Affiliate Program Frequently Asked Questions

Who pays me?

We use a third-party affiliate tracking system powered by ClickBank (the world’s largest provider of digital products). They handle all affiliate payments with a streamlined system to ensure you will get paid on time, every time. You can also promote other ebooks in the ClickBank program and receive a single payment for all programs – it makes it easy to promote a selection of ebooks, customized to the audience of your website.

When do I get paid?

ClickBank makes payments weekly or fortnightly to all webmasters who have reached the $10 minimum (or your selected minimum above $10) with payments by either paper check for all affiliates or direct bank transfer for high earning affiliates.

Payments are sent every 2nd Wednesday for the pay period ending 2 weeks prior to allow for security checking and fraud prevention. If you are a high earning affiliate you are eligible for weekly payments.

How much do I get paid?

The Handcrafter’s Companion pays one of the highest percentage payout allowed by ClickBank (66%), which means that you get paid $17.83 for most sales (We also sometimes promote related products at slightly higher or lower price points. Whatever happens, you always get 66%).

How do I promote you?

Our advice is to keep it simple.

  • If you have a blog, make a post about your experience with our ebook. Examples are available in the affiliate resources area.
