Gloo.ng Affiliates Frequently Asked Questions
- What is an affiliate program? How does it work?
An affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (that's you!) drives traffic to a merchant's web site (that's us!) in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor to your site, blog or social media clicks on the affiliate link to our site and completes a purchase, you get a commission on every item they buy! We provide our affiliates with tracking, reporting, prompt monthly payments, and the flexibility of being an affiliate. Once you sign up for and are accepted to our program, you’ll be provided with a login link. Here you can log in at any time to get our banners and links, find out about commissions earned and even learn about how many impressions each of your links has received.
- How do I get started?
- Step 1: Sign up! If you're already registered, click here to login.
- Step 2: We manually review all applications within 3 business days. Once your application is approved, you will have access to your dashboard to view banners and text links to publish on your website, blog or social media.

- Who can participate?
Just about anybody! Whether you run a large commercial web site, a small personal blog, a non-profit site, or have a social media presence (e.g. Facebook or Twitter) or anything in between, you're welcome to apply to join the program. All applications are manually reviewed, and we reserve the right to refuse any application, especially if the site contains objectionable material, participates in unsolicited e-mailing, or if it violates the Gloo.ng Affiliate Agreement.
- Does it cost anything to participate?
Being a Gloo.ng Affiliate is totally free. As long as you are an active affiliate, all you need to do is keep linking and then collect your commissions afterward.
- How are sales tracked from my site, blog or social media?
Once your application is accepted, you will be given a unique affiliate ID as well as custom-formatted links that will ensure that traffic coming from your site is properly tracked. We maintain a 30-day cookie, meaning that if a visitor clicks on a link from your site, you are credited with the sale as long as the visitor purchases within 30 days. If a visitor purchases more than once during that 30-day period, you earn commission on ALL such additional purchases. The Gloo.ng Affiliate Platform automatically records all transactions from your site in real time, meaning that all impressions, links, and sales are tracked instantly. The Gloo.ng Affiliate Dashboard has all of the reports and tracking resources you'll need to see how you're doing. You can use these reports to find out which of your links are performing the best and to optimize your site for maximum sales.
- How much will I earn? How and when do I get paid?
All new affiliates can earn commissions of 3%, with a cookie length of 30 days. Affiliates are paid every 30 days and when the commission balance is N 3,000 or more. Please refer Gloo.ng Affiliate Agreement for more information.
- I'm signed up, now what?
Once your application is approved, you will receive an e-mail welcoming you and communicating your approval as a GlooAffiliate. It will include your login url and details. You can then login to view your dashboard and access our pre-designed banners and links.
- How do I create links to Gloo.ng?
Current affiliates can get links, including banners and text ads here. We will be regularly updating our banners, to include lots of resources to help you sell. You're also welcome to create links of your own, as long as they conform to the Gloo.ng Affiliate Agreement. Feel free to link to the home page, category pages (like Food & Drinks for example) or to product pages directly.
- How do I link to a specific product?
To link directly to our products, use the "Get Link" tool which allows you to grab the links you need that are correctly formatted with your tracking code. If you log into your Gloo.ng Affiliate Account, and go to "Banners & Links”, copy the url of the specific product you want to promote and paste in the text box provided, then click “Get Link”. (You'll see the destination URL listed in this format http://www.gloo.ng/product-name.html?acc=*accountID*#.) Paste this link within the text of your post and the sales will be attributed to you.
