Affiliate Program

Join Our Affiliate Program

How do you join the affiliate program?

To join our affiliate program, simply create an affiliate account with Gates and Friends  below.  Then, you will be sent a customized link. This link can be posted on your personal social media accounts, your own website, sent through an SMS, or even copied and pasted through your own email.

To sign-up click the link below:

You will need to create a PayPal or Venmo account using the same email address you are using for this affiliate account. At the end of the month, we will download a list of all affiliate members, payments due, and PayPal/Venmo will send you your outstanding balance. We will do this before the 5th of each month.

How does this work?

 When a NEW customer - a friend, family member, or anyone else in your network - clicks on your link and makes a purchase, you’ll receive 15% of the pre-tax amount.

What do I need?

You will need to have a PayPal or Venmo account, provide a full name, have a valid personal email address, and then sign up using link provided above.

How do taxes work?

Once an individual makes over $600 in any given calendar year, we are required, by federal law, to send you a 1099 form to claim your wages for tax purposes. That will require us to have your full name, mailing address, and social security number (SSN) given on a Form W 9 once that $600 limit is passed. If your affiliate earnings cross this threshold, you’ll receive a formal request for this info via email. If this information is not provided, the "contractor" may be subject to federal penalty.

What are the rules and restrictions?

Our Affiliate program is designed to allow for supporters of Gates and Friends to grow along with us! We want our fans to have a personal link that can be shared on their personal social media accounts, personal websites, or emails to promote our community - and make some money in the process!

Any use outside of this will be subject to removal without pay. The use of purchasing Google Ads (or any other paid advertising) posted with your personal link is strictly forbidden. Any individual disguising any websites, Facebook pages, Instagram pages, participation in discount or promo websites, or anything similar with the intensive purpose to resemble or any other proprietary Gates and Friends branding is strictly forbidden. If these terms are breached, the account will be shut down without notice and without pay. In such cases that individual(s) may be subject to legal action.

For the remainder of 2023, commissions will not be capped. 

 Please reach out with any questions or concerns.
