Affiliate Monetization Policies

In order for Affiliates to utilize monetization tools on MiHub, they must comply with a set of rules called Affiliate Monetization Policies


These rules apply to all Pages, Profiles in professional mode, Events, and Groups on MiHub.


Affiliate Policies


In order to earn money on MiHub, you must:


Create the content on an eligible surface


At this time, monetization features are available for public content on MiHub, Profiles in professional mode, Events, and Groups. Content paid for on MiHub, but consumed on a third-party site, may be eligible for monetization. MiHub profiles outside of professional mode are ineligible for monetization products and features.


Reside in an eligible country

To monetize, you must reside in an eligible country where the product or feature is available. You may lose your ability to monetize if you move to an ineligible location or if MiProfie changes product eligibility.


Follow our Community Standards

These rules apply to all posts and interactions on MiHub, including rules against hate speech, calls for violence, sexualized content, and inauthentic behavior. Any content posted by Affiliates that violates our Community Standards, including our policies regarding intellectual property, authenticity, and user safety, may cause Affiliates to become ineligible or lose their eligibility to monetize.


Follow our Content Monetization Policies

Monetized content must pass an additional level of standards above and beyond our Community Standards. These additional rules are called Content Monetization Policies. These include deeper restrictions on the content itself and the formats in which it is presented.


Share authentic content

Affiliates posting content flagged as misinformation and false news may be ineligible or may lose their eligibility to monetize. Affiliates sharing clickbait or sensationalism may be ineligible or lose their eligibility to monetize. Affiliates posting content reported to MiProfile as unlawful by an authorized entity may be ineligible or lose their eligibility to monetize. 


Share original content

Affiliates can only monetize content that they created or were involved in the creation of, or that directly features the Affiliate. Content that is unoriginal or reproduced without making meaningful enhancements (commentary, parody, creative editing, etc.) cannot be monetized. Affiliate entity content distributed by third-party providers, such as multi-channel networks or social media agencies, may be considered original content.


Monetize authentic engagement

Affiliates can only monetize content consumed by their natural, authentic audience. This means Affiliates may not engage in any behavior that boosts or amplifies followers, views, or engagement for the purpose of generating more revenue. This includes manufactured sharing, which is the coordinated distribution of content, often for compensation, and high-volume crossposting. Pages managed by a third-party provider, such as a multi-channel network, are able to share content from affiliate entities, so long as the multi-channel network and affiliate talent, creators, and content providers are not monetizing the same piece of content.

Affiliates may lose the ability to monetize if their audience significantly consists of fake engagement, including, but not limited to, Likes, follows, and views.


Follow our Payment Terms

Affiliates must comply with MiProfile's rules for making and receiving payouts. 


Develop an established presence


Affiliates must have an authentic, established presence on MiHub. To be eligible for all monetization features means having an established presence for at least 30 days. To gain access to in-stream ads, this also includes maintaining a sufficient follower base, indicated by your MiHub followers, and a minimum number of videos. 


Follow our rules for politicians and governments
The following political and government entities are ineligible for monetization:
  • Current elected and appointed government officials
  • Current political candidates
  • Political parties
  • Registered political committees
  • Government agencies and departments


Communications that are regulated as political advertising under applicable law are also ineligible for monetization features. However, in the United States, the branded content tool may be used in branded content posts if the paying partner has been authorized to run ads about social issues, elections, or politics. 


Only connect to entities that follow MiProfile policies
Monetized Affiliates and those that have not been onboarded to a monetization product, may lose the ability to monetize if an entity connected to it has violated these policies.
