The downside is that Shopify is only appealing for people who have physical or digital products to sell and have a need to set up a Shopify store, including site hosting, payment processing, and all the other services offered by Shopify. This can significantly narrow the appeal for this affiliate program. But if you can distinguish yourself by educating people on how to use Shopify, how it can benefit their business, and/or make them money, you could potentially big money via the affiliate program. Add in the 2 x monthly fee commission rate, and landing just a few sales of their mid-tier and top-tier products can result in significant earnings.
We love and back our product 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take pretty seriously. We know you’ll understand. 🙂 But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.
5.1. We may modify any of the terms and conditions in this Agreement at any time at our sole discretion. In such event, you will be notified by email, (sent to the email address provided in the course of your registration with the Company). Modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the payment procedures and the AWeber Affiliate Program rules. If any modification is unacceptable to you, you may terminate this Agreement. Your continued participation in the Program following the email of the change notice and the new Agreement on our site will indicate your agreement to the changes.
Of course, there can be downsides to working with affiliate marketing companies, just as there are if you work with an advertising firm or SEO agency. Partnering with a third party can be daunting at first as it may feel like you’re handing over control to someone else. There’s also the question of whether they’ll generate the results you’re looking for or fail to deliver. Likely there is an upfront investment to secure affiliate payouts (like an agency fee and your pay-out wallet in commission junction), but as we discussed above, it’s in their interest for your campaign to succeed.  Both teams have skin in the game which makes it highly unlikely that they’ll let you down especially if they have a track record of recruiting good affiliates.
Hi Jamie, awesome content that is very helpful esp with the resources, links and the rich discussions. Want to start e-commerce and blog for money…selling others products, want to go full on with this, tired of the daily routine crunch working for others. I live in a developing country (PNG) that has high internet costs (work still in progress with getting rates down…) so will see how I go with your posts. Any advise? Don’t have a website yet, have to build one I guess….

The landing page displaying the personalized discount code is configured to prevent search engines from crawling the page. This is important, because we don’t want customers coming to this page organically – only affiliate referrals should see this page. To prevent search engines from crawling the page, we added a “Disallow” line in our robots.txt file and the land page also has a line of html that reads:

Rather than paying for clicks and impressions, what these companies want is an overarching view of their data and costs, as well as the chance to earn incremental revenue. They are combining marketing, business development, and other partnerships that are based on cost per action and tied to their overall goals. They expect transparency, achieved through centralized reporting, automated payments, and a standard operating framework.

Spam is the biggest threat to organic search engines, whose goal is to provide quality search results for keywords or phrases entered by their users. Google's PageRank algorithm update ("BigDaddy") in February 2006—the final stage of Google's major update ("Jagger") that began in mid-summer 2005—specifically targeted spamdexing with great success. This update thus enabled Google to remove a large amount of mostly computer-generated duplicate content from its index.[29]
Search engine optimization, or SEO, attempts to improve a website's organic search rankings in SERPs by increasing the website content's relevance to search terms. Search engines regularly update their algorithms to penalize poor quality sites that try to game their rankings, making optimization a moving target for advertisers.[51][52] Many vendors offer SEO services.[24]:22
Shopify is probably the most popular e-commerce solutions provider out there, but because there are so many products and options, newcomers can easily get confused. If you believe your audience has products to sell and could benefit from Shopify’s products and are able to elucidate the benefits of signing up for Shopify, you can definitely earn some big money with their affiliate program.
Previously known as Affiliate Window but now officially referred to as “AWIN” after acquiring Zanox a few years ago, this network claims to work with over 13,000 active advertisers and 100,000 publishers (affiliates). Founded in Germany, AWIN’s merchants primarily hail from Europe (especially Great Britain) although the U.S. network is growing rapidly. AWIN is currently active in 11 countries.
Because users have different operating systems, web browsers[84] and computer hardware (including mobile devices and different screen sizes), online ads may appear to users differently from how the advertiser intended, or the ads may not display properly at all. A 2012 comScore study revealed that, on average, 31% of ads were not "in-view" when rendered, meaning they never had an opportunity to be seen.[85] Rich media ads create even greater compatibility problems, as some developers may use competing (and exclusive) software to render the ads (see e.g. Comparison of HTML 5 and Flash).
Many consumers have reservations about online behavioral targeting. By tracking users' online activities, advertisers are able to understand consumers quite well. Advertisers often use technology, such as web bugs and respawning cookies, to maximizing their abilities to track consumers.[60]:60[95] According to a 2011 survey conducted by Harris Interactive, over half of Internet users had a negative impression of online behavioral advertising, and forty percent feared that their personally-identifiable information had been shared with advertisers without their consent.[96][97] Consumers can be especially troubled by advertisers targeting them based on sensitive information, such as financial or health status.[95] Furthermore, some advertisers attach the MAC address of users' devices to their 'demographic profiles' so they can be retargeted (regardless of the accuracy of the profile) even if the user clears their cookies and browsing history.[citation needed]
The first key factor that distinguish a successful app affiliate network is its relationships with advertisers and ability to provide publishers with high quality traffic offers in lots of geo locations and verticals. The second one is the level of customer support, educational materials providing and training to help affiliate marketers to generate more revenue. Finally, providing additional incentives in a form of a loyal program, rewards and contests often makes affiliates decision to prefer specific app affiliate network.

When promoting your affiliate program, make sure you’re including information that potential promoters want to know. Generally, the most influential parts of your program are the product/service relevancy, affiliate program reputation , and affiliate network or tracking platform. Make sure you include that information when you promote your program.


We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection in a timely manner. We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your website is not suitable for the Affiliate Program for any reason, including, but not limited to, its inclusion of content that is, in our opinion, unlawful or otherwise violates our Acceptable Use Policy.
This is simplified, according to the IAB. Exchanges may try to unload unsold ("remnant") space at low prices through other exchanges. Some agencies maintain semi-permanent pre-cached bids with ad exchanges, and those may be examined before going out to additional demand side platforms for bids. The process for mobile advertising is different and may involve mobile carriers and handset software manufacturers.[46]

There are several ways to find an affiliate program that provides offers for a specific business vertical. The key is to apply multiple techniques to eliminate any possible bias. The place to begin your research would be Affiliate Networks directories, such as the one that mobyaffiliates hosts. To evaluate multiple networks you may pick up from a directory, you need to find people’s feedback on these networks on places like Quora, online forums and LinkedIn. Make sure you tried multiple search queries on these resources to find as much feedback as possible, avoid comments that are strictly negative or positive, genuine feedback is usually in between these two extremes. On LinkedIn you can find both affiliate networks company employees to ask questions and groups dedicated to affiliate industry. But again – don’t expect an affiliate network employees to share with you any cons of the company they work for, approach these people to figure out in general – do they provide offers for a particular vertical or not.
As Target is the second-largest general retailer in the United States, their affiliate program is primarily for American bloggers or publishers who can route visitors to relevant products. Overall, the program works much like Amazon’s does in that publishers (bloggers) get a small commission on sales, but Target’s gigantic product base (over one million items) and high brand recognition make their affiliate program a great option for influencers.

Given that I am still in reading and preparation phase, I am mainly interested to overlap my niche with real life interests so I could have motivation to produce content on regular basis. Two that I am highly interested are PC parts and Fitness. I am aware they are too general subjects with lot of sites doing the same, but my idea is to produce constant review on PC parts, Laptops, Mobile devices, Accessories all in different categories, create lists like top5 or 10 under XX budget etc. Similar approach I would use if I I decide to go with Fitness path and divide content training advice, review of fat loss methods, supplementation, nutrition etc. I am aware that this will be a long journey and that it can pass few months before sales start to kick in and that’s the risk I am ready to take. My questions are:
The phrase, "Affiliates are an extended sales force for your business", which is often used to explain affiliate marketing, is not completely accurate. The primary difference between the two is that affiliate marketers provide little if any influence on a possible prospect in the conversion process once that prospect is directed to the advertiser's website. The sales team of the advertiser, however, does have the control and influence up to the point where the prospect either a) signs the contract, or b) completes the purchase.

This the just normal economics of internet marketing coming into play. Affiliates are not really used to “normal” profit margins in a traditional business sense. We talk about 200-300% ROI per day like it’s normal. When you’re on native advertising for affiliate marketing campaigns, you’ll find that the more you scale, the more your ROI goes down (but your overall profit goes up).
