And make money in your sleep!
When you join the Joomlashack affiliate program, you will be supplied with a range of banners and textual links that you can place within your site or send out in emails. When a user clicks on one of your links to our site, their activity will be tracked by our affiliate software, and if they purchase something you'll receive a percentage of the sale.
The more links you place, the more people will click them. It's that simple.
4 Different Product Categories to Promote
With our affiliate program, you can choose which of our products to promote: Joomla Templates, Extensions, Joomlashack University, and/or our Template and Extension Clubs. Joomlashack's varied product categories mean you can promote different products to different folks on your site or database depending on their interests.
How can you earn more?
The best performing affiliates can and have earned thousands of dollars in a single month. They do so by:

Warning Concerning Fraudulent Transactions
Some thieves use stolen credit card numbers to purchase from sites that sell digital downloadable products. These thieves are not interested in the goods they buy, but rather in the referrals they will earn as affiliates of the site. Our referral payment system is not 100% automated and this allows us to visually check each month who the new affiliates are, what kind of revenue they generated and how they did it. We will check our current affiliates regularly and we will scrutinize every transaction a new affiliate's traffic generates.
When a new affiliate arouses suspicion, we will get in touch with the Affiliate, tell him his account has been placed on hold, and ask him for more information regarding where he has placed our ads and how he has promoted our site. We will also contact each buyer that bought using his link to make sure they made the purchase. If the email address bounces or looks suspicious we will call the buyer on the phone or write them a letter. Our system will also tell us when the purchase was made from the same IP address that the Affiliate has used.
All this happens BEFORE a single referral payment has been made.
Any affiliate found to be involved in any actions not deemed appropriate by Joomlashack.com will be terminated immediately and the information will be forwarded to the credit card authorities. In these cases, any unpaid referral earnings will be forfeited.
