As a LunaMD Affiliate, you can earn commissions by referring customers to our products using your unique referral link, discount code, or QR code. If you're wondering whether you can place an order for someone else and still receive your commission, the answer is yes. However, there are important steps you need to follow to ensure you get credited for the referral.

Placing an Order for Someone Else and Earning Commission:

You can indeed place an order for someone else and earn a commission for the sale. To do this, follow the steps outlined below:

1. Use Their Email Account: When placing an order for someone else, make sure you are using an account associated with their email address. This is crucial for proper tracking and commission attribution.

2. Login to Their Account: Log out of your own customer account and log in using the customer account associated with their email address. If they do not have an existing account, you will need to create one for them using their email.

3. Place the Order: Add the desired products to the cart and proceed to the checkout process. During checkout, you will be prompted to provide the delivery address and payment details. Make sure to enter the correct information for the intended recipient.

4. Do Not Use ShopPay to Pay for the Order: After confirming the order details, proceed to complete the payment. Do not use ShopPay to pay for the order, as this may associate the order with your own account. Once the order is successfully placed and payed for with a method other than ShopPay, it will be associated with the customer account you used to log in.

5. Commission Attribution: With the order linked to the customer account associated with their email, any commission that is generated from this order will be credited to your affiliate account.

Important Points to Consider:

Account Ownership: It's important to emphasize that using your own customer account to place an order for someone else and changing the delivery address and payment details will not work for commission attribution.

New Customer Account: If the person for whom you're placing the order does not have an existing customer account, you can create one for them using their email address during the order placement process.

Communication: It's advisable to communicate with the person you're placing the order for to ensure accuracy in product selection, delivery address, and payment details.

Transparency: Always maintain transparency with the individual you're assisting by letting them know that you will be using their email address to place the order and receive the associated commission.

Followup: It's advisable to contact the individual you're assisting after the order is placed to ensure they received the LunaMD emails containing their order confirmation and login credentials for their Affiliate Dashboard. Sometimes these can go to the marketing/junk folders. 


Yes, you can place an order for someone else and still earn a commission as a LunaMD Affiliate. However, ensure that you are using their email address to place the order. By following these steps, you'll successfully earn your commission while providing valuable assistance to your referred customers.
