ShopStyle Collective offers two programs to meet the needs of content creators of all levels.
What are Affiliate Links?
ShopStyle Collective influencers earn revenue when based on shopper engagement with their affiliate content created through their ShopStyle Collective account. Affiliate programs allow you to earn a commission by promoting products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make. An affiliate link contains special tracking so that the affiliate platform (ShopStyle Collective) can track the links, their performance based on various metrics including sales and clicks, and attach the performance to the account that owns that content.
ShopStyle Collective offers two programs to meet the needs of content creators of all levels:
- In the Advanced Program, when someone clicks on your link and it leads to a purchase, you are given a commission percentage based on the entire trip sparked by your affiliate content and your revenue share. Learn more here.
- In the Standard program, when a shopper clicks your link to view the retailers site, you'll earn per click as valid by the retailer. Learn more here.
How does ShopStyle Collective track my performance?
When you join the ShopStyle Collective program, your account is assigned a unique identification number (UID). All content created using your ShopStyle Collective account (including Text Links, Product Widgets, Looks & Collections, Favorites, your ShopStyle Shop--everything!) contains a special tracking code so that the affiliate network, the retailer, and our platform knows you’re the one referring traffic and sales to a retailer’s site.
ShopStyle Collective is tied to your ShopStyle account. When you generate ads, widgets, layouts, images, captions, or links, they are appended with your unique identification number (UID). If you use them generated by another partner, those clicks and orders will not be credited to your ShopStyle Collective account, even if those widgets appear on your site or application. The same applies if you use the ShopStyle Collective API; you must append your links with your API key in order for clicks and orders to be credited to your account.
