What is an affiliate program?

An affiliate program is a partnership where a company compensates external parties for generating sales or traffic through marketing efforts. Participants, known as affiliates, use their platforms to promote the company's products or services. They earn a commission for each sale made through their unique referral links. This setup offers a way for individuals or businesses to earn revenue by promoting products they believe in without the need to develop or stock products themselves.

How do I join the Impact Radius Affiliate Program?

  • Create an IR account - If you still need to set up an account in Impact Radius, go to Bluehost’s partner program to create your profile. We recommend having all your tax and company information handy to complete the form. At the end of the process, you must validate your account through email to ensure you have applied to the new program.
  • For existing account - If you already have an account created in Impact Radius, go to Bluehost partner program login page to sign up. Click on Log in to access your existing Impact Radius account.

What is the application process?

During regular business hours and on non-holiday days, we strive to approve applications after a manual assessment in around 72 hours.

What are the affiliate program's commission payout terms?

About 45 days after the end of the month in which the credit is recorded (or a qualified transaction was made), commissions are processed.

Our Affiliate program only offers a one-time referral commission of $65 for each qualified customer who purchases any of our 12 or 36-month hosting packages upfront.

Bluehost.com, has the right, in its sole discretion, to withhold and/or reject commission generated for accounts that appear to be fraudulent or have a high cancellation rate.

Where do I find my new Impact Radius tracking link?

After you've been accepted into the Bluehost Affiliate Program, you can find your tracking link by going to your Impact Radius dashboard and copying the link in the Create a Link box.

If you want the link to take your audience to a different landing page than in the Enter Landing Page field, you can generate a new one. Just indicate a landing page on Bluehost to which you'd like your link to send your visitors and hit Create. Your new link will appear below where it says, "Use the URL below."



Where do I access my banner ads?

To obtain your banner ads’ custom HTML code, simply log in to your Impact Radius dashboard, https://app.impact.com/login.user, and navigate to Content > Assets > Images. Click on the Get Ad Code or Get Tracking Link button that corresponds with the ad you want to use, and a pop-up should open that contains your custom ad's HTML code. You will install this code on your website to display your ad.

How do I set up my withdrawal settings?

You can only get paid by setting up how you want to receive your money.

Select Balance"0.00">Bank Account in the top nav menu. You must set up two-factor authentication to access these settings. Next to Payment Method, select how you want to be paid - PayPal or Electronic Funds Transfer. If you select Electronic Funds Transfer, you must fill in some bank details. You must enter the email connected to your PayPal account if you select PayPal. There will also be a 2% processing fee that is capped at $20.

How do I submit my tax form through Impact Radius?

Affiliates are required to submit a tax form if they meet the following criteria:

  • Any partner based in the United States.
  • Any non-US affiliate working with a brand based in the United States.

Select Balance "$0.00"> Tax Documents in the top nav menu.

Select the tax form option that fits your account type:

  • Form W-9 is for any partner based in the United States.
  • Form W-8 BEN is for individual foreign partners (i.e., not associated with or representing a company, organization, or entity) working with any brand based in the United States.
  • Form W-8 BEN-E is for foreign companies, organizations, or entities working as partners with any brand in the United States.

Select Continue to use the -app DocuSign secured frame to fill out the tax form fields highlighted in red. Double-check your entered info and select Finish to submit your tax form.

Why is my credit (action) not tracked?

Any actions tracked automatically have a 2+ hour delay from when the action is completed to when it will appear on your account dashboard.

Impact.com relies on Bluehost to upload the actions to the platform for any action tracked manually. Since this is a manual process, delays can be expected.

Actions can also be reversed, making the action ineligible for payout and moving it to another area in impact.com.

If an action occurs but does not appear on your Impact Radius account within 48 hours (about two days), reach out directly to [email protected]. Please include your client's full name, email address, and domain.

I was denied for not having enough content/traffic

To guarantee that the affiliate and Bluehost have a successful partnership, we demand that applications be submitted with a working URL, appropriate content, and some traffic directed to the site.

These are at the exclusive discretion of our affiliate team.
