How Does The University Press Books Affiliate Program Work?
It is a simple and straightforward process. Once your application is approved, just log into your account and click on the affiliate center to generate the link to our website and copy and paste a block of HTML code into your website. (You can create a hyperlink to the product page for a book you are featuring on your website, or to the University Press Books home page. The choice is yours.) When a visitor to your website clicks on your University Press Books hyperlink, they will enter the University Press Books website, where they can order books, read interesting articles, get information about store events, and more. All books ordered directly by visitors that come to University Press Books by way of your website are tracked, so that you will receive a commission for each sale. The best part is that becoming an Affiliate of the University Press Books community costs you nothing!

Unfortunately, our on-line fulfillment team is also sheltering in place, which means despite previous announcements, we are NOT shipping orders until after we're again operational.
But you can still purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major publishing houses. Jut access the "EBOOKS/AUDIOBOOKS" menu link.
We’re riding eventualities as they unfold and cannot predict when the store will open and gatherings will resume. The Cafe Ohlone has cancelled dates through March 27th at least. Check their website for tentative dates and any further cancelations.
