Prevent Yoga Injury Affiliate Program
Frequently Asked Questions
Prevent Yoga Injury has created an affiliate program that will allow select partners to earn commissions from sales of “The Contraindication Index for Yoga Asanas” which they generate.
What is affiliate marketing?
Yoga safety is everybody’s business. Prevent Yoga Injury wants to get the word out about The Contraindication Index for Yoga Asanas to a wide audience, as quickly as possible. Affiliate marketing is a primary way for us achieve that goal. We see it as an incentive and reward system for promoting yoga safety.
How does it work? What do I have to do?
All you need is a website, email newsletter list, social media account or blog to participate. How much effort you want to put in is totally up to you. It can be as simple as listing The Index on your resources page. Once you are accepted into the program, you will receive a unique tracking link and ideas on how to use it. Simply place this link on your website, in your email newsletter or on your blog and when someone clicks on it they will be taken to the Prevent Yoga Injury website. If they purchase The Index, then you get credit for that purchase through the tracking system and will be paid a commission. Please note: you will only be paid commission if someone purchases The Index. Clicks do not earn commission, only purchases. Additionally, we can only pay commission on sales of The Index. Other items available via our Amazon store or through other partnerships are not eligible for commission.
How much will I earn?
Affiliates will earn a flat 25% commission on sales of any of the three licenses:

How do I apply?
Simply complete the application form and we’ll review it to ensure you meet our eligibility requirements. We’ll reply as soon as possible (usually within 72 hours) with a link that you will need to visit to set up your account. The program is administered through e-Junkie. Once you’ve created your account, you will be provided with a unique tracking code, ideas for where to place it and how to use it, along with some graphics. You can expect to be up and running within a few days depending on whether you have a do-it-yourself website or work with a webmaster/designer.
How do I get paid?
All affiliate payments are made via PayPal. You must have a PayPal account to participate. If you don’t already have one, please set it up before completing registration for the program. You will be asked to enter your PayPal address during the registration process.
How often will I get paid?
We pay out our affiliates by the 15th of each month, for the sales completed the prior month. So, for example, if you join the program in February, you would be paid for all of your February sales by 15 March. If the 15th falls on a weekend, then expect to see your payment either the Friday before or the Monday after.
Affiliates who earn more than $600 a year will receive IRS form 1099-MISC from Prevent Yoga Injury. Once you are nearing this number, we’ll send you IRS form W-9 to fill out and return to us.

Terms & Conditions
No Self Discounts: You will not be paid commission for buying The Index yourself.
No Spam: Nobody likes spam. Spamming is illegal and also, really annoying. Affiliates may only promote The Index to their own networks or networks to which they have legal access. Any affiliate found to be spamming will be removed from the program and earnings will be forfeited (to a deserving charity). If you aren’t really sure what activity constitutes spamming, please familiarize yourself with the CAN-SPAM Act. In addition to email spamming, Prevent Yoga Injury considers irrelevant posting to message boards and forums spam and prohibits this kind of behavior from our affiliates. Rule of thumb: ask yourself, would I be annoyed if someone did this? If the answer is yes, then it’s best not to do it.
Non-compete Clause: Affiliates agree not to directly compete with the Prevent Yoga Injury homepage for sales. This means you agree not to use the following keywords as metatags for search engine optimization or for Google AdWords or other CPC (cost-per-click) ad campaigns:
No Pyramids: Once you have been approved for the program, YOU are the only person who can post your code on the websites and networks that you own and that you provided for approval in your application. You are prohibited from splitting your commissions with others, as this is equivalent to charging a fee to participate in the Prevent Yoga Injury Affiliate Program. E-Junkie expressly forbids such behavior, and Prevent Yoga Injury does too.
We reserve the right to ban any affiliate engaging in unethical or illegal behavior. Any unpaid commissions earned by a banned affiliate will be forfeited and we’ll donate them to charity.
Prevent Yoga Injury reserves the right to make changes to our Terms & Conditions as required. We will notify affiliates in writing (via email) of changes if/when they occur.
