Affiliate programme

Frequently asked questions

How does it work?

Our affiliate programme allows you to earn a sales commission for online purchases made by customers that come from a link on your website to MCanvasPrints. We will administer the links, track the sales resulting from those links, and provide you with a simple web-based interface for you to track the success of your programme.

Does it cost anything to become an affiliate?

No, it's totally free.

How long is my commitment to this programme?

You may end your participation in our affiliate programme at any time.

Who can participate in the affiliate programme?

Anyone who has a website that is deemed to be 'clean' by our web team. Most sites will qualify to participate in the programme. Anyone may submit an application, but we do reserve the right to refuse membership to a website or revoke a site's membership at any time if we deem it to contain objectionable material or not fit our affiliate strategy. We do review all applications, and acceptance to the programme is at our discretion.

Does it matter what country I live in?

It makes no difference where in the world you and your website are based. However, please note that MCanvasPrints only deliver canvas prints to the UK.

I already am an affiliate with another affiliate programme. Can I still participate?

We don't have a problem with you being a member of more than one affiliate programme.

I run more than one website. Should I sign up for multiple affiliate accounts?

You are allowed to use your affiliate links across as many sites as you want to. There isn't any need to open multiple affiliate accounts. However, you must declare any websites that you intend to use for our affiliate programme.

How much commission do I earn?

We provide a whopping 15% commission on the sale of all products. Commission is paid on the total value of an order excluding refunds and discounts.

How will I be paid?

Payment are made via PayPal. Setting up a Paypal account is quick, easy and totally free. From your Paypal account you can transfer the money directly into your bank account. If you don't have an account with PayPal already, then get one now, so we can pay you!

When will I get paid?

The affiliate commission payments for any month are made by the end of the following month. You will only receive payment once your commission exceeds £10.00. If your commission doesn't exceed £10 in any month the total owed will be carried over to the following month.

Do I get commission from all sales?

Yes. The unique links we provide you will track your visitors wherever they go on our site. You will get commission on everything they buy. In addition, if someone visits our site through your link, and then returns up to 1 year later to make a purchase, you will still get credit for that sale.

Do I earn commission on repeat purchases my visitors make?

We'll reward you every time your customers return to us for a whole year after they followed your link to MCanvasPrints.

Am I allowed to make purchases through my own links?

Certainly, and we will also pay you commission on your own purchase!

How are my commissions tracked?

All affiliates have a referral code built into all their links. A cookie containing the information about the referring affiliate is set as soon as someone reaches our website. You can verify this for yourself by following an affiliate link and then

For Firefox:
Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Show Cookies
Scroll down to the cookies set by MCanvasPrints. There is a cookie named "ref" - select that cookie, and you will see that your affiliate username is listed under "Content".

For Internet Explorer:
Tools -> Internet Options -> General -> Settings -> View Files
There is a file containing all the cookies from MCanvasPrints. Open the file by double-clicking it, and you will see that your affiliate username is in there, just under "ref".

So when a visitor enters MCanvasPrints through these links and makes a purchase, you will automatically be credited.

How can I track my commissions?

You can track your commissions through your affiliate account that is assigned to you by MCanvasPrints. Through this interface, you will be able to track visits, sales and commissions.

How do I build links to MCanvasPrints?

You build links to our site by using the code available to you in the affiliate area once you have logged on. Simply copy the HTML code corresponding to the links you would like to use, and paste it directly into the source code for your site. MCanvasPrints will then track all activity resulting from your links.
