The only resource about customer service you will ever need.
You’ve probably read about the various benefits of using affiliate software for your business. Doing so will make your partners happier, give you more control over your affiliate program, and ultimately generate more income.
That’s all theory, though – how do you get started in practice? Once you buy a subscription for your favorite piece of affiliate marketing software, it’s time to put it to good use.
Here’s how to integrate your affiliate software with your existing website or eCommerce store.
Like many SaaS solutions, you can install affiliate software yourself if you’re the website owner or admin. Then, you simply have to copy and paste a few lines of code into your WordPress backend, and the affiliate app will start working.
This is an excellent approach, but, unfortunately, it’s not ideal. Here are some issues that can arise:
So, this approach is only ideal for a small percentage of affiliate software users. Even though it involves “just copying and pasting a few lines of code, “ remember that just a few extra letters in code can ruin an entire website.
The simpler the website, the easier it is to carry out the integration on your own.
Any good affiliate software provider will give you the option of installing the software on your website, eCommerce platform, or other custom-made solution. All you have to do is get in touch with their customer support. They will arrange for someone to log into your website and fully set up the affiliate software for you. We offer this feature at PostAffiliatePro, too – when you sign up, just send an integration request to us, and we’ll install our app on your website. Again, this process is entirely free.
Having experts integrate your affiliate software for you has a few benefits:
Having said all that, it’s a much better idea to have the company that sells your chosen affiliate software solution integrate it into your existing system rather than trying to do so yourself.
If you want your affiliate software company to integrate their software into your website, you’ll most likely have to provide them with some of your data, such as:
You may be worried that this is a bit of a risk. The truth is that all of this data is necessary for a smooth and efficient integration process. If you are still concerned, you can always provide guest login credentials that you can delete as soon as the integration is fully completed.
Still, want to do it yourself? You have every right to, but first, check out some of the things that may go wrong. There is always a chance that you could:
As mentioned, there are more potential troubles than benefits.
The best way to integrate your affiliate software is to ask the company that sells the software to set the system up for you.
