Earn commissions for customers you refer to GoSt-Barefoots!

Once you refer a customer to us, you’ll get commissions on all their future orders, not just the first. There are, however, other good reasons as well to become our marketing-partner!

The GoSt Affiliate Program

Now you can be rewarded for telling people about the Paleos® #chainmailshoes.

When someone you refer to our website purchases any product, you’ll earn a 10% commission. And if they ever come back and order again (and a LOT of our customers are repeat buyers), you’ll continue to earn a commission for the life of that customer.

How does it work?

Simple:

  1. You become an Affiliate and we give you a special Affiliate URL (like: www.gost-barefoots.com/de/?xx_aref=46249bcc69281de430958) that you can tell people about, as well as ads you can place on websites (yours, if you have one, or other people’s if you don’t).
  2. A visitor goes to your Affiliate URL or clicks on an ad that directs them to that URL.
  3. The visitor comes to our site, and a “cookie” is placed in their browser and we record their computer’s IP address for tracking purposes. This way we know that you are the person who referred them to us.
  4. If the visitor orders, you’ll be credited with a 10% commission on that sale (there are a few more details about how this works in the Terms & Conditions section of the Affiliate Sign Up process).
  5. You will receive commission payouts on the 5th of every month (if your balance is at least €20) via PayPal (again, there are a few specifics about timing in the T&C section).

1. What do I need to become an affiliate?

Nothing! Except your desire to be an affiliate.

You don’t even need a website (although having your own website helps). You can promote our product via search engines, postings in internet forums, or simply email to all your friends and people you know with your affiliate link to our product.

All you need to do is to send a visitor to our site via a special link (called ‘affiliate link’). If you’re the referring Affiliate, and if he or she buys anything from us, you will get 10% of the sale value.


2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?

The program is powered by Affiliate Pro, a leading affiliate tracking software. It uses the combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on his or her computer and tracks his/her computer’s IP address. When the visitor pays for the product, our affiliate system checks for the cookie (if not found, checks for their IP address) to assign you the proper credit.

This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked. Affiliate Pro is used by a multitude of Internet merchants and affiliates world-wide.


3. How is the payment handled?

We pay via PayPal.

There is a minimum payment value of €20. To allow a grace period for returns, commissions are credited to your account 30 days after the order, and paid on the 5th of the following month.

For example, if someone you refer to our site makes a purchase on January 20th, the commission is credited to you on February 20th, and paid on March 5th. Payments are issued in Euro (€).

“Super Affiliates” may negotiate these terms (A “super affiliate is one who generates consistent and significant commissions).


4. How do I set up an account?

Setting up an account is very easy and it’s completely FREE. You don’t have to pay for becoming an affiliate.

  • If you already have a user account with us, log in and click "My affiliate account" on the left and fill in the form to apply as affiliate. Log in to your User Account.
  • If you don't have a user account with us, you can do both at the same time: create the regular user account and, with a click to "Become an Affiliate/Partner", also the form to apply as affiliate. Click here to sign up.

As our affiliate, you will have your own control panel where you can see detailed statistics of traffic and sales you referred, news and a choice of widgets, banners and text links.

The GoSt banners and advertising material in your account

Then you only need to place an affiliate link, banner, text link or other link at any website or place ads in pay-per-click search engines, so you can start sending customers to our web site.


5. What is the affiliate link?

The Affiliate link is a special URL where you should be sending the visitors. For example, www.gost-barefoots.com/de/?xx_aref=46249bcc69281de430958). You will get your affiliate link as well as advertisements you can use after you are approved as an affiliate. At this point, also your control panel will also be activated.

Certainly.
