If you have created an item on Zazzle and would like to advertise it to the GeekZone community, or if you have just found something awesome on Zazzle, follow this guide so that you can support GeekZone without any expense to you! This will allow GeekZone to receive 15% of the sale price as a referral fee. If enough people buy Zazzle items via GeekZone, this could get up to 32%!

This is a click-by-click guide. There are lots of steps but all of them are very easy.

  1. Find the address of your item
    This is in the address bar and will look something like this[name of your time]-[long number]
  2. Add ?rf=238770068874347674
    This is the GeekZone affiliate code on Zazzle. It tells Zazzle that GeekZone has referred a customer to them.
    Zazzle then gives GeekZone 15% of that sale - you still your normal creators fee.
    You should now have a URL that looks like this;[name of your time]-[long number]?rf=238770068874347674
    Keep this safe, you will need it later on!
