Tjoos has launched their Coupon Widget, which allows affiliates to display coupons, and every time a visitor clicks on a coupon and makes a purchase, the affiliate will receive a commission from this sale.
The coupons in the Tjoos widget are sourced directly from the retailers, as well as from the Tjoos coupon-sharing community on their site.
“We have created a win-win scenario for all involved. The site owners earn some extra income. Their visitors get a useful service that saves them money and Tjoos grows its brand and community,” commented Bart Jellema, CIO of Tjoos.
Commission tracking is handled through Commission Junction, so affiliates must have a CJ account to use the Tjoos widget.
I asked Bart if Tjoos gets credit for every third click or something similar and he explained that affiliates get 100% of commissions from all clicks to retailers from their sites.
However, there is a link at the bottom of the widget labeled “more coupons…” that links directly to tjoos.com. This link is not commissionable for affiliates.
The widget can be customized at http://www.tjoos.com/Coupon-Widget and one-click installations for Blogspot and TypePad are provided. For other installations, the widget HTML is available.
