Affiliate marketing is a performance-based marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each customer brought to that business through the affiliate’s own marketing effort.Tapfiliate enables businesses to set up, recruit for, promote and grow their affiliate marketing programs from one central location.Tapfiliate also offers up-to-date data on sales and commissions, ensuring businesses have accurate financial information relating to the performance of their affiliate marketing program.


Log-in, Platform, and Domain Selection

Having logged in for either a 14-day free trial (credit card or PayPal details are necessary here) or one of the paid plans, you are given the option to select the platform on which to install Tapfiliate from a large range of options. As an example, The WordPress option takes the user to a link to the WordPress plugin which, once installed and linked to your Tapfiliate account ID, automatically lets Tapfiliate know when a conversion to your site occurs. Alternative options are given if your platform isn’t listed on the site, allowing you to include Landing Page Codes and Basic Conversion Page Codes on your site in order to ensure that the Tapfiliate platform is notified when a conversion takes place. The next step in setting up your Tapfiliate account is to choose your Tapfiliate Domain. This is the place where your affiliates can sign up and log in.

Setting up an Affiliate Program

The affiliate program forms the focus of your interaction with the Tapfiliate site; users are required to set up a program when logging in for the first time. Users can choose to complete the entire program set-up in one sitting or come back later and edit the program once it is up and running. At this stage you will be asked to provide a title for your affiliate program and assign a Default Landing Page URL, this is the main page you want your affiliates to refer traffic to and in most cases will be your organisation’s home page. It is also necessary to specify commission details at this stage; this involves setting up the rate, whether a fixed amount or a percentage; currency and recurrence of commission for your program. Advanced commission settings can be adjusted after the initial setup stage. The recurrence of commission can also be set at this stage allowing you to choose whether an affiliate is awarded a one-off commission or whether they are rewarded on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis. This setting is useful, for example, in the case of subscription services who wish to keep awarding their affiliates during the entire lifetime of the customer referred. A payout method is also mandatory here, options include Paypal, Bank, Check, Bitcoin, Skrill, Webmoney and Discount.
