1. What is an Affiliate Program?

Affiliate programs offer web site owners and bloggers a way to sell another company’s products or services and receive a commission when a sale occurs. Affiliate programs use cookies (website cookies, not edible cookies) to track where a link comes from. If someone makes a purchase and the link is traced to your blog or website then you get a share of the sale price.

2. What is ShareASale?

ShareASale is an affiliate marketing network that manages the Pinch of Yum affiliate program. Click here to find out more.

3. What if someone clicks on my affiliate link but doesn’t buy your eBook right away?

The cookie in your affiliate link lasts for six months. That means someone can click on the link, leave the page, and then come back in five months and make a purchase, and you’ll still get credit for the sale!

4. Do I have to use the text in the original affiliate link that is generated?

No. You can replace the text in the link after you paste it into your blog or website. You can even use an image if you’d like.

5. how do I get paid?

You can get paid via direct deposit or check. Find out more here.

6. When do I get paid?

Payments are sent out on the 20th of every month, for the previous month’s commissions
