Affiliates FAQ

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is a form of reward for people who drive traffic to our website. Affiliate Marketers will post links of specific designs to social media and online forums and if anyone purchases those products, the Affiliate Marketer will get a percentage of the sales price as commission.

How does Affiliate Marketing work?

All the links that our Affiliates post will have an unique ID. With this ID, we are able to track whenever someone enters our website. If they buy the product, the Affiliate will receive commission as a reward for driving the traffic to our website.

How much commission does an Affiliate Marketer makes?

Commission can fluctuate between 40-60% depending on your account. We guarantee a minimum of 40% of the product price (shipping fees excluded). The artist who uploads the design to the product gets 6% of the product price. For example, if you uploaded a design to a T-shirt and posted the affiliate link to Facebook, should someone buys the T-shirt using the link posted, you will earn 46-66% as commission.

What are Collections?

We understand sometimes you will want to recommend more than one design. Without having to spam your target group, you can group those designs together and form a collection. Not only that, you will have the freedom to offer discounts to your audience. For example, if you are a yoga enthusiast, perhaps you want to share a collection of yoga leggings designs with your fellow exercise lovers. Using just one URL showing a host of designs will appear cleaner and more professional than posting several links for different designs.

When using Collections, how will it affect my Commission?

If you setup a Collection with a discount, the commission you get will also be reduced by the same percentage. For example, if the original rates for the affiliate and artists are 60% and 6% respectively, these will be reduced to 54% and 5.4% if a 10% discount is used.

What is a Super Affiliate?

A Super Affiliate is a website that is a clone of CowCow which attracts its own Affiliate Marketers. For example, all the product designs from CowCow are copied to a new website called www.pattyville.com. The owner of this website, otherwise known as the Super Affiliate, can find Affiliate Marketers to post product links on social media, forums and pass onto friends. Each time somebody purchases an item via these affiliate links, the Super Affiliate receives 5% of the sale price as commission. Commission rates for the Affiliate Marketer and Artist remains the same, regardless of whether the item was bought on CowCow or other Super Affiliate websites.

How do I set a Super Affiliate Website?

Go to My Account and then All Stores. Open a Free Store and fill in the relevant information. Go to www.actnowdomain.net and find a website that you like and is available for the right price. Once you have purchased the website domain, mouse over your username and click on Manage My Domains. Then click on Manage DNS. Change the nameservers to the following:
