Web hosting provider The Planet announced on Monday it has enhanced the commission structure of its affiliate program, in response to the program’s significant success.
Registered affiliates will now receive a one-time, 100 percent commission on the referred customer’s total monthly recurring order value. The Planet is also shortening the waiting period for affiliate commission-payout, reducing it from three months to 45 days after a referred customer places an order with The Planet.
“Since our January launch, our affiliate program has seen tremendous success,” says James P. Treuting, vice president of sales and operations with The Planet. “Making these improvements to our already competitive commission structure is another way to thank our partners for referring customers to The Planet.”
Launched in January, The Planet’s affiliate program provides commissions for both customers and non-customers who refer new business to the company. Prior to that, The Planet launched a three-tiered reseller program last November that provides Web hosting resellers with multiple options for building their businesses.
In May, The Planet announced it had added Internet products company Directi to its affiliates program. Share-A-Sale is The Planet?s affiliate network partner.
Affiliates can earn money by referring customers to The Planet on a commission basis. The Planet says it has optimized its website for affiliate-related traffic, as well as provides affiliates with marketing materials and promotions.
Affiliates can also track their conversion statistics through a specialized administrative portal.
