A list of the most common questions we receive from our affiliates
What is an affiliate program?
An affiliate program is an advertising program that offers monetary rewards to people/companies who drive customers to the merchant's own website via the placement of advertising banners, links in website or emails content, PPC campaigns, social media pages, etc.
The affiliate is then paid commissions on the revenue generated from that referred traffic. What, how and when the affiliate gets paid is dependent on the agreement entered into with the affiliate program in question.
For more on what, when & how Giant Affiliates pays out, please see the corresponding FAQ section below.

You may want to differentiate your links based on where you have placed them. If you want to track links you've placed in a widget on your website you can create a channel just for this link placement.
First create and name a new channel in your Giant Affiliate control panel (Promotions >> Add Channel). A channel and it's corresponding "channel code" will be generated, then simply add &chan="channel code" to the end of the tracking url.
