The Step-By-Step Guide to Join Adobe Affiliate Program - Wisdomiser

Adobe Affiliate Program:

Adobe Affiliate Program is an attractive commission paying Affiliate program where you can earn a lot of money through its Affiliate Program. Promoting their Adobe products like Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Stock, and Adobe Document Cloud on your blog, website, or any other social media platform will make you a massive amount of money if anyone purchases Adobe Products from your Affiliate links.

If you are running a particular niche website only to promote products of Affiliate Programs, then you can run Adobe Affiliate ads on your Site without Google Adsense approval.

Adding and running Adobe ads on your Site will drive you a lot of impressions for Adobe ads, which may make a massive impact on your Affiliate Earnings through these Adobe Ads on your Site. Just not only by website or blog, but you can also earn huge money from Adobe by sharing its links in social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Reddit is also the best place for sharing with an attractive description in Reddit Groups.

If you take a look at Adobe commission rates, Adobe pays a higher commission rate than other Affiliate Programs. For different products, the commission rates are also different for each Adobe product.

After all this, Now the main important thing is to place Ads, Banners, and Links in your Website.

Selecting Ads, Banners, and Links:

     1. On your Menu account choose >> Tracking >> My Ads

      2. If you have multiple websites select the correct program, click under >> Program name.

Here you will find a selection of text links and banner images (JPG/GIF). You can choose an ad by product category, size or select “List all available ads”.

Once you have selected a banner please click on >> Show Code.

When you click Show code a pop-up window will be opened with the HTML Code. Next, select options for the code and copy and paste onto your website. The Show Code popup displays different options depending on the type of ad, you can select any type on your interest.

The example below is the code for the banner:

     1. Choose the website which you added and where the ad is to be published. You can only choose the websites with the status “Accepted”.

2. Tick the checkbox to select:

-  JavaScript

Deep Links:

Text links are used to link directly to the Adobe Store. Deep links are text links that direct the visitor to a specific page on the Adobe Store rather than to the home page. As the target URL contains content related to the ad, Deep links results in much more targeted linking.

1. Click on >>> Tracking >>> My Ads.

2. If you have multiple websites select the correct program, click under >> Program Name
Select >> Create Deeplink.

3. Select text link format.

4. Full anchor Tag.

Enhanced Publisher Integration or EPI parameter allows you to uniquely identify a specific tracking link, and view performance data on how well each unique EPI an encoded link has performed.

Setting up EPI:

EPI requires one parameter, which you add to your tracking link and get actions reported on that parameter. Generally the parameter can be letters, numbers or any combination thereof. The maximum length is 64 characters.

EPI Reporting:

By implementing this parameter, you will be able to identify which tracking links are generating sales. For EPI reports go to Reports>> More Reports>> Event break down PLT.


You can access all relevant reports of Adobe Affiliate Program under >> Reports in your publisher interface.

It will give you payment information on the next payment date and the minimum payment threshold needed in order to generate a payment. This report has three sections. Once transactions not yet qualified for payment, transactions to be paid in the next payment and rejected payments.


Rejected payments

These are payments rejected by your bank. Make sure that you have entered your bank details correctly in order to receive payments. If your details are incorrect, then the payment will not go through, and you will need to wait until the next payment period.



The payment report displays transactions that have been paid to your account in the respective payment run. Click the sum in the Sum converted column for a breakdown of transactions where each transaction has its own row with detailed information. Commissions for sales and leads are broken down per transaction while click and impressions are aggregated per day.
