How are sales tracked - how do I know I get to correct commission?
We track sales using cookies. We set a cookie in the customers' browser when they click a banner from your site or affiliate link that you have shared with them. Then when the customer completes a purchase we use that information to match the order placed with your affiliate account. If a sale takes place within 30 days from the time the customer clicked a link on your website, it is attributed to you. So the order does not have to happen the same day for you to get your commission.
How does it work for me?
After you've been approved you will get access to your affiliate account where you can select which banner(s) you think might work well for you. You will also get trackable affiliate links that you can share with potential customers (for instance through social media).
When things start moving for you there is also a set of tools that you can use to track sales and how the various banners/links perform. Looking at these numbers (visits, conversions, revenues, etc.) will help you identify what affiliate actions are performing best for you.
How do you get banners and/or links for my site?
When you log in to you affiliate account, the first thing you will see is your dashboard with a summary of the activity on your account.
There's also a home page link displayed that you can use this to inform potential customers via email, social networks etc. Using this link will ensure that you get your affiliate commission.
Clicking on the "Creatives" link in the main menu will take you to the banners/creatives currently available for you to use. Click on the creative that you think might work for you, you can chose as many as you like.
The small popup will give you the option to copy HTML code that you can past on your site/blog. Depending on what technology you are using you will have to go about this in a different way. If you are, for instance, using WordPress then this code could be pasted into a text widget, maybe in a sidebar or header section of your blog theme.
Another option is to copy the shown under.... "Link" and use that to inform potential customers via email, social networks etc. Using this link will ensure that you get your affiliate commission.
