An affiliate is someone who is reselling your products. An affiliate is someone external to Bókun who is selling your product on their website with via a booking widget you have provided them or by using a tracking code and redirect back to your own website for booking.
The affiliate tracking allows you to keep track of all sales taking place via your affiliates. The affiliate keeps record of all bookings and keeps track of payable commission in Affiliate Sales report (Reports -> Affiliate sales)
There are three ways to use affiliate tracking:
- Affiliate tracking code to track clicks from sellers web to your own booking engines.
- Create an online booking engine, add the affiliate to it and track bookings, and e-mail to your re-seller.
- Manually add affiliates to bookings you add to Bókun.
Before you do any of these three options, the first step is to create affiliates in Bokun.
Here is how to create affiliates.
