What is the PinemeadowGolf.com Affiliate Program?
The PinemeadowGolf.com Affiliate Program is our way to reward you for referring customers to our site. Since you already know about us and like us, you are our best source of new business. If you have a web site, we want to pay you for the business you send us. To help you do that we'll provide you with buttons, banners, and text links, which you can post on your own web site. When a visitor clicks-through and purchases on PinemeadowGolf.com, we'll pay you a 10% commission on that sale.
Can anyone apply to the PinemeadowGolf.com Affiliate Program?
You bet. PinemeadowGolf.com would love to work with all sites, from large commercial sites to individual's web pages, and everything in between. Anyone with a web site may submit an application. We review each and every potential Affiliate web site before accepting it into our program. We reserve the right to refuse or terminate a site at any time if it contains objectionable material, including pornography, explicit language or content, or support for violent groups. We welcome Affiliate sites from anywhere in the world because we ship our products all over the world.
How much money can I earn?
PinemeadowGolf.com pays you according to how much customers coming from your site buy from us. The more of your referrals who buy from us, the more you get paid. We pay a 10% commission for all product sales, so if 10 customers come to us from your site and they each buy $150 on golf products, you earn $150.00! It is that simple.
How much does it cost to join your Affiliate Program?
Absolutely nothing. It is free to become a PinemeadowGolf.com Affiliate. There is no application fee and no minimum sales requirement. All you have to do to join is complete the Affiliate Application and accept the terms of the Operating Agreement. To join now, click here
How does the Affiliate Program work?
It's simple. You place links to PinemeadowGolf.com on your web site. When someone follows those links to our site and joins our program, we note that customer was referred by you. If that person buys from us within the next 45 days, we will pay you a commission. As a PinemeadowGolf.com Affiliate, you're in complete control. Use your Web site to promote PinemeadowGolf.com as much as you'd like. You will receive your commissions each month, and you can track your earnings daily.
What does "customer" mean?
A Customer is defined as a PinemeadowGolf.com customer who has come from your site to our site and then makes a purchase at our site within 45 days of coming to us from your site. There can only be one referring site, so if the customer comes to us from more than one Affiliate site within the 45 days, the last referring site gets credit for the customer.
How can I track and monitor the referrals credited to my site?
PinemeadowGolf.com has teamed with Commission Junction, a leader in third-party affiliate marketing programs, to provide affiliates with trusted third party tracking, real-time reporting, and monthly commission checks, to handle all of our affiliate accounts. Once you sign up for our program, you'll be taken to Commission Junction's site where you'll create your own personal and secure account. Here you can log in at any time to get our banners and links, find out about commissions earned and even learn about how many impressions each of your links has received. All links from your site to PinemeadowGolf.com contain your site's unique Source ID. Every time a user comes to us via your site, we know to credit you. Commission Junction is responsible for tracking and calculating the referral fees that are owed to you. Through a secure server connection, Commission Junction is able to track and gather the information required to ensure you get paid.
How do I create links to PinemeadowGolf.com?
Very easily. We'll provide all the tools you'll need to link directly to PinemeadowGolf.com. Once you sign up for our Affiliate Program, you'll be provided with a variety of banners, buttons and text links which you can add to your site. You can log into your account through Commission Junction at any time to see a list of our available banners. Once logged in, select "PinemeadowGolf.com" in the Current Merchant Affiliate area. You'll now see our information page. Select "Show Links" towards the bottom. Choose your desired link and select "Get HTML." Copy and paste the HTML code to your web page. It's that easy! No programming skills are needed.
How many links can I make to PinemeadowGolf.com?

When do I get paid?
Once you join our program, you'll be able to log into your account at Comission Junction and go the area titled "Generate Report." Here you can see how much you've earned and even download a file if desired. Earnings are automatically sent out every month via check to all Affiliates who have accumulated at least $25 in their account. There are no invoices to send and no data to track — all payments are taken care of by PinemeadowGolf.com and Commission Junction. For those affiliates earning over $600 in a year, 1099's will be issued for tax reporting purposes.
If someone doesn't buy anything, will I still get a commission when they go back to PinemeadowGolf.com?
When a visitor clicks-through your site and visits PinemeadowGolf.com, as long as they make a purchase within 45 days, you will earn a commission.
