Default How can I make money sending traffic to merchant homepage and not individual product?

I want to drive traffic to merchant homepages in addition to listing some of their products. Is it possible to drive traffic to a merchant homepage and get credit for the sales?

If this is not possible to do within datafeedr, any recommendations on accomplishing this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Ron

Hi

Welcome to the forums!

We aggregate products from the data feeds from the merchants. Because of this, there are no direct links to the merchants' homepages. However, you can usually get that link from the affiliate network. Once you have the link you can add it to your blog as a Link or to your store as a Custom Product.

Which affiliate site do they use - Shareasale or??

Like Eric has said most affilaite sites allow you to create "custom links" and that link can be any page on the merchants site.

Hi,

I have been following the advice of creating custom links and am getting the site set up much faster than I imagined possible!

Thanks again,

Ron

Yep and they allow you to drive traffic to any page. Handy when putting links insides posts or pages.
