Otaku Affiliates FAQ

How does the Otaku Box work?

keyboard_arrow_down

Every month the subscribers will receive a box full of fun anime and gaming items, and they get to vote for what they get. Each Otaku Box comes with a wall scroll, button, optional t-shirt and figure (yes, a figure!), and 3-5 more anime items!

Unlike other anime loot crate boxes, The Otaku Box is personalized by the subscribers, for the subscribers by a monthly anime and art vote.
They’ll get to have your say in customizing The Otaku Box the way they want. I also offer exclusive fanservice art and items in every box!

I'll be getting any free box?

For the Otaku Affiliates program, The Otaku Box does not send free boxes, but you are eligible for quarterly/semiannual TOB giveaways for affiliates!

I am a subscriber, can I participate in the Otaku Affiliates?

keyboard_arrow_down

Sure yes. I would love to have you in my program! Please share with your friends your love for The Otaku Box (and get paid for it).

I don’t have any Otaku Box with me, can I participate?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes! You can promote with the monthly graphics that my team and I will update you by email/Discord.

Where do I find my Affiliate Link?

keyboard_arrow_down

The link is sent to you in the FIRST EMAIL (The Otaku Box – Otaku Affiliates next steps), your affiliate tracking link, GRIN dashboard, Discord channel, FAQs, Guidelines, and Terms. Don't forget to check your spam too!

Why do I need to use GRIN?

keyboard_arrow_down

GRIN is a platform that allows me to track your sales, see your promotional posts and stories. You can also receive payments through the platform. It's essential to keep your GRIN dashboard updated.

Should I connect all my socials in GRIN?

keyboard_arrow_down

You should connect all the socials you are currently using to promote TOB.

When will I receive the promo graphics?

keyboard_arrow_down

Affiliates will receive monthly emails with “Promotion Materials” from me or my team (usually at the beginning of the month) with graphics for posts and stories.
Make sure to post the information correctly (wrong information isn’t allowed).

It's essential to use your affiliate link as a swipe up, in your bio, or every time you are promoting (sent in your first email). You can find some example descriptions to use in the FAQ doc [link], but the posts will perform better (i.e., more sales) if you get creative and use your own words. You decide when/how to promote, just pay attention to the details!

How I'll get paid?

keyboard_arrow_down

For every referral sale you do, you will get 30% of the sale value (for example: if someone buys a box using your link for $55, you will get $16.5).

Please make sure to update your GRIN dashboard and settings to connect your active PayPal account. Also, verify your account. This is the only payment method I can offer.

When I'll get my payment?

keyboard_arrow_down

Payouts will be made during the first week of the month for the previous month through GRIN platform, based on your affiliate sales.

How do I see how many boxes I sold this month?

keyboard_arrow_down

After you verify your GRIN account and tax form. You will have access to your statistics on your GRIN Dashboard> Payouts. You also will be able to see the status of the payment.

How do I participate in the paid promotions?

keyboard_arrow_down

When needed, I will send you an email for the specific promotion I want you to make with graphics, information, and price!

I didn't receive the first email yet. What should I do?

keyboard_arrow_down

Please check your spam. Maybe you blocked my email, and if not, most likely, you have not been accepted for this program.

Should I make videos, posts, or stories?

keyboard_arrow_down

How you will promote it’s up to you! You know your audience/friends the best, and I genuinely want you to keep your style. But I have some post descriptions to inspire you in the FAQ, Guidelines, and Terms doc. Don’t forget to tag and mention @theotakubox in all the promoting posts and use your affiliate link!

Can I have another sponsor?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes, but do not promote The Otaku Box alongside another brand; If you do posts/stories, they must be dedicated to The Otaku Box only. Adsense is OK.

My promotions/videos need to be in English only?

keyboard_arrow_down

Not necessary, but since our customers mainly are English speakers, it’s a key!

I'm an Otaku Affiliate for more than six months now. When and where will the draws happen?

keyboard_arrow_down

I will use our Otaku Affiliates Discord channel and emails to get in touch. Stay tuned there!

I have a question: How do I contact you?

keyboard_arrow_down

Please use the general chat in our Otaku Affiliates Discord channel rather than email, my manager or I will help you! Discord is the primary method for communication, and I appreciate you using it. Note: No DMs are allowed. All the questions need to be asked and answered in the group channel.

Can I delete the promo post after the month ends?

keyboard_arrow_down

You decide since the promotion posts are up to you! But I highly encourage you to leave the post up for a certain time to reach more people.
