    Is this considered as valid affiliate sale?
    Hello,

    This is my second post here and I am learning abc of affiliate marketing at this stage, so excuse me if this is stupid question.

    As my first product, I have picked up flex belt product. Today, I noticed that, on official site of flex belt (https://secure.flexbelt.ca/order/?w=flexbelt.ca&flid=&, if you enter order details and try to close the page, it gives 25% discount and redirects you to another link.

    Say, I have embedded flex belt affiliate link in my site. Someone visits my site, clicks on affiliate link and then gets 25% discount offer popup and place an order from that link. Is it still considered as valid affiliate sale and I will be paid for this sale?

    Logically, it seems like valid affiliate sale but as I have just started here, like to validate this.

    Thanks!

    It may depend on how they are implementing the 25% discount offer. There are companies which offer this service as a way of closing a sale that was about to disappear, but if they are successful, they get credit for the sale rather than the original affiliate. Other merchants have their own in-house pop-up offering the deal and still pay the affiliate commission. So the answer to your question is ... it depends.

    Ask the affiliate manager for an official answer. If the answer is yes, it does qualify as an affiliate sale, then if possible do a test purchase.

    Thanks Jeannine and Sam. In this case, official website of flex belt offers 25% discount popup when user is about to leave the site.

    I will surely ask affiliate manager for the answer and confirm with test sale as appropriate.
