What is an Affiliate Program?
Products and services of sellers (merchants) can be advertised by distributors (affiliates) too, through Affiliate Programs. Distributors receive a provision for every product or service that has been successfully advertised. The amount of provisions is calculated taking into account some criteria such as advertising period, click, per thousand ads, acquired contacts or received orders.
