Jackson’s Affiliate Program is designed to provide a platform for artists to partner with us, recommend our products and our service, and be rewarded with a commission for doing so. We’ve improved the functionality and experience of our Affiliate Program in Australia, Canada, and the USA, with other countries following soon. Find out how to sign up and how to get the most out of being a Jackson’s Affiliate using the new Affiliate Program below.
Please note that for affiliates in the UK and Europe, our updated Affiliate Program will be available in 2024.
How Do I Join Jackson’s Affiliate Program?
To apply, firstly you need to sign in or register for a Jackson’s Account.
Secondly, sign up to the Affiliate Program at the appropriate link below, with reference to your website, by clicking on the APPLY NOW button at the bottom of the below page.
Once you are logged into your Jackson’s Account, navigate to the menu on the left side where you’ll see ‘Affiliates’ listed at the bottom. Click there and if you aren’t signed up to the program it will ask you for your referring website and PayPal email address.
Make sure you have read the Terms and Conditions which cover aspects such as Payments, Commission and Responsibilities as an Affiliate.
Once you’ve pressed ‘Create an Account’ you’ll see the following message:
How Can I Begin to Earn Commission?
Once your Affiliate Account has been approved and you’re logged in, you’re ready to start earning commission. Click where it says ‘Promo Data’ – this is where you can create a personalised link that will have your affiliate account attached to it.
If for instance, you use Jackson’s Professional Oil Colours, and you want to share them with fellow artists, simply copy the URL from the address bar of your browser, paste it into the box, and the URL will automatically generate. You can then copy this link and share it with friends, pupils, followers and blog readers. The link will look similar to this (please note that this link is on our Australian website and the affiliate code will be unique to you):
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. Subsequent orders made by the same customer via the banners or links won’t qualify for a discount, but your commission will remain constant.
Another way to earn commission and something which has been introduced for the updated Jackson’s Affiliate Program is a unique affiliate coupon code. Sharing your unique coupon code will enable you to receive a commission from purchases and new customers will get a 10% discount on their first order the same way as if you were to share a link. To receive the discount, customers are required to enter the code when placing an order in the Basket where it says ‘PROMO CODE’. You can find your unique code underneath the URL code generator, it will look similar to this (the code will be unique to you)
Below is a screenshot of where the code is entered in a new customer’s Basket when checking out:
Promoting your Affiliate Coupon Code
In terms of promoting your unique Affiliate Coupon Code, we would recommend using the code to try and attract new customers to purchase as they will receive the 10% discount off their first order. However, for existing Jackson’s customers it’s more logical to share links via the URL generator as they won’t receive the discount in their Basket (as they aren’t new customers). There’s no real benefit to existing Jackson’s customers inputting the coupon code when placing their order, therefore in terms of you receiving commission, sharing a link is much easier.
Using the Affiliate Banners
Below the Affiliate Coupon Code there are a selection of banners and images which can be embedded into your website in a range of sizes.
Please note that in order to see a preview of the image and the ‘COPY’ button, you may need to reduce the zoom on your web browser (you should be able to see it at 80%).
Press the ‘COPY’ button on the banner that you would like on your website and this will copy the source code which includes your Affiliate Code within it. The code will look similar to this:
<a rel=”‘nofollow'” href=”https://www.jacksonsart.com/?utm_campaign=affiliates&utm_source=affiliate_banner&utm_medium=display&utm_content=&utm_medium=affiliate&affiliate_code=f6DOlXW0rK06969zY6BcVVimx4GX7nL&referring_service=banner&element_id=21″> <img src=”https://m2media.jacksonsart.com/media/amasty_affiliate/banner/Jacksons_Affliates_728x90_1.jpg”></a>
You can then embed this code into your website.
How to Withdraw Your Affiliate Credit
One of the main differences with the new Affiliate Program is the way in which affiliates can withdraw credit. There is still the option to withdraw via PayPal or Bank Transfer, however the process for using Store Credit has altered – rather than automatically being available in the Basket, affiliates will need to withdraw funds in their Affiliate Account in order to make it available to use as payment.
In order to request a withdrawal, simply put the amount you would like to withdraw (the minimum amount is $20 for Australian and Canadian affiliates) and click ‘REQUEST WITHDRAWAL’ We will then contact you to find out your preferred method of payment – PayPal, Bank Transfer or Store Credit. PayPal and Bank Transfer withdrawal requests are processed once a month, on the last Friday of every month.
If you are planning on using your commission as Store Credit, once your withdrawal request has been approved (within 48 hours), simply select the ‘STORE CREDIT’ option during the checkout process to deduct it from the total amount in your Basket.
