When visitors arrive at your site, a cookie is placed on their computers identifying them as "belonging" to you (all affiliate systems use cookie-based identification).
If the visitor comes to our site and registers or buys from us, that information is recorded along with your affiliate ID - thus we know when one of "your" visitors buys from us, and we can calculate your commission according to the appropriate payment program you have chosen.
If a visitor doesn't buy from us the same day he was on your site, you may still earn a commission if the visitor comes back to us later. The cookie NEVER EXPRIRES (most major affiliate programs have a tracking/cookie expiration of between 14 to 90 days), so you could still make money days, months or even years later. (As long as the cookie is present, we can identify the visitor; however, if the visitor goes to another of our affiliates during that time, your cookie will be replaced by that other affiliate's cookie. Thus the visitor "belongs" to the last affiliate site visited.)
Once the visitor actually REGISTERS (for free) with our website, that visitor is YOURS for LIFE and that will never change. Once registered the client is locked into you forever and you have the potential to earn money from this client even years later! No other major dating affiliate program offers the LIFETIME PAYOUTS structure that A Foreign Affair has offered for 20 years!
There are a lot of reasons why A Foreign Affair is the LONGEST RUNNING major dating affiliate program offered anywhere today! And you are about to become a part of that success!
We now offer two additional payment options in addition to our long running "Pay Per Sale LIFETME" (PPS) option. Below we outline how each of them works. We highly recommend the PPS LIFETIME option to potential affiliates since this gives you the best affiliate potential for higher, longer term earnings. Once a client is locked into (registered) to you, you will often make commissions on a single client for years.
However, for whatever reasons, we understand that some affiliates may prefer the other options that we now offer (below). Upon sign-up, you MUST choose only ONE payment option at this time. If you wish to experiment with multiple options you will need to create multiple accounts with different emails (this may change in the future).
Approval Needed At Sign-Up?: No. Sign up now instantly and get started in munutes!
If you are an existing affiliate and are seeing these options now for the first time - this is the program that you a currently using since your account has been rolled into our new, enhance system.
We highly encourage new affiliates to select this option since it clearly offers the highest overall potential and long term earnings. Every time a client spends money YOU GET PAID FOR THE LIFE OF THE CLIENT!
Now we offer even HIGHER potential earnings by offering the opportunity to increase your commissions on our most popular services based up the number of new FTB's ("First Time Buyers") that you generate each month. Of course, it is important to generate new buyers each month for both you and A Foreign Affair. It is the only way to continually expand and grow your customer base.
With this in mind, as you can see below, we are rewarding affiliates with higher affiliate commissions based upon the number of FTB's they generate each month. FTB's are counted every month now matter WHEN the original "click" or "registration" occurred - even if it was weeks, months or years ago. It's a great incentive to build your LIFETIME customer base and earn even higher commissions!

Approval Needed At Sign-Up?: No. Sign up now instantly and get started in munutes! However, PPL affiliates are subject to review at any time and possible suspension if their FTB ratio falls below acceptable levels (see our terms and conditions).
With this affiliate earnings option you are paid for every LEAD you generate (a "Lead" is a person who simply registers for free with our website without spending any money). You will see below that your level of earnings (payout) is tied to the number of new FTB's you generate from these leads that you have been paid on (the ratio of actual FTB's each month vs. the number of leads you are being paid for). The client DOES NOT have to spend to spend any money for you to be paid however if you are not generating a reasonable percentage of FTB's from these leads that you are getting paid for you will earn a lower pay per lead payout.
Of course, the higher the quality of traffic that you are sending will be reflected in your FTB ratio (although you are not paid on FTB's, only the lead/registration). This is how we reward affiliates who work hard to generate quality leads.
You are paid only once up front when the lead is officially generated. However, it does not matter WHEN the ORIGINAL "click" or "lead" was generated. When the lead converts to a FTB it will be counted towards your FTB ratio for the current month. For example, you may have generated and been paid on the lead 6 months ago, however the lead converts to a FTB today. It is counted towards this months FTB ratio! You own that lead FOREVER and will get appropriate credit when/if it converts to a FTB.
IMPORTANT: We currently only accept PAY PER LEAD traffic from the following countries:
USA, CA, UK, AU, BG, FR, DA, DE, IC, IR, IL, IT, NE, NO, NZ, ES, SW, UAE, SA

Approval Needed At Sign-Up?: Yes. You may sign up now instantly and get started sending traffic! However, once signed up, you should use our affiliate contact form to contact us and review your sources of traffic, etc. Your account should be approved within 2 to 3 business days. No payouts can be made until the account is officially approved by our staff. All FTB affiliate accounts are subject to review at any time and/or suspension if fraud is suspected or evident (see our terms and conditions).
This affiliate earnings option is simple. You get paid a one time flat fee up front when one of your "clicks" or "leads" converts into a First Time Buyer no matter how much money they spend. As you can see below, the higher the number of FTB's you generate in any given month, the higher payout you earn for each one.
Remember, as with all of our options, our tracking cookies NEVER EXPRIRE (like most affiliate programs will do) and once the client registers for free with our website they are owned by you FOREVER, no matter when they may convert to a FTB (again, most affiliate programs will put a time limitation on their tracking AND registered leads - A Foreign Affair incorporates no such time limitations!).
