WHY SIGN UP?
Our affiliate program allows you to promote and sell incense
and ethnobotanicals, without the hassle of buying inventory,
shipping products, answering phones, and all that comes with
running a business. With our affiliate program, you can even
make money without any marketing skills. Simply send a few friends
to your site or your link, and with a few clicks and
purchases, you can make significant additional income.
You also get paid 20% of each and every sale completed
through your link! Furthermore, we are paying several
Affiliates over $1,500.00/month as of 2006...that is a GREAT
income for simply having a great website.
ALSO: We have initiated
our TOP 20 SELLERS program for Affiliates who are our most
loyal and top earners, which offers a 25% commission for
each and every sale! - That can add up quite quickly, and
does for the Top 20 Affiliates already.
HOW DO I SIGN

HOW DOES IT
You simply place either a text link or a banner of your
choosing on your website using the simple HTML code we
provide you with. When a potential customer clicks through
the link and completes their
purchase at IAmShaman, you are automatically credited 20% of the
Total Sale! The link is completely masked, and visitors
won't even know that you are earning a percentage of every
click and every sale. Once a customer buys through your
link, your account will always be credited for any purchase
they make now or in the future.
IS OFFERING 25% COMMISSION!
Competitors can offer larger commissions, but percentages
are meaningless if they don't translate into sales. 25% of
no sales because a customer wasn't convinced to purchase
from the website doesn't translate into money in your
pocket. We have an incredibly high rate or return customers,
and once a customer comes through you, you always get credit
for any purchase they make at the shop. Ask around the web;
we have one of the best reputations out there, and are known
not only for our speedy delivery and our customer service,
but for having superior products for less than anyone else.
We are here because we are passionate about what we do, and
are happy to make less if it means more actual sales and
more botanicals getting out to more people.
WHAT IF I DON'T
KNOW HTML CODING?
1. We assume that if you have a website, you or whomever
uploaded your website would know how to paste a link or
banner into your site. If not, we are always here to help,
and if you can access your website, we can walk you through
the simple process. We have complete coding, banners,
pre-made links to our site and individual products, and a
helpful staff that will walk you through every step of the
2. If you DON'T have a website, you can still sign up and
simply use the provided text link to post wherever you feel
it is appropriate, such as a newsgroup or forum that
wouldn't consider your link to us as spam.
HOW DO I GET
You will get either a check written directly to you whenever
your account reaches $50.00 or more. Commissions
accumulate each month until the $50.00 threshhold is
For example: $1,000.00 in sales = $200.00 check to you!
It's really that SIMPLE!
- IMPORTANT POLICY NOTES:
We have a very sophisticated tracking system in place, and
any abuse will result in the immediate termination of any
account, and all funds will be forfeited. You CAN have your
friends click through your banners and order form IAS, but
the IP address can't be your own, or the sale is
automatically disqualified. Clicks from the same IP address
will only count once every 24 hours, so an avid friend can
click on your link all day, but it will only count once
every 24 hours.
2. If any affiliate
account generates more click commissions than sales
commissions, that affiliate will be moved to the "Clicks
Disabled" account at our discretion. This allows our
affiliates to place their links on systems that automate
banner impressions and clicks, without losing any sales
commissions. The $0.02 Pay Per Banner Click is simply
a way to allow Affiliates to generate a few extra dollars
per month in commissions, and any intentional or
unintentional abuse of the $0.02 per click perk we offer
will simply move you to an account that disables commissions
for link and banner clicks, but retains the full 20%
commission rate for each and every sale you make.
AFFILIATES: 25 AUG 2004
A large part of our success is because of our treasured
affiliates. We are not as big as the corporate giants, but
we care deeply about what we do, we care deeply about our
customers, and we are passionate about what we offer on our
site. Most importantly, unlike many other sites, we have
taken extra precautions as well to ensure the continued
success of our business no matter what the FDA may someday
decide about any of the products we offer.
So, as a result of our appreciation for our Affiliates, we
have made several changes to the Affiliates program. Please
take careful note; the first 2 points require MINOR changes
to your Affiliate Links:
1. You need to change 2 things in your Affiliate Links ASAP.
We have changed to a far more powerful scripting language,
and need you to reference the NEW page instead. Your links
will still work until you change, but your sales will NOT be
counted after today; 25 AUG 2004 (We are SO sorry for the
inconvenience, and will GLADLY reimburse anyone for lost
The new link code provides all the powerful features,
including far tighter tracking of hits and sales.
- Change "aw.asp" to "aw.aspx" instead in your Affiliate
- Change "www.iamshaman.com" to "www.iamshaman.net" in your
Affiliate Link Code ONLY.
2. The Affiliate Program now runs from here:
We have devoted an entire site to the Affiliate Program, so
you can simply access that site for all things
Affiliate-related now. We have a temporary panel up right
now, but we will soon be putting an entire site of resources
just for you there, such as detailed instructions, FAQ’s and
helpful tips to get your links and your site noticed.
3. We've increased commissions for ALL Affiliates to
20%!!! Also, we have created several
additional categories such as “Partner Websites” and “Top
Affiliates”. Both of those affiliate types get added
benefits which include 25% commission of all sales and
immediate approval of all sales. Checks are cut at the
beginning of each month automatically. You can no
longer trade your commission for store credit; you will
always receive cash.
4. The tracking is much tighter, and there are more options
for Affiliates when they log in. We can now create a link to
any product or product page you wish; you simply need to ask
us and we’ll add it for you.
This will be a simple change for you, but it will bring big
benefits. If you haven’t visited our
in a while, have a look around; we have continually expanded
our exposure and our product line…due to our high ranking on
most major search engines, adding a link to us is now very
beneficial to your site and its ranking as well...
