Q
How do I become a SnapNames affiliate?
A
Signing up is easy and free at http://www.essociate.com/snapnames. After completing the online registration form, select from a wide variety of media-rich banners. We offer text links, an RSS feed, page peels, IM sliders, search banners and more. Be sure to read our terms (pdf) before signing up.

Q
How much can I earn?
A
Every time one of your referrals purchases a SnapNames domain you earn a commission on the SnapNames profit. We pay 20% for new customer purchases and 5% for existing customer purchases.

Q
How soon will my commissions appear in my account?
A
Your commissions will show up in your account within 24 hours of collection of funds from the applicable purchase.

Q
How do I track the performance of my banners, links and RSS feed?
A
You can gauge the clicks and sales by campaign from your account. We also offer sub-campaign tracking so that you can monitor performance by website page and creative type.

Q
Do I get credit for a visitor who I referred to SnapNames via a link or banner and then later returns to SnapNames?
A
Yes, this is called persistent tracking and is done with a browser cookie. You receive credit for a full 90 days each time you refer a visitor from a SnapNames ad or link on your site.

Q
I see I've earned a commission — when will I get paid?
A
You will be paid once you reach the minimum payout of $20 (or your indicated payout threshold, if more). Your first payout will be 45 days after the first sale. Once you get going you will be paid every two weeks on a 45 day collection cycle.

Q
What is leak-free tracking?
A
We are passionate about being fair. Unlike other affiliate programs that redirect your traffic, you always get credit for referrals.
