I have joined a merchant program. How do I pull tracking codes for my website/campaign?
Congratulations! You are ready to start promoting and making money. To do this, follow these simple steps:
Once you have found the appropriate creative, click “Get Creative Code”.
A window will pop up with the code. You can then “Highlight and Copy” it and paste it into your website.
My tracking links are up. I have banners and text links on my website. What are impressions, clicks and transactions?
If you want to measure the performance of your campaigns, you can go to your traffic, transaction and earnings report. You will see impressions, clicks and transactions.
Impressions are the number of views that the banner or text link on your website gets. Clicks are the number of times a creative such as a banner, text link or widget gets clicked on. Transactions are the completion of a commissionable action, whether it is a sale that is made through your website or a lead that has completed and submitted an application.
How often are my stats updated?
Each merchant updates their stats at various frequencies: Share Results stats can be updated in real time or daily, depending on the merchant. At minimum, your affiliate stats for each merchant are updated daily.
I can see that I have a “Pending” transaction. Why is it pending?
Merchants review transactions before approving them to ensure their validity. If all is well, they approve the transaction and you earn your commission. The time it takes to approve a transaction varies depending on the merchant. Some approve transactions within 24 hours, whilst others may need 30 days to verify a sale. This period before approval is when you have a pending transaction.
How do I know how much I am owed by each merchant?
Log in to your Share Results affiliate account and select “Reports”. On the Reports menu you will find a Payment Report. The Payment Report is a summary of commissions earned and bonuses issued during a specified date range for a specific merchant. If the total commission earned does not meet the payment threshold for the merchant, the commissions will be rolled over to the next period. If the threshold has been met, the payment becomes due to be paid.
By whom do I get paid?
Affiliates receive one payment a month from Share Results for commissions generated across all programs.
When do I get paid?
Affiliates get paid for approved transactions each month, as long as their combined commission exceeds their payment threshold. Payments are issued by the 10th working business day of the next month for approved transactions for the previous month.
How do I get paid?
Share Results combines all merchant payments into one simple sum per affiliate. Once the monthly sum reaches the threshold for that payment method, the affiliate will be paid.
Affiliates choose just one method of payment.
What happens if I do not reach the threshold for that month?
Your commissions will be carried-over to the next month until your affiliate commission total reaches the threshold.
I want to change my payment details. Can I do that?
Yes, you can! You just have to follow these simple steps to change your payment details:
Be sure to change it before the end of the month if you want your commission to be received in the NEW method you’ve updated.
I would like to update my address, username, password and websites in my account. Is there a way to do that?
There is an easy way to change your user information and you can do it by following these simple steps:
How do I add new websites?
You can add new websites (also known as tracking profiles) to your account without having to create a new affiliate account. In order to do this, follow these simple steps:
Share Results keeps your original site listed in your account to preserve historical data and records any traffic that may have been generated. However, you can add as many tracking profiles as you like.
I want to see how well I am doing. How often is your reporting updated?
Reporting is updated in real time. This means that it is updated within minutes of an impression, click or transaction occurring. As a result, you can immediately get a good idea of how well you are doing.
I logged in to my account and noticed that you have a coupon feed. What is that?
Coupon feeds aggregate all the coupons on the network in one place in order to save you time from having to search for them yourself. The feed contains coupons from within your own program as well as other programs. They are easy to use and come in an XML or CSV file format.
I want to know more about additional tracking options. What are they?
There are a number of additional tracking options we provide to our affiliates. Our most popular is called the ACID or Affiliate Client ID. You can add a custom parameter to your links to enable more detailed tracking at the transaction level. You might use this value to track transactions in your account back to an individual member or customer. Implementing the ACID requires that the additional parameter and value be added at the end of the standard affiliate link.
To find out more or how you can add and use this feature, contact your Share Results affiliate manager at email@example.com or you can message us through the internal message bank.
I am no longer doing affiliate marketing and want to close my account. Can I do that?
We are very sorry to lose you. If you would like to close your affiliate account, you simply have to contact an affiliate manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can use the internal message bank and we will be happy to help you out.
