YES, YOU CAN MAKE
MONEY ON LABHSM TOO!
We have partnered
with share-it!, a
global e-commerce provider for software sales via the
Internet to be able to provide you with the best
affiliate program possible. When you click on the
Register Now! link below you will be taken to
our page on the Share-it! site where you can register as our
affiliate. Then we will provide you with a special link
that you could place on your website (Don't have a
website? Just email that link to
potential customers or even give it out on printed
cards, if you want). A discounted price and your
affiliate ID will be built-in into the link. (Don't
worry, it will have a control sum as well, so if anybody
tries to modify the price, the link won't work). That special link will let your
customers buy LabHSM at a discounted price and you
will receive a commission for every sale!
This method allows you to not have comprehensive advertising
of the LabHSM on your site. In
fact, you don't have to do almost any of advertising at
all! You can just refer (maybe even by simply telling)
all the people who may be interested in LabHSM to this
site for all the details. Of course, you will need
to explain to them that they can save by using your
special link instead of our registration link.
That's it! You will guarantee yourself a commission if
they eventually decide to buy LabHSM! Who would want to
pay more if they can pay less, right?
If you develop custom LabVIEW
applications with LabHSM, your clients must
buy their own LabHSM license anyway. So, let them do it
through you as our affiliate and then YOU will receive commission on
every license sold this way too!
Don't register as an affiliate
just to get a discounted price for yourself. Your order
will not be accepted. The discounted price link we
provide you with will be valid FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS only.
Still want to save on a license for
yourself? Here is how you can "cheat":
- Find at least one other person or
company who needs LabHSM too.
- Register both as our
- Buy LabHSM using each other's
This way every participant will get both the discounted price and the
commission! Why are we telling you about this
"know-how"? Well, we hope that you and/or your partner(s)
in this little trick know more than just one other
person or company who could use LabHSM! Think about it:
If you refer just several customers and they buy LabHSM,
your license effectively can become free. If you just
talk to a few more people, you can make a lot of money
for yourself just by letting them know about LabHSM

following affiliate FAQ from the share-it! site we
reproduce here for your convenience:
|I signed up - what
Next, share-it! reviews the information of each newly
registered Affiliate and then informs the Publisher.
Because the Publisher can either accept a partnership
with an Affiliate right away or decide to review the
Affiliate's information, there may be a slight delay
until you are activated as an Affiliate. The length of
this delay depends on how often the Publisher reviews
Affiliate information. In any event, we will keep you
informed via e-mail as to the status of your request.
Once you have registered and been activated, you will
receive your login data for the Affiliate Control Panel.
The Control Panel contains detailed information about
your partnerships and products. After your account is
activated by a particular Publisher, you may then embed
links on your Web site and begin to market these
In the "Products" section of the Control Panel, you can
generate links to particular products or request
authorization from the Software Publisher to market
Once you receive authorization from the Publisher, you
can initiate two types of sales:
1. You can place a direct link to the Publisher's Web
site. Once you have decided which products you would
like to market, use the Link Generator in the Control
Panel (in the "Products" section) to activate the links
from the product pages to the sales system. These links
automatically contain your Affiliate ID, thereby
ensuring that your sales are recorded. Then these links
can then be embedded into your Web site.
2. Place a link to the Publisher's Web site. While this
method may not lead directly to sales, it does set a
cookie on the visitor's computer that detects whether
the visitor becomes attentive to the Web site because of
you. In this way, you receive your commission in the
case of a sale. To place this type of link, use the Link
Generator in the Control Panel.
|How can you make sure
that all of my referrals are accounted for?
There are two methods to track your sales: You can
choose to rely on the affiliate ID, which is contained
in your unique order link, or you can have us place a
cookie on the user's machine with your affiliate ID
stored in it. If the user purchases the software at a
later time, the cookie will be recognized and the sale
assigned to you.
|When will I get paid
share-it! sends out Payment Reports to affiliates on
the 8th of the each month for the previous month's

month's earnings, provided you reach the minimum payment

the software publishers themselves. They will indicate

You will be informed of any changes in commission by
e-mail that occur after activation by a publisher.
|Which payment methods
and currencies are available for me to receive
You can receive payments either by check or wire
transfer, in USD, EUR or GBP. You can set your preferred
payment method in the Control Panel under "Personal
| I haven't received
my payment for last month's sales, what do I do?
There are many reasons that your payment may have not
arrived. If you have pre-set a transfer limit and this
limit has not been reached, or your balance has not
exceeded our lower limit (see question above), the
payment will be held until the limit is reached.
If you did not define a limit for your payment, or
believe your payment may have been held in error, please
contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to
give wire transfers ample time to post to your account!
|Are there any costs
participating as an affiliate?
There are no monthly or fixed costs to you for
participating in share-it!'s affiliate program.
|What information will
I receive on my sales?
You have access to sales reports in the Affiliate
Control Panel, where you can view your sales and
earnings by date. share-it! does not provide the
end-user customer's data to you as this remains the
property of the publisher of the software.
|How should I promote
You can place the referral links anywhere on your
website. It is typically a good idea to place them with
complementing products or related topics to help
generate referrals. Since you have a lot of flexibility
with the links, you can also try out different locations
of the links on your website to gauge their
|How can a terminate a
partnership with a software author / publisher?
In your Affiliate Control Panel, you can display all
your partnerships in the section "Products". Simply
filter by "Partnership exists". For each partnership,
you will find a button "Terminate partnership". Then
simply remove the links from your website after you
submitted your termination request.
|Can I adapt the order
process to the "look & feel" of my own website?
Yes, you can edit your styles in the Affiliate
Control Panel, where you can set a default style for the
order process with the share-it! Style Editor.
