Westminster Bookstore Blog Partners Program

Got a blog? Like books and like to write about them? WTSBOOKS Blog Partners Program offers you the chance to earn books or other merchandise from our store while introducing your readers to quality Christian books.

Participation is easy. Once youve registered for the program, simply link to our store on your website. Each time you refer a visitor you will earn money toward a Westminster Bookstore gift certificate. Payout is made monthly to those who have reached $50.

How to Get Started

In order to participate in our Blog Partners Program you must register your website with us ( see terms and eligibility requirements). Please send the web address of your blog, your full name, and mailing address to [email protected].

Once your website has been approved, you will need to submit a W9 Form to complete the registration (see note on taxes below). We will then send you a welcome email with instructions on how to create your referral links.

Thats it! Each month you will receive an email report from us listing your total referrals to date and the amount you've earned.

Payout Rate

Your monthly payout is determined by your conversion rate—the percentage of referrals that results in a transaction.

Conversion Rate Payout Rate
4% or higher 25¢
2 – 3.9% 20¢
1 – 1.9% 10¢
Under 1%

Example: If your blog refers 100 visitors to the bookstore in January and two of them buy a book, you have a 2% conversion rate for that month.

In this scenario, you will earn $20 in January.

Any gift certificate you've earned above a minimum of $50 will be emailed to you. Your referrals and earned gift certificate dollars do not expire; they keep accumulating until you've earned a minimum for payout.

Important Note on Taxes

All blog partners are required to submit a completed W9 Form because, should you reach $600 in payout during a calendar year, we are required by law to file a report to the IRS and send you Form1099. It is very important that your W9 is current. If there are changes to your information you must notify us and send an updated W9 Form.

If you earn less than $600 we will not send you a 1099; however, any payout you earn is considered taxable income. Please consult a tax professional for further assistance.
