Hello all, I'm interested in diving into affiliate marketing and want to get a reality check on expectations as well as a recommendation on an app to use. 

 

I want to invite a small group of people (three so far) to become affiliates. I want to provide a link to my affiliates that track customer purchases. I want those purchases to appear in a dashboard, showing me traffic by affiliate, customer purchases by affiliate, and allow me to set a kick-back percentage for said affiliates. I want it to take care of sending them monthly commission checks. If there are any tax forms required, I'd like those to be handled as well. 

 

Does such an app exist for Shopify Plus, and what would you recommend? I've seen Affiliatly Affiliate Marketing by Overcode, UpPromote by Secomapp, Refersion, and LeadDyno so far in my poking around. 

What are some shortcomings in affiliate programs to watch out for, other gotchas you wish you knew starting out?

Hi @choochoo75,

 

I suggest you try ConvertOut. Our Ambassador Affiliate Marketing app is the way to go for a quick and easy affiliate program setup. For affiliates and influencers, our app boasts advanced features for ease of use. Our app tracks all ambassador sales, selects tiers, generates code, and many more. The best part is that we have developed this app to be fully automated.

 

Almost all businesses can benefit from affiliate marketing! Affiliate marketing is great because you pay when you get results. Unlike paid ads, where you pay for views and clicks, but not revenue.

It also allows your top customers to start getting rewarded for being loyal promoters.


With ConvertOut, you can also stay in touch with your affiliates. Integrate Omnisend or Klaviyo to send all of your ambassadors’ custom emails. If you want to give it a try, install it for free here

Hey! This sounds really great. I also work on different affiliate programs.

For those curious I went with UpPromote. Of the ones I've tested it seemed to work best for my needs. I was able to invite my chosen affiliates to the program, set up a commission rate, integrate it with Shopify and Paypal to disburse commission payments, and handle things like providing coupon codes, trackable links, tracking of referrals, validation of sales, etc. They've become very valuable brand ambassadors.

Hallo ich verwende seit ein paar Tagen auch UpPromote und wollte fragen ob Sie wissen wie ich da die Umsatzsteuerberechnen muss bzw. wer die bezahlen muss. Also ich oder die Affiliates Partner?

Meine Erinnerung an den Einrichtungsprozess war, dass man wählen konnte, wer die Steuer zahlte. Ich habe mich entschieden, diese Verpflichtung den Mitgliedsorganisationen aufzuerlegen. Ich würde jedoch empfehlen, sich direkt an UpPromote zu wenden, um sicherzustellen, dass Ihre Entscheidung für Ihre Situation am besten geeignet ist.

Hey! 

 

I know this query is resolved but I wanted to answer this incase someone is seeking more solutions or opinions. 

 

So I have a small brand called She Can Hustle and we're still underway when it comes to setting up an online store for the products; I'm mostly selling through social media right now - but I'm already leveraging affiliates by collaborating with micro-influencers. 

 

To be honest, I have run ads before and the reach or the quality of the reach that affiliate marketing has given me, is way better - leading to conversions (and sales) faster. And you have an online store; so with solutions like Enlistly, you can actually double down on the tactic!
