FAQ

What is the Autodesk Affiliate Program?

The Autodesk Affiliate Program allows you to earn money by placing links to our products on your website. Visitors can purchase our products in our online store through these links. When a customer purchases a product using a link on your website, we pay you a commission for the sale.

How do I join the Autodesk Affiliate Program?

Does it cost me anything to become an Autodesk Affiliate?

Applying and joining the Autodesk Affiliate Program is free and there is no minimum sale requirement.

What is Commission Junction?

Commission Junction is one of the top affiliate advertiser networks worldwide. The company manages tracking, reporting and commission payout for our affiliates.

Can I place Autodesk links or banners anywhere on my site?

Yes. You know your customers, their needs and behavior better than we do. You have the flexibility to place the Autodesk links anywhere on your site and blogs once your application has been approved. Optimal placement is crucial to help you maximize click-through rates and sales resulting in more referral fees to you. Keep in mind that you may only use text links, logos, banners, and product images provided to you through Commission Junction.

How often will new banners become available?

We offer a selection of standard and promotional banners that feature current offers for most of our software products that are sold through our eStore. Promotional banners update automatically; you just copy and paste the code from Commission Junction. We can also create custom banners upon request.

I have more than one website and some are outside the United States. Am I still eligible for the Affiliate Program?

Yes. We accept and review applications from many countries and you can have more than one website to promote our products. To streamline the process, you get one affiliate account with all your sites.

I don't have a website or blog. Can I still apply to the Affiliate Program?

No. To become a member of the Affiliate Program, you must have a website or blog that we can review.

What Autodesk products can affiliates sell?

Affiliates can sell Autodesk's AutoCAD products, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD LT, Inventor, 3ds Max and Maya, Sketchbook, Showcase, Mudbox, Autodesk Design Suite; and more.

Do I earn commission on the tax and shipping costs of a product?

No. You only earn commission on the net price of the product after discounts are applied and not on the tax and shipping cost.

Whom should I contact if I have questions about the program?
