Looking for some awesome vegan affiliate programs to make some money with promoting vegan products? Well I got a list of 13 for you!
Veganism is a wave of the future and there is no stopping it. It is growing in popularity and I only foresee it continuing to do so as our environmental problems continue to pile up. We have seen massive rises in plant-based foods, supplements, personal care products, fashions, and vegan things in a number of other industries.
And besides helping save the planet, another perk of this new and emerging market is that you can make money from it. There are a lot of affiliate programs out there and I'm going to show you some of the best of them… 13 of them to be exact.
So if you have a passion for health, helping animals and just overall being good to our environment… And you want to make a little bit (or a lot) of money promoting awesome products via affiliate marketing then stay tuned…
I have broken up the list into four different categories: We have the vegan food/nutrition affiliate programs, vegan e-product affiliate programs, the vegan fashion affiliate programs, and vegan cosmetics affiliate programs. So no matter what type of vegan products you are looking to promote, I'm sure there is a program on this list that will suit your needs.
Vegan Food/Nutrition Affiliate Programs
By the way... These are listed in no particular order. One affiliate program might be great for somebody while another might be better for somebody else.
#1 - Vegan Cuts
First off we have Vegan Cuts. This program offers..
- $3 commissions on boxes and 10% on other products
- Not sure about cookie length
- Some pretty cool vegan products available
I'm listing this particular program in the food/nutrition section, but really they have a lot more than just food and nutrition. They sell all sorts of vegan products and could be a good choice for a number of vegan audiences. Some of the things they sell include vegan chocolates, shampoo, lipstick, juices, organic green smoothie mix, and more.
On the one bullet point above I wrote that they offer $3 commissions on boxes. What am talking about here are product packages that they sell in boxes. For example they have their Beauty Box that is filled with vegan cosmetic and skin care products, all bundled up in one package. They also have their Snack Box that is filled with vegan chips, cookies, sodas and more.
This place offers a subscription service where customers can sign up to receive boxes every month. However, I'm not sure if you will be able to earn recurring commissions for their recurring payments.
All in all, this is a pretty solid brand with a lot of good products.
#2 - Vegin Out
Vegin Out is an incredibly tasty vegan meal plan provider that runs an affiliate program in which...
- You get 15% commissions
- Don't need a website
This seems to be a rather small company, but don't let that fool you. They have some pretty good products, which consist of prepared meals, and you can definitely make some good money from this.
They prefer that affiliates promote to the Los Angeles area since this is where the headquarters are located and where the food is prepared, but this is not absolutely necessary because they do have nationwide shipping… Meaning you can promote it nationwide.
This place also offers recurring meal plans but again, I am not completely sure whether you will receive recurring commissions or only get paid for the first order a customer makes.
The meals are top-notch and are prepared by a vegan chef that has written volumes of vegan cookbooks. They have a lot of really nice meals and just as I was looking at them a minute ago before writing this, I was getting incredibly hungry. They have Veggie Korma, Sweet and Sour Veggies and Tofu, Pasta Primavera, Peanut Quinoa and more.
Some of the perks to the affiliate program in particular are that you do not need a website. You can promote this on social media, to a mailing list, etc and the sales range from $99-$619.99… Which means there's the potential to earn some pretty high commissions.
The affiliate program is run by ShareASale.
#3 - UrthBox
UrthBox is another great choice for all my vegan affiliates out there. Some highlights include:
- $17 commissions on each sale
- 60 day cookies
- 25 different box options
- Affiliate program through ShareASale
What is UrthBox? This is a company that gives members a way to discover new healthy foods. In a nutshell, this place is a membership service that delivers boxes of gourmet foods, snacks, beverages, personal care products and more each month… Each box over $50 in retail value.
What they do is select new products to include in their boxes from known and upcoming brands. All the products are analyzed and each ingredient is looked at to make sure members are getting the best of vegan products at good prices.
You don't really know what you're going to get which makes this a fun way to learn about and experience new products you might not have otherwise came across.
People are able to buy Mini Boxes for $19.99 per month or Large Boxes for $49.99 per month. They also sell gift boxes that cover six months and cost as much as $269.99. However, it seems that no matter what type of box you sell you will still get the same $17 commission.
Its a nice little vegan service that I think a lot of people will enjoy, I just wish the affiliate program was a bit more lucrative.
#4 - Ground-Based Nutrition
Ground-Based Nutrition is a place that I really like. The name says it all… Everything comes from the ground.
In particular, this is a great affiliate program for someone in the vegan fitness niche… Whether that be vegan bodybuilding, vegan powerlifting, vegan CrossFit, etc.
They have a nice selection of plant-based products that include protein powders, pre-workouts, electrolyte supplements, digestion aids and more.
Details of the affiliate program are as follows…
- 10% commission payouts
- Don't need a website to join
- Good quality products
- Not sure about cookie length
Like every other company featured on this list, the products that this place manufactures are good quality and top-notch. So you don't have to worry about potentially promoting a bunch of crappy products that people are going to be angry with.
They claim that their average order size is $80. Now I do not know how true this is, but if this is true then that means the average commission would be eight dollars… Nothing amazing but nothing horrible either.
To help you get started as an affiliate you will be assigned your own affiliate manager to help guide you and provide support. You will also be provided with banners and have the ability to have the design team costom make banners for your promotional needs.
#5 - Thrive Market
Next on the list is Thrive Market. This place isn't strictly a vegan food market, but it does have a rather large vegan section that is absolutely filled with products. In all, this place carries non-GMO, organic, gluten-free and vegan food/products.
How it works is members can join and save 25 to 50% from their massive marketplace filled with various brands and tons of products.
The affiliate program is run through Commission Junction and some of the highlights are:
- Pays $25 for new customers
- 14 day cookies
- A boatload of products
- Helps out the community
Food, beverages, beauty products, personal care products, baby products, pet products, and more… There are plenty of products to choose from which makes this affiliate program attractive for people of various different micro-niches inside the vegan niche.
When you refer a new member they first get to take part in a 30 day free trial, in which after they will have to pay the $59.95 for the yearly membership… But even after that you don't get paid. You don't get paid your $25 commission until the customer makes their first purchase.
But besides making money, another good thing about this program is that it helps out the community. For every person that you get to join they give a free membership to a low income family.
Vegan e-Product Affiliate Programs
And next up are the vegan e-product affiliate programs. E-products can be things like e-books, digital programs, training guides and so on.
Not only do the affiliate programs listed below sell vegan related e-products... It is also nice to think that e-products in of themselves are pretty environmentally friendly and thus widely vegan approved.
#6 - Nutriciously
Nutritiously's affiliate program pays out some pretty darn good commissions and they have some nice cookies that last for 30 days. All in all, if you have the right audience this can be a fairly lucrative affiliate program. But you will need a website.
- You earn 50% commissions
- Cookies last for 30 days
- Need a website
- Payments made by PayPal
Nutritiously sells different vegan related e-guides (if you want to call them that).
One of their guides, called From A to Vegan: The Complete Starter Kit, is basically a series of e-books that helps people become vegans. It can be a difficult procedure for someone to switch over to a vegan lifestyle. If you are someone who was in the process of doing this, or who has done it recently then I am sure you are well aware of this. A lot of people give up with veganism and this is because they often take the wrong approach.
Another product they sell is called Losing Weight Effortlessly… And this is a series of three e-books that is all about losing weight on a plant-based diet.
Anyone can join this program, even if you are outside the US, but of course it is a requirement to have a PayPal account in order to get paid, so some countries might be off limits because of this requirement.
#7 - No Meat Athlete
The No Meat Athlete affiliate program might be worth joining if you have an audience that is vegan and is interested in races, specifically marathons and triathlons… Although their products may also convert well for similar types of athletes.
This affiliate program pays out 50% commissions and you may be happy to hear that you don't even need a website to promote it.
- Some nice 50% commissions
- Get paid via PayPal twice a month
- Don't need a website
You may have never heard of No Meet Athlete before but they have actually been featured in Runners World, WebMD, SHAPE, zenhabits, and others.
Just to give you an idea of what you could promote here, their products include the Triathlon Roadmap and Marathon Roadmap, Wake Up which is an e-book on positive lifestyle changes, and Fuel Your Run the Tarahumara Way which provides recipes and info about what you can eat as vegan fuel.
But not all of their products are simple e-books. For example, the Marathon Roadmap includes not just an e-book for guidance, but also gives you a weekly check-in video to keep track of your fitness goals.
These products range in price from around $17 to around $67.… Which means you could earn around $8.50 to $33.50 per sale.
#8 - Clickbank
Now if you are familiar with ClickBank then vegan probably isn't the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of them. However, they are definitely a darn good affiliate program out there for people looking to promote vegan e-products and I'll prove it.
Some highlights to this affiliate program include…
- Trusted marketplace
- Tons of products
- High conversions
- Potential high commissions
As you may know, ClickBank is in a way similar to eBay. They are basically marketplace where individuals can easily and safely sell their own products to buyers. They started out as a strictly digital product platform but have since expanded to now sell physical products as well.
There are plenty of vegan related products that you can promote as an affiliate. Just as an example, here are some digital e-book type products I came across within no time…
And as an affiliate you can even promote high-quality vegan physical products as well, such as these green smoothie powders…
The commissions that you can make will vary a lot because it all depends on the seller, but I have seen some products on ClickBank offering over 75% commissions and based on what I saw with the vegan related products, there are some decent commissions out there waiting to be made.
ClickBank products also often have pretty high conversions because people with online marketing experience often create them, and many of them have upsells which means the potential for making more money on top of the initial sale.
Vegan Fashion Affiliate Programs
And we can't forget about vegan fashion. There is an increased demand for cruelty-free clothing and accessories, whether they be made from fake leather, fake wool, etc. And here are some awesome affiliate programs you can get paid to promote such products for…
#9 - corkor
Affiliate program highlights:
- 10% commissions
- 30 day cookie length
As you can probably tell by the name corkor, this company is all about selling cork based products.
They sell a number of different products, bags, wallets, belts and more… And while they may look like genuine leather, they are not. The material comes from a tree and is natural, sustainable, light, soft, water resistant, and resistant to abrasion
You can promote fashionable products for both men and women and it is all made from cork fabric, which comes from trees that are part of sustainably managed forests… All FSC certified.
The products are also created with love… Being handcrafted with the use of machinery instead of being manufactured on a mass scale.
Products range from around $10-$160, so there is the potential to earn some decent commissions.
#10 - Gunas
Gunas is another great affiliate program to join if you are looking to promote vegan fashion. They claim to be "America's first 100% vegan handbag brand", and while I do not know how true the statement is, regardless they are a good brand with a lot of good products. And… They have been around for a while, since 2009.
Their affiliate program is run by ShareASale and some of the highlights of it are:
- You get a 7% base commission but can earn up to 15%
- 60 day cookie length
- Paid via check or direct deposit
Bags, bags, and more bags. This place sells all sorts of bags from shoulder bags, to cross body bags, to clutches, backpacks, totes, and even wallets.
All of their products are 100% animal-free. There is no fur, wool, leather, silk, etc. Instead they use materials like eco-polyurethane, ultra-leather, ultra-suede, nylons and others.
It is also worth mentioning that they go beyond just manufacturing vegan bags. They are all around cruelty-free and make sure that their different manufacturer locations treat their workers fairly.
One thing that I like about this affiliate program is that, although the commissions start off pretty darn low at only 7%, you do have the ability to increase that percentage. There are also lots of expensive bags you can promote, some costing over $200 which could earn you some nice commissions.
#11 - thought
- 6-12% commissions
- 30 day cookies
- Lots of promotional materials (banners, etc)
- Plenty of products to promote
And then there is Thought… This is a good brand to promote to an audience that you think might be interested in clothing fashion. They have vegan clothing available for both men and women, and these include things like dresses, jackets, knitwear, leggings, socks, skirts, tops, trousers and more.
The materials used for the clothing include organic cotton, bamboo fiber, hemp, rayon from recycled tree pulp, and they also use tencel and modal that our first harvested from sustainable forests.
They have a wide variety of products and are not too crazy expensive… So if you have an audience that is looking for vegan fashion, but is on a budget, this might be right up your alley.
Making 6 to 12% commissions is nothing amazing, but they do claim that their conversion rate is around 7% which is pretty good.
The affiliate program is ran through LinkShare.
Vegan Cosmetics Affiliate Programs
And then we have vegan cosmetics affiliate programs...
#12 - The Detox Market
The Detox Market was founded in Venice Beach back in 2010. They specialize in vegan cosmetic products such as skincare, makeup, hair care, fragrances, bath and body products, supplements and more… Which are all natural and cruelty-free, and are of the highest quality, being checked for purity before being sold.
Products from this place could convert well with several different types of vegan audiences. They have products that are focused on anti-aging, reducing wrinkles and stuff like that, and they also have makeup and fragrances… Which sometimes attracted two different audiences.
The affiliate program is run by ShareASale and some of the highlights include:
- 10% commissions
- 30 day cookies
- Lots of good quality products
Most of their products aren't that expensive but they do have some that are well over $100 and that you could earn some nice commissions with.
#13 - 100% Pure
And last but definitely not least, we have a place called 100% Pure that is all about creating cosmetic products that are 100% pure with natural ingredients, containing no synthetic dyes, fragrances, etc.
Everything here comes from plants, the pigments, the fragrances, every part of the formula. And they go through a lot to make sure their customers get the best products. This place uses a patent pending formula based around stabilizing ingredients from oxidation so that they do not lose their potency.
So what you get is non-toxic, organic, vegan, biodegradable, and potent.
The affiliate program is powered by Commission Junction and offers…
- Get 8% commissions on sales
- High quality, well tested products
- Don't need a website
Commissions our nothing amazing, and I'm not exactly sure how long the cookie link that is, but when perks of this affiliate program is that you don't need a website.
Promoting Vegan Products Like a Pro
There are a lot of different approaches you can take when it comes to promoting vegan products. One thing I would recommend is to choose a "micro-niche", which basically means to narrow down the larger vegan niche a bit to a smaller sub- niche. So instead of targeting vegans in general, try to target a specific type of vegans.
Just to give you an example, you could target vegans that are into leather fashion, fake leather fashion of course. You can promote all sorts of things such as wallet, belts, bags, etc. and join affiliate programs like Corkor and Gunas.
I would also highly suggest creating your own affiliate website. Yes, this can be a daunting task and it certainly may be more appealing to just go promote products without a website, but with a website you can definitely make more money.
You can check out my recommended training for building a website and creating your own affiliate marketing business for more info. This took me from $0 to over $6,000 dollars a month online.
But anyways… I hope you enjoyed this list and found it helpful. Please leave any comments, questions, or concerns below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
