Who Are Affiliates?
The term “affiliate” truly applies to many different types of partners, including unique people, companies and organizations.
The affiliate model empowers companies to manage these partnerships at scale and only remunerate their partners after they’ve delivered on an agreed-upon outcome (e.g. generating a high-value lead, driving a sale, bringing on a new customer, etc.).

How Do Affiliates Get Paid?
Affiliates are remunerated when their promotional attempts create a conversion; a specific action that’s been settled on by the brand.
Typically, this solicited conversion is a new customer, a sale, or a high-quality lead.
Compensation can constitute a commission based on the join incentives, percentage of a sale, blog post bonuses, flat fee plus commission or free product, flat fee for a high-value lead, etc.
Remuneration owed to affiliates is typically paid out via direct bank transfer, UPI, Paytm.
What Is A Commission Rate?
Typically, commission rates to affiliates that are fixed by the company or brand – are based on a percentage of the total sale (e.g. 10%) that they’ve pushed for a brand.
Commission rates can further alter depending on the type of website and/or promotional channel they use (e.g. content, coupon, loyalty, mobile, etc.).
Affiliates can evaluate the commission rate(s) established by the brand when they confirm and sign up for their affiliate program and can additionally negotiate commission rates with some brands in negotiation for added/incremental exposure.

What Kinds Of Brands Offer Affiliate Programs?
Brands in almost every industry imaginable have affiliate/partner programs.
From enterprise-level organisations with billions in revenue to direct-to-consumer brands who’ve evolved beyond doing the legendary paid marketing, businesses of every shape and size leverage the affiliate marketing model to develop their business.
What Is A Cookie?
Cookie is a tiny text file that a blog or a website puts on a user’s computer (including tablets, smartphones, or other connected devices) to save information about the user’s movement.
Practically all companies with high-traffic websites employ cookies to track visitors’ online activity, be that return visits, the things in their shopping cart, their search decisions, etc.
In affiliate marketing, cookies are essential to tracking the performance of affiliate partners and the efforts they should be compensated on.
For instance, if you visit an affiliate’s website – say a product review site – and you click on a link inside their content, a cookie is placed on your laptop, computer or device.
That cookie is used to retain the link or ad that you ticked on.
Even if you move away from that affiliate’s site and don’t make an investment until a later date – even 30 days later—, that affiliate can still receive credit for the purchase and earn a commission.
How Long Do Cookies Last?
Cookie length is defined by the company brand and is based on their requirements, strategy, business model, merchandises, average order value, and their customer’s average buying decision time.
Some cookies could be for 24-hours, several days, a week, 30 days or even longer. The most common cookie length for an affiliate program is 30 days.
E.g. A brand has a 30-day cookie length placed on their program. An affiliate addresses a brand’s service and includes their affiliate link within the blog post.
If a guest to that affiliate’s site clicks on the link and then purchases the brand’s service at any point with 30 days or the prescribed date from clicking on the affiliate link, that affiliate is compensated.
Who Has Control Over What An Affiliate Publishes On Their Site/Blog/Social Channels?
While the affiliate has authority over the overall information and content they share to their readers, the brand has control over what data the affiliates within their business share associated with their products and services.
They do this via their brand terms and conditions.
Brands may also have distinct branded terms, trademark names and expressions that they prohibit their affiliates from utilising in their promotional efforts.
These features are outlined in the brand’s affiliate deal.
Do Affiliates Have To Disclose Their Relationship With A Brand In Their Promotional Efforts?
A declaration statement within any pages, blog/posts or social media posts wherever affiliate links are used in an advertisement or review, and where it is not obvious that the link is a paid advertisement.
Affiliate’s disclosure statements should be clear and brief and state that they may be compensated if the user makes a purchase.
E.g. “This post includes affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you purchase after clicking on my links.”
Who Manages An Affiliate Program?
Affiliate program management differs from brand to brand. Some brands choose to operate their affiliate programs in-house or have it managed by affiliate networks.
At the same time, other brands choose to partner with an affiliate management agency to handle the day-to-day requirements of an effectively-run business.
There are also brands, especially enterprise brands, who take a “hybrid” approach to the administration of their program where they oversee details of it in-house (e.g. performance, high-level strategy, and program budget) and associate with an agency to handle the day-to-day aspects.
