FAQ - Affiliates



What is the affiliate program? How does it work?

The Avenza Maps™ affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where the affiliate (you) drives traffic to our website in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor on your site or store clicks on an affiliate link and completes a purchase on our website, you get a commission on every map purchased. We provide affiliates with tracking, reporting, prompt monthly payments and ideas on how to share affiliate links. After you sign up and accept the terms of our affiliate program, affiliates have the ability to generate affiliate links for any page on www.pdf-maps.com, including links directly to individual maps and bundles. These links can be added to websites or QR codes and any interaction with those links will be tracked live throughout a customer's session in the Map Store and a share of any resulting revenue will be added to your account.


I'm already a registered vendor, can I be an affiliate too?

Yes! If you're already a Map Store vendor you can be an affiliate too. You will earn an affiliate commission in addition to your normal revenue share.


How much will I earn?

You will earn 5% of the purchase price of each map sold (after processing fees are deducted by Apple, Google or PayPal) using your affiliate links.


How do I get paid?

Once you accrue a minimum balance of $100 in reconciled earnings* you can request a payment. If you are already a vendor whose balance exceeds this, you can request a vendor payment to include your affiliate balance. Amounts marked with (*) are not yet reconciled. Sales are reconciled approximately six weeks after the end of the month in which they occur. As a result of reconcilation amounts could be adjusted based on foreign exchange rates, withholding taxes, payment processor commissions, customer refunds and other factors.


How do I promote links?

You can promote Avenza Maps links on your blog, website, store, social networks, or, include links in emails to your subscriber lists. If you operate in a physical store, you can create signage with the link as a QR code for customers to scan.


Does it cost anything to participate?

No, there is no cost to sign up as an affiliate.


I just signed up, where do I start?

Visit Avenza Maps, login, then go to your Affiliate Program tab. It contains information and details including your net balance, monthly earnings and current active Avenza Maps affiliate links. If you're ready to start adding links to your site, see the next question below.


How do I create links to maps?

You can get affiliate links by going to the Map Store and viewing map listings. Beside each map is a button to generate an affiliate link. Simply copy and paste the generated link to a section of your website. If you have a physical store, you can create signage with the link as a QR code for customers to scan.

If you're a vendor, you can also create affiliate links from your vendor portal. Click the Get Affiliate Links button to generate affiliate links for all maps on the current page. The links are created in a downloadable text file.

If you wish to get a link at a later time, you can return directly to a map by viewing your affiliate page and clicking the product link in the list of active links. At the bottom of that page you will find your affiliate link.

Also generated with the link is embeddable HTML that can be pasted directly into a section of your website. The Map Store link also generates HTML with an associated Avenza Map Store icon. This icon can be customized by replacing the link of the image in the <img src> tag with a link to your own icon.
