EW AFFILIATE PROGRAM

The East West School of Planetary Herbology (East West Herb School) now offers an affiliate program! This plan is an opportunity for you to make a commission on any referral you send to our school who purchases an East West Herb School herb course.

AFFILIATE COMMISSION

East West Herb School pays affiliates a 10% commission on any of our herb courses unless explicitly stated otherwise. Exceptions might include special promotions and individual affiliate agreements.

PRODUCTS: HERB COURSES

With the purchase of any of these courses, students are given access to live chats and multiple forums to discuss their studies with professional herbalists and other students.

SUBSCRIPTION EARNINGS

The East West Herb School affiliates earn commissions on subsequent course purchases, not just the first time purchase.
