The easiest and most common way to boost your profile as a merchant is to increase the commission rate you give to our publishers on an ongoing basis. This creates an incentive for publishers to write about your products and can lead them to consider writing more content as they are attracted to the potential higher returns. You can do this by increasing the commission rate for Skimlinks in your affiliate network. We will pass this increase down to our Publishers.
Our system will pull in this rate automatically and update the Merchant profile in our Skimlinks Publisher Hub within 24 hours. The only time you need to reach out to our Account Specialist team is when they need to approve it manually in the network.
Increased commission rates are reflected in your Merchant profile of our Publisher Hub. In addition, if you are a Managed Merchant and increase your commission rate by at least 50%, you will be highlighted to our Publishers as a Preferred Partner.
Our Publishers cannot guarantee exposure or uplift, but increasing your commission rate increases your chances of getting more coverage from our Publishers. They are highly motivated by long term increased commission rates. It also helps to keep our Publishers notified of offers, sales, new & hot products, collaborations, special deals, etc. This gives them content inspiration.
