If you are an online retailer using discount code box in your checkout,then it is very likely that discount box itself is costing you thousands in affiliate commissions each month to affiliates who actually didn’t refer the sale.
In the example below from shoes.com you can see the discount code box, but as I don’t have one, I decided to look for it on the internet, and I have found plenty of websites with shoes.com discount code.
The problem is, I came to shoes.com site via PPC advertising, so it cost them money. Once I arrived into the checkout, I realized that I didn’t have any discount code and decided to look for it on the internet as anyone else does.
I found plenty of sites with shoes.com discount codes. The problem for retailers like you is that those coupon code website quietly installed an affiliate cookie on my machine, and the sale has been credit to them, even though they did nothing to refer the sale. Is this ringing bells for you now? Not dealing with the problem properly, and most importantly, quickly, is very likely to be costing you money and in the shoes.com case, it could be a lot.
So how can I deal with it?
Whichever of these 3 methods you will use I can guarantee you, that you will save yourself a lot of affiliate payments from day 1.
