WHAT IS THE HAPPY TRUNK AFFILIATE PROGRAM AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Affiliate Program is a service that allows participating websites to earn commission on sales referred to The Happy Trunk using specially tracked links. We provide you with custom links and banners that you can post on your website. Then when a visitor you've referred to us makes a purchase, we'll keep track and give you a commission on the sale.
IS MY WEBSITE ELIGIBLE FOR THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM?
We accept almost all types of websites that are relevant to our products and do not contain objectionable or offensive materials. We welcome all applications but reserve the right to refuse membership or revoke a membership at any time and for any reason at our sole discretion.
ARE THERE ANY FEES?
No. There are no fees associated with The Happy Trunk affiliate program. It is completely free to participate.
I DON'T HAVE A WEBSITE FOR MY BUSINESS, I DON'T WANT TO PUT BANNERS ON MY WEBSITE AND/OR I PLACE ORDERS ON BEHALF OF MY CLIENTS. CAN I STILL BE AN AFFILIATE FOR THE HAPPY TRUNK?
Yes, it just takes some extra effort. The Happy Trunk has text links that can be taken from the ShareASale website in the "Get Links" section. Whenever you get an order from a customer that you would like to fulfill with The Happy Trunk products, copy that text link into your browser and press enter. This will take you to The Happy Trunk website through ShareASale's routing system and you'll get credit for the sale.
WILL YOU PROVIDE EXTRA SUPPORT FOR HIGH-TRAFFIC WEBSITES?
CAN I USE IMAGES FROM THE HAPPY TRUNK ON MY WEBSITES?
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY APPLICATION HAS BEEN RECEIVED OR IF I HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM?
If your application has been submitted correctly, you should receive a confirmation email from ShareASale. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder. Otherwise, you might not have finished the process correctly and you should resubmit your application. Once approved, you will receive a welcome email from our Affiliate Manager.
HOW DO I CREATE LINKS TO THE HAPPY TRUNK?
When you add a banner or link to your website, it will be tagged with your unique ShareASale affiliate ID. The easiest way to create links is to visit The Happy Trunk ShareASale Affiliate Page once you've been approved. There, you can browse through the different categories of text and banner links, or make a custom link to any page on the website. To create a banner link, please log in to ShareASale's affiliate gateway and navigate to the "Get Links" area. Next, click on "Get a Link/Banner," find The Happy Trunk and click "Get Links" below our company name. When you add that text link, banner or product to your website, it will be tagged with your unique ShareASale affiliate ID.
HOW DOES THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM KNOW WHEN I SHOULD RECEIVE CREDIT FOR AN ORDER?
ShareASale tracks a cookie that is automatically applied to the computer of a person who clicks on a banner or text link that has your ShareASale affiliate ID number embedded within it. Each banner or link that you create is specifically tagged with your ShareASale affiliate ID, letting us know that you earned commissions on the sales you send our way. You can access all of these banners and links by logging in to your ShareASale Account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available. These links can be used from any website, put directly into a browser or emailed out in the case of text links. You can test a link by copying and pasting it into your browser. If you are directed to The Happy Trunk website, the link is working. Do not copy and paste a landing page url from our website and confuse it for an affiliate link, since it will not track properly. All affiliate links begin with "http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfmB="
WHEN AND HOW DO I GET PAID?
ShareASale will pay your monthly commission by either check or direct deposit around the 22nd of the following month. Your account needs to have a balance of $50 or more before the end of the month in order to receive a payment. Otherwise, it will continue to roll forward into the next month until the $50 minimum is reached and we can issue a payment.
WHAT SALES AND REVENUE REPORTS DOES SHAREASALE PROVIDE?
Each transaction is logged on ShareASale servers and is available for review in detail. ShareASale will provide real-time tracking of your clicks, sales and commission. Please do not contact The Happy Trunk for this information, since we cannot access your account. Use the links below to find some of the most useful reports, but please note that these links will only work if you are an approved affiliate.

WHAT IF I FORGOT MY SHAREASALE ACCOUNT PASSWORD?
If you've forgotten your ShareASale password, please use ShareASale's password recovery to have your password sent to your email address. Because your ShareASale account is private, we do not have control over or access to this information. If you have any other issues with your ShareASale account, please contact the ShareASale support team.
If a visitor comes to our websites from your website but does not purchase on that visit, you can still earn commission on sales from that customer if they return and make a purchase within 90 days. This works even if they navigate directly to the website on a return visit as long as they haven't deleted their cookies.
