How it works

Becoming an affiliate is simple. First go to www.bullionvault.com and Register, so that you have a BullionVault account. Please note that you will need to validate your BullionVault account to withdraw any proceeds.

Your referral link to BullionVault then takes the form:

https://www.bullionvaultaffiliate.com/MYUSERNAME/en

Please remember to change MYUSERNAME to the BullionVault username you chose when registering.

You may notice that the URL string returned by clicking on the referral link is long. Please be reassured that your referral details will be captured in our database.

The html code you need to add to your website is:

<a href="https://www.bullionvaultaffiliate.com/MYUSERNAME/en">BullionVault</a>

Please note that the above referral URL structure is the only way referrers can link to BullionVault. If you use any other URL structure then you will not receive any commission.

If you are looking to refer only one or two friends, another way we can record your referrals is on the BullionVault registration page in our marketing drop-down called "How did you first find BullionVault?"

In the drop-down is a field called "Referred by" which allows your friend to enter your BullionVault username in the "Please enter the username" box.

If you have any questions or would like more information regarding the BullionVault Referral Programme or any other marketing query please contact us at referrals@BullionVault.com

Example: Banner advert

If you would like to add a banner to your website, the html code you need to use is:

<a href="https://www.bullionvaultaffiliate.com/MYUSERNAME/en"><img src="https://banners.bullionvault.com/en/BV_468x60_v1.gif" title="BullionVault" alt="BullionVault" border="0" width="468" height="60"></a>

This will generate a referrer link as follows:

BullionVault

Please remember again to change MYUSERNAME to the BullionVault username you chose when registering.

You can choose an alternative banner image from our banner catalogue.

Ways to refer

Use your referral links and banners on your site, blogs, emails, message boards, personal social media pages etc.

NB If you use email we insist that you avoid spamming.

You can also display the latest gold or silver buy and sell prices via our live price widgets. There are 4 banner sizes to choose from and you can include your referral id in the code.

You may also like to consider embedding BullionVault's customisable gold and silver price chart on to your website. You have two versions to choose from and both allow you to include your referral id in the code.
