How do I create links?
Using the Linkmaker, you create your affiliate links. Simply copy the product link from one of our online partner shops and paste it into our Linkmaker. First select whether you want to post the link to Instagram, Pinterest, your blog or YouTube and move the slider accordingly. Very important: It only works with our partner shops! Online shops which do not cooperate with stylink cannot generate affiliate links. Within a few moments, you will receive the affiliate link. Copy it and paste it as a swipe up into your Instagram story or alternatively into your description box on YouTube. We have a detailed guide for you as well.
If you want to post multiple links in one day, first convert all product links into referral links and then have all the links of the day sent to you by e-mail. After creating the links, go to "My Compensation" and scroll down to the overview of your links. There you can easily email and edit the description of your referral links individually in the Linkmaker. This is especially helpful if a product image cannot be loaded automatically.
Where do I post the affiliate links?
You can post your affiliate links on Instagram, Pinterest, your blog or YouTube. If you want to share your links on YouTube, please move the slider in the Linkmaker to YouTube. Instagram, Pinterest, and Blog is always selected as default.
How do I earn money with stylink?
You receive remuneration for every click of your followers on your affiliate links - you can see exactly how much this is per click and how everything adds up in your account under "My compensation". The clicks and swipe ups of your followers must be based on an intention to buy or obtain information as a result of your recommendation.
Important: Please give our system 24 hours to calculate all your clicks correctly.
When will my compensation be paid?
You can request your payment starting at the amount of £25.00/25,00€ in your account profile.
If you have requested your payout by noon between Monday and Friday, we will transfer the money to you within 24 hours. Please note that it might take a few more days, depending on your bank, until you receive the money.

Simply send us one link at a time so that our system is able to process your request.

My compensation and payout
Please recheck your request and make sure that all your bank details are correct. Please make sure to put in the correct details and especially your full name, otherwise we cannot process your request. If that’s the case, some other important information you should consider: If you make your request between Monday to Friday before noon, we will transfer your payment within 24 hours. If you request your payout on the weekend or on a German bank holiday, we will process it the next working day. Afterwards, it usually takes up to three working days until your money is on your account.
An algorithm regularly adjusts your shop compensation according to the performance of your affiliate links. In addition to the performance, the click compensation also depends on the shop regulations. The exact amount varies from shop to shop and from time to time.
All about using stylink
No, there is no app. stylink works for your followers and for you without any additional app or complicated software. This is especially advantageous for your followers and YouTube subscribers, because they can click your affiliate links and buy products without using an additional app.
It is not allowed to click more than once on your own links. Our algorithm recognises click fraud in the form of manual as well as automated clicks. This behaviour has consequences ranging from downgrades in compensation to the locking of your account.
We're constantly working on new cooperations with new shops. However, some partners do not sell their products via social media platforms like stylink. This is also the reason why you won't find them in your linkmaker. However, if you are particularly missing a certain shop, you are welcome to let us know by sending a message to our support team and we will do our best to ensure that you can hopefully see it in your linkmaker soon.
Our algorithm has evaluated your performance (the amount of clicks & sustainable purchases) and decided to set your click compensation to 0. Therefore, you can no longer see this/these shop/s in your Linkmaker anymore.

pop-up campaign by stylink
pop-up campaign is another way for you to earn money quickly and easily with stylink. With a stylink pop-up campaign, you introduce a digital site to your followers. This can be a well-known online shop or a new brand that you don't yet know from stylink. You don't need a product for the pop-up campaign, just your credible appearance and good content.
We will tell you exclusively what each campaign is about. There is no application phase. We will get in touch with you.
Register now and become part of the stylink community. There are no costs for you. Get started and create your first pop-up campaigns soon.
Are you already registered at stylink? Great, then send us an email at email@example.com and let us know that you would like to be part of the next pop-up campaign.
In contrast to a "normal" campaign, you can implement a pop-up campaign more quickly. You don't receive a product, which means you don't have to wait long to get started. There is also no application phase. The campaign "pops up" on your screen - currently in your email inbox or via WhatsApp - and you can easily accept. You will be paid for every click on your product link that you share in your story or post. The per-click payment for the period of a pop-up campaign is significantly higher than your usual Linkmaker payment. For the pop-up campaigns, we also work with new shops that you don't yet know from Linkmaker.
Yes, you can. That's what's special about our pop-up campaigns: they work without any products. We provide all the information you need about the campaign in question. Then you create your stories and add your stylink recommendation link. That's all you have to do. You don't need products you only need good content!
- You can earn money in a short time
- You receive a high payment per click. The better your content, the more clicks on your links and the more money you earn!
- You decide which campaign matches you best. Do only what you feel comfortable with. Authenticity is everything.
- You meet new brands that are not yet linked in Linkmaker.
- You can receive exclusive offers and discount codes
Don't worry, updating your statistics can take up to 24 hours.
Once your statistics have been updated, they may differ from your Instagram insights. This is because foreign or double clicks are not counted.
Our system needs some time to evaluate and count your links. Thus, you can usually see your commission and click figures about 24 hours after you have posted a link.
You can view the clicks in your stylink account. To do so, log in at stylink.com, click on „Compensation“ and you will be taken directly to your statistics. Here you will see your open commission as well as an overview of your links, including your clicks.
Updating the statistics usually takes up to 24 hours.
Our system is designed to ignore multiple clicks from the same device and foreign clicks. In addition, we only count clicks from your followers in the United Kingdom, Jersey, and Ireland because the Stylinks you create are only available in these countries. The clicks that we count are also those that happen in the "intermediate window with the pink round button," not on your social media account. The intermediate window helps us track and confirm your unique clicks as well as your sales. It also takes 24 to 48 hours until all your links have been updated on your Linkmaker. That's why you may see differences in your social media insights.
