Anyone can register as an affiliate for www.ShapiroInternational.com (owned by BFN Productions Ltd) You do not need to be listed as a speaker on our site nor do you need to be a speaker yourself
By registering, you agree to abide by the following affiliate program terms and conditions.
We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. If you’re approved, welcome aboard! You’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote ShapiroInternational.com via referral links. Check out your private Affiliate Area for referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!
You’ll earn 20% commission when a customer makes their profile live on ShapiroInternational.com (whether it’s a one off product, or recurring subscription) using your referral link. Here’s the breakdown of earnings by each product we currently sell:
We pay affiliate commissions in GBP via PayPal in the first week of every month. We only pay commissions that are older than 30 days. The minimum pay-out balance is £50.00. There’s no maximum pay-out balance, so the more you succesfully refer, the more you can earn.
We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases.
When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase on ShapiroInternational.com, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.
A referral won’t be awarded if:
We allow you to use “direct link tracking” if you wish, so you can skip the referral link (e.g. https://www.ShapiroInternational.com/?ref=123 or https://www.ShapiroInternational.com/ref/123) when you link to our site from your https:// website. You can submit a direct link to your own website in the Settings tab of your Affiliate Area. We’ll review your direct link submission, and when it’s approved you’ll no longer need to use a referral link when linking to ShapiroInternational.com directly from your site!
Note: Direct Link Tracking is only available if your site has an SSL certificate, and therefore the https:// protocol. We will only approve websites that are 100% owned by you.
Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission pay-out (if the commission balance totals £50.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.
We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:
By becoming an affiliate, you agree to receive emails from ShapiroInternational.com. These emails will be sent on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the ShapiroInternational.com affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote ShapiroInternational. As an affiliate you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won’t spam you.
Allowed promotional methods – stick to these and you’ll do great

If you’re unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us.
