Affiliate FAQ


Earn money promoting Golf Pad products. Apply to the Golf Pad affiliate program to earn up to 15% per sale.


How much will I earn on each sale? 

Commission and sales are calculated monthly. The more your referrals purchase, the more you earn per sale!

Driving Range: 8% on your first 3 sales
Birdie: 10% on the next 4-10 sales
Albatross: 12% on purchases 11-17
Ace: 15% on units 18+

For example: 

In November, 2016 you referred visitors who purchased a total of 12 sets of Golf Pad TAGS.
$99 purchase price X 12 sets of TAGS = $1188.00
12% commission = $142.56

In December, 2016 you referred visitors who purchased a total of 19 sets of Golf Pad TAGS. 
$99 purchase price X 19 sets of TAGS = $1881.00
15% commission = $282.15

How do I know if I've made a sale? What if a customer returns a product?

Each time a visitor you referred makes a purchase, you'll receive an email. You can also log in to the Golf Pad affiliate dashboard to view your sales. 

If refund is provided to a customer for which commission has already been paid to you, the same will be adjusted from your future payments.

Do I have to claim my earnings on my taxes? 

We are not tax professionals nor are we providing legal advice. The IRS requires taxpayers to report all income. In the event you earn $600 or more, Golf Pad will provide a 1099-MISC form which includes all your earnings during the calendar year. Please consult a tax professional for information specific to your situation.

Is there a limit to how much I can earn? 

Earn as much as you want! There are no limits on your potential commissions. Golf Pad does not take taxes from your earnings. If you earn over $600 in a calendar year, we are required by the IRS to provide a 1099-MISC form listing your earnings. You'll need to provide a Form W-9 so we have your correct taxpayer identification number. We will provide simple instructions after you apply.

What if a referred visitor doesn't purchase right away? 

The Golf Pad affiliate program tracks your referred visitors for up to 21 days after they've clicked on your link. If they make a purchase during that time-frame, you'll be credited for the sale.
