The only requirements for an affilitate, is that they have an email address and a PayPal account.
A website is only required if an affiliate wants to propagate their links, that contain their affiliate ID, using banner ads. They could just as easily do the same thing by embedding links with their affiliate ID in message posts, or emails, facebook, twitter etc.March 1, 2014 at 11:11 pm #61205
Thank you for your prompt reply. I Think I have gotten everything going.
Now here is another question: can the links be in an easier format for affiliates to copy and paste, in stead of html? I imagine that some of my potential affiliates will not be very digitally advanced in how to put html in the email body. What would be the easiest way to go for these affiliates?March 2, 2014 at 2:17 pm #61206

Thanks, but I don’t mean the URL, but the actual fact that the affiliates need to put the links in as html-codes in their emails. Is there anyway to get around that for the people who don’t really know where that function would be on their email pages?March 4, 2014 at 1:09 am #61208adminKeymaster
You just enter the URL in the email just like you would enter normal text. The email client automatically make an URL clickable (when the recipient gets it). So you don’t have to do anything special on your end.March 10, 2014 at 12:45 am #61209
This is what the link looks like when I copy and paste it as an affiliate. It doesn’t look so nice to me…

Can I somehow make it easier for my users/affiliates by giving them a link/url that is note a code?March 10, 2014 at 12:47 am #61210
Oh, typically! Now it does work! But when I post a link on Facebook or on Hotmail in the email, it doesn’t work.March 10, 2014 at 4:38 am #61211
Thanks I got it now.March 10, 2014 at 5:46 pm #61212
