Which affiliate network is the Avast Affiliate Program a part of?
We work exclusively with Commission Junction, so you'll need to sign up through them if you’d like to join our program.
Do I need a website or blog to become an affiliate?
A website or blog is not required, but it might be hard to make money without one. You still have the option to use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc., and there are a variety of ways to spread the word through friends and family.

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 Avast Affiliate Program policy.
What commission will I receive on sales?
You’ll earn a fixed 35% commission for the first month. After the first month, you’ll earn between 15% and 30% based on monthly revenue.
See more details below. All revenue is based on paid orders.
15% - monthly revenue below $500
20% - monthly revenue between $500 - $999
25% - monthly revenue between $1000 - $1999
30% - monthly revenue equal or above $2000
Avast wants to reward publishers who are helping increase brand awareness. Therefore, content publishers will receive a fixed 30% commission for sales.
On the other hand, publishers working mainly or exclusively via browser extension will receive a 10% commission.
Regardless of who the publisher is, all publishers will receive 35% CPA for the first month.
Additionally, we are happy to increase your commission in exchange for special exposure of Avast products on your website.
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 by going directly to your site?
The cookie that is dropped to track affiliate sales activity lasts for 60 days. As long as the customer makes a purchase within that period, you’ll get your commission. Please note that this only applies to the most recent cookie dropped by the customer. If the customer clicks another affiliate’s ad after yours, and then makes a purchase, the affiliate with the most recently clicked ad will get the commission.
