Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Affiliate?

An Affiliate of the program will provide and refer leads to the Start Up Loans scheme.

How does the application process work?

The application process works as follows: initially we’ll look at your business and establish if it represents Start Up Loans’ values. We’re required to carry out due diligence checks to ensure that you’re compliant with our requirements for an Affiliate of the programme. Once we’re satisfied with this, you’ll receive a copy of our Affiliate agreement form. Once that’s been signed on both sides, we’ll issue you with access to our Affiliate platform, along with relevant link, digital assets and logos.

What’s required?

Once you’ve applied via our Become an Affiliate page, providing your business and website meet our eligibility criteria, we’ll set you up on our Affiliate platform, Tradedoubler where you’ll be able to track your applicant’s progress. We will require you to sign an Affiliate agreement before you can get started.

I’m an Affiliate, now what?

Once you’re fully set up on the platform, and you now have our link and logos embedded on your site, please ensure you provide applicants with as much detail as possible, including the programme’s length, what we require from loan applicants and realistic expectations. For every applicant that receives funding, and that applied directly through your unique tracking link, you will receive a fixed commission payment of £200.00. You can see a full list of your sales and leads within Tradedoubler.

How do I track my leads?

You’re able to log in and track all your leads and sales within our Affiliate platform, Tradedoubler.

How do you support me?

You’re always able to ask questions and get in contact with our Affiliate support centre, here at affiliateapplications@startuploans.co.uk

How long on average does it take to go through the application process?

It is often difficult to estimate a time frame, as it depends on the length of due diligence checks. By way of a general guide, we’d estimate perhaps 1-2 weeks to successfully complete your application.

 

We strive to help our customers succeed with extensive pre-and-post loan support to ensure their loan application is successful.
