GCU Affiliates Basics

GCU is part of a larger organization called BigDates Solutions.

Originally BigDates was a reminder company providing online retailers with reminder services in order to drive repeat business. Part of this effort involved sending greeting cards. From this sprung Greeting Card Universe, a site tailored to Greeting Card Artists providing them a free online store and allowing BigDates to build a larger variety of greeting card offerings to shoppers.

In order to drive more greeting card sales, several affiliate sites were created to compliment the reminder services. Details on these can be found here.

All of your GCU cards are also hosted on these affiliate sites and you will receive the same commission for sales on those sites. As you add new cards at GCU, the same cards appear soon after on these affilaite sites.
