Sportoong.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn commissions by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
If you decide to buy any product that you found on our website, then you click the link. This affiliate link redirects you to the website of external companies, and you buy the product directly from the seller.
For help in attracting customers to their website, we receive affiliate commissions. If the product is not what you expected and you return it, we won’t get anything. Therefore, we are interested in recommending only those products that will delight you.
Product prices are the same regardless of whether you make purchases through an affiliate or non-affiliate link. Clicking on an affiliate link and clicking on an unaffiliated link does not change the price or anything else for you.
How Do Affiliate Links Work?
The principle of affiliate links can be shown in the following example:
Imagine that you are the owner of a small shop. You decided to make an advertisement with the help of friends and asked them to invite their friends to the shop. To encourage them to do so, you promised your friends 3% of the proceeds per order placed by each invited acquaintance.
But the shop is also visited by strangers who have come of their own free will. You can’t give your money to every client who appears in a cafe without the help of friends.
So you print out business cards for each friend and assign them a unique number. That is, Oliver Davies will have cards with one number, and Oscar Wilson with another. When the client shows a business card, you will definitely know which of your friends invited him and to whom the proceeds should be given.
Affiliate links work the same way, only sites are used instead of friends, and a link with a special identifier is used instead of a business card with a unique number.
