We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. Please note that the review process may take a few days – we know you are eager to join our team of affiliates, and we appreciate your patience!

If you’re approved, awesome! You’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote Quark via referral links. Check out your private Member Portal for visits and referrals information, creatives, analytics and more!


Our Member Program features various levels which can be unlocked as you earn: Startup, Seller, and Boss. As a Startup level member, you’ll earn a sweet 15% commission when a customer purchases any Quark product using your referral link. As you advance through the levels, your commission percentage will grow, you’ll earn bonuses, and unlock new features to help you drive sales.

We pay out member commissions in CAD via PayPal during the first week of each month. We only pay commissions that are older than 30 days. At the Startup level, the he minimum payout balance is $50.00, so you receive a decent chunk of cash when payouts come around. And there’s no maximum payout balance, so go nuts! Your minimum payout balance will drop as you level up and build trust as an active member.

In order to receive a payout for your referrals, during registration, you must enter the email address associated with your PayPal account. If you do not already have a PayPal account, your first payout will include an invitation to create one.

We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases. We do not offer lifetime commissions for the Startup and Seller levels.


  • To register as an affiliate you must first be approved as a program member
  • You’ll receive 15% commission for every new sale you refer, and your commission percentage will grow as you advance through the levels
  • Minimum payout balance of $50.00 for Startup level members, $35.00 for Seller, $20 for Boss and no maximum payout (we pay in CAD)
  • Commissions older than 30 days will be paid within the first week of each month
  • Referrals are paid out to the PayPal account associated with the “Payment email” address you used to register
  • Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address).


When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase a Quark product, or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

A referral won’t be awarded if:

  1. The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (the cookie does not exist in that browser)
  2. The customer purchases after 30 days (the cookie will expire).


We use Direct Link Tracking, so you can skip the referral link (e.g. ?ref=123 or /ref/123) when you link to our site from your https:// website. You can submit a direct link to your own website in the Settings tab of your Member Portal. We’ll review your direct link submission, and when it’s approved you’ll no longer need to use a referral link when linking to directly from your site.

Note: Direct Link Tracking is only available if your site has an SSL certificate, and therefore the https:// protocol. We will only approve websites that are 100% owned by you.


Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout. If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:

  1. The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  2. The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.


By becoming a member you agree to receive emails from Quark. These emails will be sent to members only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the Quark Member Program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote Quark. As a member you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won’t spam you, ever – promise!


We reserve the right to reject member program applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for member program application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices, or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.
  • Affiliate applications for websites that we do not believe are aligned with our industry or business may be rejected.
  • Affiliate applicants with websites that re-sell any of our products will be rejected.
  • Websites considered inappropriate by Quark will be rejected.

Inappropriate websites:

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.


When you apply to become an affiliate we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:

  • We didn’t understand something in your application, or,
  • We’d like to learn a bit more about how you will promote Quark and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.


Please don’t leave us! We encourage all of our affiliates to actively promote Quark to keep earning referrals. If we can help you come up with ideas on how to promote Quark, please let us know – we’re here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months. But we don’t even want to go there right now, right?! Let’s work together to help you start earning some cash!

affiliate ("member") program policies


How you promote Quark is reflected in the commission you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to Quark and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our team of affiliates blog about affiliate marketing and mention Quark.

Here are a few examples of awesome promotional methods to earn more commission:

  • Tell clients, customers or friends about Quark, and give them your affiliate referral link
  • Write a review or a blog post about affiliate marketing or Quark and link to our site with your referral link
  • Reach out to a broad audience with your social network accounts. Tweet about us on Twitter with your affiliate referral link, post about us on Facebook with your affiliate link, or communicate to your Linkedin followers about affiliate marketing with your affiliate link. Spam-free promotion is a great way to get more referrals!
  • Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses, and using your referral link in your replies.


We love and back our products 100%, and we are very careful with how they are promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take pretty seriously. We know you’ll understand. 🙂 But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.

  • Quark may not be promoted on coupon sites
    Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for Quark products, so this method adds no value to Quark.
  • Paid advertising using your affiliate link is prohibited
    Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.
  • Promoting incorrect or misleading information
    Any promotional activity that shares incorrect or misleading information will result in affiliate account deactivation. This includes false information intended to click-bait potential customers. If you are unsure of the correct information or details for promoting Quark, please contact us.
  • Any type of spam is prohibited
    Links, ads, emails, comments… any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote Quark. P.S. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it’s spam.
  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited
    This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated. See above for allowed and super cool promotional methods!
  • We’re flattered, but please don’t pretend to be professionally associated with Quark
    Affiliates aren’t employees of Quark and have no employee rights.
  • Pretending to actually be Quark is prohibited
    Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official Quark site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them into iframes).
  • Again, false promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by Quark is prohibited (and super uncool).

If you’re unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us. 🙂


If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected and we may disable your affiliate account. We reserve the right to do this and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs. Please use allowed promotional methods, and help us to help you succeed as an affiliate!


The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.


By accepting these terms and conditions you are providing your nonlegal agreement to abide by them. By registering and being approved as an affiliate in our Member Program you agree that your commissions are subject to approval before they are accepted and subsequently paid.

The affiliate relationship does not represent a professional or formal agreement, and as an affiliate you are not an employee of Quark Baby Ltd.  You agree that this is not a legally binding relationship and as a result may not take legal action against Quark Baby Ltd. These affiliate terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

Phew! Sound good? Great! Thanks for taking the time to read through these T’s and C’s and for agreeing to them. We can’t wait to have you on board!
