How affiliate links work

If users click on an affiliate link, a cookie is saved in their browser for a month. Immediately after they sign-up on our website or in the next 30 days from the moment they clicked on the link, they are registered in our system with the affiliate reference. Shortly after their purchase, 30% of the acquisition goes to the affiliate.

It is important to remember that if a user already has an account at ShortPixel, even if the affiliate sends the link and the user clicks on it before making a purchase, the affiliate will not be credited. That's because the user can only have an affiliate that referred him set upon sign-up to ShortPixel.

The affiliate links have the following format:

Depending on the CODE value, the user will be redirected to a specific URL. By default, the affiliate links point to the pricing page, but if you want you can edit this by changing CODE value as follows:
