Affiliate Program

We offer an affiliate program for people who want to help promote the book and make a few bucks. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Generous 50% commission
  • Free & easy to get started
  • Affiliate service provided by ClickBank

How it works

After registering as an affiliate at ClickBank, you get a special URL that links to our ClickBank Sales Page. For every purchase made by customers who follow your link, you earn a generous 50% commission of the net sale amount. The commission is calculated like so:

  • PDF Retail Price: $27 USD
  • Subtract ClickBank Fees: 7.5% + $1.00 = -$3.03
  • PDF Net Sale Amount: $23.97
  • 50% Commission: $11.99

So basically you get paid $12 for every PDF.

How to do it

First, sign up for a free account at ClickBank. Once you activate your account, follow these steps to become an affiliate for DigWP:

  1. Lookup ‘Digging Into WordPress’ in the ClickBank Marketplace (should be the first result).
  2. After locating our book, click the “Promote” button to the right of the product listing.
  3. On the page that opens, enter your ClickBank nickname and click the “Create” button.
  4. On the next page, you'll get two versions of your HOP Link: a plain URL version and one that’s ready to place into your web page.

That’s all there is to it, and you can always get all the gory details by visiting the ClickBank Affiliate Help Page.

Affiliate Terms

ClickBank pays their affiliates every two weeks, or every week with Direct Deposit. Check these two links for more information on becoming a ClickBank Affiliate and getting paid:
