How much will I earn as an affiliate?

The amount you earn is up to you. We have affiliates earn over $75,000 per year. Sites with increased exposure and higher traffic often earn more, but multiple TicketCity.com links, relevant RSS feeds and XML integration also help increase the sales conversion rate from affiliate sites.

How does the 30-day cookie window work?

Many times a visitor may click thru from your site to TicketCity.com, but does not purchase immediately in the same browser session. However, if that visitor comes back to TicketCity.com within 30 days and makes a purchase, you will still receive credit for that purchase via a tracking cookie that expires after 30 days.

I already have other ticket brokers on my site; can I add Ticket City as well?

Exclusivity is not a requirement of the TicketCity Affiliate Program. You can have other ticket brokers on your site. However, the most successful sites in our affiliate program promote TicketCity.com exclusively on their site or a particular section of their site.

Do you offer XML Web Services?

May I use TicketCity content other than that provided via the RSS feeds or XML Web Services?

Affiliates may not copy any content from TicketCity.com. This includes event, performer, and venue descriptions, as well as blog posts, testimonials, or other miscellaneous materials and images. We recommend you take the time to create unique descriptive content for your site as it will provide more value to your site.

How do I track my click-thru statistics and sales?

Your click-thru and sales data is available online at the bottom of your account information. Click-thru reporting is live and automated; it does not need to be approved before it is displayed. Sales are first confirmed and approved by a TicketCity Affiliate Manager. Therefore, sales reporting may be delayed by one business day.

How do I add a domain?

Email Affiliate@TicketCity.com to add an additional domain. Please also provide your affiliate name and existing domain.

My website is a niche topic; can I specify what events are displayed on my website?

Yes, you have control to link to content that is most relevant to your site. In fact, this is recommended not only to provide the best value to your site visitors, but also to bring you improved sales conversion rates and increased earnings. So if your site is soccer-related, you probably shouldn’t link to basketball, concerts or auto racing unless it makes sense within the context of your site.

Do I control the exposure on my site?

Yes, you control how much or how little you promote TicketCity.com on your site. In fact, much of the success of our affiliates can be attributed to identifying the optimal level of links to place on their site without under- or over-promoting TicketCity.com.

The banners you offer are not pertinent to my site; can I have a customized, more specific banner?

Absolutely, we can assist with any creative needs you may have to help improve the effectiveness of the TicketCity Affiliate Program on your site. Just email us at Affiliate@TicketCity.com with the dimension, as well as the content you’d like to include in the banner. Please allow several business days for us to create and deliver creative.

Can I increase my percentage earnings rate?

If your site provides substantial volume in traffic and sales, we may consider increasing your earning rate.

What if I want to quit the Affiliate Program any time?

You can choose to discontinue the TicketCity Affiliate Program at any point in time. If you wish to discontinue the program, we simply ask that you let us know the reason why. We strive to resolve any issues or concerns to make the affiliate program beneficial to all of our partners. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at Affiliate@TicketCity.com.
