Backpacking Light Affiliate Program Information
Backpacking Light works with a very small group of "involved affiliates" who share our values. Outdoor educators, guides, outfitters, content creators, publishers, and customers/members who have first-hand experience with our products, programs, and services are welcome to apply. This program is not open to the general public, and we do not work with unattached affiliate marketers, social media influencers, or coupon sites. If you would like to apply, please click the Signup button and complete the form. We'll follow up (generally via email) with any further questions as needed.
Affiliate Commissions & Terms
Affiliate commissions are available for online courses, events, guided treks, and memberships. You will be supplied with unique affiliate links and/or banner images. In addition, we can provide you with custom coupon codes that you may use to earn commissions for offline marketing, in-person clinics, podcasts, etc. Commissions are attributed for last visit-before-purchase-referrals with a 30-day attribution window and are tracked using referral links, cookies, and IP address verification (backup). Referral commissions start at 20%. Payment is made monthly via PayPal for commissions earned the previous month. Commission reversals are made when customers request and are given full refunds.
Real-Time Statistics and Reporting
Affiliates can access a real-time dashboard to monitor sales, traffic, account balance, banner/link performance, and more.
