Affiliate Link Operation

This figure shows the basic operation of affiliate links. This example shows that affiliate links are provided to affiliate marketing partners and these links are inserted on pages that have a common interest with the affiliate's product. When visitors to the affiliate web sites click on the affiliate link, this link provides the web address of the destination page along with an affiliate ID code. When the destination page is accessed, the affiliate ID code is stored during the visitor's session. If the visitor purchases a product, the affiliate ID is stored along with the order information. This order information and affiliate commission table is used to calculate the commissions that are paid to the affiliate partner.
