What is the AsiaforKids.com Affiliate Program?
The AsiaforKids.com Affiliate Program offers Affiliates a chance to sell books, music, videos, software, dolls, T-shirts and more to their visitors, earn money and increase traffic on their web site. As an Affiliate, you can earn referral fees by linking to our site. AsiaforKids.com handles all the Order Processing, Customer Service, Product Fulfillment and recording while you sit back and earn referral fees.

Can I participate if I live outside the United States?
Yes, you may participate in the Affiliates Program if you live outside the United States. We have customers all over the world. All you need to join is a Web site (or an idea for a web site) that meets our qualifications.

How much will I earn?
Affiliates earn commissions based on Qualifying Revenues. "Qualifying Revenues" are revenues derived by us from our sales of Qualifying Products, excluding costs for shipping and handling, sales tax charges. The current commission schedule is:

  • 5% commission on quarterly sales under $1,000
  • 7% commission on quarterly sales of $1,000 to $9,999.99
  • 10% commission on quarterly sales of $10,000 or more

    You earn commissions on all qualifying sales except for products returned to us by customers for refund in accordance with the Asia for Kids refund policy. "Qualifying Revenues" is defined as money collected from sales of regularly stocked and regularly priced product minus returns. Commissions will not be paid on shipping & handling, gift wrapping or sales tax charges, credit card processing fees and bad debt. See Operating Agreement for details.

    Are there sales quotas?
    We pay commissions for all products that you sell to customers you refer. Using your unique Affiliate Code we track your sales. At the end of each calendar quarter, all accounts are reviewed and we issue checks for Affiliate members who have earned more than $50.00 in referral fees. If your account has earned less than $50.00, we will carry your credit forward and issue you a check when you have earned $50.00 or more.

    How much does it cost to become an AsiaforKids.com Affiliate?
    It is free!

    How are orders tracked and credited to my site?
    All links from your site to AsiaforKids.com contain your site's unique source ID and the customer's cart number. Every time a user comes to us via your links, we know to credit you when a purchase is made. Even if the user browses for a while onour site, the sale will still be tracked to you source code. Whether you link to our Home Page, a Catalog Category or a specific product we can suggest which areas would be of the most interest to your visitors. While at AsiaforKids.com, customers can add any title to their shopping cart, return to the store to shop for more titles or browse through the AsiaforKids.com online catalog. When ready to purchase, customers simply press the "buy" button to order product online. AsiaforKids.com will send customers an email confirming their order, as well as handle the order fulfillment and any other Customer Service needs.

    How will I receive sales information?
    As a member of the Affiliate Program, you will receive a quarterly check and sales report.

    Does my Web site qualify for the Affiliates Program?
    Most Web sites will qualify to participate in the program; however, we may reject Web sites that we determine are unsuitable. All you need to join is a Web site (or an idea for a web site) that does not:

  • Promote violence
  • Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age
  • Promote unlawful activities
  • Promote the use of bulk e-mail or spam
  • Promote the use of pyramid schemes
  • Contain content that is threatening, defamatory, fraudulent, obscene or harassing
  • Violate intellectual property rights
  • Contain nudity or pornographic material

    If you are unsure whether your site meets these criteria, please email us your URL at info@afk.com, and we will be happy to review your site.

    What are my responsibilities as an Affiliate member?

    You are responsible for:

    • Creating accurate links to our site so that we may track your sales.
    • Displaying the AsiaforKids.com Affiliate Program logo on your Home Page and other prominent areas on your site.
    • Ensuring that your web site does not violate copyright, trademark and other laws.
    • Ensuring that your web site contains material that is appropriate for affiliation with AsiaforKids.com, as stated in the AsiaforKids.com Affiliate Program Operating Agreement.

    We are responsible for:

    • Order Processing
    • Delivering products
    • Providing great Customer Service and everything else!

    May I purchase products through my links for my own personal use?
    According to our Operating Agreement, we do not pay referral fees for personal orders. The AsiaforKids.com Affiliate Program is designed to help you earn money and add value to your web site by selling AsiaforKids.com products to your site visitors. The program is not designed to discount products for personal use.

    Do I need to provide customer service?
    No, AsiaforKids.com will provide all Order Processing and Customer Service for your visitors.

    May I join other Affiliate programs?
    Yes, although we recommend that you participate only in the Affiliate program that works best for you. This will reduce confusion with your site visitors. You should choose the program that pays you the highest commissions, and provides your visitors with the best customer experience and service to help you generate the most referral fees.

    Do I control the design of my store?
    Yes, you control the design, navigation and editorial content for your software store. You should try to make your recommendations or links to AsiaforKids.com look and feel like the rest of your site.

    I don't know how to write HTML - will AsiaforKids.com help me?
    We cannot help each Affiliate learn about HTML or web site development tools but there are readily available resources through books on basic HTML skills, required to add the AsiaforKids.com Affiliate link. Every Affiliate site is unique, and we don't provide any kind of standard template for you to start with. However, we do provide the required HTML code with your unique source ID required for you to link to our site.

    What are my linking options?
    You have a number of linking options. See our steps on how to link to AsiaforKids.com for more detailed instructions.

    Will AsiaforKids.com supply me with logos, cover art or reviews?
    Yes. Use the AsiaforKids.com logos and banners on your web site to show your visitors that you're an AsiaforKids.com Affiliate member. You can use product cover art if and only if you are using them for the purpose of promoting them for sale by linking directly to AsiaforkIds.com web site. We encourage you to write your own description of the recommended title. You are fully responsible for ensuring that your web site does not violate copyright, trademark and other laws.

    May I list prices?
    We strongly recommend that you do not list prices on your site. We often change our prices to continue to provide customers with the best value that may cause the prices you list to be outdated. Displaying incorrect prices could result in confused and unsatisfied customers.

    Can I take the order directly on my Web site and just send the customer and order information to AsiaforKids.com?
    No. To ensure that your visitors receive the most accurate and up-to-date information, we require Affiliates to use the AsiaforKids.com order system. Specifically, we update our prices and change the availability of product everyday. By using our system, you ensure that your visitors will have the most customer satisfaction, as they will get the most up-to-date information and ordering options available from AsiaforKids.com. In addition, a customer's contact and billing information is a must for us to offer the best customer service on the Web. I have more than one web site.

    If I have more than one web site, how do I register them?
    You have two options: You can have one account listing all of your URLs. If you choose this option, you will receive one combined sales report and one combined referral check. Assigning the same affiliate code for both sites does this. You can open a separate account for each URL. This option will provide you with a separate sales report for each site you maintain. Most Affiliates prefer this option so that they can see the breakdown of traffic for each site. You will also receive a separate check for each account. For accounting purposes, we will not combine checks from multiple accounts.
