Guidance of Affiliation

This article is the guidance for our affiliate partners.

If you are an affiliate partner, please read the following guidance and set the link on your website, blog or social network page.

Affiliate URL

To make an affiliate URL, all you have to do is only setting a parameter into the end of the original URL.

If your affiliate code is "yourcode" and you want to set the link of which URL is

http://www.cosmates.jp/abcde/12345/

, the URL for your affiliate program is 

http://www.cosmates.jp/abcde/12345/aff/yourcode/


or

If your affiliate code is "yourcode" and you want to set the link of which URL is

http://www.cosmates.jp?abcde=12345

, the URL for your affiliate program is 

http://www.cosmates.jp?abcde=12345&aff=yourcode


Note: If you have already set the link to cosmates on your page, you may edit it.
But, if you have an expense of affiliation program, you probably already know the difficulty of earning by affiliation program. So, if you think it's a waste of time, you probably should do nothing.






How to confirm the reward and the sales though your links

The sales though your links will be analyzed by "Google Analytics". We can confirm the sales per affiliate partner and can show you the screen shot of the result, but you can't log in our google analytics account and can't confirm it directly.

Here is the exmaple of the screen shot of the result in Google Analytics.

The reward will be calculated as follows.

Reward = Total Sales Through Your Links  x  Affiliate Conversion Rate  

For example, if the total sales though your links is 100000 JPY and your conversion rate is 5%, your reward is 5000 JPY (approx. $50).

Our sales will be totalized in Japanse Yen, but the reward is exchanged to the amount in US dollars. When we exchange it, the currency exchange rate is fixed to 100 Japanese Yen = 1 US dollar.

We calculate the rewards and send it with the screen shot by peypal once per 6 months even if the sales is 0.

Your orders through your links will be deducted from the total sales because there are cases where we give long term coupon code at the same time.
