The first time I heard about ShareASale I was looking for a specific product to promote in one of my websites. The merchant affiliate program was through ShareASale.
I did never hear about them before but it was the only way to promote this product, so reading a little bit about them I was determined to give it a try.
The truth is that the application procedure was very easy and in less than 24 hours I was approved.
How to Sign Up as an Affiliate with ShareASale
Submitting the application takes only around 5 minutes. Once applied the ShareASale team needs to review it and according to their websites it takes 1 to 3 days until your receive the email notification upon approval, however in my case it took less than 24 hours.
1) Go to ShareASale.com and click on Affiliate Sign Up.
2) Choose your Username and Create a Password.
You need to select your country of residence as well.
Be aware that the username cannot be changed later. Password and country of residence can be changed after being approved.
3) Choose your Primary Affiliate Website
This step is straight forward, there are few “Yes/No” questions that will take less than a minute to answer.
The following steps are very easy:
- Email Address: you just need to enter your primary email address. If you opt for the Fast Track option the review process will take less time. The Fast Track option consists in adding an email with the extension of your domain, like for example: firstname.lastname@example.org in my case, because passiveincomewise.com is my domain name.
- Write a short paragraph about yourself and your website. You have a total of 240 characters to tell them why you should be approved for their program. Something like the following might help.
“Estimated ShareASale team, my website is a home and decoration blog with an average of 3,000 unique visits per month. I also have a Facebook group with 500 likes and 800 followers in Twitter. I would like to promote some of the products from ShareASale as I think my readers will like. Thank you.”
As easy as that. They are not very picky about approvals as long as what you write makes sense.
The last two steps are to select payment method and agree to the terms and conditions, and you are done! Then, you will need to check your email for a confirmation link.
The approval process can take between 1-3 days, depending on your individual application. They will send you an email saying that your application has been approved.
Congratulations! You are now a new partner from ShareASale. Now, you will be able to sell and promote their products and earn commission. They have a huge variety of products organised in categories and by Merchants.
This is an example of some of my earnings with ShareASale, but I’m sure you can do it even better. Remember the best thing, it’s completely free!
One of the cool things is that if you refer Merchants you will get $150 straight forward.
That’s everything for today wisers!
