What is affiliate marketing on Afterpay (aka Afterpay Ads)?
Afterpay Ads is a new way for you and other advertisers to grow GMV by targeting Afterpay’s loyal customer-base using ads, paid placements, and other content-focused opportunities in our mobile app. We’ve included a visual below, but please download the Afterpay Mobile app to see what our Ads business looks like in practice.
What is the benefit of participating in Afterpay’s Affiliate program when I am already paying fees to work with them?
The Afterpay App has evolved from a shopping directory into a data-driven shopping feed that is completely personalized. We recently introduced the Afterpay’s affiliate program to enable advertisers to promote brands and products, including highlighting key promotional events and inventory. By participating in our affiliate program, merchants will benefit from increased ranking within this new ecosystem, and will have access to premium placements within our mobile app.
Payment processing fees are separate from marketing investments within Afterpay’s app and ecosystem.
What does it cost to partner with Afterpay?
Your commission rate with Sovrn will be applied to your Afterpay partnership. We recommend no less than a 10% commission rate to be competitive within the app. To adjust your rate, please reach out to our Sovrn partners at firstname.lastname@example.org.
