Frequently Asked Questions
What is an affiliate program? How does it work?
An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (that's you!) drives traffic to a merchant's web site (that's us!) in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor to your site clicks on the affiliate link to our site and completes a purchase, you get a commission on every item they buy!
We have special code/software to provide our affiliates with tracking, reporting, prompt monthly payments, and the flexibility.
Once you sign up for and are accepted to our program, you will then be able to login and access your own personal and secure account. Here you can log in at any time to get our banners and links, find out about commissions earned and even learn about how many impressions each of your links has received.

Who can participate?
Just about anybody! Whether you run a large commercial web site, a small personal blog, a non-profit site, or anything in between you're welcome to apply to join the program. We also welcome owners of opt-in e-mail newsletters.

Does it cost anything to participate?
No! As long as you are an active affiliate, all you need to do is keep linking and collect your commissions.
How are sales tracked from my site?
Once your application is accepted, you will be given a unique affiliate ID as well as custom-formatted links that will ensure that traffic coming from your site is properly tracked. We maintain a 45-day cookie, meaning that if a visitor clicks on a link from your site, you are credited with the sale as long as the visitor purchases within 45 days.
Dragonfly eCigs records all transactions from your site in real time, meaning that all impressions, links, and sales are tracked instantly. The Dragonfly Affiliates Members Area has all of the reports and tracking resources you'll need to see how you're doing. You can use these reports to find out which of your links are performing the best and to optimize your site for maximum sales.
How much will I earn? How and when do I get paid?
All new affiliates can earn commissions 20%, with a cookie length of 45 days. Affiliates who generate consistent results over time may be upgraded to our Gold Program, with 60-day cookies and higher commission rates of 25% or more.
Dragonfly eCigs pays affiliates monthly when the commission balance is $25 or more. The payout day is the first of each month.
Payout method is via Paypal or mailed check, whichever is you preference.
What is a parasite? What is your policy regarding parasites?
The term "parasite" refers to technology (including browser plug ins, helpers, toolbars, popups, etc.) that intercepts and changes an affiliate's link. This technology is also known as "unsolicited commercial software" and is often found in Adware and Spyware software. Parasite activity essentially "hijacks" the affiliates link and the affiliate commission gets redirected to the parasite, instead of the affiliate who rightfully earned it. This type of software is normally installed unknowingly, often without the end user's consent. For an excellent description of parasite software, how it gets installed, and how to remove it, visit Doxdesk.com.
We are committed to preventing any parasites from becoming part of our program. If we determine that any of our affiliates are parasites, they will immediately be inactivated and banned from the program. Please e-mail us if you suspect that one of our affiliates may be a parasite.
