Affiliate Account Types

Self-Managed Account


Our Affiliate Self-Managed account type is our basic affiliate program. There are no minimum Weekly Commission earning requirements to meet, and affiliates enjoy excellent customer service for general inquiries.

With this account type, affiliates have access to LinkConnector's proprietary Affiliate Connections™ technology, a promotions optimizer tool. Affiliates are able to communicate directly with their merchants through our interface, receive automated alerts for non-functioning code, and view available campaigns through keyword match. Affiliates can also access LinkConnector's performance reports on a 24/7 basis.


Managed Account


The Affiliate Managed account type provides affiliates with all of the same benefits of the Self-Managed Account, plus important added advantages. These include specialized LinkConnector Network training, an enhanced Affiliate Rank of 4-5 stars, and greater access to private merchant campaigns and performance tiers.

Additionally, affiliates gain an assigned Account Representative. This person will provide expedited support and assistance with many tasks: generation and implementation of LinkConnector code, setup of Affiliate Connections, setup of Affiliate Tracking IDs (ATIDs), the negotiation for increased commission payout from merchants, and implementation of product feeds.

The Managed Account requires that a minimum of $2,500 in Weekly Commissions is earned for four consecutive weeks.


Premier Account


Premier Affiliate account types offer all of the benefits of the Self-Managed and Managed account types, but also include premier support from a dedicated Account Representative. In addition to the tasks carried out for the Managed Account, this Account Representative also conducts periodic merchant campaign audits. Premier Accounts can request ad-hoc reports and a real-time stats and reports console. These accounts also enjoy weekly payments of commission partials. Additionally, LinkConnector works for this level of affiliate to pursue offers outside of the LC Network, and offers a Bonus Plan, Fee Sharing and/or Affiliate Incentives on a case-by-case basis.

The Premier Account requires that a minimum of $10,000 in Weekly Commissions is earned for four consecutive weeks. This must happen first, before an invitation to this account type level is offered.
