What are the rules around pay-per-click (PPC) advertising??


If you utilise pay-per-click advertising “PPC”, you must comply with our PPC policy as follows:

  1. You must not bid on any terms, including any variations or misspellings thereof which are the subject of our Trademarks for search or content-based campaigns on Google, Bing, Facebook or any other network.
  2. You must not use our Trademarks in conjunction with any other keyword (e.g. “LoveCrochet Discount” or “LoveCrochet Promotion”).
  3. You must not use our Trademarks (whether alone or in conjunction with other terms) in your ad title, ad copy, display name or as the display URL or domain names.
  4. You may not direct links to Our Website from any PPC ad or use redirects to achieve the same result. Affiliate links must be directed to an actual page on your Website.
  5. You may not bid in any manner which results in appearing higher than LoveCrochet (or LoveKnitting, whichever is lower) for any search term in position 1-5 in any PPC advertising program auction or sale.
  6. If your PPC campaigns are automated, you remain responsible for ensuring that our Trademarks are excluded from your campaign and that you add our Trademarks as negative keywords. If you do not comply with our PPC policy, you will forfeit all commissions for the prior 30 days and your future commissions will be set to 0% if you use PPC trademark bidding using any of our Trademarks. We also reserve the right to terminate your LoveCrochet Affiliate status without notice.

How do I know I will be paid for my referral?


The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro. Post Affiliate Pro uses combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor pays for the product, affiliate system checks for cookie (if not found, checks for IP address of referral) and credits your account with commission.

This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked.
