What does CPA mean?
Cost per acquisition (CPA) is a commission-based program for ShopStyle Collective creators. With CPA, creators will earn a percentage of the sales they drive. When transactions are confirmed as closed by the retailer, commissions will accumulate in your ShopStyle Collective account.
What are Affiliate Links?
Affiliate programs allow you to earn a commission by promoting products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make. An affiliate link contains special tracking so that the affiliate platform (ShopStyle Collective) can track the links, their performance based on various metrics including sales and clicks, and attach the performance to the account that owns that content.
How does ShopStyle Collective track my performance?
When you join the ShopStyle Collective program, your account is assigned a unique identification number (UID). All content created using your ShopStyle Collective account (including Text Links, Product Widgets, Looks & Collections, Favorites, your ShopStyle Shop--everything!) contains a special tracking code so that the affiliate network, the retailer, and our platform knows you’re the one referring traffic and sales to a retailer’s site.
Note: When someone clicks on your link and it leads to a purchase, you are given a commission percentage based on the entire trip sparked by your affiliate content and your revenue share. Learn more about your revenue share here.
