The MedStore affiliate program is easy to use and characterized by some fantastic commission rates for high-performing affiliates. MedStore also maintains a high level of honesty and integrity in an industry that is not always synonymous with those two words. Their customer service is strong, although not superior. Most importantly, their commissions are awesome. They start at 50% and then go to 70% if you do a lot of volume.
Ease of Use:
MedStore could teach other affiliate programs a few things about how to display a massive amount of information in an elegant and user-friendly way. The MedStore affiliate main page benefits not only from good-looking, functional design, but an impressive back-end architecture that enables affiliates to see the whole of their businesses. This includes powerful report-generating tools, real-time product data feeds, and a gloriously trim but informative FAQ.
The medical industry and the Internet, when combined, do not exactly have the best reputation overall, thanks to the legions of rabid spammers hard-selling penis enlargement pills and such. MedStore has gone against this trend nicely, maintaining an honest and forthright operation. The generic drugs available at MedStore are a great deal for customers relative to their name brand counterparts. There's nothing to be ashamed of when you partner up with MedStore.
This is yet another instance when we have to dock a star because we want to be able to pick up the phone and call you directly, immediately, rather than having to go through the online ticketing system for initial inquiries. MedStore balances this annoyance out, though, by getting back to you quickly with informed answers and helpful advice. With medical products, intelligent customer service is especially appreciated, and we've found that here.
Commissions start at 50% of the sale and then go up from there, based on volume. The highest commission percentage is 70%. Yes, you read that right: you can make up to 70%. Granted the 70% doesn't kick in until you refer more than 80 orders in one day and the percentages are on the mark-up rather than the full price of the product, but still. MedStore is an example of a percentage system that really works. In an interesting twist, MedStore also offers affiliates to set prices and profit margins on each particular product, so you can strategize. Example: price lower and go for volume, or price higher and achieve more revenue per customer. What's more, customers you refer are yours for life. If they're buying pills from MedStore in 2032 and you referred them in 2009, you're still getting paid. We like that idea tremendously.
Ease of Commission Payment:
They pay every two weeks, on the first and 15th. You can get paid via bank transfer or two Internet money systems, Web Money or Fethard (variations on the PayPal concept). Currently, MedStore does not issue paper checks to its affiliate partners.
