Websites approved for use in the WPA Affiliate Program
Most WordPress-related and other websites relevant to WP Apprentice products qualify to participate in the Affiliate Program. We reserve the right to refuse membership to a website or revoke your Affiliate account at any time if we determine that your website contains objectionable material.
Your site must also be functional with original content, and not purposed solely to advertise products. No spam or scraper sites will be approved. If your site is still in its development stage, please apply after it’s completed and has been launched on a public domain.

Promoting the Program without a website
Although promotion through websites is the most popular way for Affiliates to promote the Program, we recognize that different markets have different needs. If you do not include a website to review, please make sure to include details regarding how you plan to market the Program in the Comments section on the Affiliate Program application.
Buying WPA Training using your own Affiliate link
As a general rule, Affiliates are not eligible for commissions on purchases made through your own affiliate links. However, we recognize there may be situations where your business makes sales in such a way that this process is preferable. Since we monitor transactions for self-sales, we ask that you get in touch with us before you begin using your own links for sales so we can set up an arrangement that meets your needs.

“This website is independently owned and an affiliate marketer of WP Apprentice. It is not sponsored by WP Apprentice, Oxford Media Works, WordPress®, or Automattic Inc.
Can I promote my affiliate link on Twitter with hashtags like #WPApprentice, #WPEssentials and #WPBlueprint?
We encourage you to engage and participate in WP Apprentice-related discussions on Twitter. Tweets with product hash tags that include an affiliate link are acceptable, provided they are not repeatedly tweeted and/or tweeted under multiple Twitter accounts simultaneously.
