How does a typical affiliate program work, and how do I use one?
Affiliate programs vary widely based on the vendor.
Their purpose is to track your sales back to specific websites/resellers. The intention is to give each specific website owner a commission on all sales he directed to you.
To learn about your specific affiliate program please contact your vendor.
Typically, to integrate an affiliate program with the cart, you will simply place the affiliate program script into the HTML For Bottom Of Receipt option in Step #8, under Cart Settings.
