What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a reward program where sellers or referrers get a percentage from products or services which are successfully purchased from their referrals. It is a performance-based money reward system for sales made through a referral marketing platform.

Basically, when you refer people to buy a business’ products and services, they pay you a fixed discount on what they recoup on each of the products sold. What you can make depends on how many customers you can refer to buy the products and the customers who actually buy the products. If, for example, you sell Payporte’s products worth 200,000 naira where they had already stated a discount of 15% for affiliate referrals, you would get 15 % of the 200,000 naira which is 30,000 naira.
