Is there a cost to join or participate as an Affiliate Partner in the Summit Learning Institute Affiliate Marketing Program?

No, Summit Learning Institute does not charge a fee to join or participate as an Affiliate Partner in its Affiliate Marketing Program.

When will I get paid out? 

Because your school owner is using the Monthly Payment Gateway, you will be paid approximately 30 days after the end of the sales month. Payouts are processed by Teachable and are always made on the 1st of the month, or the next business day.

How does affiliate attribution work? 

A cookie is created in a user’s browser whenever they land on a school page with your affiliate code attached to the URL. Any purchase the user makes on the school during the cookie period will be attributed to you, and you will receive the set commission of the sales price.

Is attribution first touch or last touch? 

Affiliate attribution is last touch. If a student purchases a different course within the same school through a different affiliate, the credit for the purchase will go towards the new affiliate.

How does attribution work for recurring pricing plans? 

If a student purchases a course that is billed monthly (i.e. subscription or payment plan) using your affiliate code, you will receive your commission every month the student has an active subscription.

How can I control which school notifications I receive? 

You can choose to opt in or out of enrollment notifications sent to your email address. To do so, visit the Settings tab in your affiliate dashboard (located in the lower left-hand corner).

Can I generate an affiliate link for third-party sites? 

No. You can only generate URL links for courses (and their corresponding sales pages) that have been assigned to you in the Dashboard.

How are taxes handled at the end of the year for Affiliate Partners? 

We partner with a third-party company to distribute 1099 Tax Forms to our Affiliate Partners. The 1099 Tax Forms are generally sent out at the end of January every year.

We're very glad you've made it to the end of this important document.

Thank you for partnering with Summit Learning Institute. You can always re-visit our Affiliate Marketing Program terms and conditions in the future and if you have any questions you can send an email to [email protected] for support.

An Affiliate Partner found to violate any of these Terms and Conditions will have their participation in our Affiliate Marketing Program terminated immediately and without warning.
