve commission on the activations/sales you send our way. You can access all of these banners and links by logging in to your Impact Account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available.
Impact will pay your monthly commission by either check or direct deposit around the 15th 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.
If a visitor comes to our website from your website but doesn’t convert on that visit, you can still earn commission on sales from that customer if they return and activate within 30 days. Then additional bonus is applied if they complete a revenue generating event within 45 days from activation. This works even if they navigate directly to the website on a return visit as long as they haven’t deleted their cookies.
Select events and product purchases are eligible for commission currently. This is subject to change over time. Please reach out to the dedicated program manager for further detail on current billable events.
Transactions and sales will remain as “pending” until the 15th of the following month to allow us to review and either approve or reject based on the validity of the account activation and/or hardware sale. Reasons for rejected transactions/sales can include but are not limited to: customers returning a product for a refund, invalid account information at sign-up, duplicate tracking, fraudulent sign-ups and/or activations, activations that violate Square’s Terms of Service, or if credit card charges are reversed due to a dispute or credit card fraud.
