Email marketing software provider AWeber made some important changes to their affiliate program.
AWeber has been around for a while (as long as I've been in the business). If you're an affiliate marketer marketing to other marketers, you'll be interested in the modifications as the new policies have been influenced by actual aWeber affiliates - a nice touch. AWeber surveyed its affiliates for feedback on several key issues, including commissions and cookie length, and made some adjustments to the program based on the responses.
Changes to the AWeber affiliate program now include:
- Commission are increasing to 30%
- Second-tier commissions are being phased out
- Affiliate cookies will be one year
- Minimum check payout will be $30 for US affiliates and $50 for non-US affiliates.
All of these changes will be effective on April 8, 2009. The only exception will be the PayPal payment option, which will be available in the near future.
