BuilderBooks Retail Affiliate Program Overview
Join the more than 360 HBAs participating in the program.
- Additional revenue for your association
- Increased traffic and visibility for your website and your association
- Enhanced HBA website value for your members
- Low-maintenance program
As a BuilderBooks Retail Affiliate, you receive a referral fee — 10% of all qualifying revenue generated one of two ways:
- Someone makes a purchase from BuilderBooks after clicking on a link from your site that includes your Retail Affiliate Code; or
- Directly from the BuilderBooks website when your HBA is chosen as the source during the checkout process.
When you sign up for the program, you will receive a unique Retail Affiliate Code. Include this code as part of any URL on your website that links to a BuilderBooks product. Sales are then tracked from that “tagged” link.
Referral fees are processed annually and royalty checks are distributed in March of the subsequent year. However, if the fees payable to you are less than $20 for any calendar year, we will hold payment until the total amount due is at least $20 or more.

Retail Affiliate Storefront Program
The Retail Affiliate Storefront Program gives your HBA an opportunity to promote the essential publications needed to manage a builder’s business directly on your website with a coded link to BuilderBooks.com.
The Association Bookstore Program is linked to the NAHB BuilderBooks website and allows state and local associations to set up/upload your very own Bookstore with the use of your association “unique” code and link.
Association Library Program
The Association Library Program allows HBAs to be a source of information for their members by having the books on hand at their association. Here at NAHB BuilderBooks, we receive calls from state and local associations requesting information found in many of our published titles.
Our recommendation is to set up an in-house library.
With a Pre-Packaged Association Library, associations have quick answers to questions members might have on topics such as:
- Accounting & Estimating
- Business Management
- Codes, Regulations & Legal Issues
- Construction Management
- Customer Service
- 55+ Housing
- Green Building
- Land Development
- Sales & Marketing
- Home Buyer/Home Owner
Associations who already have libraries include Carteret County HBA, Treasure Cost HBA, Greater Atlanta HBA and HBA of Billings, Inc., HBA of Greater Tulsa, just to name a few.
The Pre-Packaged Association Library gives HBA a 50% discount off the retail price of selected titles published by NAHB BuilderBooks. So, for under $1,000 plus shipping and handling, you can build an in-house wealth of knowledge for your members.
