What is an affiliate program?

An affiliate program is when a company pays you a commission for giving them referral traffic, generating sales, or giving them more page impressions. You might hear terms like Cost per click, Cost per acquisition, or Cost per impression. These are different ways companies can pay you a commission. The payment can range from a few cents per click to a percentage of the total sale.

Currently, Linktree supports Apple Performance Partners Program, book advertisers from Commission Junction (Barnes & Noble, Better World Books, Tidal, and Books a Million), and Amazon Affiliate Program (Amazon associates).

  • The Apple affiliate program allows Apple partners to earn commissions on qualifying Apple Music memberships as well as sales of movies, tv shows, books, audiobooks, and more.

  • The Commission Junction affiliate program allows advertisers from Barnes & Nobles, Better World Books, Books a Million, and Tidal to earn a commission.

  • The Amazon Affiliate Program allows Amazon associates to receive commissions from referral traffic. This program is available for all 19 associate countries.

🔔 Note: Apple, Commission Junction and Amazon make all the payments for their affiliate programs. For more information on commissions and payments, check out the Apple Services Commissions and Payments, Commission Junction Payment Cycle, and Amazon Payment Schedule.
