GoToGadgets Affiliate Scheme Help
Q. What is the GoToGadgets affiliate scheme?
A. This scheme is a mechanism that allows you to get paid a commission on every mobile phone watch product
that you recommend and sell. You can advertise anywhere (like Google Adwords or other Pay-Per-Click campaigns) but
most people have best results selling through their website or blogs.
Q. So how does it work?
A. You start by registering for your own GoToGadgets affiliate ID (don't worry - it's all free!) and then simply
select a mobile phone watch product (or products) that you would like to promote. From there, it's just a case of
creating a special link in to our website:
http://www.mobilephonewatches.co.uk/redirect.php?aid=Your affiliate ID here&pid=Product ID here
You can find the product ID in the URL of the product that you want to promote. It'll be a few digits long and be
comprised of just numbers. For example..
..would be the link that you would use if you wanted to promote our Q8 Dual SIM Mobile Phone Watch if your GoToGadgets
affiliate id was 'superseller101'. Once you have your link, you can then embed it into your website, blog, forum
signatures, etc - and that's it! When your visitors click your link and purchase through our website - you'll receive
5% commission of that sale! But it's not just 5% of the item you recommend - it's 5% of their entire order (regardless
of what they end up purchasing).
Q. Great! So how do I keep track of sales?
A. Any orders that are placed through your affiliate link are tracked in your GoToGadgets affiliate account and
can be tracked in there. It details what was purchased and when, the total order value and your commission. Also in here,
you'll see the order status (either 'New' or 'Paid'). Thirty days after the customer has raised the order, your
commission will be issued. We allow this amount of time to allow for any product returns, etc.
Q. Can you report how many times a link has been clicked?
A. Due to the number of variables currently not - but it is planned to implement this feature in the future
Q. So how much can I be looking at to make per item?
A. Our mobile phone watches range up to £150. That means that your commission can be up to £7.50 for every watch
sold. However, remember that it's 5% of the total order value. We find that after a watch has been added to the cart
from mobilephonewatches.co.uk, customers will look around our parent site (gotogadgets.co.uk) and potentially make
additional purchases. Remember, it's these additional purchases that you'll also gain commission on automatically.
Q. How do I get paid?
A. You have the choice of either cheque or PayPal. Issuing cheques and postage aren't free and so these fee's
are deducted from your earnings. Likewise, PayPal have their fee's to take into consideration too (we provide both of
these services at cost to us - ie, we don't 'make' anything on these). On average, PayPal is the cheaper mechanism to
get payments to you and so is our recommended payment method.
