Our affiliate scheme is easy to join and requires almost no technical knowledge to use.

New customers will also receive a 10% discount on their first order if it is placed through an affiliate link. Everybody wins!
How to Register with the Jackson’s Affiliates Programme
It’s easy to join the Affiliates programme at Jackson’s. Our programme requires almost no technical knowledge and anyone can join.
The first step is to register for free on the Affiliates section of the Jackson’s website. You will only need to provide an email address which is linked to a Paypal account and a password.
Once you are registered as an affiliate, you will be taken to the affiliates homepage (illustrated below). This page has a sidebar displaying your balance, along with a series of options: Affiliate Home; Banners & Links; Social Media; Commissions; Withdrawals; Traffics; Settings; Logout.
How can I begin to Build Credit?
To get your account up and running, you should click either ‘Social Media’ or ‘Banners & Links’. The former is useful for contacting people you know to be interested in art supplies via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or email; the latter for those who have a website or blog or society page whose readership might include potential purchasers of art supplies.
Since the social media tab is pretty self-explanatory, I’m going to skip straight to Banners & Links. The first option this tab offers is to create a personalised link. Say you’ve recently bought one of our products, the Arm-adillo Wrist Pencil Case, which you absolutely love and want to share with others. Simply copy the desired URL from the address bar of your browser, paste it into the box, then press ‘Get Link’. Out will come your personalised link, which you can display to friends, relatives, pupils, or the internet at large:
New customers will receive a 10% discount on their first order if it is made through an affiliate banner or link, and you will receive a 5% commission on the value of their order. They won’t qualify for a discount on subsequent orders made through your banners or links, but your commission will remain constant.
The important thing to note is that the customers who click on your link do not have to order a specific product for you to receive commission. If they’ve already got an Arm-adillo for each wrist, they might want to buy a set of pencils to go in them; in that case, the affiliate who placed the banner will still receive commission on this purchase, as the customer was directed to the Jackson’s website by their link. The same principle goes for our banners, which are not product- or page-specific (i.e. they direct traffic to our homepage). This is what a banner looks like:
When somebody clicks on a banner, they get taken to the Jackson’s website. The affiliate who placed the banner (in this case, me) will then receive a commission of 5% on any purchases made during that session (though I’ve neutralised all of the links on this page). Given that customers frequently place orders of over £100 with us, this commission is well worth having. There are a number of banners to choose from, from the small and simple:
To the large and colourful:
They’re very easy to place: simply copy the text from the box under the banner of your choice, paste it into the text-editor of your blog, website or forum signature.
Please remember that this text is marked up in HTML, a processing language used to build web pages. You will need to paste it into the HTML text of your webpage. On WordPress sites, you will need to switch from the ‘Visual Editor’ to the ‘Text Editor’. On other interfaces, you might need to press a tab marked ‘View HTML Source’, or a button that looks like this:
How to redeem your Affiliates credit
When you wish to redeem your credit, you can choose to do so as Jackson’s online credit (at checkout on your next purchase), or via Paypal. When checking out, use the ‘Affiliate Store Credit’ option to generate a discount off your order. To withdraw your credit to Paypal, click the Balance tab on the left to request a payment.
To join the Affiliate programme, visit the Affiliates page of our website and enter your details. Please be aware that you will not earn a commission on orders you place using your own link; nor will you be awarded a discount. There are a very small number of products which we cannot offer discounts or commissions on. We do reserve the right to makes changes to our affiliates programme at any time, but we will inform you of these changes.
