The home-grown Chinavasion Affiliates Program is being closed at the end of November 2009 in favor of exclusively using the Chinavasion merchant channel in Shareasale.
If you are an existing affiliate of Chinavasion inside the “old” system you need to change your links and get inside Shareasale as soon as possible, before the deadline. When you continue your great promotional work through the Shareasale system you’ll find it’s easier to use and gives you more real-time data to help optimize your campaigns.
The Chinavasion merchant channel in Shareasale is already there, so please sign up and learn the ropes now!
Key Points To Note
- The link building and tracking system at Affiliates.chinavasion.com will no longer give you commission after 30th November 2009

Existing Affiliates – What You Should Do Now
Existing affiliates will not be automatically transferred into the new system. You need to sign up at Shareasale if you are not already a member there.
After the switch at the end of November 2009, your old links will not work any more, you need to build new ones.
- Sign up to Shareasale
- Join our channel there.
- You will get email notifications from Shareasale that your registration was successful and that your application to join the Chinavasion channel was approved.
- Any Chinavasion Affiliates widgets you have built will run for a while but quite soon after will stop displaying properly. Please replace them with banners, text links (including categories), or product links.
Everything else is exactly the same as before, the same terms and conditions and the same great 6% commission…. Just a lot easier to use!
