We have sought to eradicate the problem of inconsistent payment schedules and long wait periods by offering a weekly payment solution via PayPal.
We also offer a monthly Direct Deposit option for our Australian affiliates.
Our affiliate support team and managers have extensive experience in affiliate marketing and are equipped to offer advice and point out opportunities.
We encourage all staff to start affiliate campaigns and gain firsthand experience of the industry to be better prepared for all manner of questions.
We have an ever-growing range of merchants with a large focus on quality and ability to convert.
Our portfolio is always increasing in large, trusted brands that have a consumer following and a history of good customer service and performance.
There are many ways affiliates can refer their customers or readers through to merchants, from display advertising, data feeds, dynamic tools, video content and high converting coupon codes.
Banners were on of the first forms of affiliate creatives available and still the most widely used across any network.
All merchants have a wide range of banners that must conform loosely to the IAB banner size guidelines. This ensures consistency.
Data or product feeds are increasing in their popularity for affiliates with the invention of feed aggregator and display products like Datafeedr that make the process simpler.
Not only do we offer product feeds that are updated daily but also coupon/voucher feeds for large-scale coupon code sites.
Text links are common way to refer traffic to your merchants and we have made them available to all affiliates - but with a difference.
You can now use our deep link generator to easily create trackable URL‘s to any part of a merchants domain. Giving you the freedom to link where you want to pages that are relevant to your users.
Beyond the tried an tested creatives and linking methods most affiliates are accustomed to, we have also thrown in a few new ones, some exclusive to Commission Factory and all unique in the Australian marketplace.
Affiliate marketing and it‘s methods are changing all the time. So we wanted to ensure that a marriage between the online and offline was possible.
With Commission Factory you can generate a QR code at any time for your offline promotions.
Video has such an important role in the sales funnel and in increasing conversion rates.
From the affiliate dashboard affiliates can access a range of pre-created videos supplied by their merchants. These include buttons, hover text and descriptions and more importantly can link through to their merchant using affiliate links.
To provide material for content writers and bloggers we have included an image gallery where you can download folders of images supplied by your merchants.
This provides a wealth of material for promotion and high quality product reviews.
We have developed a Message Centre specifically for assistance in developing long lasting business relationships with your merchants.
All correspondence with merchants and Commission Factory comes through here and is an amazing tool for business development.
