Read on for step by step instructions on how to set up an account, and how to be approved to work with Sovrn Commerce.
Getting started with Sovrn //Commerce is easy with just a few steps!
1. First, sign up for an account here.
2. Add any & all channels or sites in which you intend to promote our merchants through. You'll do this under Sites in the Settings tab. You can add a blog, forum, personal website, social media account, mobile app, or browser extension.
3. Complete the Approval Process. We put each new site through an approval process before turning on affiliation to ensure that our publishers abide by our and our merchants' terms of service.
You will not be able to monetize just yet! We must first receive click traffic through one of our affiliate link creation methods. This allows us to evaluate the traffic you can send and ensure it's a good fit for our affiliate programs. The good news is: once you're approved, you'll be accepted into almost all of our merchant programs!
The following methods can be used to provide us with test traffic, and you are only required to implement one:
- Anywhere link (manual link): Best option for Social Media accounts
- API integration
- Completed disclosure
After traffic has been sent through, your site will be reviewed by our Network Quality team to then have affiliation permissions turned on to begin working with available merchants.
Eligibility to earn with Sovrn Merchants
Until your sites (or channels of promotion) have been fully approved for our Commerce network via the approval process above, you will not be eligible to earn a commission with any of our available Merchants.
The Merchant Explorer will show all our listed merchants with a red ‘x’ until one of your sites have completed the above approval steps.
