What is the Status of Ikea’s Affiliate Program

Currently Ikea has no public affilaite program. It is possible they have some revenue sharing partners based on some ads and disclosures we found.

History

Ikea used to have an affiliate program with Awin. They discountued it when they announced a new program with TradeDoubler in early 2018. There was a Tradedoubler press release in July of 2018 …

Ikea on Amazon

Ikea is a great brand so it is easy to see whey people would want to represent them as an affilaite. I have often seen Ikea products on Amazon but per Ikea these are all third-party resellers who have no relationship with Ikea …

“IKEA is not selling products on Amazon or any third party sites at this time. Any IKEA product on Amazon now is being sold by a reseller. IKEA has no relationship with them …”

These are likely FBA sellers who are doing retail arbitrage. This is a very common way to sell on Amazon as an FBA. You purchase products on sale or being closed out. Then list them at full retail in your Amazon listing. 

If you have an Amazon Associate account, this is teh best way to refer your visitors to Ikea products. The fact that they are generally shipped unassembled in flat boxes makes shipping and receiveing a breeze.

About Ikea

I always wondered about the IKEA name. As affilaites we are always on the hunt for short brandable names. So where did the name IKEA come from? Turns out is is derived from the founders initials and hometown (Ingvar Kamprad Elmtaryd Agunnaryd)

Ikea is an amazing company that has carved out a huge niche for the company. With  more than 400 stores in 49 markets in Europe, North America, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia tehy are a leader in the low-cost furniture and housewares market. .They are growing quickly and now have expansion plans in South America and SE Asia …

“On Monday, Bloomberg conducted an interview with Inter Ikea Chief Executive Officer Torbjorn Loof on the company’s future expansion plans. According to Loof, South America and Southeast Asia are the top two regions on IKEA’s expansion radar after its arrival in India and Latvia this year.

He confirmed that in Southeast Asia, Vietnam and Philippines are the next in line to get IKEA stores, after Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia.

There products are famouse for the simple elegant scandanavian design and for being broken down flat, ready for a quick assembly. This is also appealing for people who plan to move. There products include everything for the home at this point; beds, chairs, carpets, lighting, cabinets, countertops and more.

For anyone not familiar here’s a video to give you a taste …

Conclusion

Ikea is a great company with Iconic products. What new couple making a home doesn’t shop with Ikea. An added bonus is the assembly is a good test of your relationship!

We hope that they restart the program. It would surely be a winner.
