SKINEGA BRAND PARTNERS

FOR CONSUMERS BY CONSUMERS

This is a movement of consumers, sharing the truth about skincare and its limitations. Through our network of passionate entrepreneurs, we help other consumers make better, cleaner, more informed skincare choices, free from the paid-for influence of retail and social media.

BECOME A BRAND PARTNER FOR FREE

Once you become a Skinega customer, you will automatically be eligible to sign up for free and start earning 15% commission (nearly $12 per product) paid in cash, directly to your Paypal account.

This is not multi-level-marketing. There are no levels. You don’t recruit other people. There are no promises of cars and yachts. There is just you, your passion for better cleaner skincare, and your customers.

INTRODUCTION

WHY JOIN?

It’s a very straightforward and easy way to earn extra cash for doing what you would do anyways as a customer – sharing your love for Skinega with friends and family. You can also share it with anyone you think would share your passion for vegan, natural and bio-identical skincare products, made with fewer ingredients, that don’t contain synthetic thickeners, color, fragrance, or other ingredients linked to health concerns.

WHY SKINEGA?

We encourage you to read through the website, and especially our blog where you will find a wealth of information that we hope will convey the reasons why Skinega is a great skincare company.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We have focused diligently on keeping this as simple as possible. We know everyone has busy lives, and earning a secondary income should not be a full-time job.

Once you sign up, you are given a unique website link/URL, which would be something like www.skinega.com/bp/Clare. The “bp” just stands for Brand Partner, and what comes after the “bp/,” is your username so do try your first name initially if you’re comfortable with that, assuming it hasn’t already gone. This becomes your personal website.

We give you simple links and tools to share on social media, via email, and you can even print out your link and handout leaflets if you want to. As long as you share your personal link, anytime anyone goes to the site and makes a purchase, you will receive 15%, paid to your Paypal account. It’s also worth noting that all the customers you refer also get 10% off on every purchase if they come through your link. They cannot get this discount anywhere else.

All we require is your PayPal email address, so you don’t even need to share bank details with us.

PAYMENTS

DO I HAVE TO GIVE MY BANK DETAILS?

No. All we require from you initially is your name, email address and your PayPal email (if different from your personal email address). In the US, until you have earned $500 in commission in one tax year, we do not require any more information. After you’ve earned $500 in commission, we will need for you to complete a W-9 form, so that we can fulfill our obligations to IRS. Our commitments to IRS are to report earnings of our Brand Partners, only once they reach a $600 earnings threshold, and we don’t this by submitting a 1099-MISC form, based on the information provided in the W-9 form.

For other countries, we will also stop at a $500 commission threshold and contact you to discuss what extra information we will need. We only do this at that point so it’s simpler for people to sign up and get started without the paperwork burden. Once you’ve earned $500 in commission you will obviously have a vested interest in continuing, at which point we may potentially require more paperwork.

DON’T YOU NEED MY SS NUMBER OR TAX ID?

In the US, Skinega has an obligation to report to the IRS once you have hit the $600 earnings threshold through your sales of Skinega products. We don’t require your SS or Tax ID until you’ve earned $500 in one tax year, at which point we will request this information by issuing you with a W-9. Skinega in turn will report these payments, after the $600 threshold, to the IRS, in a form called the 1099-MISC.

It is your responsibility to report all your earnings to IRS, even $0-$599. Skinega’s obligation is only to report IRS once you’ve earned more than $600 in the tax year.

A useful summary on this subject can be found at http://www.investopedia.com/articles/personal-finance/082714/purpose-w9-form.asp. if you require more information, please contact a personal tax professional.

For other countries, you should check your local tax laws before proceeding. We are not responsible for your taxes.

DO I HAVE TO PAY TAX?

You are responsible fo your tax affairs. In the US, it is your responsibility to report all your earnings to IRS, even $0-$599. Skinega’s obligation is only to report to IRS once you’ve earned more than $600 in a given tax year.

I AM A PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATE. CAN I USE MY SKINEGA LINK ON MY WEBSITES?

Yes, you just signup as a Brand Partner, and we have unique settings in the “SETTINGS” menu options for professional affiliates.

WHAT SUPPORT DO YOU PROVIDE?

We provide full support to all of our Brand Products. If you can’t find the answers here or in the training documents, you can contact us via the website contact page.

WHEN DO I GET PAID?

The commission will be paid into your PayPal account within 24-48 hours from each payment being received from the customer.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EVENT OF A REFUND?

We will also require that the commission is refunded. This can be done from your Skinega account where we would just withhold the relevant amount from future payments.

WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU OFFER?

We only pay via PayPal. This means you never need to share your bank details or other personal details.

WHAT CURRENCY DO I GET PAID IN?

We always pay in USD.

DO I NEED TO INVOICE YOU FOR PAYMENT?

No, it happens automatically within 24-48 hours of the purchase happening.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE THE COMMISSION I HAVE EARNED?

Within 24-48 hours from your customer making a purchase.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE BEEN PAID?

It will show in “PAYOUTS” on your Brand Partner dashboard, and you would typically receive an email from PayPal too unless you have turned off that functionality.

MARKETING TOOLS

HOW CAN I GET ACCESS TO BANNERS AND MARKETING TOOLS?

From you Brand Partner dashboard home screen, there are marketing tools on the home page, as well as banners in the “CREATIVES” area. You may also want to upload your photos (for example you with the product) to your Instagram or social media and copy/paste the link from the home screen.

HOW DO I CREATE LINKS AND ADD THEM TO MY SITE?

CAN I DO FACE TO FACE MARKETING?

Yes absolutely. Within our “CREATIVES” areas you will see a link “In Person Marketing” which has some different cards and leaflets that you can download to print at any quality printers, as long as you stick within the guidelines provided.

CAN I REQUEST UNIQUE SIZE/CONTENT BANNERS?

Yes, you can contact us for special requests via our contact page. This service is only open to our established Brand Partners with more than $10,000 in sales. For our existing artwork, you can find them by clicking on the “CREATIVES” link on your Brand Partner home page.

WHAT ADVERTISING AM I ALLOWED TO DO ON BEHALF SKINEGA?

You can do online advertising on the relevant industry-related personal website, niche industry website, comparison websites, video blogs, web blogs, PPC search campaigns, RSS Feeds, opt-in marketing campaign (subject to you having the requisite consent to send such marketing communications), and social media marketing. You must request permission before implementing any method outside of the preceding.

DO YOU HAVE SAMPLES THAT YOU CAN SEND TO PEOPLE?

We don’t have samples, but we do offer a money back guarantee if customers are not happy with the product. They will just have to return it to us for a refund, and the commission will also have to be refunded to us. We’d rather pay people commission in the first place.
