Affiliate Registration

We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. The review process may take a few days – we appreciate your patience!

If you’re approved, awesome! You’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote NuPasta via referral links. Check out your private Affiliate Area for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!

Commissions and payouts

The payout is $3.50 CAD/case for Canada affiliates and $3.00 USD/case for USA affiliates with purchases made using your referral link (8 packs of NuPasta in each case). We payout affiliate commissions via paypal payment to the provided payment email on the first week of each month.

As we have a 30-day money back guarantee, we only pay commissions that are older than 30 days. The minimum payout balance is $30.00. And there’s no maximum payout balance, so go nuts!

In order to receive a payout for your referrals, you must register your bank account with our payouts service.

We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases. We do not offer recurring referrals.

Referral cookie lifetime

When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase NuPasta, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

A referral won’t be awarded if:

  • The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
  • The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).

Refunded purchases

Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $30.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate commission rejection. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:

  • The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  • The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

Affiliate news and updates

By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from NuPasta. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the NuPasta affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote NuPasta. As an affiliate you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won’t spam you, ever – promise!

Affiliate application rejection/inappropriate websites

We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Below are reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices, or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright
  • Affiliate applications for websites that we do not believe are aligned with our industry or business
  • Affiliate applicants with websites that re-sell any of our products
  • Websites considered inappropriate by NuPasta

Questions regarding your application

When you apply to become an affiliate we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:

  • We didn’t understand something in your application, or,
  • We’d like to learn a bit more about how you will promote NuPasta and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 14 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.

Dormant affiliate accounts

Please don’t leave us! We encourage all of our affiliates to actively promote NuPasta to keep earning referrals. An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated in a 6-month period and it will be temporarily deactivated. But we don’t even want to go there right now, right?! Let’s work together to help you start earning some cash!

NuPasta Affiliate Program Policies

Allowed promotional methods

We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to NuPasta and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our affiliates mention NuPasta in posts and/or blogs.

Here are a few examples of good promotional methods:

  • Tell clients, customers or friends about NuPasta, and give them your affiliate referral link
  • Write a review or a blog post about NuPasta and link to our site with your referral link
  • Reach out to a broad audience with your social network accounts. Tweet about us on Twitter with your affiliate referral link, post about us on Facebook with your affiliate link, or communicate to your Linkedin followers about NuPasta with your affiliate link. Spam-free promotion is a great way to get more referrals!
  • Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses, and using your referral link in your replies.

Prohibited promotional methods

We love and back our product 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take seriously. Prohibited promotional methods:

  • NuPasta may not be promoted on coupon sites
    Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for NuPasta, so this method adds no value to NuPasta.
  • Paid advertising using your affiliate link is prohibited
    Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.

  • Promoting incorrect or misleading information
    Any promotional activity that shares incorrect or misleading information will result in affiliate account deactivation. This includes false information intended to click-bait potential customers. If you are unsure of the correct information or details for promoting NuPasta, please contact us (info@nupasta.com).
  • Any type of spam is prohibited

    Links, ads, emails, comments… any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote NuPasta. P.S. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it’s spam.

  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited
    This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated.

  • We’re flattered, but please don’t pretend to be professionally associated with NuPasta
    Affiliates aren’t employees of NuPasta
  • Pretending to actually be NuPasta is prohibited
    Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official NuPasta site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them into iframes).
  • Again, false promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by NuPasta is prohibited.

If you’re unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed may be considered prohibited, please ask us.

Consequences of prohibited promotional methods
If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected and we may disable your affiliate account. We reserve the right to do this and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs.

The important stuff
By accepting these terms and conditions you are providing your nonlegal agreement to abide by them. By registering and being approved as an affiliate in our affiliate program you agree that your commissions are subject to approval before they are accepted and subsequently paid.

The affiliate relationship does not represent a professional or formal agreement, and as an affiliate you are not an employee of NuPasta (Canada) Inc. and/or NuPasta (USA) Inc.. You agree that this is not a legally binding relationship and as a result may not take legal action against NuPasta (Canada) Inc. and/or NuPasta (USA) Inc.. These affiliate terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

Phew! Sound good? Great! Thanks for taking the time to read through these T’s and C’s and for agreeing to them. We can’t wait to have you on board!
