Best Buy does not pay commissions on gift cards, warranties, or transactions on third-party websites.
What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is an online advertising channel in which advertisers (online merchants that sell products or services) pay publishers (independent parties that promote the products or services of an advertiser on their website) only for results, such as a visitor making a purchase or filling out a form, rather than paying simply to reach a particular audience. This "pay-for-performance" model is, in essence, the modern version of the "finders'-fee" model, where individuals who introduce new clients to a business are compensated. The difference in the case of affiliate marketing is that advertisers pay their publishers only when the new client introduction results in a sale or a lead, making it a low-risk, high-reward environment for both parties.
How do I sign up?
You can sign up for the Best Buy Canada Affiliate Program through our partnership with CJ by Conversant. Their technology will allow you to track your BestBuy.ca sales and earn commissions on the BestBuy.ca purchases that you generate through your links.
How will Best Buy Canada communicate with me?
As a publisher in the Best Buy Canada Affiliate Program, you will be provided with frequent communication to ensure you are aware of our most current offers and promotions. You will receive a few different forms of communication over the duration of our relationship:
  • Your first communication will arrive from a member of our agency partner, OPMpros.com, welcoming you to our program when your application is accepted.
  • Within a few weeks of joining the program, you will receive an additional, personalized e-mail from a member of our team at OPMpros.com. This e-mail will provide you with more information to jumpstart your promotion of Best Buy Canada so you can get some helpful direction and start earning money fast. We'll provide tips, great promotions, and specific products that Best Buy Canada wants you to help promote.
  • As part of our newsletter efforts, you will receive notifications about our two-day and three-day sales as they arise, special announcements (alerts about changes to the program terms or other high-priority messages), and holiday offers and promotions.
  • In an effort to ensure that the program grows and our publishers are successful, we may contact you through OPMpros.com to build the relationship, optimize our placements, or participate in a survey or sales contest. We value our publishers and want this to be a successful partnership.
How will I find out about sales and weekly offers?
Your best bet is our weekly newsletter and e-mail communications. This newsletter will be scheduled to deploy each Thursday – before the new deals hit the site – and our publishers count on it as the primary source of offers and deals for the week. Our only request is that you wait until the start date to post these offers.
What tools will Best Buy Canada provide me with to promote the products?
As a commitment to our publishers, we have assigned more resources to making the Best Buy Canada Affiliate Program a top program in the CJ network. We have a wide variety of promotional banners and text links. If you have any thoughts or feedback on them, please share them with us.
When will I get paid?
Affiliates are paid by CJ monthly on or around the 20th of each month. Affiliates get payment if they have enough closed commissions to meet their minimum payment threshold. Best Buy Canada extends all transactions each month so you will not see your first payment until transactions close. The minimum payment threshold is $50 CAD for direct deposit and $100 CAD for paper check. To update your payment information, navigate to Account > Administrative Settings within your CJ account.
When will Best Buy Canada orders post to my publisher account?
CJ offers near-real-time reporting where publishers can view sales/orders that have been placed. Please note that monthly payments may vary from when an order is initially recorded due to cancellations, returns, and removal of fraudulent orders.
How does Best Buy Canada account for returns or cancellations?
Best Buy Canada batches in returns and cancelled orders on a daily basis the day after they are processed at Best Buy Canada. The return/cancellation rate is quite low, due to the fact that Best Buy Canada only submits shipped orders into CJ.
How does Best Buy Canada handle missing order requests?
Missing orders are reviewed on a case by case basis. Best Buy Canada reviews missing orders that are entered into CJ’s Transaction Inquiry Manager. As per the Best Buy Canada Special Terms and Conditions, Best Buy Canada only reviews missing orders that are 90 days old or less.
What is the policy for search publishers?
Brand and trademark bidding in any form is not allowed in the Best Buy Canada Affiliate Program. We highly recommend that publishers make the Best Buy Canada brand (as well as any misspellings) a negative match in search campaigns. When you accept the program term in CJ, you are also agreeing to our search policy. Please review it carefully prior to accepting the program terms to ensure you will abide by them.
Who can I contact with further questions?
Please e-mail us at Bestbuy@OPMpros.com
Will I earn commissions on qualifying orders placed through mobile phones and tablet devices?
Not at the moment, but we are working towards this and will advise you when this becomes available.
