Are you passionate about board games? Do you have an existing audience or network of game enthusiasts? We would love to partner with you to reach as many readers as we can! The Casual Game Revolution Affiliate Program allows you to earn commissions on each magazine subscription or individual issue purchased on our website.
There are two types of commission payouts:
- Cash – earn 20% commission on each sale, paid monthly to your PayPal account of choice.
- Ad Credit (for publishers/advertisers only) – earn 100% commission on each sale as credit to be deducted from your next ad or sponsorship purchase.
Our cookie length is 30 days, meaning that a user can return within 30 days to make a purchase and your account will still be credited.
How Do I Earn Commission?
Once you have affiliate privileges, earning commission is easy. All you have to do is display our pre-made banners or links on your website, social media, comments, newsletters, videos, forum posts, or even in the email signatures you use every day. If a user clicks on your link and makes a purchase within 30 days, your account will be credited.
You will find banners, links, and reports in our Affiliate Center, which you can find on your user account page. Click the Affiliate Center tab to view all of the banners and options available to you. If you need custom banners or have any other questions, please contact us.
In addition to our pre-made banners and links, you can also create your own affiliate link to any page on the site by adding to the URL "?a=N" (where N is your affiliate ID). For instance, if you wanted to link to the latest magazine issue, you would use http://casualgamerevolution.com/magazine/latest-issue?a=N (replacing N with your own ID). This ID is displayed in the Affiliate Center.

Other Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What does it cost to join the affiliate program?
Joining is completely free!
When and how do I get paid?
We pay out commissions prior to the 15th day of the month for the previous month's sales. Cash affiliates are paid via PayPal to the account submitted during sign-up. Credit affiliates receive a deduction on future ad or sponsorship purchases equal to the amount of commission earned.
What can I earn commission on?
Purchases made directly on our website are eligible, including print or PDF subscriptions, magazine issues, or merchandise. Any purchase placed on a 3rd party marketplace or platform, such as a mobile app store or crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter, is not eligible for commission.
What if a customer doesn't purchase right away?
If a customer returns within 30 days to make a purchase on the Casual Game Revolution website, you will still earn a commission.
What if an order is canceled?
If an order is canceled for any reason, the earned commission will not be paid. If it has already been paid, it will be debited from future earnings.
What if I need a custom banner?
Please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
What can I do with affiliate links and banners?
You can display them on your website, social media, comments, newsletters, videos, email signatures, forums, printed materials, or other public area. You may shorten URLs using a link shortening service or redirected URL alias to make it easier to display on your website or mention on your podcast or video.
What can't I do with affiliate links and banners?
You may not use them in paid advertising campaigns (such as Google Adsense); on sites or materials that are sexually explicit, obscene, defamatory, or promote violence, discrimination, or illegal activities; sites or materials that infringe on intellectual property rights; sites that install or run any type of malware, including software intended to enable diversions of commission; sites that are designed or intended to mislead customers in any way.
Can I earn commission on advertisement or sponsorship sales?
Only official sales representatives can earn commission on ad and sponsorship sales. If you are a well-connected and influential individual within the board game or toy industry, please contact us for more information on how to become a sales representative.
