If you have specific questions please contact us at affiliate@linotype.com


1. Who can take part?
If you have a website of your own that is live at the time of your application, you are welcome to apply. We review each site carefully, both before and after it is approved. Linotype reserves the right to refuse or revoke membership to sites with little or no original content, or that are no longer live.


2. How does it work?
Simply link to Linotype.com from your affiliate site. When a customer is directed from your site and makes a purchase on Linotype.com, you earn a 10% commission. Joining the Linotype Affiliate Program is a simple and exciting way to make your website more profitable.


3. How much does it cost?
Participation in the Linotype Affiliate Program is free. You will of course be responsible, as before, for the costs incurred in the operation of your website.


4. How do I take part?
Affiliates only need to link to Linotype.com using standard links or the supplied banners. As long as your website is registered in the affiliate system, we automatically track referrals and transactions on our end.

Linotype furthermore handles the heavy lifting. We process the orders, make the fonts available for download, and provide customer service and support. Best of all, you don’t have to be an accountant (or hire one) to join! Our centralized reporting provides sales totals and site traffic reports.


5. How do I keep track of the revenue I’ve earned?
Our commission tracking system, provided through a trusted third party, keeps a running tab of the referral bonuses you have earned. You can logon 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to check your account.


6. How much commission will I earn for sales that originate from my site?
We will pay you a 10% commission on all sales that occur during a linked session from your site to Linotype.com. We will not pay you a commission if we cannot track the link back to your site or if a customer accesses our site without using a link from your site. Commissions are based on net sales (less credits for returned goods, taxes (if any), duties, credit card fraud, and bad debt charges).


7. How do I get paid?
Each month, if you have accumulated at least 50 USD in commissions, you will receive a commission check in the mail. If your commissions are less than 50 USD, we will roll the amount into the following month’s commission check.
As a general guide, your customers will only need to purchase around five fonts to reach this amount, but depending on the product one sale may be enough!


8. Can I take part, even if I am already taking part in a different affiliate program?
No problem, you can of course feature affiliate programs from other suppliers on your site as well, provided that these suppliers do not require exclusivity.
