Our sophisticated system caters to a network of accountants in the UK allowing prospective clients to set their price range and invite accountants to quote them on the work required. Outside of the quotation window lead purchases can be made ad-hoc or via auction style bidding. All leads have a minimum value set at creation and affiliates are paid a 30 percent share of the value. A typical valid lead purchased by an accountant for 10 tokens would result in a gross affiliate fee payment of £3. Everything is trackable online via your affiliate account.
Invoices are raised one month after the end of the previous month. E.g. Fees for valid leads referred in the month of April would be paid to your bank in the first week of June.
Registering is quick and easy. Just click the button below and provide a few details about you and your bank details for payment.
We will verify your account details and activate your affiliate account within one working day.
1. How do I start earning?
Begin by registering your affiliate account online. Just enter your details and we will verify your account and activate your referral account. Once you have access to your account, please visit the resources section to get the code for our text links or banner links.
2. What is a valid lead referral?
All you have to do is integrate our text or banner links into your website or application. Once a visitor to your website/app clicks on the banner, they will be taken to our advice request form and a cookie will be generated and set in their browser. The cookie lasts 30 days and any advice request provided within that period will be attributed to your affiliate account. Leads are then tendered to our accountants for purchase – once purchased a period of 7 days is given for the accountant to validate the lead or mark it as invalid due to a false phone number or email address. Post the 7 day validation period the lead will be marked as valid and your affiliate account balance credited with the corresponding referral fee.
3. How are purchase token values translated to fees?
We currently map each token to GBP 0.30 for affiliates. There is no VAT included.
4. When do I get paid?
We issue invoices one a deferred monthly basis – for example all validated leads from May 2016 will have an invoice generated on the first day of July 2016 and a payment transferred to your bank account within 7 days. Please make sure add your bank account details to your secure online account once you start referring visitors.
5. How do I check how much I have earned?
Your online account provides all you need to know about your referrals, your invoices and payments. The figures are updated daily.
