We’ll write more extensively about the CBD Essence affiliate program in the future but here are a few quick points.
The product quality looks good.
But the commission terms are poor.
They pay 20% which is not that bad, although a more workable figure is in the 35% range.
Less than 35% makes it hard for professional marketers to make a profit after promotional costs.
Worse yet they will only make a commission payment after the affiliate generates a minimum of $200 in commissions.
In other words, for new affiliates, if you have a month where your commissions total $195. you won’t get paid until you pass the $200 threshold.
That’s too high.
The industry standard is payouts starting at $50.
The customer return policy is weak.
The CBD Essence website states “All unopened products carry a 14-day client satisfaction guarantee and will be happily refunded.”
