When sellers list a product for sale, they have the option of giving a commission to affiliate marketers who drive buyers to their products. This is a win-win for sellers and affiliates; the affiliate marketer earns a commission for setting up the sale, and the seller gets buyers that they might not have otherwise attracted. The amount of the affiliate earnings is set by the seller, as a flat rate, plus a percentage. This amount is set per product, so some products might have higher affiliate returns than others, even if they're sold by the same seller.
To get credit for sales at Scubbly, just append the "affid" variable to the querystring of any URL at Scubbly, with your ID number as the value.
You can attach an affid to any page on Scubbly.
All your account activity at Scubbly is reported in the same place. Whether you are a seller, buyer, or affiliate, any transactions that involve a balance of funds at Scubbly are visible in your Account.
Every page at Scubbly looks for a special variable named "affid" in the querystring - that's the ampersand-delimited name and value pairs that appear after the "?" in a URL. If an affid is found, Scubbly stores its value as a cookie in the user's browser, then redirects the browser to a new URL with the affid removed. This cookie persists for 30 days. When a user checks out and pays for their cart, Scubbly looks for that cookie. If the cookie is yours, then you are credited with affiliate earnings for all the sales in that transaction.
If you are a seller, you should always append your affid to links that you create to Scubbly. Then when someone buys your product (or anyone else's for that matter), you will be credited with the affiliate earnings for that sale. If you do not add the affid to your links, someone else's cookie may already be in the user's browser, and they will earn the affiliate credit for the sale, even though you were the one who drove that user to the Scubbly.
