Make Money with Apple’s Affiliate Program

Apple have made a lot of money from you in the form of new versions of iDevices, upgrades, music, eBooks and apps from the store. Now it’s your turn to take the favor back.

Apple allows developers and marketers to promote their products and apps in the store and pay commissions for the conversions they bring complying with their guidelines.

Why Apple affiliates?

As you know, there are many Apple freaks in the world who can afford to buy apple products at any cost. Those who bought Apple devices, would not hesitate to buy music, apps, software and eBooks from iTunes, App Store, iBooks and the Mac App Store.

So the probability of buying or not buying from the Apple store is more compared to any other stores like Google Play.

  4. It took an hour for me to get the approval email and it may take more or less time for you than that. So, wait till you get the confirmation email. Once you got the confirmation email, you can start referring the apple store products and start earning from it.

Generating reports

It is good to keep track of the reports to know what your site visitors like to download the most from Apple stores. It helps you later in improvising your marketing strategies as well.

Setting payment options

Set your payment options from Settings > Payments. Once you reach the threshold, you can get paid by generating a self-bill invoice for all approved sales.

There is no minimum threshold set by Apple. So you can set your own by entering the value in the minimum payment threshold field.

You can also choose to create the self-bill invoices automatically on a particular date on a month or when threshold meets.

Also, you can generate multiple payment methods as per your comfort.


Navigate through the dashboard before you just start earning from the Apple store. It will make you understand more about the affiliate program.

Wish you all the best! Don’t forget to share your happiness when you with us when you get your first payment. Apple rocks!
