Frequently asked questions
How can I join?
Just click on the sign-up button and fill in the form. If you've already got a Commission Junction account, you can sign-up for Avast Affiliate Program directly from there.
What affiliate network is the Avast affiliate program on?
We work exclusively with Commission Junction. You'll need to sign-up through them if you want to join our program.
Do I need a website or blog to become your partner?
Well, no, but it might be hard to make money without one. You always have options though: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube… there are a lot of ways to spread the word to friends and family.
Are there any costs to join?
Nope. It’s free for everyone.
Do I have to create my own ads and artwork to promote Avast?
No, we can offer you some pre-made links and banners free of charge. There are a lot to choose from, so just pick whichever one grabs you—just be aware they are region specific.
Can I promote Avast products via paid search?
You can, BUT there are certain restrictions in place that must be followed. You can learn about it more when you become an affiliate and read the affiliate policy. Just be careful and make sure you don’t break any rules—if you do, you could be kicked out of the affiliate program.
What countries participate in the Avast affiliate program?
What commission will I receive on sales?
Earn a fixed 35% commission on a 60 day cookie for the first month.
After the first month, you earn between 15% and 30% based on revenue on a 60 day cookie.
Avast wants to reward publishers helping increase brand awareness. Therefore, content publishers will receive a fixed CPA 30% no matter how many sales they reach. On the other hand, publishers working mainly / exclusively via browser extension will receive 10%.
The default commission will be changing from 25% flat to a 15% tiered structure.
More details below, all the revenue is based on orders paid that haven’t been refunded in any way:
15% - monthly revenue below $500
20% - monthly revenue between $500 - $999
25% - monthly revenue between $1000 - $1999
30% - monthly revenue equal or above $2000
The good news is — regardless of who the publisher is, they all receive 35% CPA for the whole first month!
How will sales be tracked to me?
We track the sales via the links and banners you put on your website or share with others. When a potential customer clicks on the URL, a cookie is dropped to track any affiliate sales that come from that visit.
What if the potential customer goes to your site through my referral but buys at a later date going directly to your site?
The cookie that is dropped to track affiliate sale activity lasts for 60 days. As long as they make a sale in that period, you’ll get your commission. But be aware that this only applies to the most recent cookie dropped by the customer—if they click another affiliate’s ad after yours and then makes the sale, they’ll get the commission.
