Affiliate marketing is a marketing practise in which a business rewards an affiliate for bringing customers or making sales.
An affiliate program offered by a business will typically pay another business or individual a commission (a percentage of the sale price) for sales originating with the affiliate.
Usually, the business offering the affiliate program will supply the affiliate with individually tailored URLs which allow the affiliate to be identified.
Often, a cookie is kept on the customer's computer indicating which affiliate brought them to the business's website, so a return visit made indirectly but within the cookie duration period will still count as an affiliate sale.
