There are some affiliation platforms, which offer affiliated marketing to various advertisers and to people that want to supplement their earnings through affiliation. The biggest and well-known affiliation platforms in Romania are 2Parale and Profitshare.
The advertiser (the person that owns the online store and wants to sell) will practically create an account on the platform and present its products.
The affiliate (the one in charge with promoting the products that will earn a commission) will create an account on the platform and present the sites which he owns or the promotion processes through which will show the products of the advertiser (Google Adsense, Facebook Ads, Email Marketing, SEO & SEM, etc.)
The affiliation platform will offer the affiliate various promotion methods for the products of the advertiser (online banners, action buttons, newsletter form, etc.). The affiliate will choose the online stores he wants to promote. Then he will agree with the advertiser what percentage of sales he made possible he deserves. In other words, the affiliate will promote the products of an advertiser on his website or on his own Facebook page, and from the sales he made on these platforms, the advertiser gives a percentage to him.
