A Guide to Being an Affiliate with Plaine Promoters

What does it mean to be an Affiliate?

  • Affiliates are individuals who use Plaine Products, love it, and want to get others to join them in eliminating single use plastics while enjoying outstanding products. Plaine Promoters spread the word about our products and get 10% from every sale they generate through their unique link.

  • Affiliates are given a unique URL for their audience to access Plaine Products, which tracks visitors and credits 10% of any sale to the affiliate. The URL code is on the main page in your affiliate account. Affiliates can also request a coupon code that is tied to their affiliate account.

  • You’ll receive emails with Quarterly gift box offers and sneak peaks to upcoming sales, launches, product news

  • We’ll reach out with content creation opportunities & provide access to graphics and assets to share on your page

  • We ask that you post about us (and share your link/code) at least once a quarter (every 3 months). Please fill out the content submission form each time you post, so we can show you some love and track your activity so you can get as many products as possible in your quarterly Plaine Products gift box!

  • All of this, and more is covered in the Welcome Kit. Please also review the Terms of Use for the affiliate program.
