A Roiste acquisition channel

Affiliation is a performance marketing lever by which a merchant site (advertiser) offers a network of partner sites (known as affiliates or publishers) to promote its products or services through advertisements. In return, these affiliates receive a commission for every sale, click or action generated thanks to their distribution. This creates a win-win relationship where the advertiser benefits from increased visibility and the affiliate from a new source of revenue.

What’s more, this strategy makes it possible to reach targeted audiences and optimize ROI.

How does affiliate marketing work?

The merchant site allocates remuneration to the publisher in exchange for this visibility. Depending on the expectations and objectives of advertisers, different compensation models can be put in place. The particularity of these models is that they are all anchored in a logic of performance and efficiency. To be paid, the affiliate must therefore carry out the action predetermined by the advertiser (a sale, filling in a form, etc.).


They click on the offer link and arrive on the advertiser's site.

The customer converts on his site


manages the advertiser's campaign and tracks conversion.

Compensation models

The different models of remuneration in affiliation are as follows:

Cost per purchase (CPA)

Cost per purchase (CPA)

This mode of commission consists of remunerating the publisher for each sale that he generates from the traffic returned from his site.
That is to say each time an Internet user from the publisher’s site places an order on the advertiser’s site.
The commission can be fixed or variable (percentage on the amount of the sale). In the case of a percentage on sales, this will be defined in agreement with the advertiser according to its average basket and its margin rate.

Cost per click (CPC)

Cost per click (CPC)

Each click by a web surfer on an advertising medium is remunerated by a fixed amount in euros (ranging from a few cents to several dozen cents, depending on the targeting requested and the sector of activity). With this model, the advertiser commissions the publisher for each visitor sent to their site. The primary goal for CPC affiliate programs is to drive as much qualified traffic to their site as possible.

Cost per lead (CPL)

Cost per lead (CPL)

A lead is a sales contact, a potential customer (prospect). CPL consists of paying publishers for each lead it generates for the advertiser. The type of paid actions in a CPL affiliate program basically depends on how the advertiser wants to retrieve prospect information. Among the most frequent actions are filling out a form (request for quote, etc.), subscribing to a newsletter, downloading a document (catalogue, brochure, etc.)

Affiliation media

To help them promote their offers, advertisers need to provide publishers with various promotional tools. The most common are banners, mailing kits, text links, product feeds and discount codes. This promotional material is central to the device of any affiliate campaign. Its quality and presence in sufficient numbers are essential.

The more an advertiser offers varied media, regularly updated and optimized for conversion, the more publishers will be receptive and motivated to relay them. For advertisers who do not have the internal resources necessary to produce these promotional tools, we provide them with our graphic studio.
