How to add affiliate products to my Shopify store
If you are part of an affiliate program or brand, you can sell the affiliate products via your Shopify store. For this to happen, you’ll need to get in touch with a brand or business that offers an affiliate program.
The business or brand will send you an affiliate link for the product you’ve agreed to affiliate with. To ensure your affiliate link works, you will need to link the Add to Cart button to the affiliate link. The customer will be directed to the affiliate link’s website, rather than the checkout page on Shopify.
If you are a brand or business that is looking to create their own affiliate program, Shopify offers options for this to happen. Be mindful there is no built-in functionality. You will need to use an app instead.
To make your affiliate program boom on Shopify, here are a couple of useful apps that will help to achieve this.
