impulsive is a great theme  

I would  try color swatches for the product   page and custom  product descriptions  as well,   alot  look like they were default  imported 


Also have a better  filtering on the collection page, rather than just   availability and price if you are going to have a big catalog

Hi @Sbellaoriginal , 


It's UpPromote: Affiliate Marketing. I am so sorry to hear about your issues. 


You may not see significant growth in affiliate numbers or sales during the setup period, which could take 1-2 months or even 3-6 months, but don't get too worried because good things take time!


However, there are some tips you can try to optimize your affiliate campaign and drive more sales as a merchant:


  1. Offer an appropriate commission structure:


When setting the commission rules, make sure that it is compatible with your market (not too low or too high in comparison with your competitors).


In general, affiliate payout for specific industry would depend on:

  • Size and popularity of business
  • Typical industry profit margin
  • Type of sales

    Beside setting program commission, you can also set special commission rules for specific products that might be useful for promoting products with higher/lower price or higher/lower profit margins.

2.Be careful with your affiliate registration form: 


  • On the affiliate registration form, you should state clearly your program commission rule on the Benefit section and additional term
  • It is the affiliate quality that matters, not quantity, so you should apply some tips to avoid spam sign-up that may waste your time:
    • Enable Captcha (human verification)
    • Add more required fields
    • Disable Auto-active affiliate

3. Review your shop with best quality product and precise description:



Affiliate program success lies in the quality of your selling products. Before giving them to any promoter, make sure you optimize product quality and provide a precise description of product function, how your affiliate boosts your items will depend mainly on the product itself.


4.Assist your affiliates while they are promoting your product:


  • Make sure affiliate can reach you easily
  • Provide high-quality product media kit: You can upload banners, product images and other media assets on Creatives 
  • Give advice to affiliates about the promotion method they should use because you know your products better. You can send Bulk email to affiliates or state your guide on Affiliate guide to help them with some tips or with the most suitable method.
  • Share success story of existing affiliate in your shop for inspiration
  • Send feedback on their performance


I hope my recommendation will be helpful for you. If you are still looking for a marketing tool to boost your sales greatly, I hope you can try our product: UpPromote: Affiliate Marketing
