Affiliate FAQ How to Make Money Promoting Jump Start


  • What is the Jump Start affiliate program?

    The Jump Start Affiliate Program allows you to promote Jump Start on your website(s) and earn top commissions for driving solid, quality traffic to our website. We have a great product that's been selling strong since 2011, and we want to pay for your help getting the word out!

  • How does the Jump Start affiliate program work?

    Our affiliate program allows you to make money by referring new customers to our website. You can do this by placing links, banners, product reviews, or any of the other content we provide you with on your website. Each time you refer a new customer to us and that customer makes a purchase, you earn a commission.

  • How can I become a Jump Start affiliate?

    All you need to do is submit the online application here. Once you're approved, you'll receive a welcome email with more instructions. If you already have a customer account, please log in before submitting your affiliate application.

  • Does it cost money to become a Jump Start affiliate?

    It's absolutely free to join our affiliate program! There's no charge to apply and there is no minimum sales requirement.

  • Can referrals be generated on purchases for clients I'm building websites for?

    Yes. While you can build as many sites as you like under one Jump Start license, only you will have access to support and updates. So it's always a good idea for your client to buy their own Jump Start license, as well. Feel free to instruct your client to purchase through your affiliate link.

  • Can referrals be generated on my own purchases?

    No. Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address). Doing this is a violation of our affiliate terms and conditions.

  • Is there a monthly sales target?

    There is no minimum sales requirement or monthly target sales amount to remain a part of our affiliate program. However, if no visits have been generated in a 6-month period, your account will be considered dormant and suspended. But if this happens, we'd be happy to work with you to get it going again!

  • How much commission will I earn?

    You will earn 25% of every new sale you refer. This includes the Jump Start theme and all future products we sell at our website. This does not include Jump Start license renewals.

  • Is there a limit to how much I can earn?

    Nope. The sky's the limit! The more sales you refer, the more you get paid.

  • What if I need help with my affiliate account?

    If you're having any issues with your payouts, marketing materials, or anything to do with your affiliate account, feel free to email us any time at .


  • How are referrals tracked?

    It's probably no surprise that we use both WordPress and Jump Start to power our own sales website. So when it comes to powering our affiliate program, we've decided to use the most popular and widely trusted WordPress plugin, AffiliateWP by Pippin Williamson.

    AffiliateWP uses cookies to track affiliates and visits so referrals can be generated. This is the industry-standard in basic affiliate tracking. So feel confidence with a solid affiliate tracking system in place!

  • How are my sales tracked?

    Your affiliate links contain your unique affiliate ID, allowing us to track anyone directed from your website. For example, if your tracking ID were 123, you'll have a basic affiliate link like this:

    This tracking ID is associate with the stored cookies from your referrals. This is how we're able to associate your referrals with your affiliate account.

  • How long is a cookie valid for?

    30 days. — When a potential customer clicks on your referral link and arrives on our website, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral.
