Each affiliate program is different. Some programs pay on a Cost Per Click (CPC) basis, others on a Cost Per Action (CPA) basis. But no matter what the structure of payouts is, most programs offer publishers that deliver large volumes of clicks and a high sales volume a higher CPC and higher sales commission percentages (CPA). However, it is hard for a single publisher to access these higher payouts. The good news though, is that if you are a VigLink publisher you automatically earn the highest payouts. Thousands of publishers are in our network and use VigLink on their site. In aggregate, they generate a huge sales volume each month, so VigLink typically receives higher payouts (on a CPC and CPA basis) and has access to some of the highest payment tiers available.
This means more cash in your pocket each month.
Exact commission percentages vary by advertiser, but a good example to consider is Amazon. Their payment tiers are broken down by the number of items a publisher helps ship in a given month. If a publisher ships between 1 and 6 items they earn a 4% commission on each of those sales.If a publisher helps ship over 3,131 items, they earn a 8.5% commission. It’s difficult for a single publisher to help ship over 3,000 items in a single month. But due to VigLink’s size, it’s easy for us to. So, all of our publishers benefit from an 8.5% commission on each of their sales. So, even with our 25% share, publishers earn more with VigLink than they can on their own.
Nice, right? If you aren’t accessing top payout tiers, make the switch to VigLink and start earning more. We’ll save you time — and help you earn more.
