What is an affiliate program? How does it work?
The Getsy affiliate program is a revenue-sharing program where the registered affiliate user (you) directs traffic to our web site (EtsyClone.com) in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor on your website clicks on the affiliate link to our site and completes a purchase, you get a 30% commission on every item they buy!
Log in to your affiliate account at any time to get our banners and links, find out what commissions you have earned, and even learn about how many impressions each of your links has received.
Why Join our Affiliate Program?
How do I get started?
Step 1: Sign up!
Step 2: We manually review all applications within 3 business days. Once your application is approved, you will be able to log in to your account, and use the available banners and text links on your web site.
Step 3: Earn money!
Who can participate?
Anyone running a website is welcome to our affiliate community, whether it is a personal blog, a community website, or a targeted web portal. We also welcome owners of opt-in e-mail newsletters. All applications are manually reviewed, and we reserve the right to refuse any application.
Do I have to pay to become an affiliate, or to retain my status?
Participating in the program is free – in fact WE pay YOU for each sale made through your affiliate links (as long as it follows the rules).
How are sales tracked from my site?
Once your application is accepted, you will be given a unique affiliate ID as well as custom-formatted links that will ensure that traffic coming from your site is properly tracked. We maintain a 45-day cookie, meaning that if a visitor clicks on a link from your site, you are credited with the sale as long as the visitor purchases within 45 days.
We record all transactions from your site in real time, meaning that all impressions, links, and sales are tracked instantly. All the reports and tracking resources you are going to need can be found in your affiliate account. You can use these reports to find out which of your links are performing the best and to optimize your site for maximum sales.
Can I refer myself?
No. If you join our affiliate program and use the affiliate link to buy a product for yourself, you will not receive your commission. It is against the terms to self-refer yourself and doing so will result in the termination of your account.
Do I have to use/buy your products to become an affiliate?
No, you are not required to buy our products to become an affiliate.
If I become an affiliate do I get free goods or services?
No, participating in our affiliate program doesn't entitle you to free products or services. You can order them using your referral earnings.
How and when do I get paid?
After you join our affiliate program you will need to have at least two sales from two separate clients to be eligible for withdrawals. Your affiliate earnings are paid out upon your request using PayPal.
Can I collect customers' orders myself, and then send you the details?
No, you only provide the links to our website for your users to follow. Any customers you refer must reach our website and complete their purchases by themselves.
Can I use spam to promote this affiliate program?
No. Sending unsolicited e-mail is against the Terms and Conditions of this program, and will result in the termination of your account. Do not send e-mail to people you do not personally know, or who have not explicitly agreed to receiving messages from you.
What income can I expect?
That will depend on
We currently offer 30% of each completed and approved sale as a commission for our affiliate partners. The important thing is that there is no limit on the amount you can earn!
