What is an affiliate program?

The Moo Money Affiliate Program allows you to earn money by referring customers to FatCow through banner ads or text links on your Website or within your email. FatCow provides you with the code for these banner adds or text links, and each contains your unique ID. When your links generate sales, FatCow pays you a commission. .

Commission payments processing time line

Commissions are processed approximately 15 to 30 days after the end of month in which a Qualified Purchase was completed. For example, commissions on sales generated in the month of January will be paid at the end of February.

FatCow, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to withhold and/or reject commission generated for accounts that may be fraudulent or are determined to have an excessive cancellation rate.
