Grabbing Your Affiliate Token
Once you've signed up, and been approved, simply log into the PHG dashboard and grab your "Affiliate Token" from the upper right hand corner of the dashboard.
This token is then added into the Geniuslink dashboard to enable clicks from the relevant countries to be correctly affiliated. To do this, simply log into your Geniuslink Dashboard, navigate to the Affiliate page, click the Connect an affiliate program button, then paste your PHG token into the provided space. Be sure to select PHG from the drop down list that appears, and click the Connect This Program button.
PHG supports a unique system where you can dictate when you are paid. This can be found on the "Payments" page in the PHG dashboard.
However, in order to receive payments for commissions earned through PHG you will need to first set up your banking information. This can be done by going to "Settings," clicking on "payment method," then clicking the blue "Add Payment Method" button and filling out the relevant information.
Geniuslink is in no way associated with iTunes, Apple Inc., TradeDoubler, DGM, Performance Horizon Group, or Rakuten LinkShare.
