ShareASale: Why Do I Like It and How to Sign Up as an Affiliate


shareasale affiliate program

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 you receive the email notification upon approval, however, in my case, it took less than 24 hours.

1) Go to 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 straightforward, 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: in my case, because 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 the 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 a commission. They have a huge variety of products organised in categories and by Merchants.

  1. I also like ShareASale but can you give some tips on getting approval from advertisers on it. If a blog is on different niche than the advertisers product the how can i get approved on that?

    • As long as you are consistent with your business strategy and you let the advertisers your plan to promote their products, you will be approved. Think about, they want to sell as much as you want =)

    • Yes, it is very good, if you check my income reports I’m making money every month using ShareASale.

      However, I also use Clickbank and FlexOffers. These 3 together are performing very well.

  2. Hi,
    I am now approved by share a sale. You have explained the process very well.
    Keep up the awesome work.
    Thanks for sharing šŸ™‚

  3. Hey, I know it’s too late but can you please guide me a bit? Recently I applied for an account at Shareasale and they chose to decline my application.
    Now there is no link to reapply again, every time I try to sign up with a new username they say this website has already an account but when I login with that account they say your application is declined and you can send us a request again at any time, the main problem is that they never show me a link to reapply again.

    • Hi Adil,
      I’ve never experienced your situation before. I’ve been always approved during my first application.
      What I can tell you is that Shareasale customer support is very good, try to approach them via email (they always contact me back within 48 hours).
      Other option (last resource) would be to apply using a different email account so you will have a fresh start =)

    • There are no traffic requirements to join Shareasale, but a minimum of 1000 page views per month are recommended.
      The most important to be accepted is what you write in the short paragraph about yourself and your website”. You can use my template posted above and you’ll be fine.

  4. If I wanted to open a website with stuff I sell that I make and stuff from stores and or companies this will work. You said you also use Clickbank etc. Do they have their own band of doing things? Thanks.
