TGN Affiliate Program Overview and Getting Started
How does the TGN Affiliate Program work?
The TGN affiliate program is a simple way to earn money by advertising with banners on your blog or webpage. Simply login or create a regular TGN account and click on Affiliate in the navigation menu once logged in.
Then simply place the banner(s) on your blog or website. Everytime a customer clicks through and continues to make a purchase, your account will automatically be credited with 5% of the sale (not including tax and shipping). You can track all activity in your affiliate account on our website, and request cash withdrawls after you’ve accumulated a minimum of $20.
How do I get started?
To begin simply click on Affiliate after you've logged into your account and request access. We will ask for basic information such as name, email, and address. We may after some time also send you a tax form W-9. This will ask you for your name or company name and Social Security or Tax ID number. This must be on file in the event that you earn $600 or more in a given year. If you do make this amount, Federal regulations require that you be treated as a sub-contractor, so we must send you a 1099 at the end of the tax year to claim your income. If you have a corporation or llc, we will not send the 1099, but we will need your business Tax ID on the form we send.
After your account is setup you will be able to login to your account here. Navigate to the affiliate section and get started!
That’s it! Now that you have your unique banner code, you’ll just need to paste it into your website or blog. Since this steps varies from website to website, you’ll need to know how to do this step yourself, or drop us a line through a ticket, and we’ll do our best to assist.
