Do you have a website with a decent volume of traffic or maybe a Facebook group that posts bargains and coupons? Maybe you have a YouTube channel or a review blog with an established fanbase or you post a lot on forums? If so then you might be eligible to be one of our Bounty Hunters.
How does it work?
If your application is successful then you will be given a referral code which is exclusive to you. You can add that code to any Gear4Geeks link – the home page, a category or a product and when someone clicks that link, we know they have come to the site from your recommendation. For the seven days following them clicking your link, you will get a percentage of everything they buy – the more they spend, the more money you make. Best of all, they don’t even have to buy the product you linked to!
How much will I get?
We offer 3.5% of every sale (not including postage/shipping). Some affiliates may be offered different percentages depending on their traffic.
How often do I get paid?
We pay out any commissions earned on the 1st of each month by Paypal.
What if I don’t make any sales?
If you’re unable to make any sales in one year then your affiliate account may be closed. You may apply again in future.
What else should I know?
We don’t tolerate the spamming of our links anywhere, complaints of spamming will result in affiliate account suspension.
We also monitor for co-operation between affiliates where affiliates click each other links, this will result in immediate affiliate account suspension and non-payment of commission.
Affiliates also cannot earn commission by clicking on their own links.
Sounds good! What next?
