Getting Started

Following are important first steps to get started as an affiliate as well as answers to common questions. If you don't find what you're looking for here, contact us at

  1. A Dashboard in Refersion, our affiliate provider, gives access to your CKAP tools and activity.
    TIP: Sign in using the password you created when you applied, or if you've forgotten, ask Refersion for a password reset.
  2. Update your PayPal email address to get paid. Career Key makes a payment to your PayPal account each time your balance reaches $50 or monthly if your commissions balance exceeds $50 per month. In order to pay you, we need your accurate PayPal email address.
    TIP: Check or change your PayPal email in the Refersion Settings tab. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can set one up HERE. It's easy and free.
  3. Creatives are pre-designed visuals that boost your Affiliate message. Use of Creatives automatically includes your unique Affiliate link. Add them to blog posts and in social media to draw user attention and prompt click through.
    TIP: Find CKAP banners in the Refersion Creatives tab. Our Creatives library is always growing, so please contact us with new ideas or your specific needs for CKAP graphics.
