It is always free to join ShareASale as an Affiliate, the sign-up process is quick and easy and once you are approved into the ShareASale network, thousands of Merchant Programs will be waiting for you to join them as a partner.
Once you have selected Merchants to partner with, you can get their creatives and use them on your website or blog. You will get paid as sales occur through these links and you will be able to see all the information inside informational reports like your Activity Details.
How Do I Get Paid?
Affiliates can choose to get paid by check, the minimum payment threshold is $50. They can raise this to a higher payment trigger amount if they like. This is done from inside the payment settings tab under account settings.
Affiliates can also be paid by ACH direct deposit or wire transfer. If the Affiliate chooses to have payments sent through direct deposit, they need to fill out the form found here in Payment Settings. They will also need specific information from their checks or bank to complete this form. Also, while there is no fee for direct deposit, there is a 29 dollar fee for wire transfers.
When Do I Get Paid?
Payments are sent out on the 20th of every month for the previous month’s commissions (unless the Merchant has opted for an extended lock date). Commissions that an Affiliate earns in January, for example, are eligible for payment on February 20th. If the 20th falls on a weekend, payments are sent out on the following Monday.
If Affiliates have any questions about this, please contact our support team and they will be happy to answer any payment questions.
Where is my Money?
Affiliates can easily find why a payment hasn’t shown up in the Rejected Payment Report.
It is fairly common to have one number be out of place or something similar, resulting in a payment not arriving to the Affiliate. With this report, it is easy to see if a payment has been rejected and also see the status of the payment.
We have a 90-day cancellation policy. Unless returned to ShareASale, checks cancelled within 90 days from the original issue date have a $35 cancellation fee.
If an Affiliate waits until after 90 days, we can re-issue their check free of charge. Affiliates should always make sure their address is updated within their ShareASale account.
