Is my site eligible to become a HomeGrownMusic.net Affiliate?
HomeGrownMusic.net wants to work with all sites, from large commercial sites to individual web pages, and everything in between. Anyone may submit an application, and we review each and every potential Affiliate web site before accepting it. We do reserve the right to refuse a site if it contains objectionable material, including pornography, explicit language or content, support for violent groups or other content that we don't want to be associated with.
What does it cost to join?
Nothing! It's absolutely free to join the HomeGrownMusic.net Affiliate Network. You are also free to cancel at any time.
Can a web site based outside the United States be a HomeGrownMusic.net Affiliate?
Yes. HomeGrownMusic.net has served customers all over the world, and we welcome Affiliate sites from anywhere. Customers buy from our site in U.S. dollars. All commission payment checks to Affiliates are denominated in U.S. dollars.
Can I link my site to HomeGrownMusic.net and to other online music sellers at the same time?
It's not recommended. It's better to send customers to one online music store at a time. It's easier for you and for your visitors.

(You may, of course, link to other online merchants who sell products that we don't, including items that we don't sell).

Can I include specific information about your products on my site, such as cover images and price?
We encourage you to include information such as title, artist, even cover images. Please don't list the price, however.

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 CDs from Affiliate sites. You can build our search forms right into your site, giving your visitors the power to search our site for any music we offer. You can search by keyword across our entire database. Instructions for setting up the search engine can be found here.
How are orders tracked and credited to my site?

When will I be paid?
You will be paid quarterly (every three months). If your commission for any quarter is less than $25, the total amount will be carried to the next quarter. Once it passes $25, a check will be sent to you at the end of the quarter for the complete amount owed to you up until the end of that quarter.
