Frequently Asked Questions
What is an affiliate program?
An affiliate program is a service that allows websites and blogs to earn a commission on sales referred to Steve Spangler Science and Spangler Science Club using specific links provided by, and tracked, via ShareASale.com. Our team uploads custom creatives (banners and pictures), text links and product information (datafeed) to ShareASale that bloggers and website owners can add to their websites. ShareASale tracks all clicks from the Spangler banners and text links on your website – so when one of those clicks results in a sale, you earn a commission of that specific sale.
For example, if a reader clicks on any of the Spangler banners and purchases a subscription box – you earn $10 for a month-to-month or 3-month subscription and $15 for a 12-month subscription. If a reader purchases $50 worth of products, you would earn $4 (or 8% of the total product sale).
