Covalent Technologies Announces The Active Referral Network

Lincoln, NE - Covalent Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of commercial software and support for the Apache web server platform, announced today that it will begin paying for referrals through its new Active Referral Network.

"Covalent Technologies is excited to offer a way to pay others for spreading the word about our products and services," said Ryan Lindsay, V.P. of Sales at Covalent. "We've been very grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response to our Raven SSL module. The AR Network is a way of showing our appreciation for the valuable word-of-mouth advertising our customers have been providing."
Participants in the AR Network link their Web site to Covalent's and get paid for product sales resulting from referrals. There is no charge to participate, and agents receive a referral payment of 5% of the sale price of each Raven SSL license, excluding shipping, handling, and taxes.
The process for becoming an agent involves acceptance of an operating agreement and completion of an online application available at Once registered, agents receive a unique ID number and can use images and instructions at Covalent's Web site to establish a hyperlink. Archived online reports, accessible at any time, provide feedback regarding site visitors, referrals, and sales figures. Automatic direct deposit payments are made monthly.

"Suggesting related products makes a Web site richer and increases traffic," said Lindsay. "The tools we provide make it easy to add commerce to a site, and our online reporting system lets agents track sales on a daily basis."

Covalent Technologies provides e-commerce solutions for the Apache web server platform. Its primary product is the Raven SSL module, which provides for secure Internet transactions. More information about Covalent Technologies and the AR Network is available by calling 800-444-1935 or visiting
