Affiliate Program

Join the Dummies.com Affiliate Program

The Dummies.com Affiliate Program gives you a way to turn site traffic into additional revenue by enabling your visitors to purchase books and electronic products from Dummies.com and John Wiley & Sons, Inc., for a share of the sales generated.

Here are a few of the benefits you'll receive by becoming a Dummies.com Affiliate:

  • Earn Commission: Take advantage of our three commission tiers. Each month, Affiliates can earn between 7.5 percent and 10 percent on all book and electronic product sales based on their net sales for the month. Affiliates start off earning a base commission of 7.5 percent on all book and electronic product sales up to $1,600 for the month. When Affiliates earn between $1,601 and $3,300 in net sales for the month, they advance to the next commission tier and earn 9 percent on all book and electronic product sales for the month. After Affiliates exceed $3,300 in net sales for the month, they earn 10 percent on all book and electronic product sales for that month. Commissions are determined based on the net sales of orders that are fulfilled within Dummies.com's distribution area. Our distribution area includes anywhere in the United States, all United States Protectorates, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and South America.*
  • Benefit from Return Days: We understand that many purchases are not completed on a visitor's first time to an e-commerce site. We make it possible for Affiliates to receive credit for orders within a 14-day period from the initial referral.
  • Associate with a Name People Trust: Customers want to buy products from a name they trust. Affiliates can rest assured that by referring them to Dummies.com and John Wiley & Sons, Inc.'s sites, they have linked their visitors to a global brand that is highly regarded in the professional and consumer markets that we serve.
  • Monitor the Success of the Affiliate Site: We offer each Affiliate access to online reporting through our Commission Junction site. With reports available at any time, Affiliates can assess how effective their site is at marketing our products.
