Do you have an audience that you think can benefit from ShipBob’s fulfillment services?
Please provide us with the following information to get started.
These ShipBob Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions and any other terms referenced herein (the "Agreement") contain the complete terms and conditions between us, ShipBob Inc. ("ShipBob") and you (the “Affiliate”), regarding your application to and participation in, the ShipBob Affiliate Program (the " Program") as an affiliate of ShipBob, and the establishment of links from your website to our website, shipbob.com. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Affiliate may, from time to time, refer new users to use ShipBob’s fulfillment services platform and receive a commission for each such referral.
Purpose. ShipBob is in the business of providing ecommerce fulfillment for online stores. ShipBob empowers businesses to offer fast shipping and maintain control over inventory, orders, and shipments. ShipBob is desirous of gaining additional clients/customers for their order fulfillment services where we are the best solution. The affiliate partner is in a position to refer potential clients/customers to ShipBob.
Enrollment. To begin the enrollment process for the Program, you must complete the sign-up process at https://shipbob.postaffiliatepro.com/affiliates/signup.php#SignupForm. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection in a timely manner. We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that you are not suitable for the Program for any reason. ShipBob, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to notify any prospective referrer of their rejection or removal from the Program at any time.
Term. This Agreement shall commence upon the approval email confirmation into the ShipBob Affiliate Program.
Referral Arrangement. Upon the Effective Date of this Agreement, Affiliate may refer potential clients/customers to ShipBob and ShipBob will pay Affiliate a fee for these referrals based upon the agreed-upon Compensation.
Compensation. Unless otherwise separately agreed upon by us in writing, you will earn a commission of $30 payable in USD for each new referral meeting the following criteria:
We will pay all earned commissions on a monthly basis to your designated Paypal account, check or ACH. A commission will have been earned once the referral ships its first order with ShipBob. ShipBob shall pay Affiliate within thirty (30) days of a completed referral, where a completed referral will be the engagement of the new client/customer or definitive action that the referral will not become a new client/customer.
Confidentiality. During the course of this Agreement, it may be necessary for ShipBob to share proprietary information, including trade secrets, industry knowledge, and other confidential information, to Affiliate in order for Affiliate to seek out potential referrals. Affiliate will not share any of this proprietary information at any time. Affiliate also will not use any of this proprietary information for his/her personal benefit at any time. This section remains in full force and effect even after termination of the Agreement by it’s natural termination or the early termination by either party.
Affiliate Website Restrictions.
