Affiliate Program

Do you want to earn money from getting us clients? Are you looking for valuable offerings to introduce to your network? Get paid for referring clients to us!


Explaining the affiliate program

In summary, we are looking for partners and agents. You provide us with leads and you can get a percentage of the project as a referral fee once we are successful in selling the solution to the client.

How Does IT Work?

Being a MaruAfrica affiliate gives you 2 ways to make extra income.

  1. If you would simply like to become a Referrer and refer clients to us, click this link.
  2. Being an Affiliate is great for both you and your visitors if you have a website and active social media following with visitors. Your visitors get great deals on products from MaruAfrica – and you get cash for qualifying purchases they make through your unique affiliate link!

For Affiliates:
Choose banner ads and text links to place anywhere on your site. You don’t need to be a technical whiz – just copy and paste the code we’ve provided onto your Web page or blog or in your email and you’re done!

Visitors who click through to MaruAfrica from your ads are considered referrals. If they make a qualified purchase, you automatically earn a commission!
