Affiliate FAQ

General

What is the Houzz Affiliate Program and how does it work?

The Affiliate Program is a service that allows participating websites to earn commission on sales referred to Houzz.com using specially tracked links provided via Impact Radius.

After you apply for our program via Impact Radius and are accepted as an affiliate, you may place links via banners, widgets, text links and other tools or creative on your website. When your visitors click through to the Houzz website via these links, that visitor is tracked within a 30 day cookie window until they place an order. When an order is placed by such a visitor, the order is associated with your website as the referring source and your Impact Radius affiliate account is credited a commission for the order. So the more visitors you refer and the more of those visitors who convert into Houzz customers, the more you get paid – and unlike many other websites, you get paid each time that customer places an order within 7 days of clicking on your affiliate link, not just the first time!
