Affiliate Program FAQ’s

What is the Credit Strong affiliate program?

An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (that’s you) drives traffic to a merchant’s web site (that’s us) in exchange for referral commissions. You can post online about Credit Strong on your website and when your visitor clicks your affiliate link to sign up and satisfies their first payment, you get a commission for that customer referral.

We have partnered with TUNE to provide our affiliates with tracking, reporting, and prompt monthly payments.

How does the program work?

Once your application is accepted, you will be given a unique affiliate ID as well as a unique link that will ensure that traffic coming from your site is properly tracked. We maintain a 3 month cookie, meaning that if a visitor clicks on a link from your site, you are credited with the sale as long as the visitor makes their first payment within 3 months of the initial click.

TUNE records all transactions from your site in real time, meaning that all impressions, clicks, and sales are tracked instantly. Your affiliate portal has all of the reports and tracking resources you’ll need to see how you’re doing. You can use these reports to find out which of your links are performing the best and to optimize your site for maximum sales.

What is considered a referral for an earned commission?

Credit Strong affiliates will be paid out once their referral signs their contract on their loan for business accounts.

Is there a sign up fee to become a Credit Strong Affiliate?

About Credit Strong Business Accounts

What is a Credit Strong Business credit builder account?

A Credit Strong Business credit builder account is the combination of a cash secured commercial installment loan and a commercial savings bank account. At origination, the funds from the loan are deposited into the savings account as collateral for the loan and a lock is placed on the savings account for the life of the loan. The loan and payment activity for the loan are reported to commercial credit bureaus, building the credit profile for your business.

Can I make withdrawals from my Credit Strong Business credit builder account?

During the life of your loan a lock is placed on the commercial savings account to secure the loan and the money in the savings account is not available for withdrawal. At maturity of the loan, or when the loan is closed and paid off, the lock is removed and the funds in the savings account are available to you.

How do you determine if my business is eligible for a Credit Strong Business credit builder account?

We need to be able to positively identify both you personally and your business. Your business must also not be involved in a ‘prohibited industry or activity’. We do not perform a hard credit inquiry on you personally or on the business, i.e. we don’t pull credit for you or the business.
