What is an affiliate link?
An affiliate link is a special and exclusive link, that is generated for every offer. Affiliate links are created by affiliate network and include a tracking code, which is important to identify a guest. These links also include the affiliate’s unique ID, which is important to identify an affiliate on the network.
So, when the guest buys the advertiser’s product or service, the affiliate, who transferred the visitor to a web page, can receive a commission.
It is a process of transferring web traffic to the merchant’s web page.
