How much does it cost?
There is no cost to become an Effex Media reseller.
What do I need to get started?
Traffic! Traffic! Traffic! We provide you with all the tools to make money,
however marketing your store/site is up to you.
Do I need to design my own logo?
When you sign up for a store it uses a default “Adult Store” logo. We strongly
recommend that you utilize your own logo to maintain branding continuity from
other sites you may have. However, if you do not have a logo we may provide one
for you through our third party designers. There may be a nominal charge to
provide logo design service.
What commission rate will I
We pay 20% on the gross product sales placed through your store. Commission rates
are directly related to your consumer product pricing. Depending on your audience/traffic you will need to determine how
price sensitive your target audience/customer base is.
How do I keep track of my sales?
Once you are signed up with us you will be provided with a secure user ID and
password. This ID and password enables you to log into the backend of our system
to keep track of all sales placed through your store. You will also be able to
view affiliates that sign up under you.
How and when will I be paid?
You will be paid by check on a monthly basis. Your commissions are calculated
from the first day of the month to last day of the month. We have a $250.00
minimum check writing policy. If your commissions do not total $250.00 for the
month, your commissions will be held to the following month or until they total
$250.00. For international resellers, we can provide you with payment via wire
transfer for a nominal fee, otherwise all payments are sent in US funds.

Yes. You can have multiple websites under the same account.
What if I currently sell Videos
and DVDs, can I offer novelties only through Effex Media?

Depending on your marketing mix, you may determine that standalone modules are
more effective for your target audience.
Do you ship internationally?

restricted from shipping to. Also, due to local legislation we are restricted
from shipping to some states and zip codes within the

How long does it take before my
store is active?
This depends on which URL option you select for your store. Any stores involving
DNS changes will take anywhere between 3-5 days to activate and fully propagate
around the Internet. We do have instant URL options that are available the
instant a store is created.
I just signed up for a store. What are my "URL" options?
If you would like to use your domain name for different purposes and
would like to only point a specific secondary-domain name to us,
ask your registrar (like Network Solutions or Register.com)
to create an A Record of your choice pointing to the following IPS based on your store configuration:
|For all configurations:
EXAMPLE: You wish to point www.johnsporn.com
to your own hosting provider (or to your servers). You wish to point
store.johnsporn.com to our store.
What you should do is to create an A Record "store" for johnsporn.com
and point it to 22.214.171.124.
If this is confusing to you, you will be much better off having us automatically
create a url for you. This will simplify and accelerate the process for you. It
will also save you (and us) some headaches.
