What is The Linux Foundation Affiliate Program?
The Linux Foundation Affiliate program is our way of sharing with the sites and individuals who promote our products. All you have to do is place a text link or banner on your site and when a customer clicks through and makes a purchase, you get a commission. We offer free tracking tools, notification of specials/sales, free coupons and more for our affiliates.
Our commission rate is 20% (5% for coupon only sites) with a cookie duration of 60 days! That means, you get a commission on any purchase made within those 60 days from that same customer, even if that customer goes directly to our site! The cookie will still track that customer and credit you the sale! It’s that simple.
We take care of the tracking portion of our affiliate program through our third-party online networks Shareasale. The network tracks sales, earnings and commissions and gives affiliates access to our banners and text links.
