1. What do I need to become an affiliate?
Nothing! Except your desire to be an affiliate.

All the affiliate needs to do is to send a visitor to our site via a special link, called 'affiliate link'. If the visitor buys from our shop, the affiliate gets a commission.

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?
Our program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro. Post Affiliate Pro uses a combination of cookies and IP addresses to track referrals for reliable reporting results. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie on their computer. When the visitor pays for the product, our affiliate system checks the cookie (if not found, checks for IP address of referral) and credits the affiliate's account with a percentage of up to 10%, based on the net purchase price.
This process is absolutely automatic. All affiliate referrals are properly tracked.

3. How is the payout handled?
Affiliate will be paid via PayPal and will be able to choose his own minimum payout amount (250 € minimum).
Payouts are issued in Euros and are paid once a month, always on the 15th.

4. How do I set up an account?
Setting up an account is very easy and it's completely FREE. You don't have to pay to become an affiliate.

All you need to do is sign up by going to the Signup Form below. Fill it out. Fanatec's affiliate manager will review your application. Upon approval, the new affiliate will receive an email with his password and login information. The approval process may take up to 24 hours, excluding weekends and holidays.

FAP affiliates have their own control panel, where they can see detailed statistics of their referred traffic and sales, news and training materials, and choose from among a variety of campaigns and banners to place on their own websites.

5. What is the 'affiliate link'?
Affiliate link is a special URL where you send your visitors to. Affiliates get the URL's for different banners in their affiliate panel after they log in.

6. What is the 'VAT ID Number'?
Should the affiliate be a company, the 'VAT ID Number' will be required for tax purposes. Provide your 'VAT ID Number' on the sign up form. In the US, this is the EIN. If you do not have a VAT ID Number, you may enter "0" into this field.

7. What is the 'Tax Number'?
The 'Tax Number' is for individuals and is used for tax purposes. Provide 'Tax Number' on the sign up form. US affiliates may leave this field blank. It is required that you provide either a VAT ID Number or TAX Number. If you do not have a Tax Number, you may enter "0" into this field. In any case, one or the other field has to contain a valid number for tax purposes.
