ANSWER: At this time, only hosting orders that are linked directly to an affiliate hyperlink are counted toward our affiliate program. We sincerely appreciate any referrals that you send our way, but simply don’t have the time or resources to manage confirming affiliate sales through other means (such as confirming a sale with new customer via email/phone, and crediting back to the referrer, etc). We apologize for the inconvenience, and urge all affiliates to use their link whenever recommending LittleBizzy to a friend or acquaintance. In addition, ordering through your own affiliate link by setting up a new account with the same/similar name is also not credited. By making a good faith honest effort to refer new people using our automated linking system, it truly helps all parties make the program a happier, easier process. Thanks ahead of time!
