Frequently Asked Questions

If you're not sure if you want to join our Affiliate program, or if you've been having problems with either signing up to it, implementing it, or running it, we've probably got the answer to your questions here.

If you can't find what you're looking for here, please feel free to email affiliates@sheetmusicdirect.com, and we will attempt to get back to you as soon as possible.

No, even better! We don't put links from SheetMusicDirect.com to other peoples' sites, but we do pay real money to anyone that links to us. Your site becomes a miniature shop and you get a certain percentage of any sales that come to us from your site.

All sorts of sites link to SheetMusicDirect.com, and we work with dealers of all sizes whose websites cover a wide variety of interests - from official artist pages right through to general music and virtual shopping malls. Some may make a lot of money from us, others may only send us a couple of visitors a year, but no-one loses out as it's completely free to become an affiliate.

You don't. You don't need to order from us, buy stock from us, send any money or sell anything for us. Just link to our site in the way which suits you best, and we will log everyone that comes from your site, and send you your percentage.

Sign-up NOW!

You earn a commission based on a percentage of the sale price of all the products sold through your site (it's currently set at 10%). If you earn more than US$30 in a quarter, we will send you a check another month later. If you earn less than US$30, we will wait until the total amount we owe you is at least US$30 and then send it, unless you terminate your agreement with us, in which case we will send it to you straight away.

See our Affiliate Operating Agreement for full details.

When you sign up as an affiliate, we will send you a unique Affiliate ID number. You must include this in the appropriate place in every link from your site to ours. Then, when any customer comes to SheetMusicDirect.com, our web server logs your Affiliate ID, and we know that they've come from you. We can then generate reports which correspond to all the activity, traffic and sales from your site.

Try to make shopping an integral part of your site. Rather than just having one link to SheetMusicDirect.com, you can display individual products which fit in with your site's content, or even let your visitors search our catalogue from your site. Also, keep checking your links, and keep checking our site so that you have the most up to date information possible.

Subscribe to our Affiliates newsletter and we will be able to send you information on new ways to link to us, as well as tips to keep your site up to date with what's happening at Sheet Music Direct. We also have a general mailout and newsletters for different departments, so you can keep up to date with all our latest titles, whether you are interested in Guitars, Opera or Education.

If you still haven't found an answer to your problem here, just email affiliates@sheetmusicdirect.com, and we will try to solve it as quickly as possible.
