Get the most out of Blomming
  • Affiliazione 26 February 2013 admin

    In this article we have collected the answers to common questions on our Affiliation program for sellers on Blomming. For information on what the Social Affiliation is and how it works, visit this article.

    1. How do I know who is promoting my products? In this first version of the Affiliation program it is not possible to monitor who your promoters are and where your products are being published, unless of course the product is sold.
    2. Can I choose only a selected few products to be available for promotion? No, at the moment the affiliation applies to all products that are sold in your Shop.
    3. What do I need to know to set up the percentage gained in the affiliation form? You can set the percentge that you prefer in Settings > Affiliation: this percentage (calculated from the price of the product as seen on the product page, and excluding shipping costs) will then be divided in equal parts between the promoter and Blomming in the case of a sale through the affiliation. The promoter will see his net gain directly ie. half of the value of the percenatge inserted by the seller.
    4. Why do you have to connect to PayPal for the Affiliation? Will I have to use it as a payment method for my Shop? Connecting to PayPal from the Affiliation Settings is a different procedure from the connection relating to Payment Methods: it is not used to receive payments (and therfore no comission is charged). In fact in this case the association is used exclusively to allow the automatic payment due to promoters at the end of the month, obviously only in the case of sales through the affiliation program. There are no other payment options with which to activate the affiliation.
    5. To activate the Affiliation do I have to pay for something? No. Activating the Affiliation for your Shop is free. It has been brought to our attention that some PayPal texts on their website can be misunderstood in this sense, we will try and intervene for them to be changed.
    6. What implications are there from a fiscal point of view? The sellers relationship from a fiscal point of view is only with Blomming: in case of sales derived from the affiliation we will emit a receipt with the total % that you chose and we will withhold this from your PayPal account connected to your Shop
    7. What happens if the order does not go through? In the case of an order being evaded or other problems relating to an order, the commission destined for the Promoter will be cancelled in the moment in which the seller requests the cancelling of an order, through the usual procedure which occurs in the Order Status page, and only if this cancellation is accepted by Blomming.
    8. How do I deactivate the Affiliation to my shop? The Affiliation can be deactivated at any moment by sending a request to Blomming from the Affiliation Settings page. When the request gets accepted, eventual commissions on the items sold and destined to the promoter will be withheld and the sellers items will no longer result as Promotable.
    9. How do promoters know that my products can be advertised? Promoters will see all the products that adhere to the affilliation program on a designated page. Furthermore, each product will be adorned with a golden-yellow tape that will indicate the percentage to be assigned to the would be promoter.
    10. How can I invite my friends and community to subscribe as a promoter on Blomming? Let everyone know about this opportunity: it’s also a way to enlarge your following. You can share this link:
