How do I get paid?

Each cannabis affiliate program has a registration process which will ask for your payment details. Most affiliate programs will use either check, direct bank deposit, or PayPal.


Brands will either pay you on their own recurring schedule or it will be up to you to invoice them to receive payment.

Payment Thresholds

Most affiliate programs have a minimum balance before paying out. When registering the site will show what the balance of your account must be at to be able to withdraw or request payment, this varies from $100 to $50 most of the time.

Do I need to pay taxes as an affiliate marketer?

As you earn money promoting brands though affiliate programs you will need to be ready to pay taxes at the end of the year. When you join affiliate programs you are treated like a freelance contractor. Most affiliate programs will request the proper tax paperwork on signup but it is up to you to be ready to pay taxes due.


Research the proper ways to pay estimated taxes throughout the year, in the US the 1040ES payments are expected every quarter. Contact your accountant as you start as an affiliate marketer so that you can be on top of your filing needs before they are an issue and you end up not having the money to pay the government.

How does the cannabis affiliate program rating work?
