Walmart Affiliate Program – How to Get Started

Walmart Affiliate (final)

In this post, you're going to learn how to sign up for the Walmart affiliate program.

Most people didn't even know that Walmart had an affiliate program. When people think of affiliate marketing, they mostly think of Amazon associates. However, there is a Walmart affiliate program that you can sign up for as an influencer.

To sign up for the Walmart affiliate program, you're just go to and then click the “Become a member” button.

On the next page, you're going to fill out all of your company information. You're going to need a social security number or EIN tax number and your account information. Fill out your website information. If you don't have a website, I've got other articles on this site that will help you get started with a blog or website so that you can start making money from affiliate marketing.

Towards the bottom, you've got the payment threshold which is set up at 50 dollars but you can change that to a hundred dollars or whatever the amount is. That would be the amount that you get paid for once you reach that threshold.

When you're finished, it's simply scrolling down, agreeing to the terms and conditions and clicking “Sign me up”!

Let's talk really quickly about some frequently asked questions with the Walmart affiliate program.

Walmart Affiliate Program FAQ

Walmart uses Link Share which Nordstrom and a few big affiliate programs also use. They reserve the right to accept or reject anyone to their affiliate programs. So, it doesn't mean that you're going to be accepted just because you applied.

How much can you earn? Affiliates can earn up to 4 percent on each eligible sale. That's similar to those some other retail commission websites but there's another link on that page that will take you to their other commission rates.

The Walmart affiliate cookie also lasts for about 3 days from what I understand. It's just a little bit longer than the 24-hour cookie for Amazon associates. That means that if someone clicks on your affiliate link, they have 3 days to come back to Walmart and make a purchase online and you will still get credit for that purchase.

Feel free to check out some of the other FAQs on the Walmart affiliate website if you have any other questions.
