Now you can support gentle parenting and natural family values and earn money while you do. The great news is that is easy and completely risk free!

When you join Twinkle Little Star's Associate Program, you will earn 8% of all sales (excluding clearance and sale items) that you refer to us from a unique user link that we will assign to you. There are several ways for you to do this, and we will do our best to help you through every step!

How do I generate sales?

The simplest way to generate sales is to include a brief text message and link in your signature on your e-mails to your mailing lists and personal correspondence. When people follow this link and buy from TwinkleLittleStar.com you will receive 8% of all the sales that are generated from your link. This option only applies to personal e-mails. TwinkleLittleStar.com does not in any way support unsolicited mass marketing (SPAM) e-mails and will not condone the use of our associate program for this purpose. We're not big fans of SPAM in our own mail boxes and in no way wish to contribute to the junk mail in anybody else's! We're sure you will understand. :)

The next option is great for those of you who already have a web site. Our affiliate program will especially benefit you if you have a web site with a parenting, pregnancy, breastfeeding, birth, or natural living theme. Becoming an affiliate of TwinkleLittleStar.com will provide a great option for your viewers and will help to add related content to your site. We will provide several banner and buttons for you to choose from which you can link to us with your specially encoded link.

The last option is for you to link directly to specific products in our store. You can select specific products that you wish to feature and set up your own mini-shop on your web site. This is particularly useful if you have a site with related content. For example if you have an article on nursing discreetly in public, you can set up a link that will lead specifically to our nursing dresses. We will supply you with the images that you need and the specific links to set up this option. You will earn 8% of all the sales that are generated by your mini-shop without having to have the risks of keeping items in stock, and the hassle of fulfilling orders. What could be easier?

How do I know if I have made a sale?

You will be notified by e-mail automatically by our associate program immediately when a sale is generated by your unique link. The e-mail will notify you that a sale has been made and the amount of the sale. This is not a final sale. Payment must be received in full, the order has to be shipped and received by the customer, and the customer must not return the merchandise in order for the sale to be finalised and for you to earn your commission. Because we allow 30 days for returns, sales are never final until 44 days after the order has been made.

What if the customer does not make a purchase when they first visit your site?

We will track your customer for up to 7 days on our site for you, so even if the do not make a purchase the first time they click on the link, if they come back within a week you still earn your commission!

How much money can I make?

That is entirely up to you. If you actively promote the program, you will find that there is no limit to the amount of money that you can earn. The more traffic that your web site sees, the higher you can expect your earnings to be. If you participate in a large number of mailing lists on a regular basis, or distribute an e-zine, you can also expect to yield high results. Whoever thought that you could earn money just writing to your pals on mailing lists? Now you have an excuse to spend all that time typing e-mails! :)

How do I get paid?

We pay our assoociates on a bi-monthly schedule, so every two months you will receive payment for sales generated through your special links. You can choose to have payments sent to you either by check or if you have a PayPal account, we can direct the money there.

You also have the option of using your comissions as layaway towards a purchase at TwinkleLittleStar.com. It is entirely up to you.
