What is an Affiliate?

Website owners will typically earn advertising revenue in three ways: per click, per sale and per lead.

Pay-per-click programs payout for every click or visitor they send to the merchant’s (Argos’s) site.

Display campaigns reward the publisher (website owner) for the number of times an advert is displayed.

Pay-per-sale and pay-per-lead programs are the methods Argos use to reward our publishers within our affiliate programme. Leads for ‘Check and Reserve’ are typically rewarded at 25p for each Check and reserve reservation and home deliver sales are rewarded with a percentage of sales revenue generated as a result of the advert (within 30 days of the advert being clicked).

In ‘Internet Marketing’, an affiliate is a person or company which sends visitors to a website in exchange for commissions. Our affiliate programme is based upon revenue being.

Each affiliate is given a unique link to paste into his or her website, so Commission Junction can track which affiliate is responsible for generating a sale.

Most affiliates own a website or several websites. However, some earn commissions by paying for advertising and sending the visitors directly from the ads to the merchant, others may generate revenues through email camapigns, (please be sure to apply our negative match list to any search campaigns).
