Yes. AllPosters.com images are copyrighted, and it is legal for you to display them on your Website as long they are used as affiliate links. Don’t forget to mention that you are "In association with AllPosters.com."
 

I operate multiple Websites. Should I sign up each one separately?
No. You can use the same account for all Websites that you have. If you want to track each Website’s sales and clicks separately, you can do this by establishing Website IDs that are part of your account. The advantage of doing this is that you will receive a single check for all of your Websites. This makes it easier to reach higher commission percentage levels and quicker to reach the minimum bank account balance needed to receive payment.
 
How do I sign up?
Fill out our Affiliates Application Form  and agree to the terms of our Operations Agreement. You will then receive an email with information on how to get started creating links on your Website!
 
I live in Rhode Island, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Georgia and want to become an affiliate. Why aren’t Rhode Island, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Georgia affiliates accepted into the program?
At this time we are not accepting applications from residents of Rhode Island, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Georgia as a result of a law passed by these states that changes the definition of a sales tax retailer.
 

How many different ways can I link to AllPosters.com?
You can link to AllPosters.com with product links, dynamic poster stores, logos, search boxes, banners, and text links. You can also choose to link to different destinations on our Website such as specific items, categories, or our homepage.
 
How do I build links?
It's easy. Login to our affiliates area and go to our LinkBuilder. You choose the type of link you want and our Website will generate the HTML (you don’t even need to copy the images to your Website). Then you can just copy and paste the code into your Website pages or have it sent to you through email.
 
Are there a certain number or types of links that I must place on my Website?
No. It is completely up to you in regards to the amount and types of links you choose to display. We encourage you to use many images, since this will increase your click-through rate and commission earnings.
 
How can I check that my links are working properly?
To ensure that your affiliate links to AllPosters.com are working properly, go ahead and click through some of your links. Give the system one day for the clicks to register to your account and then go to Traffic & Sales --> Statistics. Select "Yesterday" as the time frame and "Traffic" as the report and then click on "Generate Report". If your links are working properly, you will see the clicks recorded in the report. If you are still unsure whether your links are functional, e-mail us at affiliates@allposters.com and we will take a look.
 

How do I know if I have made any sales?
To check your sales, commissions, and traffic, go to the Reports section. Select the type of report you wish to view from the left margin (e.g. Sales Summary, Traffic Summary). After you have selected the specific report you would like to view, choose the Website, tracking ID and period of time for which you would like to see results and then click "Generate Report".
 
How does AllPosters.com track sales from my Website?
We track sales coming from your Website using an unique "Website ID and Tracking ID" in your links. Based on the "Website ID and Tracking ID" in the link, we can identify each visitor that comes from your Website and credit your sales and traffic accordingly.
 
If someone clicks on a particular item link and then purchases a different item(s), does the commission still apply?
Yes! Based on your unique "Website ID and Tracking ID", we are able to track any sales referred from your Website. You earn commission on all sales of posters, prints, calendars, magnets, mounting, framing, etc. (excluding shipping & handling and tax).
 

How much do I get paid?
We pay 20% commission to standard affiliates. Coupon Affiliates earn 2.5% commission. A "Coupon Affiliate" is an affiliate whose business model substantially consists of making coupons available. Whether an affiliate is classified as a Coupon Affiliate is determined by us in our sole discretion.
 
If someone clicks on a particular item link and then purchases a different item, can I still earn commission on the sale?
Yes! You are eligible to earn the commission on all such sales regardless of how you link to us or what the customer purchases.
 
What is my Bank Account and when are payments made?
Your Bank Account keeps track of the commission credits you have earned. Commission payments are made approximately 30 days after the end of each month. You will be issued a commission payment following each month in which your commission credit balance is greater than $20.00 (for domestic affiliates) or $100.00 (for international affiliates).

In addition to the minimum commission credit balance rule described above, our program is also subject to a Minimum Annual Threshold requirement. No bonuses or commission will be due or payable to you unless and until you reach the Minimum Annual Threshold during the applicable program year. Once the Minimum Annual Threshold requirement is satisfied for the program year, payouts occur on a monthly cycle as described above. The Minimum Annual Threshold is $20.00. If you do not earn bonus credits or commission credits in aggregate excess of the applicable Minimum Annual Threshold, you will not be owed any commission and the credit balance in your account will be reduced to zero at the end of the program year. See the  Operations Agreement for details.
 
When do I get paid?
Subject to the Minimum Annual Threshold requirement, you get paid as soon as your commission credit balance exceeds the payout threshold of $20.00 (for domestic affiliates) or $100.00 (for international affiliates).

Suggestion for tax form directions:

  1. Tax Information Policy

    As an affiliate you are required to submit a W-9 form for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), for which a U.S. tax ID such as a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) or Social Security Number (SSN) is needed. A copy of the w9 form can be obtained throught the this link:
    http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf?portlet=3

    Please ensure that the name listed on the w9 form matches what is listed on your affliate account, and please include your Affiliate ID at the top right hand corner of the w9 form.

    If you do not provide a completed W-9 form, federal taxes will be withheld from your commission checks.
