Most people are eligible to promote V2 Electronic Cigarettes, V2 Pro Vaporizers, and Vapour 2 as a V2 Profit Affiliate. Affiliates are typically websites that refer traffic to our electronic cigarette brands website(s) v2.com and vapour2.eu/cz. V2 Profit Affiliates earn commissions on all sales generated through this traffic referral. Websites will be rejected that promote illegal activities or that promote discrimination based on age, sex, race, religion, nationality, disability or sexual orientation. There is NO CHARGE to become a V2 Profit Affiliate - in fact, WE PAY YOU $25.00 just for signing up!

*NOTE: Please refer to the V2 Profit Affiliate Network Terms and Conditions for more details (available in PDF format in the V2 Profit back office).

You can utilize any of the supplied marketing and advertising tools provided within the V2 Profit Affiliate Network console. You are free to advertise and promote V2 , V2 Pro, and Vapour 2 products offline or online on any website, as long as it does not contain or promote illegal or discriminatory content. However, keep in mind that we do not permit the use of VMR trademark terms used in affiliate website URLs or keyword advertisements.

*NOTE: Please refer to the V2 Profit Affiliate Network Terms and Conditions for more details (available in PDF format in the V2 Profit back office).

No. Only Affiliates with prior written permission from V2 Profit can bid on keywords used in search engines (e.g., Google AdWords). Additionally, VMR prohibits the use of our trademark terms in Affiliate URLs. Any unauthorized use of these trademark terms may result in the suspension or termination of your V2 Profit Affiliate account. Prohibited trademark terms include (but are not limited to): v2 cigs, v2cigs, v2 electronic cigarettes, v2 ecigs, v2 e-cigs, vapour 2, vapour2, v2 pro, or any combination thereof.

Yes. V2 Electronic Cigarettes and V2 Pro products are sold online domestically through our website www.v2.com, and Vapor Couture products are sold online domestically through our website www.vaporcouture.com. Vapour 2 products are sold internationally through our website www.vapour2.eu and www.vapour2.cz. You DO NOT need to be located in the U.S. to be a V2 Profit Affiliate! In fact, we encourage traffic from all sources worldwide, but please keep in mind that certain countries and local governments have restricted the sale and/or shipment of electronic cigarettes and vapor devices. We also provide U.S. IRS 1099 tax forms to report amounts paid to independent contractors (i.e., Affiliates). U.S.-based Affiliates will need to submit an IRS W-9 form for tax purposes.

V2 Profit is proud to boast the highest payouts in the vapor industry. Additionally, our affiliate program offers true “lifetime” residual commissions, permanently linking the Customer Profile account to the first referring Affiliate.

REFER More. EARN More.

We want to put the ball in your court to earn higher payouts for NEW and Residual Commissions based on NCA performance. “NCA” (New Customer Acquisition) refers to the # of NEW Customers you refer monthly. NCA performance will be evaluated monthly, and you will be notified via email if your Payout Level changes. Payout Levels are based on the previous month's NCA performance, and will be adjusted on the 1st day of each month.


Introducing performance-based commission payouts.*

• Level 1 (0-24 NCA/month):
- 30% Commission on NEW Customer referrals
- 10% commissions on Existing Customer sales ("lifetime" residuals)

• Level 2 (25-49 NCA/month):
- 35% Commission on NEW Customer referrals
- 12.5% commissions on Existing Customer sales ("lifetime" residuals)

• Level 3 (50-74 NCA/month):
- 50% Commission on NEW Customer referrals
- 15% commissions on Existing Customer sales ("lifetime" residuals)

• Level 4 (75-99 NCA/month):
- 60% Commission on NEW Customer referrals
- 17.5% commissions on Existing Customer sales ("lifetime" residuals)

• Level 5 (100+ NCA/month):
- 75% Commission on NEW Customer referrals
- 20% commissions on Existing Customer sales ("lifetime" residuals)


Want to earn higher payouts? Simply refer more NEW Customers - it's that easy.

Our average sale is approx. $100.00 USD, so the average commission is somewhere between $30-75 USD for NEW Customers; $10-20 for EXISTING CUstomers ("Lifetime" Residual).

Monthly. Commissions are closed out at the end of business day on the final day of each month, and paid by the end of the following month for commissions earned the previous month. We have a $100.00 USD minimum threshold to meet before payments are issued. We process payments via wire transfer (commissions exceeding $1000 USD monthly; domestic and international), PayPal, and paper check. Depending on your payment preference, you will receive payment accordingly during that time, as well as a detailed email outlining the commissions paid.

1. paper check
2. PayPal
3. wire transfer (commissions exceeding $1000 USD monthly)

Monthly Affiliate commissions payments are paid either by paper check mailed to your postal address (Affiliates located within the U.S. only), processed via PayPal (U.S. and International Affiliates), and for large commissions payouts (exceeding $1,000.00 USD monthly) we also process bank wire transfers. Once you have surpassed the $1,000 per month threshold, you will be contacted to provide your bank wire details.

Yes. If an order is charged back, cancelled by the customer, or otherwise cannot be successfully processed, you will not receive a commission for that sale. If a commission has already been awarded for an Order that is Returned/Refunded/Charged back, your account will be deducted the commission amount, which will then be applied to future commission payouts.

Once you register and successfully become a V2 Profit Affiliate, you will receive an email with login details to the V2 Profit Affiliate Network back office. Within our cutting-edge multi-site interface, we offer a wide range of affiliate advertising banners for each brand, including our auto-refreshing banners which are updated regularly to reflect our current sales/promotions. You can use these banners and/or embed your custom Affiliate tracking link (URL) to generate traffic and earn sales commissions through the V2 Profit Affiliate Network. Simply click on the brand you wish to promote, Click on the "Banners" link, and select a Marketing Group to display these banners.

If you require any custom ad tools or banners tailored to your website, please contact our V2 Profit Affiliate Support team (money@v2.com) and provide us with the specifications (i.e., dimensions, colors, style, etc.). Let us know what you need and we can draft something up for you!

V2 Profit Affiliates are provided with a Unique Affiliate URL which tracks commissions for sales on our website(s). Affiliate URLs redirect potential customers to our online shopping carts, and we award commissions on a REVSHARE model (% of sale).

Commissions are tracked through a variety of redundant tracking mechanisms, to ensure that the correct Affiliate is awarded a commission for each referred sale. The hierarchy for Commissions Tracking is as follows:

• Customer Profile Attribution — once a Customer referral converts into a sale, we link the Customer Profile in our shopping cart(s) to your Affiliate account permanently to ensure that you receive commissions for the lifetime of the Customer.

• IP Address — once a Customer clicks the Affiliate URL, their IP Address is captured in our system and linked to your Affiliate account.

• Browser Cookie — once a Customer clicks the Affiliate URL, a browser cookie is also placed in the Customer's web browser and linked to your Affiliate account.

• Coupon Code — commissions are also tracked by Coupon Code used by the Customer at checkout.

Please contact our V2 Profit Affiliate Support team (money@v2.com) and let us know the preferred Coupon Code name you would like and confirm your affiliate username. Typically, we can customize a discount coupon code to match an Affiliate's website URL or username.

We offer V2 Profit Affiliates customized ("vanity") coupon codes upon request, as follows:

• 10% OFF Storewide - this coupon code is valid for all products (excluding Sale Page items and promotional Sales Discounts).

NOTE: Coupon Codes are applicable to NEW Customers only.

No. Coupon Codes provided to V2 Profit Affiliates DO NOT expire.

Yes, our new V2 Profit Affiliate Network back office tracks coupon codes used at checkout in the V2Cigs.com and VaporCouture.com shopping carts, and awards commissions based on the Affiliate's current payout level.

*NOTE: If a customer uses an affiliate coupon code at checkout, but the customer already has an affiliate tracking cookie embedded in their web browser, the tracking cookie will override the coupon code for awarding commissions.

V2 features a unique customer referral program known as "Smoke 4 Free," whereby existing V2 customers receive a $15 store credit and their referrals receive a 15% discount (on Starter Kits ONLY!; S4F coupon codes are NOT valid for all V2 Cigs merchandise!). New customers receive Smoke 4 Free cards with a unique coupon code printed on them to hand out to friends and family. The S4Fprogram awards store credit for these referrals based on coupon code use, but it in no way links to our affiliate software. However, some customers have become rather inventive in marketing their S4F codes, and have been known to post these coupon codes around the internet, including coupon code sites (e.g., RetailMeNot.com).

Yes. Currently, we do not prohibit customers from using a Smoke4Free code while still awarding the % commission to the referring affiliate. Obviously, we want to encourage word-of-mouth recommendations and reward our existing customers for their efforts. Nevertheless, the S4F Program does not affect the affiliate program, other than the mass of 15% S4F codes posted throughout the internet by resourceful customers hoping to earn store credit. We try to routinely remove these code posts from our facebook and forum pages, but obviously we cannot monitor all coupon sites. Therefore, we do not prevent customers from using these codes while still awarding affiliate commissions.

However, we DO NOT permit V2 Profit Affiliates to post "Smoke 4 Free" coupon codes on their affiliate sites, and we will not award commissions on an order placed using an Affiliate's S4F code. In that case, we would essentially be awarding "double commissions."

Yes. We encourage V2 Profit Affiliates to use their custom 10% OFF Coupon Code on personal orders (placed directly by/to an Affiliate). Therefore, if you place an order using your own name and shipping address, you can use your coupon code and we will honor that discount.

No. It is our company policy that we are not authorizing commissions on orders placed directly by/to an Affiliate. Therefore, if you place an order using your own name and shipping address, the commission may be denied.

The V2 Profit Affiliate Network back office (www.v2profit.com) is powered by a customized iDevAffiliate software system. This Affiliate console is your resource for tracking and monitoring affiliate traffic and sales commissions. Commissions can now be tracked through multiple websites utilizing different shopping carts, and our back office interface provides detailed commissions statistics to based on which website(s) the Affiliate chooses to promote.

To switch between sites, simply click the brand logo at the top of the V2 Profit back office console. This interface displays detailed sales metrics data and banner ads for your marketing promotions.

You can access this console anytime at www.v2profit.com and login with your username and password. Each Affiliate is assigned a unique affiliate URL per brand/website, and this URL records each time a customer clicks through to our website, and it also tracks commissions for sales on any items purchased. This transaction information is readily available within your V2 Profit Affiliate account, where you have access to real-time statistics and reporting.

For questions regarding your V2 Profit Affiliate account, please contact our Affiliate Support team Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 6:00pm EST, toll-free at +1 877-37-VAPOR (82767) ext. 1808. Additionally, you can reach us anytime via email at money@v2.com and we will respond during normal office hours.

$100.00 USD. Once you have referred enough sales to earn $100.00 in commissions, you will receive payment. Again, payments are issued once per month, and commissions are closed out at the end of each month for the previous month's commissions, and paid by the end of that following month.

***NOTE: Your initial $25.00 sign-up bonus is NOT calculated in meeting the initial $100 payout threshold! However, the $25 bonus will be included in your first V2 Cigs payout.

You can refer other affiliates to join the V2 Profit Affiliate Network, and these referrals will be linked to your top tier Affiliate account as "sub-Affiliates." You will earn 20% of each commission generated by any sub-Affiliates you refer to our program.

To provide potential sub-Affiliates with a link that will redirect them to our affiliate sign-up page and link back to your affiliate account, you can use your "Tier Linking Code." The "Tier Linking Code" is found on the left side of your screen in the V2 Profit back office interface.

No. A common misunderstanding is that while there is a $100.00 minimum threshold to meet before commissions payments are issued, the initial $25.00 sign-up bonus IS NOT calculated into meeting this initial $100.00 commissions requirement. Which means you still need to REFER $100 in commissions to receive payment; however, upon your initial payment, $25.00 sign-up bonus will be included in your first (V2) payout.

Yes. Payments are made per brand / website. If you do not meet the $100.00 minimum in any given month, your Approved Commissions will continue to rollover until you reach this threshold. You will then be paid out for the month and/or brand(s) which exceed this payout threshold. After your initial payout, you will be required to reach another $100.00 payout threshold to reach your next payment, and so on.

Commissions are tracked through a variety of redundant tracking mechanisms, to ensure that the correct Affiliate is awarded a commission for each referred sale. The hierarchy for Commissions Tracking is as follows:

• Customer Profile Attribution — once a Customer referral converts into a sale, we link the Customer Profile in our shopping cart(s) to your Affiliate account permanently to ensure that you receive commissions for the lifetime of the Customer.

• IP Address — once a Customer clicks the Affiliate URL, their IP Address is captured in our system and linked to your Affiliate account.

• Browser Cookie — once a Customer clicks the Affiliate URL, a browser cookie is also placed in the Customer's web browser and linked to your Affiliate account.

• Coupon Code — commissions are also tracked by Coupon Code used by the Customer at checkout.
