How to Join and Create Links

You can join both our program and the Impact Radius network in one step. Please note that your application will be approved faster if you use an email address that matches the website in your profile (i.e. joesmith@website.com and www.website.com). This helps prove that you own the domain listed on your profile.

If your application has been submitted correctly, you should receive a confirmation email from Impact Radius. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder. Otherwise, you might not have finished the process correctly and you should resubmit your application. Once approved, you will receive a welcome email from the affiliate manager.

There is neither a minimum nor any limit. We encourage you to use as many as necessary and appropriate to improve click-through and conversion rates. We have found that a creative banner along with a text link or Hibu logo improves effectiveness.

We are happy to help you with any additional questions you may have. Just contact us for more information.

Account Information, Commissions and Reporting

Impact Radius tracks a cookie that is automatically applied to the computer of a person who clicks on a banner or text link that has your Media ID number embedded within it. Each banner or link that you create is specifically tagged with your Media ID number, letting us know that you deserve commission on the leads you send our way. You can access all of these banners and links by logging in your Impact Radius Account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available.

These links can be used from any website, put directly into a browser or emailed out in the case of text links. You can test a link by copying and pasting it into your browser. If you are directed to the Hibu website, the link is working. Do not copy and paste a landing page url from our website (i.e. www.Hibu.com/123456) and confuse it for an affiliate link, since it will not track properly.

Impact Radius will pay your monthly commission by either ACH or PayPal (2% processing fee) one month after the close of the previous month (Please Note that payment methods can vary by country). Your account needs to have a balance of $50 or more before the end of the month in order to receive a payment. Otherwise, it will continue to roll forward into the next month until the $50 minimum is reached and we can issue a payment.

Because your Impact Radius account is private, we do not have control over or access to this information. If you have any other issues with your Impact Radius account, please email support@impactradius.com

If a visitor comes to our websites from your website but does not enter their information into our lead form on that visit, you can still earn commission on a lead from that customer if they return and submit a form request within 45 days. This works even if they navigate directly to the website on a return visit as long as they haven't deleted their cookies.

Hibu takes pride in its very low reversal rate, which we attribute to open communication with our affiliates. However, we reserve the right to reverse orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and program violations as outlined in these terms and conditions.

If we have engaged you to provide us with leads (e.g., submission of completed landing page by prospect to Hibu or telephone call by prospect to Hibu), you should be aware that we will not compensate you for a lead which:

  1. Is a duplicate of a lead previously generated by this Program
  2. Is from an existing Hibu customer
  3. Contains a phone number which is disconnecte
  4. Contains an email address which is invalid
  5. Contains a phone number that does not match the customer name or is not associated with the business (e.g., lead was submitted from Tom; however, the person who answers says there is no Tom associated with that phone number)
  6. Did not agree to be contacted by Hibu
  7. Is not a live phone call with a Hibu customer representative occurring during US business hours Monday through Friday as outlined in the Insertion Order
  8. Is a phone call of a duration less than 90 seconds
  9. Is not a US-based business

Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy.
