Frequently Asked Questions

1. What do I need to become an NAHB BuilderBooks Retail Affiliate?

Nothing! Except your desire to be an affiliate.

You don't even need a website (although having your own website helps). You can promote our products via social media or simply emailing to all your members and people you know with your retail affiliate link. All you need to do is send a visitor to our site via a special link (called 'retail affiliate link'), and if that person buys anything from us, you will get 10% of the sale value.

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?

The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses a combination of cookies and IP addresses to track referrals for the best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on his or her computer. When the visitor pays for the product, the affiliate system checks for the cookie (if not found, checks for IP address of referral) and credits your account 10% of the purchase value. This process is completely automatic. Your referrals will be properly tracked.

3. How is the payment handled?

All payments are issued in US dollars, and paid annually, in March by check. You must have $20 in commission in order to receive payment.
