    Hello everyone, I was wondering if there are any rules or requirements for posting affiliate offers here in Black Hat World.

    Thanks!

    Yes you are not allowed to post affiliate offers under your name unless you are a Jr.VIP then you can put it in your signature.

    You can post up to 3 affiliate links in your signature if you upgrade to a Donor or Jr VIP subscription.

    You can't make posts with calls-to-action promoting the affiliate links. If you want to promote an affiliate network or offer you're directly involved in, you need to post these in the marketplace so they get reviewed and checked before it goes live. To do this, you need to be a Jr VIP member.

    If you want to upgrade to Jr VIP, you need to have 100 quality posts and have been on the forum for over 60 days. You can then subscribe for $97 per year.

    You don't meet the 100 posts criteria yet, so if you want to post affiliate links in your signature, you can get Donor membership for $97 per year. It gives you the same benefits as Jr VIP except you can't submit a marketplace thread.

    Just to make you aware, Jr VIP and Donor accounts aren't related at all and there's no upgrade path between the two. Donor was created so that newbies can have custom avatars, signatures and titles. if you subscribe to Donor but want to be a Jr VIP soon, we can't convert the membership and you'll save yourself money by waiting until you're eligible.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    Just an easy question, when you all say "post links in your signature" this also includes a banner in my signature too, right? Just want to be 100% clear on this!

    No, you can either post a banner (728x90px) OR up to 3 affiliate links. Not both together.

    I'm not too sure if you are referring to me, but my offer doesn't really fit a traditional niche, although it can be placed in selling digital goods...I suppose. Naturally, I can't mention the offer here.
