How do I set up affiliates on Vimeo OTT?

Manually tracking affiliates using the campaign tag

Here are the steps:
  1. Manually create (type out) campaign links for each of your affiliate partners like this: https://YOURSITE.vhx.tv/buy?campaign=affiliate1name or https://YOURSITE.vhx.tv/buy?campaign=affiliate2name
    • affiliate1name” & “affiliate2name” in the URLs can be edited to whatever you like and should probably match your affiliate name or organization. The code "?campaign=affiliate1name" can be appended to any Vimeo OTT site/product URL like this:
      • Homepage of your Vimeo OTT site: 
        • https://yoursite.vhx.tv/?campaign=affiliate2name
          				
      • Directly to the main checkout page of your Vimeo OTT site: 
        • https://yoursite.vhx.tv/buy?campaign=affiliate2name
          				
      • Individual product checkout URLs (which you can get on your Products page): 
        • https://yoursite.vhx.tv/buy/product1?campaign=affiliate2name
          				
    • These links get tracked on your Vimeo OTT project Transactions CSV when a sale/subscription occurs.
  2. Then, have your chosen partner affiliates share those links on the web to get sales for your content.
  3. When you get paid each month from Vimeo OTT, you can download the Transactions CSV to see if any of your customers came in as a result of your affiliates, so you can easily determine how much to pay each. There is a special column in the CSV labeled “campaign”.
  4. You can then pay those partner affiliates however you would like to on your end (check, or money transfer service, etc.) The amount you pay them is up the percentage agreement you have set up with them.
