The ArtistBank affiliates programme enables you to earn income just by adding an ArtistBank banner to your website. You can then automatically earn up to 25%commission on packages purchased by artists that come via your website. It really is that easy.
Does it cost anything to become an ArtistBank affiliate?
Nothing, there are no fees of any kind for participating in the Affiliate programme and you earn commission right from the start.
What is the commission structure?
If you are keen to maximise revenue from your affiliation with ArtistBank we pay 25% Net when you place the large banner (200 pixels) on your Homepage, 20% for the medium (150 pixels) banner on your Homepage and 15% for the small (120 pixels) banner on your Homepage. When any of the banners are placed elsewhere on your site such as Links section etc. we pay 15% ('Net' is the package purchase price less VAT - British Sales Tax).
We recommend that all potential Affiliates read our Terms and Conditions below at the base of the Application Form. Then simply complete the Application Form to register your interest. Once approved, we will send you your Affiliate ID to insert in the HTML code of your chosen banner. You then just proceed as in Banner Graphics below.
Do I have to be an artist for my website to qualify?
No. Anyone who wishes to become an Affiliate can apply subject to having a qualifying website (see below).
Do all websites qualify to be affiliates?
Most websites will qualify to participate in the programme; however, we reserve the right to reject applications from websites we deem unsuitable. Examples of sites that would not qualify for participation include those that:
• promote sexually explicit material
• promote violence
• promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, national origin, physical disability, sexual orientation, or age
• promote illegal activities
• violate intellectual property rights
Artistbank tracks packages purchased by those introduced via our Affiliates sites using a special format that includes each affiliate's unique account code. Every time a customer follows one of those links to our site, this unique URL tells us which account sent the customer to us.
Tracking from your website
We track all visitors from your website with an identifier that is embedded in our system for 30 days from when they first visit. This means that if they do not Register and buy credits on the first visit any subsequent direct visit and purchase within 30 days will be credited to you.
When do I get paid?
We will pay your commission on a quarterly basis. Within 30 days following the end of each calendar quarter we will send you a cheque for the commission earned during that quarter. If the commission payment is less than £25 for the quarter we will hold over the amount until the next quarter. If you are an Affiliate based in the UK and registered for VAT please inform us of your registration number before the first payment is due as we use a self billing system for payments.
