Recut Affiliate Program

Earn money by referring new users to Recut!

Recut is a Mac app that helps creators edit their videos, screencasts, and podcasts much faster, so they can spend more time creating awesome content and less time fiddling with their editing software.

The affiliate program is open to customers who would like to promote the app to their audience and earn a commission for each sale.

The program is currently invite-only. If you're interested in joining, send an email to dave@getrecut.com.

Affiliate Program Policy

This page is for partners of Recut's Affiliate Program, which is run by Tiny Wins LLC.

It explains the ways affiliate partners may promote Recut and how Tiny Wins LLC will compensate them for purchases they refer.

Payout Rates

Affiliates earn a 30% commission on each sale of Recut they refer.

Example (full price)

If, in one month, you refer 10 customers and each buy a copy of Recut at full price ($99), your payout the following month would be:

10 × $99 × 0.3 (30%) = $297

Example (sale price)

If you refer customers who buy Recut during a sale, your commission would be based on the sale price.

For example, if 10 customers used your link during a period where Recut was on sale for $59, your payout the following month would be:

10 × $59 × 0.3 (30%) = $177

Exclusions

There are no exclusions to the above rates.

Purchases Must Come Through Your Link

No commission will be earned for purchases that come directly from the Recut site without using your affiliate link.

For example, if you tell a friend to use your link, and they go directly to getrecut.com instead, no commission is earned.

Unattributed purchases will not be assigned retroactively.

Coupon Codes

Recut is currently not offering coupon codes to affiliates, though this may change in the future.

Affiliate Links

We use SendOwl as our payment processor and affiliate management software.

Once you're accepted into the program, you'll create an account with SendOwl and be able to access your link through the SendOwl dashboard.

Reporting

Your SendOwl dashboard will track how many clicks and purchases you've brought in.

You'll receive an email from SendOwl each time you make a sale, and you can also turn these emails off if you wish.

SendOwl also has the ability to notify you weekly, and you can turn that on inside your account.

Terms

Respect the customer

Affiliates must only promote Recut in an honest, transparent way. Don't misrepresent what Recut can do, or imply that it's available on platforms other than macOS.

Viewers and readers should understand that you are in a business partnership with Recut.

Disclosure

For blog posts and articles

Affiliates must mark their affiliate links as such and give a brief explanation of what an affiliate link is.

Example:

This post contains affiliate links, which means I earn money from purchases. This never affects the price that you pay.

For text or display ads

If you promote Recut in a format that presents the link clearly as an ad, additional affiliate disclosure is not required.

For YouTube videos

If your video or description contains affiliate links, you must mark your video in YouTube studio as "My video contains paid promotion like a product placement, sponsorship, or endorsement".

For Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram posts

Affiliate links should include the hashtag #ad or #sponsored.

Unacceptable promotion

Affiliates may not promote Recut through practices that are deceptive or predatory, such as:

Payouts

Payouts are made via PayPal at the beginning of each month, for the prior month's sales.

For example, sales that occurred in April would be paid out May 1st.

Refunds

If the customer cancels or returns their order for a refund, this nullifies any affiliate commission associated with the order.

Refunds After Payouts

If a refund occurs after a payout has already been made, the next payout will be reduced by the amount of the refunded commission(s).

For example, if a customer uses your link to buy Recut for $99 on April 25th, you would get paid $29.70 on May 1st. If the customer then requested a refund, the refunded commission ($29.70) would be subtracted from your June 1st payout.

Referral Period

Recut stores the affiliate referrer in the local storage of the user's browser for 90 days (the referral period).

The first purchase the user makes within this period counts toward the affiliate's commission.

In cases where multiple affiliates referred the user to Recut, the most recent affiliate receives credit for the sale.

Activity

Affiliates must refer at least one sale per month to remain in the program.

The affiliate partnership begins with a three month grace period, during which there are no minimum requirements.

Taxes

If you earn more than $600 per calendar year, you'll need to provide some forms for tax purposes.

US citizens and residents

You'll need to provide an IRS W-9 form.

At the end of the year, Tiny Wins LLC will send you a 1099-NEC.

Non-US affiliates

You'll need to provide an IRS W-8BEN form that declares you don't owe US taxes.

Changes

Affiliates will receive 30 days notice via email before any changes to this policy go into effect.

In rare cases, policies may go into effect immediately if they are necessary to comply with external legal or policy requirements.

Termination

Tiny Wins LLC or the affiliate partner may end this relationship at any time.

After termination, Tiny Wins LLC will pay any accrued affiliate commissions on the normal payout schedule, but the affiliate will not accrue additional commissions.
