Kiwi Crate Family Affiliate Program: FAQ

What is the kiwi crate family affiliate program and how does it work?

The Affiliate Program is a service that allows participating websites to earn commission on subscription and other sales referred to Kiwi Crate's family brands using specially tracked links. We provide you with custom links and banners that you can post on your website. Then when a visitor you've referred to us makes a purchase, we'll keep track and give you a commission on the sale.

Is my website eligible for the affiliate program?

We accept almost all types of websites that are relevant to our products and do not contain objectionable or offensive materials. We welcome all applications but reserve the right to refuse membership or revoke a membership at any time and for any reason at our sole discretion.

Are there any fees?

No. There are no fees associated with the Kiwi Crate affiliate program. It is completely free to participate.

If I have multiple websites, do I need to apply separately for each?

No. You should apply once, list all of your websites on your application and advertise Kiwi Crate's family brands on any of them once you are approved.

What is your commission rate?

We pay a $18 commission on all Kiwi Crate monthly and annual subscription sales and a $8 commission on all 3 or 6 month subscription sales. High volume affiliates may be eligible for higher commission levels.

Is there a minimum annual threshold?

No. There is no minimum sales level required to remain in the program, but you will not receive a commission check until you earn $50 in commission.

I don't have a website for my business, I don't want to put banners on my website and/or I place orders on behalf of my clients. can I still be a kiwi crate family affiliate?

Yes, it just takes some extra effort. We have text links that can be taken from the ShareASale website in the "Get Links" section. Whenever you get an order from a customer that you would like to fulfill with Kiwi Crate branded products, copy that text link into your browser and press enter. This will take you to the Kiwi Crate brand specific website through ShareASale's routing system and you'll get credit for the sale.

Will you provide extra support for high-traffic websites?

Yes. Please contact us and we'll be happy to help you with your affiliate efforts.

No. However, we recommend you purchase your orders through your own links so you can earn commission on the sales. You are also free to utilize any of the coupon codes advertised on our website or in printed marketing collateral.

How do I create links to specific kiwi crate product pages?

When you add a banner or link to your website, it will be tagged with your unique ShareASale affiliate ID. The easiest way to create links is to visit the Kiwi Crate Family ShareASale Affiliate Page once you've been approved. There, you can browse through the different categories of text and banner links, or make a custom link to any page on our product websites. To create a banner link, please log in to ShareASale's affiliate gateway and navigate to the "Get Links" area. Next, click on "Get a Link/Banner," find Kiwi Crate and click "Get Links" below our company name. You can also visit the Kiwi Crate Family Affiliate Page directly. There you can browse through the different text links and banners and get the corresponding HTML code. When you add that text link, banner or product to your website, it will be tagged with your unique ShareASale affiliate ID.

Am I obligated to place a certain number of links on my website?

No. There is neither a minimum nor any limit. We encourage you to use as many as necessary and appropriate to improve click-through and conversion rates. We have found that a creative banner along with a text link or Kiwi Crate logo improves effectiveness.

What if i already know html and need some advanced help linking?

We are happy to help you with any additional questions you may have. Just contact us for more information.

How does the affiliate program know when I should receive credit for an order?

ShareASale tracks a cookie that is automatically applied to the computer of a person who clicks on a banner or text link that has your ShareASale affiliate ID number embedded within it. Each banner or link that you create is specifically tagged with your ShareASale affiliate ID, letting us know that you earned commissions on the sales you send our way. You can access all of these banners and links by logging in to your ShareASale Account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available. These links can be used from any website, put directly into a browser or emailed out in the case of text links. You can test a link by copying and pasting it into your browser. If you are directed to the Kiwi Crate website, the link is working. Do not copy and paste a landing page url from our website (i.e. www.kiwicrate.com?SSAID=123456) and confuse it for an affiliate link, since it will not track properly. All affiliate links begin with "http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfmB="

When and how do I get paid?

ShareASale will pay your monthly commission by either check or direct deposit around the 22nd of the following month. Your account needs to have a balance of $50 or more before the end of the month in order to receive a payment. Otherwise, it will continue to roll forward into the next month until the $50 minimum is reached and we can issue a payment.

What sales and revenue reports does shareasale provide?

Each transaction is logged on ShareASale servers and is available for review in detail. ShareASale will provide real-time tracking of your clicks, sales and commission. Please do not contact Kiwi Crate for this information, since we cannot access your account. Use the links below to find some of the most useful reports, but please note that these links will only work if you are an approved affiliate.

  • Daily Traffic & Commission Report
  • Order & Sales History
  • Total Commission Earned

What if I forget my shareasale account password?

If you've forgotten your ShareASale password, please use ShareASale's password recovery to have your password sent to your email address. Because your ShareASale account is private, we do not have control over or access to this information. If you have any other issues with your ShareASale account, please contact the ShareASale support team.

What is your return days or cookie policy?

If a visitor comes to our websites from your website but does not purchase on that visit, you can still earn commission on sales from that customer if they return and make a purchase within 30 days. This works even if they navigate directly to the website on a return visit as long as they haven't deleted their cookies.

Is there a dedicated affiliate manager to contact for more questions?

Yes. We are committed to making our affiliates successful and our Affiliate Manager is available to help. Please feel free to contact our Affiliate Manager with any questions.
