What is the AdventistMatch.com Affiliate Program?
The AdventistMatch.com Affiliate Program will pay you every time you refer a new AdventistMatch.com member registration from your site. Joining the AdventistMatch.com Affiliate Program is not only a way to make money, but it can also add value to your site and you are helping us to print Bibles for evangelism.
How do I get started with the affiliate program?
It's a simple three-step process: read the Terms and Conditions, fill out the Affiliate Application, and when AdventistMatch.com accepts your application, you will be notified via email about how to link to us and start earning money.
Can I participate if I live outside the U.S.?
Yes though commission payments for affiliates will be made in U.S. dollars only.
Why do I have to provide my social security number?
We need this information for tax filing purposes. If you are an individual (as opposed to a business/corporation), we need your Social Security number, because if your calendar-year commissions exceed $600, AdventistMatch.com must issue you a Form 1099MISC at the end of the calendar year that must be filed with Form 1040.
Does my Web site qualify for the AdventistMatch.com Affiliate Program?
Anyone can apply for the program. However, AdventistMatch.com reserves the right to refuse any site, especially if it contains unsuitable material.
I don't have a Web site. Can I still apply to be an affiliate with AdventistMatch.com?
No, you can not be an affiliate, though you can become a Representative for your area. You must first become a member of AdventistMatch.com and then apply to become a Rep on the "Member's Homepage."
How much will I earn for each registered member whom I refer?
You will receive $0.50 per new AdventistMatch.com member registration that you refer from your site. No fees shall be payable if a visitor leaves the AdventistMatch.com site without filling out the registration form in full. You will receive 10% of the Membership fee when a user you refer pays online.
When and how do I get paid?
You will be paid monthly by check when your AdventistMatch.com account reaches a minimum of $10. If your earnings are less than $10, the amount will be carried over to the next month. Commission checks are issued within 35 days of the end of each month.
Setting Up My Affiliate Links
How can I download graphics and logos from AdventistMatch.com to my Web site?
All the graphics, logos, and linking codes are hosted on the AdventistMatch.com server. You may not host any AdventistMatch.com graphics on your site.
May I link to AdventistMatch.com from more than one Web site?
Yes. You are welcome to link to AdventistMatch.com from multiple Web sites, as long as none of the sites violates any applicable law, regulation, or third-party right; encourages illegal activity or racism; or features hard liquor, tobacco products, gambling, or materials, products, or services related to pornography. Submit the URLs for all sites, which you plan to use to promote AdventistMatch.com, via email to [email protected].
In order to break out the tracking for multiple Web sites, you can append your affiliate URL with any word, number or combination of up to 10 characters.

When visitors click on the Multiple Site Affiliate URL in the example above, we would track the Affiliate ID and the sub-ID of "babylounge" and this would show up in the Current Sub ID Report.
Maintaining My AdventistMatch.com Affiliate Account
How can I promote AdventistMatch.com?

Can I use AdventistMatch.com in my URL or in the name of my site?
No. The use of AdventistMatch.com or any variation thereof in your URL or in the name of your site will be cause for your immediate dismissal from the affiliate program. In such a case when you breach the affiliate agreement, you thereby forfeit any earned commissions.
What kind of advertising can I do?
