How much is my commission?
Qualifying sales earn a commission of the "net sale." Your net sales are calculated by subtracting shipping, promos, tax and returns or chargebacks from the total sales amount.
How soon after a visitor clicks on the link on my page must they make a purchase for me to earn a commission?
You will earn a commission for up to 30 days after a person visits your site, clicks on our link, then makes a purchase on our store. In other words, if a person clicks on our link from your site and comes to our store, but does not make a purchase at that time, you may still earn a commission if that person returns to our store within 30 days and makes a qualifying purchase. If a person makes more than one purchase from our store within those 30 days, you will earn a commission on each sale!
When will I not earn a commission?
You would not earn a commission if the person clicks on the link of another one of our affiliates between the time they clicked on our link on your site and the time they made the purchase. You also would not earn a commission if the visitor turned off or otherwise disabled the "cookie" set when they clicked on the link from your site to our site.
When are my commissions paid?
Payments are made by the 15th day of the month following the end of a calendar quarter. Payments are made only when your credit due exceeds $20. If you balance for the month is less than $20, your commissions will accumulate and be added with the next month's commissions.
When do I start earning commissions?
Immediately. You start earning commission as soon as your links are up and the first sale is made through these links.
How long does it take to hear back from you once I sign up?
We try to reply to all applications within 48 hours. However, please be patient - we take the time to visit every applicant web site to make sure that it meets our standards.
I have my own personal web site, can I apply?
Sure! We allow both companies and individuals to become golfaroundtheworld.com affiliates.
Does my web site have to be sports-related?
No. Our program is a good fit for sports-related web sites, but other sites can certainly link to golfaroundtheworld.com and make money too.
Can a web site based outside the United States become a golfaroundtheworld.com affiliate?
Yes, we gladly ship anywhere in the world.
How do I link to golfaroundtheworld.com?
Once you sign-up for the golfaroundtheworld.com program and are approved, you will be given special URLs and graphics that allow you to link to our store. There are both text links or banner links.
How does golfaroundtheworld.com know how much traffic is coming from my site?
Your links will contain a unique tag that represents your site. When a visitor uses one of your links to click through and browse golfaroundtheworld.com, the tag is stored and when that visitor makes a purchase, the tag is passed to our order database and credits the sale to your account.
Can I use my own link to make a purchase?
Yes, but you will be paying the retail price. If you are in the golf industry, you should contact us instead about setting up a wholesale account. You will not receive a commission for wholesale purchases, only for purchases made at the retail price.
How do I know when someone has bought something from my site?
You will receive an email every time someone makes a sale from your site, so you will know right away that a sale has been made.
How many links can I have to golfaroundtheworld.com ?

Should I list product prices?
No. Special prices and discounts may apply for a limited time only. Product availability can also lead to changes in prices or discounts. If you list prices, you run the risk of confusing visitors if prices change.
