Does the ShareASale application process take long?

Nope! Once you complete the application (which takes minutes) to become an affiliate through ShareASale, you can expect to receive your approval status in 1-3 days.

How long am I able to receive commission on a particular blog post written about Hatchery?

The perks of becoming an Tastemaker through ShareASale is that you can continue to earn commission from a post as long as the post, links, and banners live within your blog. (Could be 5 days, 5 weeks, or 5 years!)

What happens if someone visits my blog, but doesn’t make a purchase on the Hatchery website for a few days/weeks? Will I still receive a commission?

The affiliate links created in ShareASale and hyperlinked into your blog post includes a tracking cookie, which has a 45-day lifetime. As long as the reader purchases within that time frame, you’ll receive a commision, even in the case they return directly to hatchery.co and do not access the site through your blog/website.

Does Hatchery provide promotional codes for readers to use at checkout?

We do! We love offering deals to your dedicated followers.  Hatchery provides Tastemakers unique discount codes to share with their community to use at checkout on hatchery.co.

When and how do I get paid?

ShareASale offers options to receive payments via direct deposit or by check—so that’s up to you! You’ll receive payment on the 20th of each month for the previous month’s commissions if you have a minimum balance of $50 (i.e. you would receive May’s commissions on June 20th). Still curious about payment? Feel free to contact our Community Manager, Jackie (jackie@hatchery.co) directly!

Is there an opportunity to receive more than $10 per subscriber conversion?

Yep! Our Tastemaker program works through performance-based incentives. Our top-performing Tastemakers are eligible to receive higher commissions, so the more Hatchery love you spread, the more you’ll get!

What are some tips and tricks for selling the Tasting Box?

  1. Discovery: The Tasting Box program provides subscribers with five brand new, unique ingredients to incorporate into their meals each month. It’s not so much about creating new recipes around them as it is about simply introducing new flavors to whatever you’re already cooking in the kitchen.

  2. Guidance: The Hatchery Tasting Box is for everyone—not just the crazy creative cook or the new gal in the kitchen—so we provide members with as many resources as we possibly can, whether it’s through recipes, suggested pairings, and kitchen tricks to make cooking as easy as possible.

  3. Supporting real people: These aren’t faceless corporations, and they’re not slapping “artisanal” onto their packaging to hop on the hype’s coattails. These are real people with real passion, and that’s what the Tasting Box program supports.

  4. Free shipping: For any orders that include products from that month’s Tasting Box, members receive free shipping.

  5. Community: It’s not just about what Hatchery and their makers have to say, it’s about creating a community of individuals who can communicate via social media to learn new ingredient applications, give tips, and generally support one another.
