Tip 6 - Advanced Topics We've come torepparttar 136320 last day ofrepparttar 136321 course, and it's time to tie uprepparttar 136322 loose ends and cover some advanced topics. As you know by now, affiliate marketing can be incredibly rewarding when done properly. There are also a lot of pitfalls you need to watch out for as well. One of these is merchant fraud. Merchant fraud, unfortunately, does happen. Merchants can use any number of clever tactics to cheat you out of your commission. One of these methods is to offer multiple payment options to customers without linking each one to their affiliate tracking software. For example, let's say that a merchant offers credit payments, payment via Paypal and payment via check torepparttar 136323 customer. The merchant tracks your affiliate ID up torepparttar 136324 point of sale and credits you ifrepparttar 136325 customer chooses to pay via credit card throughrepparttar 136326 merchant's main payment gateway. However, ifrepparttar 136327 customer chooses Paypal or check, your affiliate ID is immediately tossed. The only way around this clever trick is an exercise of caution on your part. When you evaluate a potential affiliate program, check to see how many payment methodsrepparttar 136328 merchant offers. Secondly, after you sign up for an account, examine you referral links. In fact, if you haverepparttar 136329 budget to spare, follow your own link and choose one ofrepparttar 136330 alternate payment options and purchase a product. Did you get credit for that sale? Great! If you didn't receive credit, though, it's time to can that merchant and move on to more ethical waters. Here's another 'advanced' tip to consider: use affiliate networks like Commission Junction to evaluate potential merchants. Joining programs via a network is often a better choice than signing up at individual, non-networked sites. The reason is simple: membership in an affiliate network imposes stricter standards on merchant behavior. You also have access to a wealth of data onrepparttar 136331 overall performance of other affiliates in that merchant's program. Last but not least, you need to focus on building trust among potential customers. If your merchant site doesn't do a very good job of this, then send your visitors to your web site. Make it clear what products and/or information you have to offer. Also, be vigilant about posting your contact information in a prominent place. Anonymity might be fun in a chat room, but it turns off consumers very quickly. For an extra advantage, consider having your site evaluated “net cop” programs likerepparttar 136332 one at, and get your site listed inrepparttar 136333 online section ofrepparttar 136334 Better Business Bureau's web site.
