Frequently asked questions
How much commission do I receive from sign ups . . .
As a new Affiliate you will earn a 15% commission on the base price that each of your customers pay (direct ad spends are not commissionable). You can also qualify for an additional 2% commission once your commissionable monthly volume reaches $7,000/month. Refer to Commissions & Bonuses table under the "Get Paid" tab.
How do I receive commissions . . .
Monthly commissions will be automatically deposited into your bank account. Soon after registering as an Affiliate you will receive an email from Social5 prompting you to submit a direct deposit form and W9 for tax purposes.
Can I enroll Affiliates myself . . .
Yes, you can enroll as many Affiliates as you’d like. You can earn a 3% - 5% commission from the customers that your personal affiliates bring in and can also qualify for a 3% commission for any customer sales from the Affiliates that your personal Affiliates bring in. Refer to our compensation plan document for more details.
Are customers locked into a long term contract . . .
One year commitment. Social and mobile marketing takes a little bit of time to grow and generate results. If a customer isn't satisfied after one year they can opt out of renewing their service at no cost.

What happens once I have a sign up . . .
Once a sale is made our Affiliates schedule their customer’s on boarding call with the Social5 team of experts. We use an online automated calendar to schedule on boarding calls where our Affiliates are asked to provide contact information, website, and the selected package to our on boarding team. You and your customer will receive an email that contains details for joining the on boarding call. Once your customer’s on boarding call starts, leave it to the Social5 team of experts to do the rest.

No - the only optional fees that you may pay are for our $29/month support package that can be cancelled at any time (30 day cancellation policy).
How are my commissions tracked . . .
Each month you will receive a detailed commission report prior to any commissions being paid. In the unlikely event that there is a discrepancy, just let us know so that we can make the correction before commissions are paid.
