Once you have been enrolled in the Affiliate Program, you will be sent an Affiliate Referral Link. We will grant to you a non-exclusive, limited permission to use our trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names and other branding features as designated by us and as available on the Affiliate Platform in where you are to respect our guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to Mailjet.

To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats (“Special Links”) to be used in all links on your site to the Affiliate Platform. You must ensure that each of your links properly utilizes such Special Links. You will earn referral fees only with respect to sign­ups on a Mailjet Affiliate Platform occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to these Terms of Service. Special Links must direct to the home page of Mailjet. Deep links or links to other pages other than our home page will not earn any credit.

We reserve the right to immediately suspend or terminate your participation in the Affiliate Program if we believe you have engaged in any of the following:

  • Unsolicited mass email solicitations, IRC postings or any other form of spamming, or otherwise that violate Mailjet’s anti­-spam policies or the pertinent laws in effect;
  • Provide inaccurate or incomplete information to Mailjet concerning your identity, address or other required information;
  • Attempt to cheat, defraud or mislead us in any way;
  • Misrepresent to the public the terms and conditions of our or your websites;
  • Engage in popup advertisement network activities;
  • IFrames may not be used unless given express permission by Mailjet; sales made through hidden IFrames or Cookie stuffing methods will not earn any credit.

You are free to bid on PPC networks for keywords related to our emailing services with the intent to direct traffic to Mailjet. You are not authorized however in using our brand name or trademark in bidding.

You acknowledge that you obtain no intellectual property rights or licenses by these Terms of Service except for those licenses expressly granted herein.

 

  1.    Referral fees / Commissions and payment

For a sign-up to be eligible to earn a referral fee, your customer (the “Customer”) must click­ through one of your Special Links. The Customer must sign up for our product within a maximum period of thirty (30) days after the first session. The first session will activate a cookie linking the Customer’s visit to you as Affiliate for a 30 days period. If the Customer leaves the site, comes back later on its own within this 30 days period, and registers effectively as a Customer, you will earn a commission on any future purchases by this Customer. If the Customer clicks on 2 or more different Affiliate Program links, only the first link will be stored in the cookie.

The commissions that may be earned is detailed as follows:

  • 20% on public subscription prices https://www.mailjet.com/pricing during the first 12 months following the registration of a new Customer account on mailjet.com via the Special Links.
  • 10% on custom plans (with a minimum 12 month commitment by Customer), during the first 12 months following the signing of the Customer contract with Mailjet.

Recurring commissions are paid every month, starting on the third month following the Customer new registration, and only after the Customer has made their first monthly payment and the threshold (as referenced below) has been met. If the Customer cancels their account before the 28th day of their term, you will not receive prorated commissions or a commission for that month.

For all specifically identified new affiliates, the following commissions will be paid as follows:

  • 120$ for every New Paying Customer generated, one-time payment only.


The commissions are calculated on revenues, excluding VAT. Eventual promotions or discounts are not subject to commissions. In the event of discontinuation of the Affiliate Program, commissions will be paid only for a period of 180 days.

Commissions are only paid on business generated through properly formatted Special Links that were automatically tracked by our systems. We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.

Payments only begin once you have earned more than $100, €100 or £100 in commissions. Commissions are treated in the Affiliate’s own currency. For example $70 cannot be converted into £ to reach threshold levels. If your account never surpasses the threshold, your commissions will not be realized or paid.

Commissions are paid by wire transfer. You are required to provide us with your bank account information to receive commissions.

 

  1.    Identifying yourself as a Mailjet Affiliate

You may not issue any press releases with respect to your participation in the Affiliate Program without our written consent; such action may result in your termination from the Affiliate Program.
