Using this marketing tool you can create attractive product placements on third-party portals. You are also able to evaluate and track your sales from other platforms.
The affiliate program also gives you the opportunity to check existing CPC rates between price search engines like E.g. Pricerunner, Livra, Bizrate or Kelkoo. Within one view you are able to evaluate the advantages of each price search engine and follow which transactions have been carried out by each portal. Through targeted advertising with items on other websites, you increase the number of unique visitors and sales, and thus the efficiency of your webshop.
