The GermanPod101.com affiliate program enables you to place banner and text links to GermanPod101.com on your website. By placing these links on your site, your visitors have the opportunity to click through to GermanPod101.com and subscribe to our Basic or Premium subscriptions. When this happens, we pay you a 25% commission for each sale as agreed to between you and GermanPod101.com.

For example, let's say you have a site all about languages, and you are an affiliate of ours. John the language student comes to your site to do some research on German, and sees the link to GermanPod101.com. Realizing that he could sure use German lessons, he clicks on the link, goes to GermanPod101.com, and buys a $180, 12-Month subscription. Since you are the affiliate that sent John to GermanPod101.com, you receive a commission of $45.

A cookie is a small piece of data that is transferred to a computer in order to mark it for a later transaction. Affiliate programs are based on cookies. The way they work is that when a user comes to your site and clicks on the link of a site you are affiliated with, a cookie is placed on that user's computer. Then, even if they leave the site and come back a week later to make a purchase, you will get credit for the purchase and receive a commission. A merchant can make the duration of a cookie as long or as short as they want, depending on their needs and strategy. Big consumer companies like Walmart or Best Buy have very short ones, our cookies are set to never expire!
