How to Become a Microsoft® Office University Affiliate
The Microsoft Office University affiliate programme is hosted by Digital River. Digital River manages a variety of affiliate programs, and access to the network is free. You just need to apply.
To become an affiliate:
Your sales will be tracked through a cookie. It's connected to the personal link you are provided with (which you'll put on your website or webpage.) When someone clicks on your ad and visits the store, the sale is tracked as being made by you. The cookie that tracks your sales by any one customer is active for 60 days. That means that any sale the customer may make within 60 days will be credited to you. However, if customer clicks are driven by another affiliate after their initial click of your link, the sale will be tracked to the more recent link.
The only thing you're not able to do is promote (sell) through paid search ads. There are restrictions on promoting through search engines like Google and Overture. If you are interested in using this method to sell, you must first contact the affiliate program managers by emailing email@example.com. Only they will be able to give permission. (See The Special Terms and Conditions for more info.)
