Give iTunes Gifts, Make A Little For Yourself!

The iTunes / App Store Affiliate Program announced yesterday that they’ve extended the ability to earn commissions on gift purchases from the iOS 6 iTunes Store (something that was previously only available for desktop iTunes Store).

Still wondering why you should be stoked about this?

Look at it this way: The price point of an iTunes Store gift card ($10 – $100) is significantly higher than your typical item (i.e. Angry Birds for $0.99).  Now, would you rather have 5% of $10, or 5% of $0.99? We thought so.

So can GeoRiot support this?

Answer: Absolutely!

Just take this URL (https://buy.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/buyLandingPage) and convert it into a GeoRiot link using the “Quick Build” format and making sure you grab your TSID (or just swap out the TSID in the link below with yours).

E.g.

<http://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=19&GR_URL=https%253A%252F%252Fbuy.itunes.apple.com%252FWebObjects%252FMZFinance.woa%252Fwa%252FbuyLandingPage%253FpartnerId%253D30>

And what if you want to use GeoRiot with one of the pretty banners that are now available? No problem!

Just take the HTML that you got from LinkShare and swap out the URL in the HREF tag with your GeoRiot link.

E.g. This:

<a href=”http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=8i/ET44NjHw&offerid=78524.10001961&type=4&subid=0″><IMG alt=”Apple iTunes” border=”0″ src=”http://images.apple.com/itunesaffiliates/US/newsletter/GiftCertificates_120x90.jpg”></a><IMG border=”0″ width=”1″ height=”1″ src=”http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=8i/ET44NjHw&bids=78524.10001961&type=4&subid=0″>

Goes to this (again, remember to use your TSID):

<a href=”http://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=19&GR_URL=https%253A%252F%252Fbuy.itunes.apple.com%252FWebObjects%252FMZFinance.woa%252Fwa%252FbuyLandingPage%253FpartnerId%253D30″><IMG alt=”Apple iTunes” border=”0″ src=”http://images.apple.com/itunesaffiliates/US/newsletter/GiftCertificates_120x90.jpg”></a><IMG border=”0″ width=”1″ height=”1″ src=”http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=8i/ET44NjHw&bids=78524.10001961&type=4&subid=0″>

Have fun!
