What is an affiliate program?
Affiliate Marketing is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays a commission to an external source for traffic or sales generated from its referrals. It is a performance-based advertising program in which online publishers, or affiliates, can earn a commission on orders submitted by customers they refer to us. They can do this by creatively integrating products or content into their site through blogs, product reviews, banner advertisements, etc.
How does an affiliate program work?
After you create an affiliate account, you may use a custom generated link to refer visitors to our website. When someone clicks through to our website via these links, they are tracked for a few days until they place an order. When an order is placed by such a visitor, the order is associated with your account as the referring source and your affiliate account is credited a commission for the order. So the more visitors you refer and the more of those visitors who convert into customers - the more you get paid!
How does the tracking work?
The tracking process is simple. Once someone clicks the custom generated affiliate link from you account, a tracking "cookie" is planted on their computer. When that same visitor completes a purchase on our website, the cookie notifies our system and a commission is applied to that affiliate's account. The cookie exists on that user's computer for a few days, so the purchase does not have to be completed in the same visit.
How long does a visitor have to make a purchase?
Each visitor that was referred through an affiliate link has only a few days to complete a purchase. Otherwise the cookie will automatically delete from the visitor's computer and the affiliate account won't be credited.
What are the commission rates?
Each account has a different commission rate. They are determined based on account performance.
