For over a decade our affiliate program has enabled detailers to monetize their websites, blogs, social media accounts, forums, and more by referring new customers to Detailed Image.
Effective 10/1/21 we are making an important policy change: Detailed Image store credit will be the only payout option for affiliate referrals. We will no longer offer cash payouts.
Why are you making this change?
Cash payouts are less than 30% of our affiliate payments, but account for the overwhelming majority of time, effort, and risk involved in running the affiliate program. Fraudulent activity is much more likely for cash payments, which means that our team spends a considerable amount of time verifying the authenticity of those referrals prior to making cash payouts.
When will the last cash payout be?
Instead of making our usual cash payout on the 20th of each month, we will be skipping September’s payments and instead issuing one final payment on October 1st.
What happens to my cash account on October 1st?
Affiliates who have their payout type set to cash will be automatically converted to Detailed Image store credit.
What happens if I don’t have the minimum $25 balance for a cash payout on October 1st?
Any pending cash payouts will automatically be converted to credit and immediately applied to your Detailed Image account.
Will credit continue to earn the 15% payout bonus?
Yes! On October 1st the new default affiliate payouts will be updated to reflect the old cash value + 15%.
How is store credit paid out?
Credit payouts are much faster! Credit is applied to your account within one business day of the order shipping through an automated process. If the order ships in multiple shipments, credit is applied after the final package has shipped.
