    Hi,

    Being an affiliate for web hosting providers such as Bluehost, iPage, InMotion, etc is it wrong to offer extra benefits such as free wordpress themes or something else for customers whom purchase web hosting via my affiliate link?

    Kindly share your experience or advice...

    Why would it not be ok! Adding value for your customers is always ok....unless you're giving away stolen themes and pirated stuff, in which case you'll be in trouble.

    It will be good to go, You can also offer them extra service like installing of theme and customization (if you know how to do so). It will push them purchase from you.

    :) great to know, thanks...

    ... definitely not stolen themes or pirated stuff :D, thanks

    good suggestion, thanks

    thanks as well...

    As for why i was worried, it is due to this "Affiliate Restrictions and Responsibilities" stated in the affiliate agreement:

    Affiliates MAY NOT offer cash back, rewards or other incentives to drive traffic/sales via their affiliate tracking links.

    Does this means no value added services as suggested above?
