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 only supports Apple Performance Partners Program. This is an affiliate program that allows Apple partners to earn commissions on qualifying Apple Music memberships as well as sales of movies, tv shows, books, audiobooks, and more.

💡 Tip: You can learn more about the program requirements and how to apply for Content Partners and Other Partners via the Apple website.

🔔 Note: All payments for the Performance Partners Program are made by Apple. For more information on commissions and payments, check out the Apple Services Commissions and Payments or contact the Performance Partners Support team.
