Walmart Affiliate

Updated on February 7, 2013

Walmart Affiliate Program

Become a Walmart affiliate and make money by selling merchandise from this trusted retailer. I love being a Walmart affiliate. I can earn money by selling a large variety of products online through the Walmart Affiliate Program. It's so easy. All you need is a blog, website, or pages on a free publishing platform such as Squidoo or Hubpages and you can start offering Walmart products and earn 4% commission.

The Walmart Affiliate Program is available through LinkShare. Read on to learn how to sign up for your free LinkShare account and start earning money online as a Walmart affiliate.

How to Become a Walmart Affiliate

How to join the Walmart affiliate program

Many major retailers utilize Affiliate Marketing Networks in order to run their affiliate programs. Macy's, CompUSA, OfficeDepot, and Walmart are just a few examples of major retailers that use an affiliate network instead of running their own affiliate program, and they all use LinkShare. This is because the retailers are in the business of selling products and don't want to spend the time or resources to organize, track, and run an entire affilaite program.

The way an affiliate network opperates is that you sign up under them as an affiliate. You choose which retailers you want to represent, then select products that compliment the content you have on your site or blog and then link to the item on the retailer's site using your affiliate link. The affiliate network, in this case LinkShare, then tracks when someone purchases an item through your referral link and then credits you for the commission of that sale. The affiliate network then pays you on pay day once you meet the requirements for minimum payout.

Walmart using LinkShare to run their affilaite program. I've been with LinkShare for over five years now. They always pay me and I've never had a problem using their tools to create banners and links.

Why I Like Being a Walmart Affiliate

  1. Everyone recognizes and trusts the Walmart name, so when a visitors clicks on one of my product links and finds themselves on the Walmart website, they frequently order something.
  2. Walmart offers tons of products that fit the content on my blogs and pages. I've sold everything from rocking chairs to toys through my Walmart affiliate links.
  3. LinkShare makes it super easy to be a Walmart affiliate. They offer tons of banner ads and product links to place on my sites, but they also offer a simple tool for created deeplinks to any product I choose on the Walmart.com site.
  4. I get to earn commission on products that I would recommend to friends and family for free.

      No, I am not a Walmart Affiliate. In fact, I wasn't aware that Walmart has an affiliate program. Now that I am aware of, I will contemplate being one. Small but a very piece of information.

      No i am not a Walmart affiliate but with sooo many options its very tempting to become one the only downfall is the very low commissions when there are products out there that offer as high as 60 or 80.

      I also was not aware that Walmart has an affiliate offer available. Currently I am mostly doing Clickbank and Amazon. By far, Clickbank has been the best for me b/c of how high their commission is, versus most of the other sites.
