Frequently Asked Questions About Fabric.com's Affiliate Program

WHAT IS AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM?

An Affiliate Program is an excellent way to make your web site more profitable. Fabric.com’s Affiliate Program allows you to earn revenue through your web site by sending your visitors to our site through fabric.com links or banners.

HOW WILL I KNOW A SALE WAS GENERATED FROM YOUR WEB SITE?

Commission Junction records network transactions in real-time through a unique identifier associated to your site which tracks visitors from your site that come to us. This means that all Impressions, Clicks, Leads, and Sales are tracked instantly but they are posted to the Account Manager reports within 10-30 minutes, or occasionally longer.

Commission Junction’s primary tracking method is cookie-based. A cookie is a small file that is placed on a Web user’s computer to track information that users voluntarily divulge. Cookies allow Commission Junction to track what network ads your site visitors click on, what transactions take place on the advertiser’s web site, and which publisher to pay the commissions earned.

Commission Junction’s tracking code should be copied and placed on your site without any modifications. If you modify the code, the link may still work but not be tracked properly and reported by Commission Junction.
