Affiliate Program Rules

The Peak Design Affiliate Program is our way of giving back to super-users of our gear who want to share our products with their friends and followers. Here's a run-down of how it works, what the rules are, and FAQs.

How does it work?

Simple. You signup on this page. It's free and open for anybody to join. One you sign up you'll get an email with a unique link and code. You share those with your friends and followers. When people use your link/code to make a purchase from this site, they get a discount and you get a commission.

Affiliate Program Rules

These rules are designed to make the Peak Design Affiliate Program fair for all Affiliates. If we find or suspect that you are not following these rules (intentionally or accidentally) we may suspend or cancel your account. We also reserve the right to alter your commission. We sincerely appreciate the support of our Affiliates...some of you are the most loyal and tenured Peak Design users in the world. If we do feel the need to alter your account status, please understand that we are doing so in the spirit of fairness to all Affiliates, customers, and Peak Design partners.

1. We kindly ask that you do not make your affiliate link (or the notion that you have one) publicly Google-able. In other words, if somebody can type "Peak Design discount" (or similar terms) into a search engine and easily find your affiliate link, that violates the rules of this program. Our Affiliate Program is designed to reward influencers for sharing our products with their audience. If we suspect that your discount link has become public knowledge (i.e. shoppers who are not part of your sphere of influence can easily find it) we reserve the right suspend/cancel your account or alter your commission.

2. You are responsible for keeping your link/code off of coupon aggregation and other 3rd party sites. That means that you cannot post your affiliate details to these sites. That also means you are responsible for how your friends and followers use your link/code. When sharing your link/code with others, please take care to inform them that the discount cannot be shared publicly. Again, if we suspect that your affiliate details have become public knowledge we have the right to suspend or cancel your account.

3. Only share your affiliate link through channels that you own and manage. If you have a code, you can only share it privately. You can share your affiliate link in the description of a Youtube review you posted, or at the end of a product review you made. But you can't post it in a public Reddit thread, for example. If you have a discount code, you can only share it through completely private channels, like an email newsletter to your subscribers, or in a special section of your site that people must login to access.

4. You must disclose to us where you are sharing your coupon link/code. You do this on the Affiliate Program application in the field called "Referring Website." If we see suspicious activity on your account, we may reach out to you at any time ask you where you're link/code is being shared. If you do not disclose where you are sharing your link/code, we reserve the right to suspend or cancel your account.

5. Running digital advertising with your affiliate link/code is prohibited. We kindly ask that you do not run ads on Facebook, Adwords, or any other digital platform that contain your affiliate link/code. In general, we prohibit any 3rd party marketing efforts that mimic the Peak Design brand. It's important for us to ensure all people have a great and consistent experience with our brand. 

6. Discounts and commissions do not apply to items that are already on sale or discounted, such as bundles. This policy is in place to prevent the prices on our site from becoming exorbitantly low, which is unfair to our retail partners.

7. Commission payout will happen once a month, typically at the end of the month. If you wish to be paid out, you must login to your Affiliate account and click the button to request a payout.

8. All payout happens through Paypal in USD. Provided that you have a Paypal account, you will receive no payment fees.

9. We reserve the right to cancel or alter your (or everyone's) Affiliate commission, discount or payout schedule at any time. We love this program and we love giving back to our most vocal, evangelical customers and fans. But for a variety of reasons known and unknown, we just want to let you know that we could change things up in the future. We also welcome any and all feedback to the program. If you have something to share, please email us at info@peakdesign.com.
