You will see a list of linking options you can use. Find the right link you want to use. Below each graphic banner, search box or text link includes the linking code you need to use on your web site.

Can I use CallingCards.com name and logo on my site?
Yes. Users want to know they are buying from a company they can trust. But please do not alter our logo in any way.
Can I include specific information about your cards on my site, such as cover images and prices?
We encourage you to include information such as card name, country the card is best used to, card info, instructions, and card image. However, please do not list the price or minutes, as they change frequently in our database without notice, and customers may be confused if they see one price on your site and another price on ours. To be safe, it's best to avoid putting prices or minutes on your site. If you want to include prices and minutes, frequently check what the rates are on our web site and update your web site accordingly. It is your responsibility to provide the customer with the most updated figures.
Can I use your search engine?
Yes! In fact, our experience has shown that using our search engine is the easiest and most effective way to sell calling cards from Affiliate sites. You don't need to worry about changing prices or minutes, because the customer will see the latest figures. You can build our search forms right into your site, giving your visitors direct access to our extensive database so they can search for any calling card.
How much will I be paid?
We pay Affiliates 10% for the amount of the sale they generate. For example, if a customer clicks on a $20 card from your web site and decides to purchase it, we will give you 10%, or $2, for the sale.
When will I be paid?
You will be paid every month. We issue out the checks on the 7th of the month. If your referral fee for any quarter is less than $50, the total amount will be carried to the next month. Once it passes $50, a check for the revenue you've generated will be sent to you on the 7th of each month for the complete amount owed to you.
Can I take the order on my Web site and just send the customer and order information to CallingCards?
No. A lot of the content users see, including card prices and minutes, come straight from our database. At the current time, we are not allowing any direct integration with our backend.
How are orders tracked and credited to my site?
All links from your site to CallingCards.com contain your site's unique Affiliate ID so that every time a user comes to us via your site, we know to credit you when a purchase is made. Make sure that all links on your site are created using the Linking Tools, so that they are tracked correctly.
I have more than one Web site. Can I get multiple tracking ID's?
You do not need to submit URLs (or pages) within the same site or domain. If you do not want separate reports for separate sites, you can use the same code on all sites. You can create sub accounts to track different web sites, banners anywhere on whatever web site you have. This enables you to see the performance of a particular banner or site.
How can I track the performance of the same banner in different locations?
You can track individual banner's statistics (sales, clicks, etc.) by using sub ID numbers. You simply assign a unique sub ID number to any banner, text link or search box. For example, all you have to do is add "&subid=X", where X is a unique number you assign. You can use a sub ID to track a particular banner, web page, group of banners, a whole web site if you have multiple web sites. It's up to you how you want to use the sub ID's. You have the control to manage the performance of your links and know the result each link.
