How can I download graphics and logos from Mauri Pro to my website?

May I link to Mauri Pro from more than one website?

You don't need to submit separate URLs (or pages) within the same site or domain. If you don't want separate reports for separate sites, you can use the same code on all sites. If you would like to get separate reports for each site, send the names and URLs using our Contact Us page and we'll add them to your profile. This will allow you to create links specifically for each site and get separate reports under one account.

How can I promote Mauri Pro?

Mauri Pro will provide banners, buttons and text links that you can use on your site. We have found that the text links are the most effective type of link for generating Mauri Pro purchases. In addition to your website, you may promote Mauri Pro through an opt-in mailing list. All links on your site must be created using the Tag Generator tool on Mauri Pro (your account) to be tracked accurately.

You cannot send unsolicited email (a.k.a. SPAM) in any way. There will be no leniency in cases of unsolicited email. Affiliates in violation of this policy will forfeit their commissions and be removed from the program.

How can I keep track of how many people visit and purchase at Mauri Pro from my site?

Simply log in to your Mauri Pro account to access a variety of online reports, where you can track not only your click-throughs and commissions but also other activity to help increase sales.

When and how do I get paid?

Step 1: Log into your account and check your earnings.
Step 2: If you accrue more than $300 you can request a payout.
Step 3: If your account is below $300 your earnings will continue to roll into the next cycle (month)

How long does the Mauri Pro cookie last?

The Mauri Pro cookie, a small file stored on the computer of a user that clicks your affiliate link, lasts for 30 days. That means that if a user clicks on your link and doesn't purchase right away, they will have a cookie with your affiliate ID on their computer. If they return to Mauri Pro or any site in its network within the month and make a purchase, you will get credit.
