How to log in
To log in to the Affiliate Resource Center on 1Shopping Cart, use the following link:
The page you see when you log in is called the Affiliate Resource Center. We’ll “tour” that below.
Here are the links available from the Affiliate Resource Center:
3. Links & Tools
4. Commissions Summary
6. My Profile
7. Affiliate Resources
This takes you the main page of the ARC.
You’ll see a summary of your statistics. The most important numbers are the two on the right: number of sales and sales amount.
3. LINKS & TOOLS
There are several important pieces here:
a. Your affiliate link.
This is displayed at the top of the page, just above the “Overall Statistics.”
You can use this link to direct people to the Product Flourishing homepage. Once someone uses your link to visit the PF homepage, you’ll get credit for any purchases they make from the rest of the website, even if they leave & return to the page at a later date.
b. Text Links
We have a couple of text links prepared for you, one that says “Premium Planners” and one that says “Email Triage.”
These links will direct people to the Premium Planner and Email Triage sales pages, respectively. To use the links, just copy the code displayed & paste it into your webpage or HTML newsletter where you want the words “Premium Planner” or “Email Triage” to appear. Your affiliate link is already “built in” to the code, so you don’t have to add it.
Click on the “Banners” link at the top of the screen to move from Text Links to Banners.
You’ll still see your affiliate link at the top of the screen. Under that are several banner images you can use in varying sizes.
Let’s take the first banner as an example: it’s called Email Triage Ad 250×250 (Design 2).
We’ve got that image set up so that it automatically directs people to the Email Triage sales page. So to use that image, all you have to do is copy the code displayed and paste it in your webpage, sidebar or HTML newsletter wherever you want that image to appear. Remember that your affiliate link is already “built in” to the code, so you don’t have to add it.
Under the code, there is a panel showing your statistics for that specific banner link. You can see how many sales and commissions you’ve made from clicks on that specific image. This can be useful if you decide to experiment with using different banners and see which banners work the best for your audience.
The image we’ve looked at in this example is 250 pixels wide & 250 pixels tall. There are other banners of different sizes for your use. Just scroll down the page to view them.
To view the rest of the banners, click the “Next” link at the bottom of the page.
4. COMMISSIONS SUMMARY
This section will be blank, and you’ll see a message saying “No results found matching the specified criteria,” until you’ve made your first sale. Once you start making sales, you can visit the Commissions Summary to see a summary of your commissions. You’ll also be able to use the Report Period drop-down menu to view only commissions from the current or previous month, current or previous year, or everything since you started as an affiliate.
Curious about what the terms in the commission summary mean? There is a list of definitions provided at the bottom of the page.
This will give you a more detailed view of the activity on your affiliate account. Like the Commissions Summary, you can change the time period you view by using the drop-down menus provided. Also like the Commission Summary, there is a list of terms provided at the bottom of the page.
6. MY PROFILE
You can add or change your personal information (name, email, address, PayPal email, username, and password). Just remember to click the “Save” button at the bottom after you make changes!
7. AFFILIATE RESOURCES
When you click this link, the page you’re currently on will pop up if your web browser allows pop-ups. If not, you’ll be able to view the page within a frame, but it’s small and not very easy to read. Your best bet is to bookmark this page so you can return to it easily.
This should launch a pop-up window with some additional info from 1ShoppingCart, but if you don’t have pop-ups enabled on your browser it will probably do nothing at all.
