To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a complete Program Application via the Geenali Site. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of its acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Program. Unsuitable sites include, but are not limited to, those that:
- Advertise affiliate links through pop-up windows / pop-unders
- Advertise affiliate links as a cashback offer (i.e. in terms of Money Transfer.You can provide reward points in the form of mobile recharge or any gift vouchers kind of thing to your customers from your side. But you need to mention clearly on your website that the Gift articles are not provided by Geenali.com. And the customer should contact only you for any queries related to those gift articles which you had provided to them,not to Geenali.com).

If we determine that you have not complied with any requirement or restriction provided in the Program or any other applicable policies or that you have otherwise violated this Agreement, we may (in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any fees payable to you under this Agreement, terminate this Agreement, or both. In addition, you hereby consent to us monitoring, recording, using, and disclosing information about your site and visitors to your site that we obtain in connection with your display of Special Links, and monitoring, crawling, and otherwise investigating your site to verify compliance with this Agreement and Program.
Self Orders / Bulk Orders
Please also note that you may not purchase products during sessions initiated through the links on your site for your own use, for resale or commercial use of any kind. This includes orders for customers or on behalf of customers or orders for products to be used by you or your friends, relatives, or associates in any manner. The reason behind this policy is that the Geenali Affiliate Program is an advertising program rather than a discount program. Our goal is to have our affiliates refer new customers to us in return for referral fees. Affiliates are not eligible for referral fees when they place orders themselves, or ask people they know to routinely place orders through their affiliate links so they can earn referral fees. If you are found in violation of these policies, then Geenali has the right to terminate your registration, as well as revoke all payments linked to your account, unless you can show that the purchases were genuine.
Paid Search Ads campaigns
For Paid Search Ads through Google AdWords campaigns or of other search engines, Affiliates cannot send users directly to the Geenali Site through keyword bidding or other paid search activities. However, if your Paid Search Ads, without using any Geenali trademarks or variations and misspelling of such trademarks, send users to your own website and then your website displays affiliate links to Geenali Site, you may earn referral fees for eligible purchases made by users who click through your Paid Search Ads to your website and then click through to the Geenali Site. You shall not include Geenali domain name (www.Geenali.com) as Display URL or Destination / Landing Page URL in the ad copies of your AdWords campaigns. Any affiliate found / identified by us (we have systems in place to identify) directing users / traffic to Geenali Site directly through Paid Search Ads will be penalised. Non-compliance would not only lead to suspension of your affiliate account, but also cancellation of all pending commissions and commissions thereafter.
We will process Product orders placed by customers who follow Special Links from your site to the Geenali Site. We reserve the right to reject/disapprove orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms, process payments, cancellations, and returns, and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase Products by using Special Links from your site to the Geenali Site and will make available to you reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time in our discretion.
We have to downgrade ranks in affiliate is not giving sale.
We will pay you referral fees on certain Product sales to third parties. For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link on your site to the Genali Site and during a single session, add the Product to his or her shopping cart. The session begins when the customer clicks through a Special Link on your site to the Geenali Site and ends upon the first to occur of the following events:
- session based on the customer’s initial click-through
- the customer places an order for a Product, or
- the customer follows a third party link to the Geenali Site that is appended with a different affiliate’s tag, or
- The customer follows a link to the Geenali Site that is appended with Geenali’s email campaign tag
We will only pay referral fees on eligible Products after order, payment, and shipping. To permit accurate tracking, reporting and fee accrual, you must ensure that the Special Links between your site and the Geenali Site are properly formatted. We will not be liable for paying referral fees on purchases that are not correctly tracked and reported because the links between your site and the Geenali Site are not properly formatted. We will not, however, pay referral fees on any Products that are added to a customer’s Shopping Cart after the customer has reentered the Geenali Site (other than through a Special Link from your site), as determined by us, even if the customer previously followed a link from your site to the Geenali Site. In addition, we will not pay referral fees for any purchases made by customers referred through a Prohibited Paid Search Ad or Special Links (to the Geenali Site) that is generated or displayed in response to general Internet search queries or keywords. “Prohibited Paid Search Ad” means an advertisement that you purchased through bidding on keywords, search terms, or other identifiers (including Proprietary Terms) or other participation in keyword auctions. “Proprietary Term” means keywords, search terms, or other identifiers that include the word “Geenali,” or any other trademark of Geenali, or variations or misspellings of any of those words (e.g., “Gee nali,” “geenaali,” etc). For avoidance of doubt, the Search Box Link, which searches the Geenali Product catalog, or searches of product databases that include Geenali Products, such as shopping comparison engines, are still eligible for referral fees. You may not purchase products during sessions initiated through the links on your site for your own use, for resale or commercial use of any kind. This includes orders for customers or on behalf of customers or orders for products to be used by you or your friends, relatives, or associates in any manner. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement. In addition, you may not:
- directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including, without limitation, payment of money (including any rebate), or granting of any discount or other benefit) for using Special Links on your site to access the Geenali Site (e.g., by implementing any “cashback” program for persons or entities who use Special Links on your site to access the Geenali Site);
- read, intercept, record, redirect, interpret, or fill in the contents of any electronic form or other materials submitted to us by any person or entity;
- in any way modify, redirect, suppress, or substitute the operation of any button, link, or other interactive feature of the Geenali Site;
- make any orders or subscription requests, or engage in other transactions of any kind on the Geenali Site on behalf of any third party, or authorize, assist, or encourage any other person or entity to do so;
- take any action that could reasonably cause any customer confusion as to our relationship with you, or as to the site on which any functions or transactions (e.g., search, order, browse, and so on) are occurring;
- other than providing Special Links on your site in accordance with this Agreement, post or serve any advertisements or promotional content promoting the Geenali Site or otherwise around or in conjunction with the display of the Geenali Site (e.g., through any “framing” technique or technology or pop-up or pop-under windows), or assist, authorize, or encourage any third party to take any such action;
- attempt to circumvent the referral fee schedule or artificially increase your referral fees (e.g. by intentionally featuring, purchasing or requesting or encouraging any third party to purchase low-price items offered on the Geenali Site (as determined by us) for the purpose of exceeding any referral fee threshold or by causing any page of the Geenali Site to open in a customer’s browser other than as a result of the customer clicking on a Special Link on your site);
- attempt to intercept or re-direct (including, without limitation, via user-installed software) traffic from or on, or divert referral fees from, any web site that participates in the Program; or
- seek to purchase or register any keywords, search terms or other identifiers that include the words “Geenali,” “Geenaali”, or any other trademark of IKS & Partners Company LLC or its affiliates, or variations or misspellings thereof (“Proprietary Terms”) for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service.
From time to time we may request that you cause any applicable web search provider to exclude Proprietary Terms from keywords used to display your advertising content in association with search results, assuming the provider of such Web search engine offers such exclusion capabilities.

Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be our customers.

For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time.
