Wondering how you can get free samples of those new, amazing, or viral TikTok products you've been wanting to try? As a content creator on TikTok, you can request and receive samples from sellers who offer them. We make it simple and easy to experience products, then tell your followers what you loved, what you didn't, and why they must get one for themselves.
Why should I request free samples?
Because they're free! Who doesn't love free? Once you find the products you want to try, you'll get to show your followers why they will love them as much as you do. More content also means more views!
But first, a few rules (just a few, we promise!):
  • You must have a minimum of 5,000 followers,
  • Show your followers all about the samples you received in a short-form video that's posted for at least three (3) days or in a LIVE that's up to 10 minutes long.
  • You must post sample content within 14 days of domestic ship date.
Tip: Don't forget to include the product link in your content!
Ready to get your freebies? Here are three ways:
  • Free samples
  • Sample campaigns
  • Sample coupons

Free Samples
Free samples are just that — a free sample of something you'd like to try from a TikTok Shop. Once you find a product you'd like to check out, go to the product detail page to see if the seller is offering free samples. There will be a banner listed that looks like this:

Sample Campaigns
Sample campaigns are affiliate campaigns promoted across TikTok Shop where you can get lots of free samples, test and review them, then post your video for your followers to see. Once you generate a few sales, you can earn rewards. (Hint: more freebies!)
