    Cashback website
    Hi everyone

    Im new to affiliate marketing

    I was wondering were do all this cashback sites find the stores. Is there a place where they are all together and they write what commision they give if you sell their product, or do they contact the stores one by one? What about the hot deals they make where do they find them?

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Starting a Cash Back site is quite the undertaking. You need to forge a relationship with each merchant which means partnering with multiple networks. You then have to manage all of the data and make sense of it, get the commission rates from each merchant, etc. The deals typically come from coupon feeds either from the network or the merchant.

    From there, you need a user system, a payment system, support staff to handle the mountain of questions from users, and finally a marketing budget. There are some HUGE players in the space, so expect fierce competition.

    Why do I know all of this? We did it as an experiment a couple years ago. It was a worthy experiment, it made us add new features to our api, and gave us a lot of insight. The site we setup was thenetpool.com. It hasn't been updated in a while. We mainly use it as a technology showcase. Every feature of the site was built using our free api. You can grab the top merchant, brand, and product data by sending queries to our trends api. You get the product data from our product api, coupons from our coupon api, and commission rates /merchant logos from our merchant api. We got rid of almost all of the initial hard work, but you still need to think about payment systems and marketing if you decide to get into it.

    Hi

    Thanks for your answer

    I dont live in the us, and where i live thats pretty much no competition in regarding cashback websites. So i dont think thats gonne be problem.

    If people as questions i hire someone to answer.
    The payments shouldent be a problem ill use paypall or wire transfer.

    I hired a serious company to make the website for me they have done that before so the tracing shoulden be a problem. They are gonne be done with project in the next 2 weeks.

    My problem are the shops. I dont want to spend a lifetime adding shops, so thats why im trying to find out an easy way to add them.

    The problem is that i cant find anyone to hire who has experience in cashback websites in here.
