When you join our free affiliate program, we’ll pay you commission on every product sale you refer. That means that if you know people who would need an Oktoberfest outfit or could benefit from any of Rare Dirndl products,, simply refer them (read below for the particulars), and you can make some significant money. WUNDERBAR!



An affiliate, associate or referral program is basically a revenue-sharing agreement between an expert with a product (us) and a person who knows others who could benefit from that product (you). We both make money and help others solve a problem that is hindering their progress.
