TurboSquid Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions

The TurboSquid Affiliate Program gives our SquidGuild artists the opportunity to make 20% commission on all the model and texture sales from a referring link. You can track affiliate click-throughs and sales on the seller Dashboard (August 2009 release) within minutes of their occurrence. Non-SquidGuild members will receive a 15% commission. Please note: you must be a TurboSquid seller in order to participate in the affiliate program.  A TurboSquid seller is a member who has products listed for sale on TurboSquid.
