How much does participation in the BALÍK PLUS network cost?
Participation, as well as logging into the BALÍK PLUS network, is free for all partners. Also, advertising inserts for insertion into packages will be delivered to you for free. There are no costs except the necessity to insert the advertising insert and samples into your packages.
What happens after registration in the BALÍK PLUS network?
After registering in the BALÍK PLUS network, we will send you information about the current insertion offer and how to insert advertising supplements. The order for inserting advertising inserts is voluntary and it is up to you which inserts you chose
from the current offering. An offer of individual inserts, as well as the order for their insertions, can be handled in your personal account. Advertising inserts will be delivered to the location of your choice – you just start inserting or attaching them to your parcel shipments. In order to have an accurate view of how many advertising inserts you have already sent, you must inform us at least once a week by entering the quantity of sent materials through your personal account. You rewards linked to your insertions are sent to you on a monthly basis.
What does participation in the BALÍK PLUS network mean for my day-to-day business?
For you as a partner, participation in the BALÍK PLUS network only requires a necessity to insert a maximum of 4 advertising inserts or samples per package. From an operational point of view, this should not be anything extra since you need to add an invoice, delivery note or other documents anyway.
Can I decide which insert from actual offer do I want to insert?
Selection of the insert, which will be inserted in your packets, is solely up to you. You can choose which insert you want to insert and which one not.
Do I pay the delivery of advertising inserts from BALÍK PLUS?
Delivery of materials is free. Advertising inserts or samples are delivered to your address free of charge.
What are the requirements for reporting the amount of sent advertising materials?
Completing the status report regarding the amount of sent advertising inserts will not take you more than two minutes.
Just update the number of realized shipments in your personal account of our web application.
How much can I earn in the BALÍK PLUS network?
The monetary reward depends on the offer, as well as on the volume of the inserts you have inserted. Reward for insertion
is graded according to the type, weight and size of the advertising inserts. All advertising inserts that are suitable for your segment are always located in your personal account. We will also inform you by e-mail about every new offer we post to your personal account. The fee for each insert will be defined in advance.
You can send up to four different advertising inserts in one package. If you add your own promotional material in the shipment, you may distribute up to 3 inserts from BALÍK PLUS. Delivery notes and invoices are not considered in the number of insertions. We know from experience that more inserts can negatively influence the customer’s attention and can cause a decrease
of campaign response.
When do I get compensation for the insertion of advertising inserts?
You can continuously see the amount of rewards in your personal account. On the 15th of the following month we will send you
a statement for the previous month. Fees will be paid out within 14 days after receiving the invoice you issue us for the compensation.
The minimum amount to be paid is 100 €. If your fees do not reach this level in one month, the value is transferred to the next calendar month until the amount reaches the minimum payment amount. In the last month of the year, the minimum amount to be paid is reduced to €50.
Why do you need evidence of sending and how it should look like?
Verification of the number of distributed packages is the standard process, on the basis of which we give our clients a guarantee
of advertising insert distribution.
As proof that you sent a certain quantity of materials, you can submit a document where we can identify the number of shipments you sent during the month. It can be a monthly invoice from your logistics partner (courier company, post office, etc.). All personal or other sensitive data can be covered; it is important to see only the number of sent items for the given period.
Why don’t I get all the advertising inserts I asked for?
Reasons why you have not received all the promotional inserts that you requested may be the following:
- Inserts are no longer available because they were already ordered by other partners.
- You are already sending four inserts per parcel.
- A presented insert cannot be distributed together with another simultaneously inserted product (i.e. competitive exclusion).
The exact reason can be found in the relevant e-mail that you always receive from us.
