In this guide I will show you how to sign up, add links, and start making money from their affiliate program.
What Skimlinks is all about
“Skimlinks affiliates product links from your commerce content. Automatically.”
Simply Skimlinks is a collector of other major affiliate companies and combines them into one single easy to use platform. There are many already established affiliate programs, so once you join Skimlinks, you will have immediate access to major designers, retailers & lifestyle companies.
There are two parts to Skimlinks:
One: Their affiliate platform where all publishers have access to the 1k+ merchants in their program.
Two: The second is a plugin/script that is installed on the site where if you enter just the direct link to company in their program, it will give the site affiliate attribution once the reader clicks. Super easy to install and much more time saving.
