Etsy Affiliate Program: How To Sign Up
I’ve joined the Etsy US affiliate program, but you should signup for the Etsy affiliate program specific to your country:
- Scandinavian (Sweden)
- If you fall into none of the above, chose either EU or ‘Rest of World’
** INSIDER TIP ** Affiliate Window requires a $5 deposit that is immediately credited back to you when you sign up. When you receive your first payment, you will also be paid your $5 deposit back. I’ve asked & this can only be waived if Etsy directly invites you to become an affiliate. But not to worry, it is a legitimate program & they do repay the $5 to you.
Etsy is wonderful because they pay commissions no matter what country the sale was made in!
No matter what country you live in or what country your audience lives in, you will be paid as an Etsy affiliate.
They accept 99% of applicants and should quickly approve your request.
Depending on your country, Etsy pays 4%-8% commission on the total sales and offers a 30 day cookie.
You will get paid through Affiliate Window, since they run the program, and you can opt to be paid once a month by check or up to twice a month by direct deposit into your bank account.
Your Affiliate Link
You will want to send business to a specific product or seller within the website & not just to the main homepage.
Once you become an Etsy Affiliate, it’s easy to create affiliate links to specific products or sellers that you love.
To link create your affiliate link, copy the URL of the exact page & then paste it into Link Builder.
Use that affiliate link when you share the products you love.
** INSIDER TIP ** Share images of the products & make sure those images are clickable using your affiliate link.
