    How do I charge?
    Hello

    I am new here and firstly want to say what a great community it is.

    I have a new site due to go online in a month. The site is for a niche market and I have a number of merchants ready to go via existing affiliate networks. I also have number of merchants that I contacted directly who are also ready to go, can supply datafeeds etc. I am assuming that they are not with an Affiliate Network due to cost and some of these site are kinda small but still (to my site anyway) are traffic worthy. My problem is that I want to hook them up with some kind of remuneration setup for referring customers - whether it be via CPA, CPC etc.

    What is the best way to do that? Keeping in mind I want to keep the cost down for them.

    Is there a third party system that can monitor the traffic and sales at a reasonable price? Or I just have to try and convince them to sign up to Affiliate Network?

    Thanks in advance

    Any ideas anyone?

    Or should this be posted elsewhere on ABW?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you

    I don't have an answer to your exact question but you could charge an up front fee, such as an "advertising" cost to be listed on your site. Give the merchants paying "up front" priority on the pages and they can track clicks and sales to see how it performs for them. If they feel it's worthwhile, they'll continue to "advertise."

    Good luck with your new site.
    Peace,

    If you want to keep cost down for them, send them to SAS. Easy for them to start, and low cost.

    SAS is a great starting point for any new merchant.

    But a valuable asset that any new merchant has is the fact that their products are new. So many products are pushed everywhere that although they have great brand awareness, they can lack real conversions and a unique proposition.

    Your merchants can contact some CPA networks directly and offer them an exclusive to get their product on the network and take advantage of the network support.

    But tread lightly here....some networks may then try and cut you out...It's sad ..but sometimes they don't play nice.

    Hit me up if you need more info..

    Best Regards
