ShoutOut provides a signup form for individuals to join your network. The link to your signup page may be found under the Affiliates/Influencers area of ShoutOut's main menu titled Signup Page. If you're finding that your signup link is directing users back to your website you may have disabled it in ShoutOut admin > Settings > Preferences > Remove Signup Option.

ShoutOut's standard signup form may be changed to capture additional information. You can customize data collected in ShoutOut admin > Settings > Manage Fields. If you're wanting even more control over your signup form (perhaps to pre-approve affiliates) you may wish to design your own form, have the details emailed to you, and if the affiliate is approved enter their details into ShoutOut. You can have ShoutOut automatically send them their access details by ticking the option when saving their record. 

Some merchants charge affiliates to join their network by creating a membership product in their store or a starter kit of products that first requires purchasing. Using your own customized form provides you unlimited options following the details outlined above.
