What is the petsmart.com Affiliate Program and how does it work?
The petsmart.com Affiliate Program is an online revenue partnership between you and petsmart.com. You generate revenue through commissions earned on all sales made through a petsmart.com link on your site. We provide banners and logos to place on your site which link to petsmart.com. When a visitor from your site clicks through to petsmart.com, we track the customer's purchase and pay you a commission on every sale. The customer's order carries a special tracking code letting us know they clicked through a link on your site and made a purchase at petsmart.com. We record every sale and the date the purchases were made. Our commission rate is based on a tiered structure.
