Become an ElectricStory Affiliate!

How Does It Work?

Earn 10% on every purchase you refer to ElectricStory.com. When you register to become an affiliate, we send you an id to put in a URL you link to ElectricStory. When a customer uses that link to get to our site, the id is picked up by our system and associated with their current session. If they make a purchase, your id is logged with the purchase, so we know to pay you 10%. What's more, if the person doesn't have an affiliate id, your id is associated with their account, and you get 10% of their purchases from then on out! Well, with one exception. If they visit the site using someone else's affiliate id and make a purchase, that affiliate id overrides the one currently associated with the account, but for that session only; you still "own" that customer.

How Do I Know It's Working?

When you get your affiliate id, we'll give you access to a page where you can track your affiliate sales as soon as they occur.

How Do I Apply?

1. If you don't have an account, register now.

2. Contact us with your ElectricStory login name (that is, the login name you chose), the name of your website, an explanation of what the site does or is for, and your website URL. Be sure to include your e-mail address! If someone else maintains the website for you, send us their e-mail address as well. By applying for an affiliate id, you agree to abide by our terms of use.

3. Wait for us to get back to you. It should be within a business day or two.

Who Qualifies?

If you have an e-commerce site, are an author, publisher, or other professional in publishing, or have a website you've actively maintained for at least a year, we'll consider you for an id. It's not hard to qualify, but we aren't interested in having certain sites as affiliates, like those that serve up spam, for instance.

How Do I Use My ID?

We'll soon have a utility to build you links and link graphics, but basically the following is all you do.

Say your id was "123" and you wanted to link to our home page. The link with your affiliate id would look like this:

http://www.electricstory.com/index.aspx?afid=123

Say you wanted to link to Terry Bisson's page—not a bad idea. You'd navigate to Terry Bisson in authors and find that his authorid is 5, so the link with your affiliate id would look like this:

http://www.electricstory.com/authors/author.aspx?authorid=5&afid=123

Note that if the affiliate id is the only key in the querystring, you tack "?afid=123" onto your URL; otherwise, you use an ampersand and not a question mark: "&afid=123."
