GENERAL

What is the Brandcaster® program?

The Brandcaster program is a free publisher program that allows you to earn money for promoting great offers from brands your audience loves.  We’ll help you provide a rich couponing experience for your visitors with a coupon gallery, widgets and links on your site. We provided some short answers to questions you may have about the Brandcaster program below, but for a complete understanding of the terms and conditions of the program, please refer to the Brandcaster Program Agreement.

Why should I join?

The Brandcaster program can help you earn money and boost site visits with popular coupons and offers from top brands. New offers are continually being added to the Brandcaster program, allowing you to receive fresh content regularly and helping you better engage with visitors.

How do I apply and get started?

All you need is a U.S.-based website and a U.S. address. Here are the steps to get started:

  • Create a Brandcaster account and agree to the Brandcaster program Agreement.
  • Log in and create a campaign: Savings Center, widget or link.
  • Implement the campaign on your site. Campaigns will be active when your website is approved in 1-3 business days.
  • Start earning money.

Can I sign up to be a Brandcaster publisher if I am based outside the U.S.?

In order to issue payment, we need your U.S. tax identification information and a U.S. mailing address. Individuals and businesses must be based in the U.S. in order to qualify for the Brandcaster program. The Brandcaster coupons and offers are available only for the U.S. audience.

Does my website have to be live?

The sites associated with your account must be active and accessible to the public in order to get approved.

Can I promote coupons on other places besides my website?

You can link to coupons and share on social media networks or your newsletters to increase your reach.

PRODUCT

What is a Savings Center?

The Brandcaster Savings Center is a customizable, full-page coupon gallery that provides a complete couponing experience right on your site. You can tailor the look and feel of the Savings Center to match your site. The Savings Center is implemented with a simple block of JavaScript code that we provide.

What is a widget?

Widgets are interactive banners featuring high-performing coupon categories from popular and trusted brands. We optimize the content in the widgets and display offers that drive users to print. Brandcaster widgets are available in a variety of industry-standard banner sizes and color displays that you can easily customize to match your site. Widgets are implemented with a simple block of JavaScript code that we provide.

How do I use links?

You can use clickable links in your emails, social media pages, website or blogs. Link to Card Linked Offers, as well as to specific coupons within your Brandcaster Savings Center.
Coupon links can be created easily within the Brandcaster account. A coupon link campaign allows you to link directly to specific coupons. Linking to specific coupons from your site can be a powerful way to drive more coupon prints from your users.

What are Card Linked Offers?

Card Linked Offers are in-store offers that your users can add directly to their credit or debit card. Upon making a qualifying purchase using their registered card thus redeeming the offer, your user will receive a reward while you earn a commission. By promoting offers for in-store purchases (which is where most consumer spending occurs), you will give your users a new way to save without having to print.

 

PAYMENT

How do I earn money?

The commission you earn depends on the offer type. For example:

  • Grocery, personal care & household coupons: Commission is paid on qualifying coupon transactions within the Savings Center, such as the User initiated action of printing a coupon.
  • Card Linked Offers: Commission will vary according to each Card Linked Offer. You can find that information listed in the Brandcaster portal for each offer before you choose to promote them.
  • Display Ads: Commission is paid on ad impressions.
  • Coupon Codes: We provide compelling coupon code offers that users will appreciate. They can easily be integrated into your Savings Center gallery. However, no commission will be paid on coupon codes transactions at this time.

Will I get paid if I only have widgets but not a Savings Center gallery?

Yes, you will get paid for those qualifying transactions as you do with a Savings Center gallery.

What payment methods does the Brandcaster program offer?

The Brandcaster program offers direct deposit or check as payment methods.

What type of reporting is available?
