Frequently Asked Questions

How does the TSR Affiliation Program work?
When you write a blog, post an image or story on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter (or anywhere else appropriate) with a link back to TheSewingRevival's website (we give you a special link), and if the person who clicked the link ("the referred customer") eventually makes a purchase, then you receive commission as a % of the $value of that purchase which will be paid to you (via your PayPal account). The commission rate is currently 20%.

How does TSR (and I) keep track of referrals than turn into purchases?
The software we use tracks the unique code we give you, all the way through the purchasing process and records the sale (and your commission) automatically. You can login any time to your Affiliate account with us to check your details and referral sales. We provide you with login details once your request for registration is accepted.

Can anyone become an Affiliate? 
As long as you share a passion for sewing and our values of authenticity, creativity and diversity (a celebration of personal style).

When and How will I get paid?
We pay out using PayPal. So please use your Paypal email address at sign up. Or you will need to add that email address to your PayPal account. 
You get paid the first week of every month for commission on the prior months referred sales.  For example, sales that result in referrals you have made in January, will be paid in the first month of February. 

Will the commission always be calculated at 20%?
Not necessarily. We reserve the right to increase or decrease our commissions on certain promotions or products. You will always be informed if the rate of commission changes and you always have a choice on whether you participate in a product promotion or not.
