Starting a New Affiliate Program

Use "Add New Program" link in My Office to start a new affiliate program. At eProfit you can run as many affiliate programs as needed. Every affiliate program is intended to promote one website/service/product and have a unique set of parameters including commission types and levels, advertising materials, terms etc.

Starting a program is free, but in order to pay commissions to the affiliates you will need to add funds to your account at eProfit before starting an affiliate program. After that you will have to maintain the minimum required balance on your account until the program expires. The more affiliate programs you have, the higher is the minimum amount. It is calculated in the following way: the minimum amount per one program is multiplied by the number of programs you are running. In case you run out of funds on your account, your programs become blocked. When this occurs your advertising materials are no longer shown on affiliates' websites until you add funds to your account at eProfit.

Note: By launching a program at eProfit your agree to the Terms of Use for Merchants.

Step 1

The first screen of the "Add New Program" process allows you to select up to 5 categories to post your program in. Select the categories your website/service/product may be referred to. Selecting the proper category will allow you to target your program more distinctly. It will also help the affiliates to find it and participate only in those programs that are related to their websites' category.

Select a category from the list or click on "Select more than one category" link if you would like your program to be listed in up to 5 categories.

Click "Next" button when finished.
