Anyone who is logged in to Distrify is automatically included in the revenue-sharing affiliate scheme. Users who buy the film or subscribe to the mailing list are automatically logged in. This means that if they use the sharing tools in the video player, or copy and paste the embed code or URL, it automatically includes a unique code that tracks their sharing. Any sales generated from their sharing qualify for the affiliate revenue-share programme. The affiliate code is tracked in the user's session, so even if they go away and then come back to buy the film, the tracking code is still active.
Affiliate revenue is only tracked one-level deep, so if you share a film with friend A who then shares it with friend B, only friend A will receive the affiliate share if friend B buys.
The minimum revenue-share for an affiliate sale is 10%. Film owners have the right to offer a greater revenue-share to encourage their audience to share the film more. The first 5% of the revenue-share comes out of Distrify's revenue-cut, and the remainder comes out of the film owner's payout.
