Affiliates earn a commission on Specimen Evaluation Form referrals sent to IdentifyUS. We provide interested parties with a snippet of code that you can embed on your own website that will direct your customers to an easy-to-use, online, co-branded Specimen Evaluation Form. If your end user audience has any interest in identifying a pest for whatever reason, consider joining our affiliate program. It's a great way to engage your customers to the benefit of all parties.
We keep track of submissions/referrals coming from your website and pay a monthly commission for all new and recurring paying customers you send our way. There is nothing you have to do except host a web page with some code that offers IdentifyUS specimen evaluation services. This is an ideal way to earn additional revenue with minimal effort while offering a valuable service to your customer base. The benefit of utilizing IdentifyUS for this service is that we offer independent, objective third party expertise and have no bias to sell or recommend additional and potentially unnecessary products or services. Customers receive a fast, detailed response from IdentifyUS and can make informed decisions on how to proceed once a positive identification of the pest or species in question has been made.
