Earning with AHistoryOfMystery is easy for everyone. Commissions are run on a points system which is converted into money at the end of every payment period.
You can earn points with us in various ways, from sharing articles, getting friends to share articles, signing your friends up as subscribers, introducing other affiliates and sales on our store. The leaderboard shows how many points each affiliate has accumulated in the current payment period (a calendar month).
Introduce a friend
Introduce a friend to the affiliate program! You can introduce the affiliate program to an unlimited amount of people and earn 100 points for each person that joins and qualifies.
Anyone you introduce must accumulate a minimum of 500 points in a given payment period before you earn the introductory fee. If you introduce an affiliate who doesn’t accumulate 500 points in their first payment period then you can earn your introductory fee in the following payment period, providing they accumulate 500 points in that payment period. If they have not earned 500 points by the end of the second payment period, that affiliate’s introductory fee will be void.
The introductory points will automatically be added to your account immediately after one of your introductory affiliates accumulates 500 points in the given payment period.
Another way affiliates are able to earn commission is by generating sales on our store. Affiliates can provide potential customers with their affiliate ID which doubles as a discount code. When a customer enters an affiliate ID at the checkout they will receive 10% off their order.
AHistoryOfMystery will award affiliates and the bonus pool. 10% of every order that’s generated by an affiliate will be awarded to the bonus pool and the affiliate responsible for the sale will receive 1 point for every dollar spent. For example, when an affiliate makes a sale and the customer has used their unique ID, we will calculate it in the following way:
Order total: $192.00
Affiliate receives: 192 points
Bonus pool receives $19.20
There is no cap or limit on how many sales affiliates can generate. Points will be awarded once our sales team have verified the order has been received by the customer and a return is not necessary.
Our affiliate Bonus Pool is based on points, meaning the more points you accumulate, the more commission you will receive. This commission structure has been put in place to allow affiliates to earn more with AHistoryOfMystery and reward them for their efforts of sharing posts, driving engagement on their posts, getting subscribers and making sales.
Affiliates will earn points in the following ways;
1 subscriber = 1 point
1 share = 1 point
1 affiliate introduction = 500 points
All affiliates will be entitled to shares in the bonus pool based on their points at the end of each payment period (calendar month). The bonus pool is calculated in the following way:
- $0.01 will be added to the bonus pool for every ‘share’ from all affiliates.
- $0.01 will be added to the bonus pool for every single subscriber to our site.
- $0.25 will be added to the bonus pool for every 1,000 total visitors to ahistoryofmystery.com, hauntedeurope.com and hauntedasia.com.
For example, if there have been:
- 15,000,000 visitors
- 1,000,000 shares
- 1,000 subscribers
in a given payment period, the bonus pool will be calculated as;
- 10,000,000 visitors ÷ 1,000 = (10,000 x $0.25 RPM) = $2,500.00
- 1,500,000 shares x $0.01 = $15,000.00
- $1,000 subscribers x $0.02 = $200.00
This would result in the bonus pool for this payment period accumulating $17,700.00 in payable commissions.
The affiliate Bonus Pool is calculated in a fair and meaningful way to grow our website user base as well as reward affiliates the most for their efforts.
The Bonus Pool will be divided into shares by calculating the total number of accumulated points on the scoreboard (all affiliate points earned) during payment period and dividing the bonus pool by those points. Shares will then be awarded to the affiliates based on their points.
For example, if there are 50,000 affiliate points accumulated in total in a payment period and there’s $17,700 in the Bonus Pool, the payouts will be calculated in the following ways;
$17,700.00 ÷ 50,000 points = $0.35 (per share)
Let’s assume there are 6 people illegible for commissions in that payment period and their points are as follows;
John – 20,000 points
Jane – 12,000 points
Steve – 8,000 points
Christine 4,000 points
James – 4,000 points
Anna – 2,000 points
Earn affiliate’s commission would be calculated in the following way;
John will receive 20,000 x $0.35 = $7,000.00
Jane will receive 12,000 x $0.35 = $4,200.00
Steve will receive 8,000 x $0.35 = $2,800.00
Christine will receive 4,000 x $0.35 = $1,400.00
James will receive 4,000 x $0.35 = $1,400.00
Anna will receive 2,000 x $0.35 = $800.00
AHOM2020WW (AHistoryofMystery) does NOT take anything from the bonus pool, but our marketing contributions will be added to the bonus pool for affiliates.
