  2. Q. How does the Partner Program work?

    A. Hallelujah Acres allows participants access to a library of banner ads, text links, resources and printout materials, such as product price lists, printable flyers, newsletters and reports. Participants also will be able to access sales commission tracking and sales reports. The level of access depends on the participant’s level – Health Minister, Wholesaler or Business Partner.
