Frequently Asked Questions

What is Affiliate Advertising?

Affiliate Advertising is a form of performance-based marketing where you, the “Publisher”, earn commissions on qualified sales made by one of your website visitors. By referring your site visitor/customer to us, the “Advertiser” or “Merchant”, you profit off any qualified sale that is made. For example, a website visitor of yours clicks on our FaucetDirect banner, the banner takes them to FaucetDirect.com and they purchase a faucet, the qualified sale is tracked back to you and you receive a commission check (aka Referral Bonus!) through one of the Affiliate Networks.
