How Do You Apply for the Etsy Affiliate Program?

The Etsy affiliate program is managed through an affiliate network called AWIN. On AWIN’s site, you will need to apply as a publisher and wait to be approved. Prior to applying, you should have an established blog with high quality content. Etsy offers such a wide range of products that you can be a great fit for their program even if you do not have a craft or art blog.

After you are accepted, you can apply to become an Etsy affiliate from your AWIN dashboard. In addition to Etsy, you will be connected to a pool of thousands of affiliate programs in various niches. Each program has its own application approval process.

Step 4: Account Verification

The final step is submitting your contact information. Make sure you also review the privacy policy, user agreement, and terms of service for AWIN. When you join Awin, you will need to pay a $5.00 fee. After you are accepted to the program, the $5.00 will be credited to your account and paid with your first commission payment. The fee is how they verify that you are a real person and not trying to apply with fake information.

Step 5: Apply for the Etsy Affiliate Program

From the AWIN dashboard, go to the Advertisers menu tab. Select Join Programs. I am in the US so I searched for the Etsy US affiliate program.

As part of the Etsy affiliate application process, you will be required to provide a list of all of the Etsy shops that you are affiliated with or operate. More information is provided on the program overview page. When I applied, I was accepted to the US program within 2 business days. As a seller on Etsy, I communicated with them by email about shops that I operate and how I planned to promote Etsy as an affiliate.

 

Want to Promote Albemarle PR?

After you join the Etsy affiliate program, you will have access to banners and Awin’s Google Chrome Extension for Etsy. Using the extension, you can generate a unique Etsy affiliate link for products and shops that you’d like to share. In addition to promoting anything on Etsy, you can earn commissions using affiliate links for products in the Albemarle PR Etsy Shop. At this time, we do not offer an affiliate program for templates sold on albemarlepr.org.
