Earn commissions for customers you refer to Xero Shoes
We’re currently using 2 different affiliate programs, one that we manage, and one from Avantlink.
While you can use either, the biggest advantage of using ours is that you get LIFETIME commissions — once you refer a customer to us, you’ll get commissions on all their future orders, not just the first. There are other reasons as well.

The Xero Shoes Affiliate Program
Now you can be rewarded for telling people about Xero Shoes.
When someone you refer to our website purchases any product, you’ll earn a 10% commission. And if they ever come back and order again (and a LOT of our customers are repeat buyers), you’ll continue to earn a commission for the life of that customer.
How does it work?
- You become an Affiliate and we give you a special Affiliate URL (like: www.XeroShoes.com/go/YourName) that you can tell people about, as well as ads you can place on websites (yours, if you have one, or other people’s if you don’t).
- A visitor goes to your Affiliate URL or clicks on an ad that directs them to that URL.
- The visitor comes to our site, and a “cookie” is placed in their browser and we record their computer’s IP address for tracking purposes. This way we know that you are the person who referred them to us.
- If the visitor orders, you’ll be credited with a 10% commission on that sale (there are a few more details about how this works in the Terms & Conditions section of the Affiliate Sign Up form)
- You will receive commission payouts on the 5th of every month (if your balance is at least $20) via PayPal (again, there are a few specifics about timing in the T&C section).
Rules and Requirements
We do have some basic ground rules for the program, so please read before signing up:
- All participants must have a PayPal account (in order to receive payouts).
- All participants in the US must enter a US Social Security or Taxpayer ID number. International Affiliates do not need this.
- You may NOT receive credit for referring yourself.
- You may not promote our program via spam of any sort, or on adult or hate sites.
Participants caught violating or attempting to circumvent these rules will have all affiliate credit voided and will not receive payouts. Additionally, they will be banned from further participation in our affiliate program.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What do I need to become an affiliate?
Nothing! Except your desire to be an affiliate.
You don’t even need a website (although having your own website helps). You can promote our product via search engines, postings in internet forums, or simply email to all your friends and people you know with your affiliate link to our product.
All you need to do is to send a visitor to our site via a special link (called ‘affiliate link’). If you’re the referring Affiliate, and if he or she buys anything from us, you will get 10% of the sale value.
2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?
The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places cookie on his or her computer and tracks his/her computer’s IP address. When the visitor pays for the product, our affiliate system checks for the cookie (if not found, checks for their IP address) to assign you the proper credit.
This process is absolutely automatic. All your referrals will be properly tracked.
Post Affiliate Pro is used by thousands of Internet merchants and affiliates world-wide.
3. How is the payment handled?
We pay via PayPal.
There is a minimum payment value of $20. To allow a grace period for returns, commissions are credited to your account 30 days after the order, and paid on the 5th of the following month.
For example, if someone you refer to our site makes a purchase on January 20th, the commission is credited to you on February 20th, and paid on March 5th.
Payments are issued in US dollars.
“Super Affiliates” may negotiate these terms (A “super affiliate is one who generates consistent and significant commissions).
4. How do I set up an account?
Setting up an account is very easy and it’s completely FREE. You don’t have to pay for becoming an affiliate.

5. What is the affiliate link?
Affiliate link is a special URL where you should be sending the visitors. For example, www.XeroShoes.com/go/YourName).
