Q. What is the CDJapan Affiliate Program?
The CDJapan affiliate program allows you to receive commission for purchases made by customers referred to CDJapan from your blog or website. Even if the customers you have referred do not make a purchase immediately, you will still receive credit as long as they purchase within thirty days of last following the link on your site.
Q. How much can I earn?
You will earn 5-7% of sales coming from your site. Your rate for each month will be determined by the amount of confirmed sales you received in the previous month. *Please note that tax and shipping charges are excluded from your sale totals.
Q. Will I receive commission for purchases I make myself?
Of course you'll receive commission for your own purchases! Just make sure to click on your own affiliate link before shopping to ensure your CDJapan affiliate cookie is loaded in your browser so that we can calculate your commission. Please note that if you follow a CDJapan affiliate link from someone else's site before placing your order, the commission will go to them and not you.
Q. Are there any items that don't qualify for the affiliate program?
Currently, purchases of CDJapan gift certificates and magazine subscriptions do not qualify for the affiliate program.
Q. Can I participate in the affiliate program from any country?
We generally allow people from any country to participate. However, please be aware that all notifications and customer support will be handled in English.
Q What countries can people order from?
CDJapan's international shopping experience extends to customers in over 200 countries worldwide. As long as the country receives EMS, Airmail, or SAL shipping, we allow you to ship your order pretty much anywhere. Our support is conducted in English, so please feel free to introduce CDJapan anywhere across the globe.
