Q. How do I earn commission?

A. You earn commission whenever someone clicks on your special affiliate link and then makes a purchase on our website. For example, if you posted this link: https://www.bluebanana.com/en/product/1008966/1471/manic-panic-high-voltage-classic-cream-formula-rockabilly-blue-colour-hair-dye?a=sampleaffiliate and someone then clicked on it and made a purchase of £9.99 before leaving the website, you’d earn £0.99. The commission rate stands at 10% of the total basket price at present, so the bigger the purchases, the more you earn! You can use the same link across all of your promotional posts, or you can change them to direct your followers/subscribers to specific products.

Q. How do I claim my earnings?

A. Firstly, in order to claim your earnings, you must have earned a minimum amount of £10.00. Once you’ve reached this milestone, all you have to do is hit the ‘Claim Your Earnings’ button when you’re logged into your affiliates account and we’ll process your request and issue your online gift certificate. Once you’ve received this, you can start spending! (Please note, online gift certificates must be redeemed in full within 12 months of their issue date.)

Q. How can I keep track of the number of visitors and sales I’ve generated?

A. The majority of our affiliates are YouTubers or bloggers and they tend to include the links either in the video description or embedded into the text of their blogs. Other affiliates post their links in their Instagram bios, attached to posts on Facebook or in the form of a tweet. However, there’s no hard and fast rule regarding where you should put the links, simply incorporate it into your post in a way that feels natural to you.

Q. Am I under contract to post links to your site?

A. Absolutely not! You’re under no obligation to us, so you can simply start and stop posting links at your discretion. Remember, there’s no scary contract or pressure, this is something you can engage with at your choosing.
