Check out our FAQs below.

  • What is the Square Online Store Affiliate Program?

    The Square Online Store Affiliate Program allows site owners to earn commissions on new Square Online Store accounts and specific events. When a visitor to your site clicks on the specialized Square Online Store affiliate tracking links you’ve placed on your website and completes a commissionable event, you earn a commission. It’s just that simple.

  • I am already a Weebly Affiliate or Square Affiliate. Do I need to apply?

    Yes. The Weebly Affiliate Program and Square Affiliate Program are separate programs with different requirements.

  • What is Impact?

    Impact is a trusted third-party affiliate marketing network where the Square Online Store affiliate program is hosted. They provide affiliates with trusted third-party tracking, real-time reporting, and monthly commission checks.

  • What sorts of sites can become Square Online Store affiliates?

    We encourage all interested sites to apply. We accept sites that are relevant to our products and do not contain objectionable, offensive, or illegal materials. Please be aware that Section 1.3 of Square’s Payment Terms prohibits select industries from utilizing their services and we cannot accept these types of sites as affiliates.

    Affiliates must have a valid website address, and valid email address in order to participate. Affiliates can differentiate themselves by having a top-level domain name, and by providing a description of their intent to participate. We may review/reject/accept any application for any reason.

    By participating in the Square Online Store affiliate program, you agree to our supplemental Terms and Conditions. Participants caught violating or attempting to circumvent these rules or our strict search engine policy will have all affiliate credit voided and will not receive payouts. Additionally, they will be banned from further participation in our affiliate program.

    Also, please note that Square Online Store does not offer coupons, so we do not accept coupon focused sites into the Square Online Store Affiliate Program.

  • How quickly will you review my application?

    We personally review affiliate applications every business day, and you should receive an answer within 24-48 hours of applying. If we have a question about your application, we will contact you via the email address you provided upon sign up to the Square Online Store Affiliate Program.

  • Can I join if my site is not based in the United States?

    Yes, the Square Online Store Affiliate Program welcomes international affiliates. Please be aware that Square Online Store is currently only available to customers in the following regions: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. Certain tracking events are excluded from specific customer regions and that all commission payments made by Impact will be made in US Dollars.

  • Where do I get banners and links?

    Once we approve your site, you will have access within Impact to the Square Online Store banners, links, and other creative assets that you can utilize to drive traffic to Square Online Store. You can select what best suits your audience. After deciding which links you would like to use, copy your specialized HTML link to your site and it will track your traffic and revenue. You must use the links provided in order to generate commissions.

    We also provide approved affiliates with a content kit that includes brand guidelines, product screenshots, and interface overviews.

  • How are sales tracked from my site?

    Sales and clicks are tracked through affiliate links provided to affiliates in the Impact network. The code provided to you when you created your link contains specific tracking parameters unique to your account. It is important that the link code is posted to your site EXACTLY as it was given when you created the link. Alterations to this code can result in lost sales and click tracking. We maintain a 30 day tracking cookie.

  • Are commissions recurring?

    The Square Online Store affiliate program does not offer recurring commissions.

  • How can I view my performance?

    You can access your account at any time using the username and password that you selected when signing up for your Impact account. The reporting is all web-based, and user-friendly for your convenience. If you have questions or have difficulty locating anything in the Impact interface, please contact us for a walkthrough.

  • When do Square Online Store transactions lock in Impact?

    Transactions are finalized or “locked” in Impact 60 days after they occur in order to allow time for validating orders.

  • When and how do I get paid?

    Impact pays affiliates monthly via direct deposit or PayPal. Payments are made on or around the 15th day of the month for all affiliates who have reached the $50 minimum balance in the previous month. If your balance is less than $50, your balance will carry over to the next month.

    You are also able to schedule your payments based on your account balance or on a fixed day of the month and you are welcome to choose what works best for your business. A full payment FAQ is available from Impact.
