As you read this page, the most important steps you MUST follow, are highlighted like this in yellow.
Step 1: Join Shareasale ….
The Chinavasion Affiliates Program is run through the Shareasale system. This means that you have to become a member of Shareasale before you can join the Chinavasion Program.
Shareasale is a separate website/company from Chinavasion and we will now teach you how to sign up in their system.
To begin the signup process, visit Shareasale.com and click on the affiliate sign up button.
You’ll then be prompted to enter personal details like your name, address, website URL, and your overall marketing plan. You absolutely must submit accurate information here, as merchants will use your URL to determine your eligibility for their programs, and your personal information is vital for getting paid from the network itself.
If you are not sure how to fill out the details of the form we have some specific guidance here.
After you submit your application you may have to wait for one working day while your application is reviewed. Shareasale will check your application, and when you are successful, you will receive an email confirmation.
Make Sure You Get Accepted
Nearly anyone can get approved to work with Shareasale, but there are a few things you can do to improve your chances of getting accepted. Remember, Shareasale wants to present a good image to its advertisers, so they can't allow people to join if they can't present themselves in a semi-professional light. The basic steps you should take are below.
- Own your own domain.
You can get a domain for around $10 through most domain registrars, and many will even give you free hosting for a limited time. If you do have to pay for hosting, you should have no trouble finding a plan for around $5/month.
- Use an email address from your own domain.
Instead of something like email@example.com, set up something like firstname.lastname@example.org. It looks more professional and proves you own your own website.
- Give at least one full sentence describing your promotional methods.
Give some thought to your marketing methods when they ask how you intend to promote their merchants. Saying you'll use a particular method doesn't necessarily limit you from using others, but voicing uncertainty will have the effect of making you look like an amateur.
