The NiteFlirt Affiliate Program pays you money for every new customer you send to NiteFlirt. You send new customers to NiteFlirt from your website, email, or other advertising. When those customers spend money, we pay you! Currently we pay $50 for each new customer you refer.
How does the NiteFlirt Affiliate Program work? As an affiliate, you'll put creative on your website, in an email signature, or in social media posts. Then someone clicks the creative and visits NiteFlirt. After they click, they have 30 days to become a member and after they become a member, they have 90 days to spend $50. After they spend $50, we'll credit $50 to your NiteFlirt account!

How do I become a NiteFlirt Affiliate? To become an affiliate, just sign up to be a NiteFlirt member. Then accept the Affiliate Agreement and - voilà! - you are now a NiteFlirt affiliate! Congratulations!
Are there any fees or costs associated with becoming a NiteFlirt affiliate? No. There is no charge to become a NiteFlirt affiliate.
Do I need to be a Flirt to participate? No. Any NiteFlirt member can be an affiliate. Simply accept the Affiliate Agreement and place the affiliate links on your website, in your emails, and through social media.
Can websites outside of the U.S. become an affiliate? Sure! We strongly suggest you take a look at the countries NiteFlirt supports so you can tailor your marketing efforts to those who can use the service.
I’m a Flirt. Will my existing links and buttons count towards the NiteFlirt Affiliate Program? If you are a Flirt, existing Call Buttons, Payment Mail Buttons, Profile links, and listing links will give you affiliate credit as long as these are placed outside of NiteFlirt.com. However, we strongly encourage you to use the Affiliate buttons and links provided on the Creative page and to customize your Creative IDs (CRID) in order to maximize your reporting options. Only Affiliate Creative Goody Bag buttons and links will give you affiliate credit at this time.
Who is considered a new customer? A new customer is someone who has never visited NiteFlirt before.
What is the qualifying purchase a new customer needs to make in order for me to make money? The new customer needs to spend $50 on NiteFlirt within 90 days of joining. They can spend that $50 in any combination of ways - on calls, mail purchases, Goody Bag purchases, or Tributes.
When will I see my $50? $50 will be credited to your NiteFlirt account approximately 60 days after the customer spends $50.
How often do I get paid by NiteFlirt? After the $50 referral credit is added to your NiteFlirt account, you can choose from multiple payment options. You can either be paid monthly by check or direct deposit, or enroll in Express Pay which is paid out daily via direct deposit. Learn more about getting paid here!
Which clicks count? When a potential customer clicks on your banners or buttons on your site or they click on your refer link, it counts! But, because we track who clicked, we only record one click per unique person.
Clicks that originate from NiteFlirt or sites powered by NiteFlirt do not count.
How long after a click will it count as my referral? If a customer who clicks on your affiliate link joins within 30 days, we consider them referred to NiteFlirt by you! But remember, you only get the $50 Affiliate Credit when a customer spends $50 within 90 days of joining.
What is my NiteFlirt Affiliate ID and where can I find it? Your NiteFlirt Affiliate ID uniquely identifies you and credits the new customer referrals to your account. Your NiteFlirt Affiliate ID is included in the HTML code for the content links and comes after "pid=" in the HTML.
Note: If you are a Flirt and linking to your own content, then the affiliate links do not need to contain the affiliate code. By default, we will credit the owner of the linked content as the affiliate, as long as that owner has accepted our Affiliate Agreement.
Your NiteFlirt Affiliate ID is listed in purple in the "Creative" tab within the Affiliate Center.
Do you provide me with banners to use? We sure do! But if you’re feeling creative, go ahead and create your own!
Can I earn money promoting other Flirts’ Profiles, Listings, and Call, Mail, or Goody Bag buttons? Yes! To earn referral payments for directing new customers to another Flirt’s Profile, Listings, and Call, Mail, and Goody Bag buttons, use the Affiliate Creative Generator on the Creative tab under your Affiliate ID!
Click the link next to "Want to promote another Flirt?"
Enter the Flirt's Member Name and click "Generate HTML."
Select the creative you want to promote and copy the HTML!
What is a Creative ID? In the code for each banner and button, we have included a Creative ID or "CRID." The CRID allows you to identify that particular creative and generate reports based on that CRID. This allows you to track how well a specific creative is performing. And if you use the same creative in different places, just assign each a different CRID to compare how each is performing!
What types of reporting are available to Affiliates? Several reports are available in the Reports tab of the Affiliate Center:
Earnings Summary Use the Earnings Summary to see your total referral earnings, any pending earnings, and your earnings per click and per join for the selected time period and creative.
Funnel The funnel report groups users by the month of their first click and tracks subsequent activity of this 'click class' regardless of when it occurs. Here's a sample:
The sample above shows an affiliate who received 520 first-time clicks in November 2013. Of those 520 'clickers,' 48 joined NiteFlirt ("Joins") and 12 converted to being paying customers ("Conversions") within 30 days of their first click (but not necessarily in November). This is shown in the "Activity in first 30 days" table. In the "Total activity all time" table, we can see that one more November 2013 'clicker' converted to being a paying customer more than 30 days after their first click.
Group By Use the Group By reports to see your results per day, week, month, creative, landing page, referring domain, or referring domain and creative for the selected time period and creative.
