At ShopStyle Collective, we think that your traffic and conversion are both important measures of your influence, so we’ve designed a program that helps you monetize both.
- ShopStyle Collective is a PPC (pay-per-click) affiliate program that pays you for every valid click
- ShopStyle Collective tracks all clicks and sales associated with your affiliate links to determine a unique pay-per-click rate based on your performance
- There's not a cap for how much can be earned per click and it will always be above $0.00 per click
- This rate fluctuates and can do so multiple times
- All brands and stores you link out to will earn you the same pay-per-click rate. Find what brands and retailers are available here
- The more clicks that convert to sales, the better! This is just one of the contributing factors that can improve your PPC. Check out our tips here!
How does click/sale tracking work?
- A click is counted anytime a user clicks through on an affiliate link to view or purchase the item on the retailer's site
- A sale is counted anytime a user clicks through on your affiliate link and purchases from that site.
- For example, if you share an affiliate link to a pair of shoes from Neiman Marcus and a user clicks through to these shoes but purchases a different item during their shopping session, the sale will most likely track in your account. The cookie window that allows for this tracking is specific to each retailer.
Factors that contribute to PPC:
- Conversion rate
- Traffic your links send to the retailers
- The price value of products you’re linking out to
- Usage of “high commission” items
- Your total blog traffic
- The ratio of converting clicks vs. non-converting clicks
What’s My Pay-Per-Click Rate?
On your Analytics Dashboard, you’ll see your earnings and clicks for the selected time period. To see your pay-per-click rate, simply select the time period and divide earnings by clicks. In the example below: $753 earnings/15000 clicks = $0.05 per click.
How Can I Earn More?
When you think of how much you’ll earn on ShopStyle Collective, keep this simple equation in mind:
Number of clicks X pay-per-click rate = your earnings
Please keep in mind that the Conversion Rate calculator at the top of your account's dashboard reflects your affiliate links performance during the selected time frame. Learn more about the dashboard here.
