What is the BlueStacks affiliate program? How does it work?
The BlueStacks affiliate program is a revenue sharing program where you as the affiliate partner drives traffic to a merchant’s web site in exchange for referral commissions. When a visitor to your site clicks on the affiliate link to our site and completes a BlueStacks download and/or Game Offer install, you get a commission for every game they install!
BlueStacks provides our affiliates with tracking, reporting, prompt payments, and flexibility as the site expert of personally selecting the best game titles/offers for their gaming community.
Once you sign up for and are accepted to our program, you’ll be taken to the BlueStacks affiliate portal where you’ll create your own personal and secure account. Here you can log in at any time to find the latest game offers, find out about commissions earned, and review how many clicks & installs you’ve influenced via our simplified color coded graph.

How much you earn is completely up to you! As the community manager for your site it’s important that you are selecting offers on the platform that are relevant and traffic drivers. The more installs you get the more commission you earn.

BlueStacks affiliate commissions are paid out on a tiered system:
CPIs up to $12 depending on the offer and country
