Each site includes hundreds of books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, eBooks, and digital downloads available for purchase.



What are the benefits of participating?
F+W would like to offer you the chance to be rewarded for promoting our products and making an introduction to new consumers for our products.  When you make such a referral, you can earn a hefty referral bonus on any purchase that you generate for our supported eCommerce stores.

How do I sign up for the program?
All potential affiliates are asked to submit a standard application for approval, which we’ll review (in most cases within 48 hours).  You will be notified by email if/when your application is accepted.

During the application process you will be asked to agree to the terms of participation as outlined by F+W and our system administrator, Link Connector and LinkShare. There are separate applications for each of the eCommerce stores.  Please reference the sign up links at the top of the page.

How will I be compensated?
You’ll be paid on a cost-per-action (CPA) basis, as a revenue share for a bona fide sale on our supported eCommerce sites.  More specifics are available in the terms of use on the application page.

When will I be compensated?
After the transactions go through a review period of 30 days, you will receive consolidated payments.

How do I use the program on my site?
F+W have made available a host of creative elements (banners, buttons, and textual links) that are linked to our various eCommerce stores. Once you are approved as an affiliate, you can download and run these elements on your site.  From time-to-time F+W will offer updated creative elements for download with special offers to compel additional visitors.

How are these transactions tracked?
We outsource the management, tracking and reporting of our program, including links, to Link Connector and LinkShare.  Provided that you use the buttons, banners and textual links provided, our eCommerce stores will recognize the affiliate that has generated traffic and will link qualified purchases back to that affiliate, accordingly.

Is there a limit on how many sites I can employ?
No, provided that manage a site that attracts a desirable and suitable audience for our eCommerce stores, you’re welcome to apply to be an affiliate of any/all of our supported sites.
