Who is Interactive Life Forms, LLC?
Interactive Life Forms, LLC, or ILF, LLC, is the parent company of Fleshlight and all other sites in the Fleshlight Network. Interactive Life Forms, LLC was formed in 1997. The owner of ILF, LLC and inventor of Fleshlight products is a former Los Angeles police officer. More than a decade ago, the inventor's wife became pregnant with twins. Doctors warned that there was a potential for the pregnancy to become complicated and advised that the couple should refrain from intercourse for the duration of the pregnancy. Partly due to his experience as a police officer, being witness to the abusive sexual behavior or men, and out of a desire to remain faithful to his wife during the pregnancy, the inventor of Fleshlight sought to produce a product which would meet his sexual needs and provide all men with a healthy alternative to expressing themselves sexually in such a way which would put themselves or others at risk. After years of development and investing more than a million dollars, the patented Super Skin™ was born. To date, more than three million Fleshlight products have been sold to men all over the world.
What makes Fleshlight unique?
Fleshlight stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Our patented material, Super Skin™, surpasses all of its competition as the most realistic and durable material on the market. The Fleshlight Case, covered by United States patent number 5,782,818, serves a number of unique functions, including providing a discreet method of storage for the Fleshlight Masturbation Sleeve, enhances the sensation of the Fleshlight masturbation sleeve, creates suction during use and assists in keeping things clean during and after use. Finally, the Fleshlight masturbation sleeve is designed for long-term use amidst a myriad of products designed for single use. The material maintains its shape and texture and does not deteriorate over time. If used properly, Fleshlight products can last for years of regular use.

How It Works
What method do you use to track clicks?
Transaction may be deemed to be resulting directly from a Qualifying Link tracked by FNC from your website to the Merchant Website if:
(i) such purchase is made during the time period set forth by us through the Affiliate Network after the customer has initially entered our website through your tracked Qualifying Link ("Revenue Share Time"). After the Revenue Share Time, we will not pay referral fees on any products that are added to a customer's shopping cart after the customer has re-entered our website (other than through a Qualifying Link from your website), even if the customer previously followed a link from your website to our website.
When do I receive credit for a sale?
Unlike membership programs, a purchase is considered complete not when it is submitted but when it actually ships to the customer. Affiliates do not receive credit for sales generated unless the sale is successful and the products purchased ship to the recipient. For instance, a visitor might submit an order but their credit card could be declined or they might opt to send payment in the mail rather than supply a credit card at all. Submitted orders are automatically updated by our system and move through a series of status levels prior to being shipped. New orders are "pending" until payment is received. Once payment is verified they move to "processing" while staff in our distribution center work to fulfill the order. Finally, once the order is filled and scanned, it moves to "completed" status and the affiliate receives credit for the sale. You might also see orders in "declined" status, which implies that payment could not be processed, "canceled" status, which implies that the customer contacted our staff and canceled their order, or "pending" status, which implies that we are waiting for payment from the customer.
What does each of the status levels for an order mean?
Here is a list of different Order Status levels for your review:
- Pending - The order has been submitted but payment has not been received or, in the case of an online check, the payment is being processed.
- Declined - The order has been submitted but payment was not processed successfully.
- Cancelled - The order was submitted but was cancelled per the request of the customer.
- Error - The order has been received and payment was processed successfully, but there was an error during the shipping process. These issues are typically resolved in 24-48 hours.
- Payment Received - All received orders which are processed successfully are updated to this status prior to moving on to Processing.
- Processing - Payment has been processed successfully and the order is in our fulfillment center being prepared for departure.
- Completed - The order has been prepared by our shipping staff and is considered complete. Commissions are applied to your affiliate account at this time.
- CSR Hold - This status is employed by our customer service staff in the event that there are issues with the order which require additional attention. These issues are typically resolved in 24-48 hours.
What if a customer returns an order, refuses it at point of shipment, or files a chargeback?
Should an order, which you've already received credit for generating, be returned to our facility for a refund, your commission will be reversed. Likewise for an order which was charged back by the customer (assuming we were not able to reverse the chargeback).
What's the average sale amount?
Our average sale amount, including shipping, is $100 USD.
Will I receive credit for subsequent sales from a customer I refer?
As long as the visitor continues to carry your cookie and the subsequent sale occurs within the time period set forth by us, you will receive credit for the sale.
Why is my commission less than up to *30% of the total sale amount?
We do not offer commissions on the shipping fees paid by the customer. You'll receive commissions on the total product value only.
How do I check my stats? What stats are available for review?
Legacy: You must have an active affiliate account at FNCash.com and be sending traffic using your FNCash link code structure to review your stats. Login to your account at www.FNCash.com/login and click on the "Stats" tab in the page header. You'll have access to two tabs: Conversion Stats and Referrer Stats.
Impact Radius: https://member.impactradius.com/bla/Interactive-Life-Forms-LLC/login.user
You can segment and view your stats by website, campaign and date range. You are able to view each date separately for the selected date range and obtain information regarding the number of raw and unique hits generated via your account, the number of placed versus shipped orders, the conversion ratio and the total commission earned. If you have pending or completed orders, you can click on the arrow next to the date in reference and view detailed information regarding those orders, including the order ID, the location (city/state/country) of the purchaser, the payment method, the order's status, the associated campaign, the total amount of the order and the amount of the commission due (for "Completed" orders). By rolling your mouse cursor over the pending or completed order, you'll also be able to view the products purchased and the referral link responsible for the sale.
The Referrer Stats view is similar to the Conversion Stats; however, when you click the arrow next to a particular date, you're able to view a full list of referring URLs (clickable), the number of unique visits from the URL, the number of orders placed from that URL and the ratio of orders placed to unique visits.
