Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?
1. Read the program description

2. Sign up. Fill out a brief online registration form. You'll immediately gain access to your secure login area which provides you with a quick and easy way to begin earning money referring your visitors to Three.

3. Start earning referral fees. You'll automatically be eligible to earn commissions for sales generated by your links once your site is approved. You'll always have access to your earnings and traffic reports through your own login area. The reports will show you what your visitors are buying, how much they are buying, and what your earnings are for those purchases. With that information, you can optimize your site and make the most of your relationship with Three. Referral fees are paid on the 25th of each month. Typically 50% of activity is paid on the 25th following activity, and the other 50% is delayed by a month.
When will I get paid?
Referral fees are sent in the first week of each month for all confirmed orders from the month prior to the month that has ended. Late confirmations from the month before will also get paid, for example:

o Payment in the first week of June will include payment for all confirmed orders in April+ any orders from March that were confirmed after the payment script was run.

*Payment sent electronically in the first week of each month and can take up to 3 working days to arrive in your bank account.

Can I participate if I live outside the United Kingdom? Does my website qualify?
Yes, you may participate in the Three Affiliate Program if you live outside the United Kingdom. We have Affiliates from all over the world and are working hard to add even more. All you need to join is a Web site that does not violate intellectual property rights or promote sexually explicit materials, gambling, violence, illegal activities, or discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
I have more than one Web site. Can I link to Three from each site?
Yes, you may participate in the Affiliate Program through multiple Web sites. If you want to track the performance of each Web site separately, check our link building page. You can then use a tracking ID to measure the performance of a different site, promotional strategy, or layout.
Can a nonprofit join the Affiliate program?
Yes, we encourage nonprofits to join our program.
How does Three track sales coming from my Web site?
An Affiliate ID is assigned when you sign up through our online form. Links from Affiliate Web sites to Three use a special format that includes this code. Every time a customer follows one of those links to our site, this unique URL tells us which page to display as well as which Affiliate sent the customer to us. We keep track of all the Affiliates’ ID’s as the customer browses through our Web site, and even if they close their browser and come back up to 45 days later.
