To start promoting the programs you want, you would need to first to apply to the merchant programs in the user interface and get approved by the merchant.
- Go to the Merchants tab > Search for Merchants.
- If you do not have a specific advertiser in mind and want to browse the directory, you can browse any of the categories on the left-hand side or use keywords to refine your search.
- By clicking on a merchant profile, you can see the terms of their programs, their goals and objectives, and often a summary of their business and brand perception. Within each profile, you'll also see statistics on average sale, average commission rates, average conversion rates, etc. Be sure to review their Terms & Conditions and PPC Keyword Rules, as well.
- Once you are happy with the selected merchant, click Join Program to apply.
You have the opportunity to write a note to each merchant on the application page. This is a great place to showcase what sets you apart from other affiliates, though it is not mandatory.
The merchant will review your application and decide whether it will be approved. Your acceptance to the program will remain pending until a decision is made, and you can view the status of your application by going to Accounts > Manage/Leave Programs. Once approved onto each program, you'll have access to all the tools you need to promote the merchant, including links, banners, deals, and promotions.
If you need to contact an advertiser because your membership is taking too long to be accepted, please feel free to reach out by going to Accounts > Manage/Leave Programs > Contact.
