FAQS – Tracking Links

How do I create links?

Log into your affiliate account and follow the instructions:

  • Get links via Rakuten Affiliate Network here.
  • Get links via AvantLink here.

Where should I place the affiliate links on my site?

Place affiliate links where your visitors will easily find them. High-traffic areas will attract the most buyers, which in turn results in a higher chance of converting traffic, and therefore your ability to earn more commission.

How often should I update my links?

You can update your affiliate links as frequently as you like. We recommend updating them with every sales event or rebate promotion we run so that your content is always fresh and up-to-date for your visitors. Visit the creative library within your network of record to get newest deals, and make sure you’re subscribed to our newsletters to get deal alerts right in your inbox.
