How can I get a referral fee for product sales?

The idea would be that customers come to my site to see products from many sites that I have created partnerships with, then once they choose what they like, they go to the website the product is on and make the purchase. My question is how to I get paid for hooking up the buyer to the seller? I know the standard would be that I will have some type of affiliate marketing or advertising on my site, but is there a way I can get paid for the actual referral of the product sale? I really don’t want to really on the honor system! If I did I think I would see no money. Most of the sites I will be working with will not have any type of affiliate system setup or anyway to do tracking of my referred clients.

I thought of having some type of promo-code for a discount, but then there is no way to ensure the buyer will not just make a deal with the seller around my back.

Would it be worth it to offer a rebate on confirmed orders? Say once a sale is made, they buyer shows proof via reciept and I offer a small rebate or gift card somewhere. This way I can have proof the sale was made and then take it up with the seller to get my referral share. If they dont pay the referral I drop them from the site.

What about if I where to collect all the info for the sale (billing & shipping info, credit card info) and then pass that info to the sellers to finish up process the transaction and ship. I would be upfront to the buyers that their data is being transferred to the seller website for final processing. This way I know about the sale and can request my referral.

Does anyone have any suggestions here or comments to my ideas? Thanks much.

Why do you want to work with sites that don’t have affiliate programs in place when there are so many that offer good trustworthy systems?

Just work with reputable sites and you will get your money when your referral makes a purchase.

As Alexander says “simples”



Niche Market

If an affiliate system is not in place this is the most sensible option. In fact, it’s a better option than cookie tracking, because cookies can get lost while discount coupons can spread virally. I would not worry about the seller doing something dishonest, if they are dishonest they will do it no matter what tracking system is in place. If a seller doesn’t convert, for whatever reasons, you simply stop promoting their products.

It’s an option but an overhead on your end. Additionally you get to worry about the chargebacks and returns.

Yes, it’s called dropshipping. But in this case you are the storefront responsible for order processing and part of the customer support. That’s something you’d not necessarily want to be involved in if you’re just looking into affiliate marketing, but it also allows you to set your own prices and take the margin.
