Joining a gift card affiliate program allows you to earn money every time someone you refer purchases a gift card. Since the Internet gives you access to a vast audience, people typically market affiliate programs online and retailers create a unique customer referral link for each affiliate. Becoming a gift card affiliate is a simple process and doesn't cost you a dime.
Go to your favorite search engine website and type in “gift card affiliate programs.” This search brings up numerous companies that specialize in selling gift cards.
One by one, click on the different websites and review each program’s terms and conditions. The percentage you’re paid, how you advertise to sell the gift cards and how often you’re paid depend on the gift card affiliate program you choose, so it’s important to choose the program that suits you the best.
Fill out the online application. All gift card affiliate programs allow you to fill out the application online, but the questions you’re required to answer vary. Personal information such as your name and address is standard. However, some applications ask you how you plan to advertise the gift cards or want a link to the website on which you intend to advertise. This ensures that you aren’t going to send unwanted emails to people with offers.
Wait for approval. Once your application is approved, you’re officially a gift card affiliate and can begin advertising your gift cards online.
