Affiliate Commission is a type of marketing performance-based commission in which a company rewards an affiliate for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate's own marketing efforts. This can involve the affiliate directing customers to the company's website through a variety of marketing techniques, including blog posts, social media posts, email campaigns, and more.The commission rate is typically based on the number of visitors or customers referred to the company's website. For example, a company may offer an affiliate a 5% commission rate on all sales made through the affiliate's efforts. The commission rate may also depend on the type of product sold and the amount of money spent. For example, a company may offer an affiliate a 10% commission rate for clothing sales, but a 20% commission rate for electronics sales. For example, if an affiliate were to refer 100 visitors to a company's website, and those visitors resulted in 10 sales, the affiliate would receive a commission of 5% of the total sales, or $50. The commission rate and the amount of commission earned by the affiliate will vary depending on the terms of the affiliate program.
