If you’re trying to build an affiliate retail site (or you have one already) than you will definitely want to check out the following resources: DataFeedr.com, PopShop.com and EasyContentUnits.com.
Each of these resources allow you to build an affiliate retail store or shop on a platform such as wordpress, using a product data feed allows you to display 100,000+ products from over 1,000 merchants on 15+ global affiliate networks.
For example, if you have an underwear site then you’d be able to display a range of underwear products from store such as the Nike Store, John Lewis, Top Shop and Buy.com on your site. You can choose which products/merchants you want to display on your site, customise your product display and edit the product descriptions and titles.
It’s also incredibly easy using the “search” tool in each of these resources’ backend to find products which you can affiliate for. For example, if I search for “ebook readers” than it will display a range of ereader products from different stores which I can promote on my site. (Seriously, even if you don’t plan on building a retail store, I would sign up to the free version of PopShops.com purely to find merchants which you can affiliate for and see which network they’re on).
The beauty of using these tools is that you can quickly build a professional looking retail or price comparison site within minutes. Basically, for each of these tools all you need to do is sign up, find products to promote, customise the display settings and then insert the script into your website page or post.
The advantage of using these resources is that is saves a TON of effort having to create your own shopping site, find good products, insert individual affiliate tracking URLs and having to add products to your site manually. This also beats using eBay’s product feed and partner affiliate program on your site, which only pays you with a CPC (the CPC is based on the quality of traffic you drive and could be $0.00c). Instead you earn full commissions from the stores of the products you’re promoting.
