Greetings, I signed up today as an affiliate and was pleased to see such a wide selection of videos that could be embeded on my site. However, it doesnt seem to work?

Is the affiliate program still active? I thought it was discontinued.

It still works on other sites, it looks like the problem is with your affiliate id, you can /contact support to see if there is a problem, or it might just be a situation where it takes a little while for the id to start working.

The affiliate program is very selective with who is being let on board. Normally we would reach out to the sites we think are suitable.

Would be cool if that was made known in the signup process. There was no hint of that. I was kind of surprised.

Along with a link that can be found by viewing your own profile, or any other user who is also an affiliate member


a quick search returns this still active result:

/help?topic=affiliates

And this old thread:
/forumtopic-800261/crunchyroll-affiliate-program-and-why

I would have PM'd you that, but your profile says you don't respond to PM's...

Yeah, the profile is probably the only place it is actively linked still.
The help topic is actually another defunct part of the page, I think. Should probably be removed.

There's actually another program set up for affiliates which is different than the one being referenced here. It's strictly invitational and not geared towards video embedding any more.

I just did a Google search for crunchyroll affiliate and signed up via that link. So should I expect that I haven't been approved so far and likely wont be? And thusly I shouldn't expect the embedded videos to work?

ahhhhh.
Your affiliate account has not been approved yet. It will be approved within 3-7 business days. While waiting for approval, you can get started below by adding widgets to your site.
