What is an affiliate program and how does it work?
An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (that's yourself) drives traffic to a merchant's web site (that's us) in exchange for a referral commission. When a visitor on your website or in an email clicks on the affiliate link to our website and completes a purchase, you get a commission on every product they buy. Alternatively, if a coupon code is handed out offline, then you will receive commission this way.
Our software provides our affiliates with tracking, reporting, prompt monthly payments, as well as dedicated support.
Once you sign up and are accepted to our program, you can log in at any time to get our banners and links, find out about commissions earned, learn about how many impressions each of your links have received and much more.
How do I get started?
Step 1: Sign up!
Step 2: We manually review all applications within 24 hours. Once your application is approved, you will receive a detailed welcome letter and be able to access your account to get started.
Step 3: Collect your commission.
Who can participate?
Just about anybody. Whether you run a large commercial web site, a small personal blog, a non-profit site, or anything in between, you're welcome to apply to join the program. Our program is not just aimed for those online. We actively encourage those who are members of communities to join via word of mouth.
We also welcome owners of opt-in e-mail newsletters. All applications are manually reviewed, and we reserve the right to refuse any application, especially if the site or e-mail list contains objectionable material, participates in unsolicited e-mailing or if it violates the Discovery Mundo Service Agreement.
Does it cost anything to participate?
Absolutely not. As long as you are an active affiliate, all you need to do is keep linking and / or referring people to our website and collect your commissions.
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 sixty 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 sixty days.
With the offline approach, affiliates can obtain an exclusive coupon code which buyers can enter during checkout. When this coupon code is used, you will automatically be commissioned.
Discovery Mundo record all transactions from external websites in real time, meaning that all impressions, links, and sales are tracked instantly. The Discovery Mundo Account Area has all of the reports and tracking resources you'll need to see how you're doing. You can use these reports to find out which of your links are performing the best and to optimise your site for maximum sales.
How much will I earn? How and when do I get paid?
All new affiliates can earn commissions of up to 8% based on performance, with a cookie length of sixty days.
Discovery Mundo pays affiliates monthly and when the commission balance is $20 or more. Please refer to the Discovery Mundo Terms & Conditions for more information.
