To register as an affiliate with Cosan/USA you must complete the application. We appreciate your accurate and honest information; please note that the review process may take a few days – we know you are eager to join our team of affiliates, and we appreciate your patience!
Upon approval, you will receive a unique referral ID that you can use to promote the selected Cosan/USA products via referral links. You will also receive a copy of the details and parameters for affiliate participation.
Commissions and payouts
Upon application approval, the affiliate will receive a list of commissions and payouts offered by Cosan/USA. The terms of this agreement will be accepted via email.
Referral cookie lifetime
When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is stored for 30 days to give your referred customer time to decide to purchase from Cosan/USA or ask us any pre-sale questions.
A referral is not awarded if:
- The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
- The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie expires).
Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e., the purchase was not refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals $50.00 or over). If a purchase is refunded, no commission will be paid for that referral.
We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:
- A refunded sale connected to the referral.
- The method used to generate the referral was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

As an affiliate, you agree to receive emails from Cosan/USA. These emails will only be sent to affiliates, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include valuable information regarding the Cosan/USA affiliate program.

As an affiliate you are responsible for the information in these emails and agree to act on them immediately if necessary. And we will not spam you, ever – promise!
