    Learning Shareasale lingo
    I'm just getting started with affiliate sales as a way of adding income to my existing website. Registered with Shareasale today and although it has been very easy for me to find and register with appropriate merchants, I am having a little trouble figuring out what terms like "7 day EPC" and "7 Day Renewal" and "Datafeeds" mean. Is there someplace I go to get basic, beginner user info?

    Welcome to ABW BonnieBee,
    There is a search button at the top of the page that is very useful also.
    EPC stands for Earning Per Click, 7 Day Renewal not really sure what that is myself.
    I'll have to research that one. Datafeeds is a list of the merchants products.
    Hope this helps get you started.
    Where's the Great Life of Affiliate Marketing Hiding?

    You've probably referring to a "7 Day Reversal Ratio", or the percentage of affiliate orders that was reversed by the merchant in the course of the past 7 days.

    "Datafeeds" are essentially files (.CSV, .XML, .XLS or any other type) that list information on the merchant's products (such as product ID, product name, description, URL to product's thumbnail image, close-up image, price, stock availability, etc.) and allow you to import them into affiliate websites to put together stores of your own. If you're a novice in this, tools like PopShops and GoldenCAN come in extremely handy.

    ...also WebMerge. ShareASale Edition is well worth the money.

    Shareasale datafeeds are csv files that are pipe delimited. They are, as noted above, links to the products, and images, to all the products a merchant has. You can also access the products in the datafeeds via the Shareasale Make A Page tool, listed under "Get Links".
