Once your application has been approved, you’ll have access to a dashboard filled with ready to use tracking links, including banner ads, text links, and products ads you can use to promote Mountain House. When someone visits our site through one of the affiliate links you’ve posted, you can earn commissions on any purchase they make on for 30 days after their initial visit. That generous time allotment means they have time to consume your content, research products on our site, think about it, and then come back to make a purchase.

  • Your site/content needs to be family-friendly. That means no porn, graphic violence, gratuitous explicit language, supporting violent groups or anything else we would classify as objectionable material. Also no spammers, so no sending unsolicited emails either.
