Exciting Merchant Explorer Upgrade!

We’re excited to announce upgrades to one of our most popular tools: the VigLink Merchant Explorer. It will continue to serve as the portal for our publishers to discover information about VigLink’s network of 50,000+ merchants while boasting a number of new features inspired by your feedback. You can now:

Test a specific link for affiliation status

  • To provide comprehensive coverage to publishers, we partner with merchants offering various pricing models including CPA, CPC, or both. However, for CPC merchants, not all products can be affiliated. Therefore, we now offer an affiliation checker so that publishers will know with greater certainty whether a link will monetize. Navigate to a merchant’s record page and paste in any link and return the affiliation status—including a VigLink Anywhere link if it’s monetizable!

Add search parameters for customized results

  • The Merchant Explorer’s advanced search filters make it easy to find the best merchant to link to. You can filter by: category, pricing model (CPA or CPC), country, and campaign. You can also search Preferred Merchants to get higher commission rates.

Utilize the Merchant Explorer from a mobile device

  • We’re excited to introduce a new mobile-responsive design for the Merchant Explorer. Now you can explore merchants anytime, anywhere!
