those Affiliates who want to link to our non-U.S. sites, you
can also join the Affiliates Programs on those sites. They
are separate programs from the U.S.-based program and you
must sign up on each individual site to join.
How should I design my Web
Affiliate site is unique, and we don't provide any kind of
standard template for you to start with. That's because in
almost every case, successful Affiliates will have a pre-existing
Web site or idea for a Web site in mind when they join the
program. You should try to make your recommendations or links
to ShoppingTechnology.Com look and feel like the rest of your
site. If you don't yet have a Web site, your options are endless
and we encourage you to give the site its own unique personality.
I don't know how to write HTML or use my site development
tool, will ShoppingTechnology.Com help me?
though we won't be able to help you build your Web site or
help you learn HTML, we've made linking to us easy. If you
want to learn HTML, there are a number of good books available
from Amazon.Com on the subject, and you can find reviews and
recommendations in the "Browse
Subjects / Computers and Internet / Internet & World Wide
What sorts of communications will ShoppingTechnology.Com send
will occasionally send you email messages that include merchandising
tips, site news, special offers for Affiliates, and important
updates on Affiliates policies. These messages will include
up-to-date information on opportunities that can benefit Affiliates.
Can I take the order on my
Web site and just send the customer and order information
Our frequent catalog, pricing, and availability updates are
all part of our integrated catalog and ordering software.
By using our system to quote availability and take orders,
you ensure that your visitors get the most up-to-date information
