(Affiliate links in email signature will not violate these terms. Failure to comply will result in termination of your affiliate account.)

Here is the short simple version of The Napier Book referral / affiliate program (questions and answers below):

When someone uses your affiliate link to visit any page on our site, they are given a “cookie” that tells our site that you have referred them. Then,

  • if they purchase The Napier Book; a CD; a piece of Jewelry, or
  • if they sign up for one of our free reports; our newsletter; to read a special blog post,
  • then they become attached to your account on The Napier Book.

If they purchase a book at that time, or later when they are logged into their account, they will automatically save $10.00, and you will earn between $10 and $20 for each book purchased. (see below for $10-20 Payment Criteria)

Further, if one of your referrals (Person A) uses their affiliate link to refer Person B into our site – and Person B becomes Person A’s referral, you will earn $5 for each book that Person B purchases. (see below for 2nd-Tier Affiliate sales criteria)

All you do is share your affiliate link and encourage others to visit our site, read our articles, learn about costume jewelry, and/or purchase The Napier Book, and our system automatically handles the rest.

  1. What is an affiliate program? How does it work?

    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. When a visitor to your site (or a reader of your email/blog) clicks on your affiliate link to our site and completes a purchase, you get a commission on every item they buy!When you purchased the book, you were automatically accepted to our program and given your own personal and secure account. Your account is private and you are not required to use it in any way. You can log in at any time to get our banners and links at and find out about commissions you have earned.

  3. How do I link to a specific product?

    To to link to a specific page, there’s a link called “Napier Book Generic Link” that links to the home page. You’ll see the Destination URL listed as To change it to go to the page you want, just change everything to the left of ?a=c to the URL of the page you’d like to link to. Just make sure to keep the ?a=c at the end of the URL. You can use that link over and over again to create properly formatted custom links to any page on our site.

We also welcome owners of opt-in e-mail newsletters. We reserve the right to suspend any affiliate if the site or e-mail list contains objectionable material or participates in unsolicited e-mailing/SPAM. We retain the right to stop the Affiliate Program at any time (after handing out all legally acquired funds).

  5. Does it cost anything to participate?

    No! As long as you have an account with us, all you need to do is keep linking and collect your commissions.

  6. How are sales tracked from my site?

    On the Referral Tool Box page, you will be given a unique affiliate ID as well as custom-formatted links that will ensure that traffic coming from your site is properly tracked. We also include images and banners you might use for your links. When someone uses your link to get to our site, and then either signs up to become a member or purchases The Napier Book, you are credited with the sale. If they they sign up but purchase at a later date using their login, you will still get credit for the sale.You may have earn an unlimited number of sales through your affiliate link.

  7. How much will I earn? How and when do I get paid?

    All affiliates can earn commissions of $10-$20 per book purchased, based on the following rules.

  8. – $10 commission per book for the first 3 books sold through your affiliate link.
    – $15 commission per book for the next 5 books (books 4 through 8)
    – $20 commission per each book after the 8th book sold through your affiliate link.

    For example: You get credit for 5 purchases of The Napier Book by people you referred.

    – you would earn $30 for the first three books (3 books @ $10/per book) purchased by your referral.
    – you would earn $30 for the next two (the 4th and 5th books = 2 books @ $15/per book) purchased by them for a total of $60 in commissions earned.

    Life By Design Publishing will then pay our affiliates monthly on the 15th of each month through PayPal after a 15 day return period based on qualifying sales of the last day of the previous month. For example: Bob had five referral sales in May. The sales were made on the 5th, 6th, 13th 15th, and 21st of the month. On May 31, four of his sales qualified for payment based on the 15-day return period. On June 15, Bob received payment for $45.00. The following month Bob received payment for $15.00.

  9. How do I earn commissions on my 2nd-tier referrals?
    When a Person A assigned as your referral at refers Person B, and Person B is assigned as a referral to Person A, then Person B becomes your “2nd-tier affiliate.” They (Person B) will also receive $10.00 off of the book purchase and you receive $5 when any of your 2nd-tier affiliates purchase The Napier Book. You may have an unlimited number of 2nd tier affiliates.

    We use a “most-recent cookie” process to assign people referred to our site to the person who referred them. We attribute referral credit to the last affiliate link a person uses to access the site before they sign up or purchase The Napier Book. Once a person is listed as your referral, you will receive credit for the sale if they purchase the book through that account later, even if they use a different person’s referral link just before they purchase. The last person who refers them to our site before they sign up for something gets referral credit for that person.

  10. Can I earn commissions on past purchases?

    The affiliate program only applies to 100% to new sales. Commissions will not be paid on any past purchases. Orders made by an affiliate on their personal link will save $10.00 and earn $10.00. Note: all previous customers have their unique affiliate account.

  11. Will I be issued 1099-MISC?

    All affiliates who make over $600.00 in commissions will be issued a 1099-misc for nonemployee compensation. Any commission owed that is above $600.00 will require a W-9 form to be submitted by the affiliate to Life By Design Publishing. Without this form on file, Life By Design will delay payment of earned commissions (above $600.00) until it (LBD) is in receipt of a W-9 from the affiliate. However, you will continue to accumulate any referral commissions earned in the meantime. Please note that the failure to submit a completed W-9 tax form to Life By Design before December 31 (of the current year), will result in forfeiture of all affiliate commissions earned during that year. W-9 forms can be downloaded here: W-9 Tax Form.
