Already on the DealDotCom blog, but many people might not have subscribed to them.
This is a useful plugin until the guys from DealDotCom come up with a solution of their own. They should really be delivering banners of various sizes to us every day without having to change any code, and an RSS or XML feed to play around with.
Anyway for now, you might find this DealDotCom plugin useful
Now if this was my plugin, I would be requiring an email address to download it, maybe using a membership site script.
Regarding DealDotCom itself, I have seen a few sales already, and I am even more glad that people I have referred have also seen sales but it is important to remember the explanation of how much you get paid.
Whenever you refer someone to DealDotCom via your handy-dandy affiliate link, you get paid 35% of DealDotComâ€™s profit for every item that they buy. If someone you referred to DealDotCom refers someone else, you get paid 15% of DealDotComâ€™s profit every time they buy something for the rest of your life.
The current item is quite a useful WordPress plugin for affiliate links, though there are other free alternatives such as Alinks.
It sells for $49.88
Direct sales earn you $8.05
Second Tier earn you $3.45
DealDotCom earn $11.50
I didn’t see any sales of their previous item, EasyMemberPro, but I am curious about what affiliate percentage was assigned. The guys behind DealDotCom are pretty honest, but because it was a higher ticket item, and because they actually control the rights to the product (though with a partner), they might have had a smaller percentage cut for affiliates.
Affiliates don’t know in advance on each item how much they will make promoting it.
To balance the equation, DealDotCom are paying lifetime commissions – every deal won’t be as attractive to every audience, but overall the value per customer must be an interesting puzzle to work out.
