Indigo Affiliate Program - FAQ

What is an affiliate?

An affiliate can be anyone with a website – from large, high-traffic sites to personal blogs or low-traffic web pages. If you have a website, you can earn money by putting an Indigo.ca link on your page. When a visitor clicks on that link and purchases books, toys, gifts or more, a percentage of that sale is yours to keep – up to 5%!

What are referral fees?

A referral fee is a commission paid to your account after a visitor visits your site, clicks on an Indigo.ca link and makes a purchase. The more people click through and order, the more money you earn! See the rate structure in our Program Details for more info.

What is Commission Junction?

Commission Junction (CJ) is the premier third party affiliate network on the web. Indigo has partnered with CJ to give you the best affiliate experience available. With in-depth reporting, account management tools and advanced links, you'll earn top fees in no time.
