    Working with a meta affiliate
    Are there any meta affiliates (for lack of a better term) -- companies that will automatically create affiliate links on your site so that you don't have to be a member of an affiliate program?

    I'm thinking of a site that would automatically create links when product names appear. They could link to say, Amazon, or whoever. They would be the Amazon affiliate; not me. But they would pay me for traffic on a PPC or some other basis.

    I looked into GoldenCAN and PopShops, but they require you to be a member of the affiliate programs and enter your affiliate ID.

    Actually, the reason I posted it is that it is a way to avoid creating nexus. I believe it was in the appropriate forum, and I think most people following that forum would agree. Perhaps I should have been more explicit about that. Can you please move it back?

    No merchant is going to create links for you on your site. You have to create your own links on your site and you have to be a member of the merchant you are creating links for or you will not be paid any commission by the merchant.

    Your question has nothing to do with taxes and does not belong in a tax forum.

    Why don't you start a thread asking which merchants are not terminating NC merchants and some merchants here will respond to you and you can use their programs for your site.

    That's clearly not what he's looking for, as he clarified himself quite clearly.

    To the original poster... "viglink" might be what you are looking for.

    You can also look at skimlinks which I installed on my forum (but am removing). There was a Turkish company at ASE11 that had a contextual advertising tool that look promising but it was a 5th click model similiar to GoldenCAN.

    Thanks all. Viglink is looking good so far.

    Chuck, why are you pulling Skimlinks (if you don't mind me asking)?

    I used it for tracking on my forum here and got some concerns from affiliates. It is slowing down page loads and working on internal tracking for all forums.

    With viglinks you still have to create links (to appropriate) products in place. Viglink alters the link.

    As for the 'nexus' part. Viglink recently stopped affiliating amazon links for people in nexus affected states. Although they may still be doing it for different programs in those states.
