    How do affiliate sales get recorded.

    If I have a landing page for signups and others send traffic there, how do they get the credit?

    Looking for the simplest method.

    Hi Don,

    Typically an affiliate link as a snippet appended to the URL.
    This snippet signifies who the sale would be credited to.

    You can set this up through a platform that does it for you, like ClickBank.
    Or you can use plugins if you use WordPress.

    I wish I could offer more info here, but I’ve always been on the affiliate end.
    Ie: they give me a URL that tracks my sales and promotion.

    I’ve only looked into promoting to other affiliates.

    Hope this helps, at least a bit 🙂

    If you don’t have a ton of affiliates, you might consider doing it manually as well.

    You can set up a different page and payment button for each affiliate and then pay them accordingly.

    Hey Don-
    You have to be using an affiliate software or network. That’s why so many people use W+ and JVZoo…because they are two easy networks to use that have the software built in that records the cookies when someone visits so they know where the sale came from. There are tons of affiliate networks to sell your stuff through that will do the tracking for you with their software or you can find your own (much harder to do).
    Hope it works out for ya.

    Each vendor has their own way of doing this.

    Some give you a recognizable link that shows their domain first with the part that applies to you appended to the end.

    Others “cloak” your information so that the buyer never sees your name. When that happens, it appears to the buyer that they are getting the product directly from the vendor, but you still get the credit.

    Thing to do is to decide which products you want to sell, and the learn about the affiliate programs that each has.

    Hope this helps.
