What Are Affiliate Programs?
Simply we can say the Affiliate programs are the controllers of some arrangements in which an online merchant Web site have to pay the affiliate Web sites a commission to send them traffic.
These affiliate Web sites manage the process by posting links to the merchant site and are paid according to a particular agreement.
This agreement is usually depend on the number of people the affiliate sends to the merchant’s site, or the number of people they send who buy something, or perform some other actions.
The way those arrangements work is by paying according to the number of people who visit the page containing their merchant site’s banner advertisement.
Accordingly, if a link on an affiliate site brings the merchant site traffic or money, the merchant site pays the affiliate site according to their mentioned agreement.
Recruiting affiliates is an excellent way to sell your products online, it can also be a low cost and effective marketing strategy; it’s a good way to get the word out about your site, especially if you are on the top of local business listings.

- The affiliate site
- The merchant site
A long the years, affiliate programs have grown enormously in popularity, taking many interesting forms. For many Web sites that don’t deal much in e-commerce (selling products or services online) themselves, functioning as an affiliate is a good way to participate in e-commerce.

The affiliate program payment arrangement depends on three basic types
- Pay per sale
- Pay per click
