Your burning affiliate questions, answered.

Log in at Impact, go to Ads » Ads and links.
After logging into your Impact account, use the Create a link box on the main page (p.s. this does not work for custom links). Alternatively, you can use a link shortening site like bit.ly or tinyurl.
Projects count towards your lifetime sales and will have payouts. Payouts for projects are $25 for Associate affiliates, $35 for Affiliate partners, and $50 for Brand partners.
We use 1st-click attribution. 1st-click attribution is an analytics model in which the first click that brings a visitor to a website is given credit for any sale or conversion that takes place.
Let's use Jane as an example. Jane's never heard of 99designs and searches online for how to get a tattoo designed before bringing it to a shop. She finds your site, clicks your affiliate link, and purchases a contest for tattoo design on 99designs. This will give you a full commission as a 1st click sale since Jane had never been to 99designs.com before.
Great question! Once you hit the required lifetime sales, we'll send you an email letting you know. We'll automatically bump you up to the next commission level, so there's nothing you need to do on your end.
Once you reach the milestone of 50 1st-click lifetime sales, we'll bump you up to our Brand Partner tier. At this stage, you'll get a white-glove experience complete with landing page and other benefits.
