The Apple Affiliate Program simply allows site and app owners to earn commission on sales of music, apps, books and more. So, if you own a site or app, the program will provide a unique way for your website or app to link to millions of songs and thousands of apps — as well as books, movies, TV shows and more — while earning commissions on qualifying sales.
The program offers a number of powerful tools to fully integrate store links and content into your web site or App. They include: Link Maker, auto Link Maker, Widget builder and Banner builder.
With one snippet of code added to your website, all iTunes, App Store, iBooks and Mac App Store links can also be converted to affiliate links. As an affiliate, you can earn a commission on revenue generated by encoded links. Commissions are eligible on sales for up to 24 hours after a user clicks on your link.
Signing up to be an Apple affiliate is quick, easy and free and it is available in many countries including Nigeria. Approval is not automatic as applicants have to go through approval process which might take up to five business days or more. Currently, applicants are required to have a website or blog URL. Or, as a developer you can provide a link to your app on the App Store.
Once your application is accepted, you can go to the Apple affiliate program login page, sign in with your credentials, to start creating links, generate affiliate badges and update payment information through your affiliate account dashboard.
In order to receive a payment, you must provide your bank information. You are eligible to receive Apple Affiliate program commissions through direct deposit after you have reached the program minimum payment threshold. Payment thresholds vary by country or currency and can be seen in your account settings. Affiliate payments are available 90 days after the date of sale, assuming your payment threshold has been met.
I’ve already been accepted into the program today and I hope to share more info about it in the long run. So, make sure you subscribe to this blog if you don’t want to miss the updates.
