What is an Affiliate?

An Affiliate is someone who is involved in Affiliate Marketing, through an Affiliate Program. Affiliate programs are extension of online merchant’s marketing and promotions, where they pay only on a Cost-Per Performance Basis.

This usually means that you are only paid when someone buys a product, such as the Amazon Associates program, or when someone signs up for a program. However, there are many other type of Affiliate Programs out there, including those that pay when someone fills out a form (Cost-Per-Lead) or those that pay when someone Downloads a product or game. (Cost-Per Download)

While there are many, many different types of Affiliate Programs, we highly recommend that you look at our CPA Affiliate Network Reviews and find a great company to work with.
