Affiliate Program Q&A
How and where can I promote?
When you sign up for the program, you will be given an affiliate code and your own user dashboard where you can track all of your referral stats and purchases. Your affiliate link will look something like this yourname.com/?aff=1. The number after the "=" is your unique affiliate ID number.
To link to an item URL with your code, simply place your affiliate code "/?aff=#" at the end of any of our product links or homepage.
For example: If you are promoting our Ballet Slipper Knit Sweater the URL would be:
and you would add your affiliate code at the end:
You will be given a unique affiliate code and link once you sign up.
One of the most popular ways to promote our store or products is by placing a link to our store with your affiliate code in your Instagram bio. If the code is too long you can shorten it using the shortening tool in your admin panel.
Note* once you shorten your code, It will look something like this http://bit.ly/2nmks0P. your affiliate code will not be visible but trust us it’s there, it’s simply hidden.
- Place the code on your Instagram bio
- Post an image from our banner catalog found on your dashboard or post any product image
- Tell followers that the link to the item is in you bio
- Remember to throw in your affiliate discount code to sweeten the deal!
And that's basically it. You can, of course, do this any way you think is best for your audience.
When someone makes a purchase for one or multiple products you will automatically receive an email notifying you of the purchase, how much it was for and how much you earned.
Note* You don’t have to keep our images or our website link on your Instagram forever. If you want to have our products on your page with our link on your bio for 1 day that's great, 30 days, That's even better. You can do it however you like. We just pay you based on how many purchases you can generate from your promotions. :)
If you would like to promote on your blog you can follow many of the steps found in the Instagram section above. Use a good image with text and link it back to the corresponding product or page with your affiliate code in the link. It's that simple.
How and when will I get paid?
Cookies (how long your code stays on the customer's browser) are good for a whole 10 days! so if they make a purchase within 10 days, you will be credited.
We do not require a minimum to cash out. If you sell one product and make $5 you can still cash out. Just shoot us an email and we will pay you within 48 hours. In the admin panel of your affiliate page, you will be able to set up your PayPal.
If you choose to be paid through PayPal then you will receive the full commission amount. If you choose to be paid through a Grace and James Kids gift card, we will throw in an extra 25% commission. That means that if your pay out is $100 then we will deposit that amount into your PayPal OR issue you a Grace and James Kids Gift Card for $125.That's pretty much it. It's all automated. There is no contract and you are not obligated to do anything. You are also not liable for anything. We handle all the customer service and support. All you have to do is promote ;)
Any restrictions or stipulations?
As you have probably assumed, we do not allow our affiliates to gain commissions from their own orders they purchase themselves, sorry, no double dipping. That's all! Promote away!
