Basic process

This efficient process allows you to increase both your reach and your sales, while your resellers benefit from additional revenue.

1. Selection & creation

Firstly, you decide which of your resellers are authorized to use affiliate links with bookingkit Reach. Then bookingkit creates specific affiliate links for each reseller. These links are provided with tracking parameters that enable precise tracking and allocation. You alone have control over the UTM parameters and decide whether the link should lead to the landing page or the widget.

2. Use of affiliate links

As soon as these specific links have been created, your resellers use them in their channels. This can be on their own website, in social media, email campaigns or even in offline materials such as flyers.

3. Allocation & provisioning

If a booking is made via one of these affiliate links, it is assigned to the reseller in bookingkit Reach. As usual, you will receive the full amount of the booking directly. At the end of the month, the reseller’s profit share is automatically calculated and you can easily settle orders with your partners.

Affiliate links in three easy steps

Affiliate links without affiliate?

You can also decide to create a link without associating it with any resellers and use it for yourself. That way you can create your own campaign and keep an eye on its performance very easily.

Enable your resellers

Once authorized, your resellers are able to create affiliate links connected to your offer themselves. This way you skip a step, have less effort and your resellers can sell faster and more flexibly.

Background: What are affiliate links?

Affiliate means to be linked together. This usually refers to a provider and one or more sellers who are trying to sell something together in an affiliate programme. 

Affiliate links are special URL links generated as part of this partnership that lead to the corresponding offer. These are actively used by the sellers to draw people’s attention to the offer and generate sales. 

If someone clicks on it and a purchase or booking is made, the affiliate partner earns a commission. Affiliate links typically contain tracking parameters in order to attribute traffic and successful bookings to the respective seller.
