There’s a lot going on in the Associates Program—we’re always working to develop new features, tools, and resources to help you make the most of your affiliate marketing. If you’ve ever worried you were missing important updates, or wondered if you were checking the right spots for new opportunities, read on.

1. Are you on the list? The email list, that is.

Email is the number one place to stay informed about program developments. We’ve set up strategic email lists in relevant categories to share important news and helpful tips—and you can pick and choose the most helpful topics.
  • First things first, make sure we have your current email in your Associates Central account.
  • Visit the user management page in your Associates Central account to confirm the email address shown is correct.
  • If not, follow these steps to update:
    • Click on the top tab marked Add Users then enter your new email address.
    • Click on the Select Access Level drop-down menu and choose the desired access level.
    • Complete the captcha authentication, and hit the Submit button.
    • Before you leave make sure you log out.
Manage Users screen
  • Click on the link sent to your updated email address, follow the prompts to log into Associates Central, and confirm you see your correct, updated email on the user management page.
Now you’re automatically subscribed to the Network Updates list but you have several other options as well. Just visit the email preference center in your Associates Central account to subscribe, unsubscribe—and even resubscribe—to any and all lists to help you earn more as an associate.
