Who can join the VIPSEATS Affiliate Partner Network?

Any site can apply to become an affiliate of VIPSEATS.COM. The sites that will have the most success will probably relate to the sports or entertainment industry, however unrelated sites have had great success with our program in the past. Simply ask yourself, “do my visitors have any interest in buying premium event tickets?” if the answer is yes, then this program is right for you. Your site must be “live” to become an affiliate member. Sites that are out of the United States are also welcome and encouraged to apply. But most of the events listed on our site take place in the US and all commissions will be paid in US dollars.

What kind of content can be on the site?

Any website can apply for the program, however VIPSEATS.COM reserves the right to refuse any site. We will NOT approve applications from Web sites that:

  • Promote sexually explicit materials or nudity
  • Promote violence
  • Promote any type of discrimination
  • Promote illegal activities
  • Violate any copyrights or intellectual property rights
  • Promote the use of bulk email or spam

If you make changes to your content once you have been accepted, please remember not to violate any of our guidelines, otherwise the partnership may be terminated.

Will I earn commission for all products displayed on VIPSEATS.com?

Commission will be paid for any event tickets or event package tours that are purchased online directly from your unique link. Also if you drive a considerable amount of traffic and sales to VIPSEATS you may be able to earn a higher commission percentage. Send an email to affiliates@VIPSEATS.COM to learn how to qualify.

How and when will I be paid?

Referral fees are paid monthly by check if there is at least $25 in the affiliate account. If there is less than $25, commissions will roll over to the next month and accumulate until the $25 minimum is reached. Once $25 or more accumulates the account will be paid in the next monthly cycle.

Can I make more commissions per sale?

Yes. We will upgrade your commission if your site sends VIPseats significant volume and if your referrals are of high quality. Send an email to affiliates@VIPSEATS.COM to learn more.

How do you keep track of my sales and statistics?

When your visitor clicks through your affiliate link, your unique identification code will be assigned to that session. A temporary cookie is placed on their computer, which follows the visitor through the transaction. Once a purchase is made the sale amount is placed as a pending sale for you. Once the order is validated the amount will show up in your account. Orders are verified to ensure that no fraudulent orders are completed. You can view your sales stats through the affiliate admin interface.

How can I create links to VIPSEATS.com?

Once you are approved to be an affiliate you will be sent an email with the specific link you need to use when linking to our site. Remember that the visitor must enter our site with your unique link for commission to be paid. Additional creative is available on the affiliate website. We offer a quick links tool through the affiliate admin tool that you can access through your account. This tool will provide you with links to all the events in the VIPSEATS database.

Can I use the same ID for different pages?

Yes, you can use the same ID on multiple pages. If you need help setting this up send an email to affiliates@VIPSEATS.COM requesting more information on how to create this type of link.

Can I create links to other pages on VIPSEATS.com?

While we prefer our affiliates to use the links we provide, if you have a special campaign running or feature information about a specific team, musical group or any live event and want to link directly to an event page, you can do so. There is a special linking format you must use so please send an email message to affiliates@VIPSEATS.COM requesting more information on how to create this type of link.

Can I use the VIPSEATS.com name in my press release?

Yes, but only if you identify your relationship clearly as a member of our affiliate program. At no time can you infer any other type of relationship other than that you are participating in the VIPSEATS Affiliate Network program. Acceptance in our affiliate program is not an endorsement of your product or web site.

Does VIPSEATS.com offer the ability to co-brand?

Yes, we can offer co-branding to large marketing partners. If you are interested in co-branding the VIPSEATS.COM website please send an email message to affiliates@VIPSEATS.COM and let us know why you are requesting the co-brand along with how many visitors your site receives. We will then evaluate the opportunity. We wish we could provide this customization for everyone but right now we do not have the ability to do so.

Does VIPSEATS.com have data feed or plug-in capabilities?

Yes, VIPSEATS.COM has the ability to offer affiliates both data feeds and a plug-in. We offer Web Services or XML feeds. VIPSEATS also offers quick and easy to use plug-ins, allowing you to private label. If you are interested in or have questions about data feed or plug-ins send an email to affiliates@VIPSEATS.COM.
