What are the Features and Benefits of this Program?

Waterstones.com is the online platform of Waterstones, the primary high street book specialist in the UK. They assert that books are their passion, and they're experts in the area. Their online store boasts millions of titles to browse, making them an alternative online bookshop for customers. Additionally, they've got competitive prices on both classic and new books, with rolling promotions frequently available.

The customer service in-store is also available online, with free delivery on all orders with a minimum value of £25, and free delivery to any Waterstones shop location. Furthermore, affiliates of Waterstones.com can look forward to generous commissions and regular bonus incentives, with a current commission rate of 4% and a cookie duration of 30 days. However, no commission is payable on Click & Collect orders or gift cards.

Although ready-made creative materials are available, bespoke banners are available on request. Waterstones.com does not work with voucher code sites, and PPC terms forbid affiliates from bidding on brand terms, direct linking to their website, or using variants on their URL. They enforce strict compliance and will remove any affiliates who do not comply.

By promoting this affiliate program, publishers can benefit from the trusted reputation of a leading book specialist with exclusive deals and excellent customer service online.
