Update: The increased affiliate commission rate has been extended to Friday, Nov. 30, at 11:59 p.m. eastern.
If you are an Out of the Sandbox affiliate program member, well done — you’re already earning 15 percent on approved Shopify theme sales.
And now, you can get your clients up and running on a new Shopify theme — just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday — and enjoy a little extra commission for it.
Now through the end of October, all Shopify theme purchases you refer to Out of the Sandbox will be paid at 25 percent upon approval — instead of the usual 15 percent.
That means if you sell a copy of our most powerful theme, Turbo, you can potentially earn $87.50 instead of the normal $52.50.
All active affiliate accounts in good standing will automatically be adjusted to the new commission rate as of Saturday, Oct. 6 at 12:01 a.m. eastern. Purchases must be made by Wednesday, Oct. 31 Friday, Nov. 30, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. eastern to be eligible.
Unfortunately, previous referrals cannot be adjusted.
Please be aware that, to be eligible for this increase rate, your sale must be automatically tracked by our affiliate tracking software — we are unable to offer courtesy credits during this promotion.
You or your customers are welcome to use any eligible discount codes with your order, though keep in mind this will likely reduce your commission slightly.
Also, please be aware that Out of the Sandbox recently increased the minimum approved commission balance to $100 instead of $50, so you will need to wait until your account reaches $100 before it will be submitted for payment to be issued.
Keep in mind that this will typically mean you’ll need to send at least two or three themes at the 25 percent rate before payment is issued.
It can also take 30-90 days for your payment to be issued once it has been recorded as a successful conversion, so please do not contact our support team about payment status until at least 90 days have passed after your account reaches the $100 minimum.
Also keep in mind all affiliate transactions are subject to our affiliate program terms and conditions.
