In order to promote our products as an Oz Affiliate, you must have an active Oz Robotics Affiliate Account. We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. Please note that the review process may take a few hours or days – we know you are excited to join our team of affiliate partners, and we appreciate your patience during this process.
DO NOT use a URL Shortener e.g. Bitly or any similar tool because we cannot track your traffic and therefore we will not know if any sales are generated. You will not get paid for that.
If your customer returns the order and asks for a refund for any reason, then you too will have to refund the affiliate margin back to us via PayPal.
If you are approved, welcome aboard! You will be given a unique referral ID to use in order to promote Oz Robotics via referral links. Check out your private Affiliate Dashboard for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs, and more!
Commissions and Payouts
You’ll earn a 5% commission when a customer purchases a new product from OzRobotics.com using your referral link. We payout affiliate commissions in USD via PayPal in the first week of every month. As we have a 30-day money-back guarantee, we only pay commissions that are older than 30 days this is just in case if there are returns. The minimum payout balance is $15.00, therefore you receive it when payouts come around. And there’s no maximum payout balance.
We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases, and from your own listed products if you are already a vendor on Oz Robotics.
The details in summary:
- You’ll receive a 5% commission for every new sale you refer
- Minimum payout balance of $15.00, and no maximum payout (we pay in USD)
- Commissions older than 30 days will be paid within the first week of each month
- Referrals are paid out via PayPal
- Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address or usernames etc. A result of such an attempt will terminate your affiliate account. We have a zero-tolerance policy.
Referral Cookie Lifetime
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 a product from OzRobotics.com or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.
A referral won’t be awarded if:
- The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
- The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).
Direct Link Tracking
We use our own Direct Link Tracking pro-add-on, so you can skip the referral link (e.g. ?ref=123 or /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 OzRobotics.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 14 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $15.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.
We reserve the right to reject and refuse affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:
- The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
- The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of this Affiliate Agreement.
Affiliate News and Updates
By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from Oz Robotics. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the Oz Robotics affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote Oz Robotics. 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, ever – promise!

Affiliate Application Rejection
We reserve the right to reject and refuse affiliate applications for any reason without any written consent. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.
Questions Regarding Your Application
When you apply to become an affiliate we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:
- We didn’t understand something in your application, or,
- We’d like to learn a bit more about how you will promote Oz Robotics and need a little more detail.
- If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected,
- You are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.
Dormant Affiliate Accounts
Please stay with us! We encourage all of our affiliate partners to actively promote Oz Robotics to keep earning referrals. If we can help you come up with ideas on how to promote Oz Robotics, please let us know – we’re here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months. But we don’t even want to go there right now, right?! Let’s work together to help you start earning some cash!
Oz Robotics Affiliate Program Policies
Allowed and super cool promotional methods
How you promote Oz Robotics is reflected in the commission you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to Oz Robotics and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our team of affiliates blog about affiliate marketing and mention Oz Robotics.
Here are a few examples of awesome promotional methods to earn more commission:
- Tell clients, customers, or friends about Oz Robotics, and give them your affiliate referral link
- Write a review or a blog post about affiliate marketing or Oz Robotics and link to our site with your referral link
- Reach out to a broad audience with your social network accounts. Tweet about us on Twitter with your affiliate referral link, post about us on Facebook with your affiliate link, or communicate to your Linkedin followers about affiliate marketing with your affiliate link. Spam-free promotion is a great way to get more referrals!
- Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses, and using your referral link in your replies.
Prohibited and Super Uncool Promotional Methods
We love and back our product 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take pretty seriously. We know you’ll understand. But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.
Oz Robotics May Not Be Promoted On Coupon Sites
- Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for Oz Robotics, so this method adds no value to Oz Robotics.
Any type of spam is prohibited
- Links, ads, emails, comments… any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote Oz Robotics. – P.S. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it’s spam
- Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited
- This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated. See above for allowed and super cool promotional methods!
- We’re flattered, but please don’t pretend to be professionally associated with Oz Robotics
- Affiliates are NOT allowed and it is prohibited to showcase Oz Robotics company information included but not limited to Company partial name, full name, phone numbers, email addresses, company logo, company physical address, mailing address, staff names, partners names, Intellectual Property, and not allowed to mention such as “in partnership with”, “in business with”, “our customers”, “our member”, “investor”, “supporter” or in any promotional business content or advertising your own website or company to third parties or showcase Oz Robotics name to gain trust from consumers or investors, etc. by all means all these actions against our core policy in affiliation or similar partnerships.
- Affiliates are not employees of Oz Robotics and have no employee rights
- Pretending to actually be Oz Robotics is 1000% prohibited
- Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official Oz Robotics site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them into iframes).
- Again, false promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by Oz Robotics is prohibited (and super uncool).
- If you are unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us.
Consequences of not-cool promotional methods
If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected and we may disable your affiliate account. We reserve the right to do this and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs. Please use allowed promotional methods, and help us to help you succeed as an affiliate.
The Important Note
By accepting these terms and conditions you are providing your non-legal agreement to abide by them. By registering and being approved as an affiliate in our affiliate program you agree that your commissions are subject to approval before they are accepted and subsequently paid.
The affiliate relationship does not represent a professional or formal agreement, and as an affiliate, you are not an employee of Oz Robotics. You agree that this is not a legally binding relationship and as a result may not take legal action against Oz Robotics. These affiliate terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.
