2 Types of Cubebrush Links
There are 2 types of links you will find on Cubebrush, those are:
- Long URLs - For example https://cubebrush.co/claymanstudio/products/mttdiq
- Short URLs (Shortlinks) - For example http://cbr.sh/gl189m
Both these web addresses link to the same page/product, but are obviously different. Shortlinks exist to make sharing on social media easier, but they come with some cool quirks we'll take a look at in more detail below.
As a seller, you have your own unique shortlinks that are different from those the public sees when visiting your pages. You have shortlinks for your store as a whole, and for each of your products individually.
An affiliate link is any link after which you add a referral code: ?ref=username
Any web address on Cubebrush can be turned into an affiliate link by adding your own code to it.
If someone visits that link and makes a purchase, any purchase, you'll get 10% of the price paid added to your own Balance for having helped close that sale.
3 Types of Affiliate Links
You can add your referral code to Long URLs, Shortlinks and any URL with an existing parameter.
- Long URLs - cubebrush.co/claymanstudio/products/mttdiq?ref=username
- Shortlinks - cbr.sh/gl189m?ref=username
- URL with existing parameter - cubebrush.co/?product_id=mttdiq&ref=username
In the last example, you will notice the "?" was changed to a "&" instead. A question mark indicates the beginning of a parameter, therefore, to add a second parameter (your referral code) you need to use the "&" character instead for the URL to be valid.
This feature is available to you by default as a Cubebrush sellers which means you can start to generate affiliate sales right away by adding your referral code to any Cubebrush URL.
Automated Affiliate Links
You read that right - as a seller you also have the option to automatically add your referral code to all your own shortlinks. To enable this feature, simply visit your Store settings page and enable Affiliate Links.
When the feature is enabled, all you'll have to do is share your shortlink as you would normally. Those shortlinks will now allow you to generate affiliate sales without the need to add your referral code to them.
For example, sharing your shortlink cbr.sh/gl189m would not only trigger the low transaction fee of 5%, but it would also give you 10% of each sales made after a person visits that shortlink - whether the sale is for that product or a different one.
There's no easier way to offset your transaction fees and generate extra money!
