Who can become an Affiliate?
Anyone can become an affiliate with The Endless Bookcase. All you need to do is signup – to do so click ‘Affiliate Signup’ in the sidebar of this page. If you are already an author or member with The Endless Bookcase on the ‘Author’ half of this website you will still need to create a new Affiliate login. However, we suggest using the same login details and password to keep things simple!
If you have your own website you can help promote and sell your own book and other books using a specific affiliate link for each book you would like to promote. In return you receive 20% of the net price of any books sold through your site (see full Ts and Cs).
How it works
First you need to sign up as an affiliate, if you are an author please login using the same login details that you use for the Endless Bookcase. On the right hand side of this page there is an ‘Affiliate login’ section. If you are not a member of The Endless Bookcase please create a new login.
Once you have signed in, you can access the affiliate dashboard (if you are logged in now there should be a link to ‘Access the Affiliate Dashboard’ in the sidebar of this page) and it will redirect you to a page looking something like this:
Once you have logged into the affiliate dashboard, you will need to click on the ‘EDIT PROFILE’ tab and fill in your details. Once these details have been entered you are ready to set up the links from your site to ours.
Next, visit the ‘ADS’ tab. This page should show you a selection of books with boxes next to them that have coding for each book. Find the book/s you would like to add to your website, copy the code/s and paste them wherever you would like to add them on your website.
Once saved, the code should appear on your website as an image with an embedded link, it will appear something like this once you have saved your webpage:
Once that’s set up, if a customer clicks on the book (which redirects them to the correct book page on our website) and then purchases it, you will receive 20% of the net book price.
The terms and conditions
The affiliate scheme only works if a customer clicks on a book link from your website to ours and purchases the same book that same book in the same session. If a customer visits but does not purchase you will not receive commission. If a customer visits but doesn’t purchase and comes back another day to purchase but does not go through your website again you will not receive commission. To reduce the chance of this happening you can ask customers to make sure they do not redirect from the book page on our site before purchasing, or that if they wish to purchase at a later late if they could do so by revisiting your site to visit a book page on ours.
