What is the NBAStore.com Affiliate Program?


The NBAStore.com Affiliate Program invites website owners, bloggers, social media publishers, supporters groups and online forum operators to promote our site and products and earn commissions on sales they refer to NBAStore.com.

How does the NBAStore.com Affiliate Program work?
First, prospective affiliates go through an application process where first, our network partner and then our affiliate team will review your site to make sure that it’s suitable for an affiliate partnership. We take the NBA brand and the brands of our teams, players and vendors seriously, so we’re very selective with our affiliate partnerships.

Once your affiliate application is approved, you will have access to an affiliate dashboard at ShareASale.com stocked with ready-to-use tracking links including banners, text links, and product ads that you can use to promote NBAStore.com . When a shopper clicks your affiliate link and makes a qualified purchase, you'll earn a commission on the sale. ShareASale also provides easy access to reporting on traffic sent, sales generated and commissions earned.

How will I get paid?
ShareASale handles payment of affiliate commissions. They pay commissions monthly on around the 20th for sales referred in the previous month less any order modifications, cancellations or chargebacks. Payment can be made either by check or by direct deposit into your bank account. Minimum payout thresholds may apply.
