    Yep, just like what I posted to your LS question. You have to apply to each merchant and when approved and get links to those merchants.

    Are you asking about promoting the merchant's products or the merchant's affiliate program?

    Yes, I'd like to promote the individual merchant affiliate programs within Share a Sale. I know I could create a custom link to their affiliate page. I just don't know whether I'd get credit for the affiliate sign-up doing it this way. Does anybody know? Thanks June

    Ah, you're wanting to get paid for signing up affiliates to merchants. I think that works more with indy merchants, not merchants on networks.

    Check the individual merchants that you are interested in. I have seen this on some of the merchants but I can't remember which ones.

    If they don't offer it....ask them. Maybe it is something they have never thought about. They should be able to create a link for you .

    Good Luck

    Thanks Porkchop, I'll do that. I've actually seen this somewhere with some of the networks where it goes to the merchant first, then to the main affiliate program to join. Thanks everyone for your help.

    what ur refering to is a second tier.
    ie if an affiliate signs up cause he came from your link then you get a % of what he sells. I doubt that a merchant would pay you for affiliate sign ups.

    NOt all merchants offer second tier.

    In theory, you could use the SAS signup affiliate link to cookie them and use the merchants signup page as the urllink, but you would need to test it to make sure the cookie stays behind. I think SAS pays $1 for new affiliate signups.

    I guess one quick way to find out which ones do is to see which ones use 3rd parties:

    I read that one yesterday, and now i'm wondering if I should discontinue using 3rd party programs - if you know what I mean.

    and this one gives me goose bumps: http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=76339
