Affiliate Program

Earn money while helping to promote ethical tourism.

Our affiliate program is about sharing economic uplift.

We are growing a community of travel businesses that care deeply about guest experience and impact. We don't work like traditional mass-market travel sites. Instead, we offer a collective of travel experiences enhanced by our Radius membership program. By joining Painted Circle's affiliate program, you can earn money from us whenever you connect your audience to our membership program.

Why you should join Painted Circle's Affiliate Program

Painted Circle was founded to be an alternative to mass-market travel sites. We are built by tour operators, and built for sharing great value with travelers who care about impact and meaningful experiences. Our affiliate program lets you be part of making travel a force for good.


Earn 15% on every membership you connect

And there's no limit on the number of memberships you can connect.   

Feel good about what you are promoting

We pay our affiliates from the funds we make selling our membership, not by passing costs to our partners.

Support a nonprofit

Increase your own commission to 17% by linking to a nonprofit - they will also receive 10% as a donation from us! 

Cookies are for eating. Period.

Your earnings are tracked with a unique coupon we will share with you - that means no cookie expiration, no scary tracking, and an easier way for you to share value with your audience.

Being inclusive is more than just talk for us

Painted Circle is a proudly LGBT+ founded business.  While we all have different journeys in life, we identify with the need we all feel for inclusion, and the power we create when we embrace diversity.


The travel industry, while typically forward-looking, still struggles with delivering true equity.  The reality is that not everyone feels welcome when they travel, and many who could benefit from starting travel businesses are not equally supported within the existing tourism ecosystem.


We feel that equity can be built through collaboration.  Our decision to work without sales commissions is not just a gimmick - we feel it is how we can welcome a more diverse range of travel providers and unique voices into our platform.  It's also how we think we can help more traveler money stay local, stay with hard-working founders, and better benefit communities.  There is strength in community, and we are focused on collaboration rather than financial gatekeeping.
