AlstraSoft Affiliate Network Pro is the next generation affiliate network software solution that allows you to start your own successful affiliate network just like LinkShare and Commission Junction. If you are looking to run your own network of merchants and affiliates or simply start an affiliate program for your company, then Affiliate Network Pro is the right solution for you!


Why Affiliate Network Pro?

Internet affiliate marketing is the most effective way of generating extra profits for you or your merchant’s website by using revenue sharing advertising between merchants and their affiliates. It is also the most cost effective solution because merchants only pay if referred customers actually make a purchase and affiliates get paid a fixed percentage or amount for every sale. A Merchant can choose to pay per sale, click, lead or impression and has the ability to manually or automatically approve a transaction as well as affiliate accounts.

Using our Affiliate Network Pro software, affiliates will be able to promote the merchant’s services or products to potential customers in their website via email, text links, banners ads, pop-out banners and even flash ads! Our software then tracks the number of times each link is displayed, the number of visitors who use the link to find you or your merchants website and the amount each referred customer paid. Affiliate Network Pro will also keep track of commissions payable to each affiliate and manage commission payments.

Affiliate marketing allows both affiliates and merchants to make money online and therefore it is truly the only ’pay-per-performance’ method for online businesses.


Affiliate Network Pro Integration

AlstraSoft Affiliate Network Pro allows merchants to integrate our affiliate system into their existing website be it a shopping cart, member management system or any other online payment gateway such as Paypal, 2Checkout.com and WorldPay.

By simply adding a few lines of code into your website, merchants can now start their affiliate program and begin tracking sales/leads.

Affiliate Network Pro will work with almost all of the shopping carts, membership scripts as well as payment gateway. Feel free to contact us if you are unsure if the system on your merchant’s website will integrate with our affiliate system.


How It Works?

Each merchant account will has it own unique tracking code that uses an invisible tracking pixel or javascript which merchant will need to insert the code into the "order confirmation" or "thank you" page in your website/shopping cart/member management system.

Whenever a sale or lead has been made, the tracking code will be called and our system will detect which affiliate who made the sale as well as performing some backend operations such as fraud detection and notifications.
