Using Magento Commerce as an affiliate site.

Using Magento Commerce as an affiliate site.

I am now running 3 Sites with Magento. Two are Traditional Shopping cart sites, but the my newest one had to be an affiliate style site.

What I mean by an affiliate site is that when you click on the buy it now button you are taken to a 3rd party website to complete the sale. Magento does not do this out of the box, it took a long sleepless night for me to figure out how to do this. Not too many people are willing to share how they did this either. I have to thank for their help.

I will be releasing the template that I created to do this very soon. I need to test it some more and finish building my new site.

Please Leave a comment if you are interested in this template.

  1. Just to say I’m looking for exactly the same thing so just an encourage to let you know that this template is wanted and needed.

  2. I’ve been scouring Magento Connect for a solution and it looks like I’ve found it.

    Can’t wait till you release the code and instructions on how to set this up.

    Much appreciated

  7. Hi Dan, i am coming around since i want to integrate affiliate, too.

    my plan so far: having affiliate and own products in one shop. this way the shop merely becomes kind of product search database.
    product with deeplink show no basket but “shop now” link which leads to affiliate partnershop. each klick needs to be counted.
    products without deeplink can be taken to basket normally magento way.

    i would appreciate your templates as a basis to start off.

    thanks for contributing
