Announcing our Affiliate Program - Make more money with Pixoto

  • Updated 7 years ago
At Pixoto we’d rather pay our members than spend it on advertising, so we are excited to announce our new affiliate program! Nothing complicated here. You are already a member.

Send out a referral link and you will earn 20% of every dollar your friends spend on Stock and PRO subscriptions and 10% of Canvas Print purchases. This can add up to a lot of money! Especially if you know a lot of professional photographers, web designers or marketing professionals. YOU and your friend will also receive 250 Pixoto credits when they upload their first image.

Here are some examples of the amount you can earn from JUST ONE referral:

- A professional photographer friend buys 2 canvases a month: $132.00
- A web designer signs-up for a 100 image stock subscription for a year: $117.60
- An amateur photographer friend signs up for a year of Pixoto PRO: $14.28
- An interior designer friend resells Pixoto canvases to her clients: $150 or more

Here’s how it works:

You distribute referral links to pages on Pixoto with your unique tracking code (your username). If someone clicks on your link and then signs-up for Pixoto you will receive:
- 20% of every dollar spent on PRO and stock subscriptions by the referral for the first year
- 10% of every canvas order (retail or wholesale) made by the referral for the first year

Commissions will be added to your Pixoto account and are subject to payment terms outlined in our TOS.

Your tracking code is your username in this format: ?r=username

You can add this to any Pixoto URL by adding a “?” to the end and then the code.

Here are some examples:

- www.pixoto.com?r=username - our home page
- www.pixoto.com/stock?r=username – our stock home page
- http://www.pixoto.com/stock/search/la... – top stock photos of dogs
- www.pixoto.com/art-shop?r=username – our Art Shop
- www.pixoto.com/username?r=username – your profile page

Here’s a few marketing blurbs to help you out - just replace username with yours:

“I love Pixoto! It’s such a fun way to see what people think of my photography. Use this link to get 250 upload credits when you signup: http://www.pixoto.com/invite/r/username”

“Tons of amazing stock images are available at Pixoto Stock from just $0.33 each. www.pixoto.com/stock?r=username. Every image is ranked by real people and the best images appear on the top of every search. Totally innovative!”

“Need some art for your walls? Pixoto has over 2 million photos on canvas available at www.pixoto.com/art-shop?r=username from just $22 delivered. Search for anything and the best images come up first.”

Let us know what you think!

Looks promising ... great to have that app ... something of topic, for better final result of all components on Pixoto ... I think you should also do something about searcher (because not everybody is posting tags, and even if they do) it is sometime hard to find what you are looking for (this is basic for stock photography or better selling / not just going through the top photos / a lot of great images are stuck between 500 and 600 points or less ... ) ... anyway, as I said before, looks promising, and everything like this is welcome ...

Perhaps sugestion (of topic) ... did you considered making mix gallery "Editor choice" (don't have to be awarded images) ...

I am trying to use the affiliate code for individual canvas/stock photos. Can I use it in this way-
http://www.pixoto.com/canvas/pixotoph...

It is working. I can view the page but will this also work for the affiliate program. I read above that the ?r=username would work for any pixoto url. So that means it will also work for
http://www.pixoto.com/canvas/pixotoph...
The same would be true for stock images too I guess.

Just wanted to make sure that I am doing it correctly.

Nain, if you link people to Pixoto, and they buy Stock images or canvas, you can earn 20% of the amount they spend. You have to use the special link format.

When I put the profile link on Facebook, and then tested it, it does not take you to my profile page. It says "WOOPS" What gives.

Hi milkyway, I did send a note asking about clicks and impressions, but wanted to make sure you understand they actually have to purchase canvas, stock or PRO account, etc before you earn. Your earnings would show up on your account at http://www.pixoto.com/settings/earnings

Hello Gary, you can use link you got to copy and paste it on your Tweeter, FB or in e-mail.
You will always get same page since you are logged in with your account in Pixoto. You can try to log out and try to use same code and you will see different page for new user to sign up as your friend.

If this doesn't help, please let me know.
