What is an affiliate program? How does it work?An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (that's you!) drives traffic to a merchant's web site (that's us!) in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor to your site clicks on the affiliate link to our site and completes a purchase, you get a commission on every non-subscription based product they buy!
Once you sign up for and are accepted to our program, you can log in at any time to get our banners and links, find out about commissions earned and even learn about how many impressions each of your links has received.
How do I get started?It's simple! Complete your online enrollment application and submit it for approval. Approvals are typically granted with 3 business days, often sooner! Once you're approved, you'll be notified via email, at which time you may login to your Affiliate Control Panel and grab banners and other promotional material for use on your website, in your newsletters, emails and other approved promotional methods.
Who can participate?Just about anybody! Whether you run a large commercial web site, a small personal blog, a non-profit site, or anything in between you're welcome to apply to join the program. We also welcome owners of opt-in e-mail newsletters. All applications are manually reviewed, and we reserve the right to refuse any application, especially if the site or e-mail list contains objectionable material, participates in unsolicited e-mailing, is a "parasite" [more about parasites below], or if it violates our Terms of Service Agreement.
Does it cost anything to participate?No! As long as you are an active affiliate, all you need to do is keep linking and collect your commissions.
How are sales tracked from my site?Once your application is accepted, you will be given a unique affiliate ID as well as custom-formatted links that will ensure that traffic coming from your site is properly tracked. We maintain a 60-day cookie, meaning that if a visitor clicks on a link from your site, you are credited with the sale as long as the visitor purchases within 60 days.
Karaokeware Inc. records all transactions from your site in real time, meaning that all impressions, links, and sales are tracked instantly. The Karaoke Affiliates Control Panel has all of the reports and tracking resources you'll need to see how you're doing. You can use these reports to find out which of your links are performing the best and to optimize your site for maximum sales.
How much will I earn? How and when do I get paid?All new affiliates can earn commissions of up to 15% based on approved sales generated by linked referrals, with a cookie life duration of 60 days.
Karaokeware Inc. pays affiliates monthly and when the commission balance reaches $50 or more. Please refer to our Terms of Service Agreement for more information.

What is a parasite? What is your policy regarding parasites?The term "parasite" refers to technology (including browser plug ins, helpers, popups, etc.) that intercepts and changes an affiliate's link. This technology is also known as "unsolicited commercial software" and is often found in Adware and Spyware software. Parasite activity essentially "hijacks" the affiliates link and the affiliate commission gets redirected to the parasite, instead of the affiliate who rightfully earned it. This type of software is normally installed unknowingly, often without the end user's consent.
We are committed to preventing any parasites from becoming part of our program. If we determine that any of our affiliates are parasites, they will immediately be inactivated and banned from the program. Please e-mail us if you suspect that one of our affiliates may be a parasite.
I'm signed up, now what?Once your application is approved, you will receive an e-mail welcoming you into our affiliate program. It will include all the instructions you need to get started.
