Affiliate marketing consists of partnering up with a more established e-commerce entrepreneur in your niche and asking them to promote your products to their audience. In return, you’d give them a percentage of revenue from each sale they generate.
The affiliate program is a program where store owners invite affiliates to promote their products in exchange for a commission.
Once an affiliate is added to your store, the admin can add the affiliate referral link for the affiliate. The added referral link will be displayed in the affiliate panel. The affiliate can start promoting your store using a unique URL generated. The key mentioned while adding an affiliate is unique for each affiliate, hence each affiliate has its own unique URL through which it can start promoting your store.
If an affiliate 'A' has a key 'uniquekey1' then the URL which he/she needs to promote your store to earn commission/revenue will be: http://yourstore.storehippo.com/?ref=uniquekey1
And similarly, if an affiliate 'B' has a key 'uniquekey2' then the URL which he/she needs to promote your store to earn commission/revenue will be: http://yourstore.storehippo.com/?ref=uniquekey2
The Affiliate form is one of the built-in forms and is used to control the affiliate registration on the storefront.
You can manage affiliates in the Affiliates section which has been added to the admin left panel. You can add new sellers or check the details of registered sellers in this section.
You can define groups of affiliates to perform specific operations on different affiliate groups. You can create groups of affiliates in the Affiliate groups section.
Affiliate ledger rules are created to define the commission to be provided to the affiliate on every order. Multiple conditions can be specified while adding an affiliate ledger rule.
The ledger of all affiliates is maintained under the Affiliate ledger which can be accessed through the Affiliate ledger section.
StoreHippo provides an easy-to-use interface for your affiliates. When your affiliate login to your StoreHippo admin, they are directed to the StoreHippo Affiliate Panel. The affiliate can share the referral link, view, and withdraw the balance from the affiliate panel.
