How to Get Started after Approval

Create your unique affiliate link

You have the option to get creative with your affiliate link. Affiliate links look like this:

You could do things like this:


Your affiliate link is VERY important. It’s the link people will HAVE to use so that ARTK12 can track whether or not they buy something based on your referral. You MUST use your link when you refer people to ARTK12 and once you create it is a good idea NEVER to change it.

You can promote the entire site or focus on individual products if you want. Each product, if you are logged in to your account, has a red button that says:


Once you click that button, you have a referral link on your clipboard that you can post on social media, a website or just email to a friend.

You can also select pages you want to refer people to and create your own link to that page. For example, let’s say you want to send people directly to our geography books page where no automatic link is generated. That page link is:

You would change it to this:

Add Your Mailing Address

For the time being we’ll be mailing checks once a month for accounts we owe $100.00 or more. At the end of each year we will pay the balance of what you are owed even if it is under $100.00. We may do electronic payments in the future. We’ll keep you posted.

Make sure to add your mailing address as soon as possible. See the screenshots below.

Get Familiar with Your Dashboard

The “Reports” tab and the “Profile” tab are self-explanatory. The “Campaigns” tab is where you can get ARTK12 assets if you need them: logos, banners, etc. We may suggest campaigns based on sales we’re seeing or on new books we’re promoting, etc. Of course you can create your own campaigns with your own artwork or a combination of ours with yours.



We pay 5% on the entire orderĀ  before taxes and shipping (gift cards and ARTK12 t-shirts, mugs, etc., are excluded). So if the order is for $100.00 before taxes and shipping you will make $5.00. Our best-selling product is our geography book bundle for $149.95 for all nine books so you would make $7.50.

Commission Levels

We will have four levels of commissions. This may change* and the amounts may also change (we’re new at this).

  • Standard (5% – under $500 in ARTK12 Sales)
  • Bronze (6% – $500+ in ARTK12 Sales)
  • Silver (7% – $2,500+ in ARTK12 Sales)
  • Gold (8% – $5,000+ in ARTK12 Sales)

* If we raise the sales amount you will remain in whatever level you are currently in…i.e. you won’t go down to a lower level, but you would have to achieve the new goal to move up to a new level.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it cost money to sign up?

No. Signing up is completely free.

What products can I earn commissions on?

Currently, you can earn commissions on all our books. We exclude gift cards and ARTK12 Gear: t-shirts, mugs, etc., for commissions.

What products should I promote?

That’s really up to you. Promote the books you love, promote all of them, or just promote one book if you like.

Can I buy books through my own affiliate program?

Sorry, you can’t do that. We want to make sure those signing up are interested in the affiliate program and not simply to secure a discount for their own purchases. Your account will be terminated if you try to do this (Wow, that sounds mean, doesn’t it?).
