So I've had a few google searches on affiliates and it seems quite a big and confusing situation. Just recently I've had a mate who is down and out and needs some cash and I thought, well I'm happy to split profits from sales they could potentially make 50/50. I'm not very good at the whole programming side of things, but is there a free app for Shopify that allows you to create your own affiliate program? If not are there ways to create your own affiliate program to boost sales on Shopify whilst also helping a mate out?
There are apps that let you set up an affiliate program on your own store, though they are all paid for apps, and may not be what you are looking for- https://apps.shopify.com/search/query?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=affiliate
