If anyone wishes to become an affiliate in a merchant’s program, the registration process should be simple and smooth. The process of becoming an affiliate should be straight forward. It should be accessible to store customers and easy to fill.
Here we take a look at some of the steps that merchants can take to make the process of affiliate registration more accessible:
Highlighting the affiliate program
Merchants should look at highlighting their affiliate programs, which means that store visitors should be informed about the affiliate program more actively. A great way to do this is by providing a link to the affiliate portal in either the footer or the store menu section.
Also, post-checkout popups may be used to show a popup notification to customers after they have made a purchase in the store. This popup will provide specifics of the affiliate program and send the customer directly to the affiliate portal sign-up page.
Information regarding the affiliate program
The landing page of the affiliate portal can be used to illustrate the advantages and functionality of the affiliate system that the merchant is running. This not only serves to educate the affiliate, but it also gives the program a professional look.
Information such as commission rates, incentives, bonuses, and how the program can benefit the affiliate should be highlighted. Essentially, this knowledge would explain how the system allows the affiliate to increase their earnings.

Easier signup for affiliates
A perfect way to enhance the sign-up experience for affiliates is to make the sign-up process fast and simple. This can be achieved by providing key sign-up fields, such as name or email address, and by allowing the affiliate to fill in the rest of their profile information after they have signed up.
Merchants may also include a social media login option for affiliates with their Google or Facebook accounts, which not only saves time for affiliates to fill in the sign-up fields but also makes the registration of an affiliate a one-step operation.
Customize the signup page
An important part of making the signup experience good is customizing the signup page. It can be achieved by putting up a background picture, a signup page banner, or by modifying the layout styles of the page.
This may help to enhance the look of the signup page, these customization options can also include the addition of columns to add instructions for affiliates, or the highlighting of program features.
We recommend that you take a look at the GoAffPro app, it offers advanced sign-up page customization, with different layout styles for the sign-up page, and it also offers merchants the ability to add different types of sign-up fields to the page.
